what we do...

....when we're sick.  again. (didn't I just write this post?!)
We read lots of books.  
Which is something we have a lot of.  I love books and it makes me so happy that my kids do, too.



We wear slippers all day.


We eat chocolate peanut butter pancakes.
Don't judge.



We wear our superman costume.
And say things like, "Mommy, when Jesus comes back He's gonna kick Satan outta this world"
My favorite quote ever, Thad.

We make forts.
With pillows and blankets from every corner of the house and all the linens from mommy's shelves.  And somehow we get injured in all those pillows and blankets.  Several times.


And then when mommy (who is feeling under the weather herself) starts yelling and having a conniption and has run out of patience--every last drop--we tell her she needs to go spend time with Jesus.

Thank you, my dear little Thad.
Next time, I will do that the very first thing!

I could not laugh any harder. I wish my kids would tell me when I need to spend time with Jesus.

What a sweet post! I'm sorry you're sick...and hope everyone is feeling better soon. I love your Thad's beautiful heart...God bless him!

We have been enduring the Gerken Plague 2011 here...alternately titled...Mucaspalooza 2011. Cannot wait for some spring to come and thaw these wintry blues and open these windows...and air out this house! =)

So sad you all aren't feeling well! We have had the "ickies" at our house too! Lots of pink amoxacillan floating around and air borne for Mama! :-) Hope you are all feeling well very SOON!

BLESSINGS and Happy Friday...
All the best,
Maggie H.

Sickness sucks! And when you have a big family then it just likes to hang around. I think that lounge tents are just the thing for sick days. Perfect list.

Hope everyone feels better real soon.
