The longest and shortest week ever.

I'm sitting here asking myself two questions.  How can it already be Friday?  and Is it only Friday?

This has been the absolute longest week and the absolute fastest week.  How can that even be possible??

I guess because I've done a lot AND I've still got a lot left to do!  But, isn't that the way this time of year?

And to top it off?  My sweet Sarah woke up yesterday with a low-grade fever.  I was monitoring it all day and was planning on reassessing right before our doctor's office starts their drop-in hours (this is a huge plus for this practice Y'all!) but even before that, Sarah said, "I need to go to the doctor."

And, as I feared it was the flu.  I'm hoping that we got the Tamiflu in her soon enough that it will really show a good benefit.  And yes, we all got the flu shot.  I guess with everything going around her school (flu and stomach virus) she was bound to get something.

On a positive note, I've wrapped every single gift for every person on my list except the one item that hasn't come yet.  And of course, it's one of the things I bought for Peter that I think he will be most excited about. 

Also on a positive note, I've done all the planning and shopping for our Christmas Eve party!  Now today I need to spend it getting Peter's hair cut, cleaning, cleaning, and cleaning.  Because Dan's sister and uncle are coming to spend Christmas with us and this place is a mess. 

And before I forget.  Now that everyone on our list has received their Christmas card from us, I would like to show you some of the highlights from our fall photo shoot.























 I hope you guys have a great weekend and a very Merry Christmas!!!

Oh no, poor Sarah! I hope she feels better fast. Your pictures turned out great. Merry Christmas!

Your pictures are great! Here's hoping the Tamiflu kicks in quickly - it'd be awful to be sick over Christmas.

Great pictures! So sorry about Sarah...I hope she feels better soon. I had the flu a few years back and it was miserable but Tamiflu sure helped.

Bummer about Sarah. I had bronchitis last week and it took a toll. Just starting to get caught up on reading. Hope Christmas was good. Love the pics! So lovely!!
