"S" is for :

  1. Shhhh...because I just put the baby down for his morning nap.
  2. Sick because I have been extremely that since wed/thurs
  3. Sleepover because that is what M and her daddy played friday night with miniature marshmellows on bamboo skewers over a candle flame. they also pulled out the trundle bed and read books by the light of a camping lantern.
  4. Special, how I feel when my husband takes such care of me and the children in the wake of my illness.
  5. Sleep, something I got alot of yesterday in order to beat this illness.
  6. Sinus infection, what I think I'm being treated for, though I must say it feels alot more like the flu.
  7. Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious...because M is seriously into this movie.
  8. Step In Time...because this is her favorite part (you should see her interpretation of the dance!)
  9. Same...because I'm tired of seeing the same thing over and over (even though this too is one of my favorite movies)
  10. Silly, the Fred Claus movie we rented to watch last night. Good thing is was only a dollar.
  11. Santa, our tree is insanely full of presents and I'm not sure how.
  12. Santa, in whose lap M sat yesterday, made her picture and told what she wanted for Christmas at a friends birthday party.
  13. Sad, cause she can't make up her mind what she wants for Christmas so it doesn't appear that she'll be getting anything she asked for...
  14. Saint, cause that's what my friend Brooke is for stealing my M away for the day so that I could rest!
  15. Stockings, cause for the first time in my married life I actually HUNG the stockings on the mantel.
  16. Spelling, cause I'm not certain I ever knew how to spell #7 and seem to have forgotten how to spell mantle...or is it mantel.
  17. Spell Check, cause it doesn't seem to be much help on those two words.
  18. Soy, the formula I just tried out on W because he has been unbearably gassy and uncomfortable
  19. Sanity, that I apparently must have lost in thinking that going to walmart during this season was a good idea
  20. Sorry that I couldn't come up with one more to make this an even 20.

You forgot to add: Shelby and Stone, 2 people you love dearly, even though they aren't there to help!! ha ha ha!

I too, have had a TERRIBLE bout with something over the weekend... woke up Saturday morning and my throat was swollen big-time! Now I'm back to coughing again. Slept most of the day away yesterday and today, thanks to your wonderful brother and my hubby who helped entertain Stone! I do hope you feel better soon... I know its a drag to be sick, cause I'm living it too!! love to you and mercy, wyatt, and j!

Too many presents? I think that's the first time I've ever heard you say that! What a blessing!

I wish I was there to share Christmas with you and the fam. Get well, and be sure to take lots of pictures! Love you!

I have way too much time on my hands don't I:)))

Truly sorry you are ill...praying for you. You might try the homeopathic med for flu symptoms, oscillococcinum. It has no side effects, no drug interactions, is should not bother wyatt if you are still nursing (but i would ask your doc just to make sure). It is suppose to reduce the duration and severity of flu symptoms. I tried it and it worked for me. I am back to my busy, planning, normalcy now. Yea:)

BTY the word "sylph" means a slender, graceful woman or girl:)

Regarding #7 and #8, we checked that out of the library a few weeks ago. T$ put up a fight at first because the beginning of the movie is a little slow. However, as soon as that first song started, she was up and dancing. I love that she loves the same movies that I loved as a child. And Mary Poppins is one of the best.

Glad you're feeling better!

How did the soy formula work?
