Christmas Uncandid

December 26, 2012 by 7 Comments

At church this Sunday (two days before Christmas) the children’s classes celebrated Jesus’ birth with cupcakes!  After hearing about the fun treat, I had a germ freakout thought — I hope they used hand sanitizer!  The kids response — Nope!

Guess who ended up sick!?!  ME!  To the point that Christmas Day is a total blur.  So sad, but thankfully I have pictures to show that the rest of the family had a Merry Christmas.

Baseball Glove...YES!

I spent 48 hours stretched out on the couch completely lethargic, running a high fever that wouldn’t respond to Advil or Tylenol…even when spaced two hours apart!  Ugh!

Thankfully I’m married to the best man in the entire world that made Christmas full of special memories for my Sweet B’s…complete with our traditional breakfast!  (I’m thankful photography is a big deal to him, too).

Love it!

Saddest part, I didn’t get to see my pregnant baby sister who drove 14 hours with her sweet hubby, 2 year old, and 1 year old!

I can get this.

Most amazing part, hearing my sweeties say…we better take a picture of this it’ll make mommy happy when she isn’t sick anymore.  And…
