Day of Silence

Bloggers across the country are taking a day of Silence for the tragic event that happened on Friday. I still cannot get it out of my head. Sending my 7 year old and 5 year old to school this week has been hard. I just want them home where I know they are safe.  I just cannot imagine what the parents are going through.
  My husband talked to the principle at our school and he said they are working on strategies so this not happen. Why do we even have to think of these things. They should not happen!!! I cannot watch news streams about it or look at the pictures of the children and staff were killed. I just cry and cry.
  Ryan and I have discussed if we should discuss this with the kids and right now, NO. I do not want them to fear going to school and scared somebody with a gun is going to shoot them. I am not sure I even have the right words to talk to them about it. I pray everyday for protection over my kiddos and everybody in that school. I pray for the parents of the victims that they somehow find peace through this one day. Those kids have the greatest reward and that is heaven and not suffering and happiness is all around them, no sickness, no crime, nothing.
   There is not a moment that goes by that I do not think of that event and everybody that was involved in it.  My heart hurts and I wish I could just go to Newton and give everybody a great big hug.

     Just pray!!!

After nursing everybody back to health I got a case of it. I was miserable. It was awful.



He came out in his doctors coat to make me feel better the day we were both sick.

Doing some shopping at old Navy and she loved this dog every time. She was given it kisses, and I am cringing because of all the sickness going around.

Bold move Jake.

He wanted to feel like he was home where it was really cold.



Still trying to learn about how much tp to use.

Sickness and fun with elf on the shelf

Gosh! What a week we have had. We have been dealing with the stomach flu since last Saturday. I am so over this. It has hit every member of the family except for Ryan. He could still get it though. It is so bad. It takes about 3 days to recover from it. The kids felt fine one day, and then the next threw up again. I am just glad it will be over and done with before Christmas. I still feel yucky at times.
This is going around like crazy . Our school had half the school out. About where you live?

On a good note, we have had fun with Jake, our elf on the shelf.
I am always wanting to come up with new ways, but it gets harder. I found a couple of iPhone apps that give ideas, so I was excited about that .
Hopefully we will be back to health soon!
