Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Phillipians 4:8

Happy New Year!

Today, we come to the end of our 'Christmas Break' and return to 'normal life' tomorrow...what ever that means! lol!!

We have enjoyed the holidays and have spent lots of time together as a family. Our highlight is definitely joining our local aquatic center. Our local high school built a beautiful facility that opened in the fall and we purchased a membership to it as our 'big' Christmas gift to the girls and as a way to spend family time together. Once a week, we will go together as a family. Paul and I will sneak in a little exercise, while the girls go to the activity center. Then we will go to the family pool together for a little while. Once a month we will visit on Saturday or Sunday, just to go to the pool together.

Last weekend, we attempted to go to a local mall and look at a new bed for Paul and I. After a 40 minute drive in the fog, Sage decided to be sick in the car. So our trip to the mall turned into a trip to Walmart for new/clean clothes for her and a trip home in the fog. Yesterday, we decided to attempt the trip again. Regan's health was questionable, as she woke up extremely tired and had a low grade fever. We decided to go anyway. We made it to Build a Bear, had lunch, visited the bed store (and purchased a new bed), rode the carousel and then waited for Daddy while he went to Dick's Sporting goods. While we were waiting, I kept asking Regan repeatedly if she was going to be sick. She kept saying no. A quick stop at Mrs. Fields for a treat to eat on the ride home proved to be too much. As soon as she stood up from sitting in Sage's stroller, she said 'I am going to throw up!' ACK!!! Somehow, Paul managed to discretely handle the situation, containing the entire mess in one of our shopping bags. The funny part is that we were surrounded by people, but nobody even noticed a thing! Too consumed with picking their cookies I guess!!

Oh, the joys of parenting!! The good news is, she is feeling much better today. So tomorrow it's back to school (which she is very excited about)!

I'm sorry. We had a similar episode a few weeks back so I can totally relate. Hope your family is all healthy soon!
