***UPDATE - I woke up this morning feeling MUCH better. I got out of bed without feeling nauseous and feel like I am pretty much back to normal, bedsides a lingering headache (I can live with that) I am SO thankful that I have only had the flu like that a couple times in the 9 years I have been married, and we have never been that sick at the same time. I talked to my mom last night and Eva is still feeling a little under the weather. Hopefully she slept well and did not keep them up all night.
We had a WONDERFUL Christmas day. I was a little concerned with the girls being under the weather (Eva was not well on Wed). The girls slept great and even slept until almost 8 (late for them). We read the Christmas story with them , prayed, open presents and then packed the car to go to my parents. We had an exciting morning with 5 girls under 4 all opening presents at the same time. They had so much joy on their faces. We had a great breakfast and sweet family time. In the afternoon we went to Chris's parents (who live in the same subdivision) for more food, family and presents. Melia and Eva are the only grand kids, so they get pretty spoiled. My brother-in-law and his fiance bought them a 7 foot by 8 foot bounce house. They had a great time bouncing around. About half way through presents Chris was not feeling well. We packed up the car and headed home. About half way through our drive we had to make a road-side stop for him. No fun. We got the girls home and in bed and went to bed ourselves. He was up every hour after that. Around 1:30am the flu hit me like a ton of bricks. We spent the rest of the night taking turns in the bathroom, trying to care for one another. Morning came and I called my mom to see if there was any way they could keep the girls so we could get well and sleep. She drove over in the freezing rain and picked up our girls. They kept them for the day and even decided to keep them overnight. I am so thankful to them. They are the best parents anyone could ask for. They put their plans aside to serve us. Chris is feeling better and I am getting there. We spent the ENTIRE day in bed sleeping and trying to recover. Love you Mom and Dad. You're the best.
