Another Day

Okay so we did it we survived yet another ill day in our house. Question is will I survive the night. It seems we have passed around everything imaginable in this family this last month. Unexplainable fevers, respiratory issues, unstoppable coughs, and now the stomach flu. I am not sure when yesterday became today as they just sort of ran into eachother. Eric seemed to finally be feeling better yesterday, so I did my best to keep him and Ethan away from eachother. Ethan threw up from last night until just before bed tonight. These poor boys!!! Andrew is exhausted as he's been helping out a ton while he's been home. I have a terrible inner ear and sinus infection and am popping plenty of pills myself.KNock on wood Elizabeth has conquered her cough, and hasn't caught the fever or stomach bug. Hopefully being gone most of the day will spare her. I was feeling a bit overwhelmed when Andrew left for work the middle of last night. But hey we made it.I've got Ethan here in bed beside me, four fresh "lovey" blankets for back up on the dryer. Hand sanitizer strtegically placed throught the house, fresh sheets on the beds, lysol wipes on the bathroom counters,bottles in the dishwasher, and motrin upstairs and downstairs.I'm going to win this game for sure!!

Okay so in case you're wondering, no Ethan doesn't regularly wear nightgowns to bed. He just thinks that everything of sissy's is so cool. This night he wanted to wear her nightgown for a little while before bed. Andrew refused to let him actually sleep in it. The binky in his mouth isn't his either that belongs to Annabelle Elizabeths babydoll.These aren't daddy's favorite pictures of his son but I think they're stinking cute!

The Spences Easter Party


Okay so I am posting Easter two weeks afterthe matter. I don't know how you overacheivers keep up with this so regularly. But I am trying. Infortunately some medication i took is keeping me up tonight, so I figured I'd try to catch up.
We had a really nice Easter this year. With Elizabeth being older I tried to do more to teach her about the ressurection. Rachelle Lindblom had made a cute visual for me to teach the lesson with out of an dold friend magazine. Then before we put carrots out for the Easter Bunny we made resurrection cookies together.
But then on Easter morning the easter bunny left some goodies. Ethan went right for the fruit snacks in his basket.Eric thought the basket was the best tasting thing he could find, and Elizabeth as always loved mher chocolate!
