We’ve been better.
But we’ve been worse, too.
The last two days, with our sickly selves, has afforded lots and lots of down time.
Something we all really needed.
Another thing that makes a sick crew feel better?
And powdered donuts make plain look pretty darn good.
And a little football… played from your back and tossing the ball to yourself, because no one else wants to move.
That, evidently, can make one feel better too.
And a little TV never hurt. Calliou, to be exact.
Even though neither of these munchkins are sick, they camped out in their PJ’s all day.
Nothin’ wrong with that every now and then.
And more bland food. What is that they say about feeding a fever? Or is that a cold?
Anyway, this was on it’s way to becoming Chicken Noodle Soup.
And it was good.
A bit of art with the littles is good for morale, too.
Especially mama’s morale. This masterpiece is signed with an “I love you, mom” on the back.
And when one runs out of paper, one must just think outside the box.
Like some stickers, carefully applied to the nose and cheeks. And forehead.
Another mood-lifter was the reincarnation of the labeler. A few fresh batteries, and we had labels a-plenty.
Labels like “i heart momsauce”.
And “I love you mom”. With accessory pipe-cleaner-heart…
with this kind of love going on, who wouldn’t feel better?
And lastly, some Apple Cake.
Hard to hate life too much with Apple Cake for dessert.
Unless of course, you’re still nauseous.
Thankfully though, we’re all over that.

Being sick isn't fun. But, those sick days sorta do look fun at your house. 🙂
So sorry to hear about all the kids being sick but my oh my…homemade chicken noodle soup and apple cake…yummy!!!!
Yuck, it stinks being sick. Praying for a quick recovery.
Looks like you are making the best of the down time. Hoping a full recovery for everyone is right around the corner!
Love & Blessings from Hong Kong,
P.S. Where can I find that apple cake recipe?
We've been sick over here too. Looks like you made the best out of it though!
Glad to read that folks are on the mend. I pray that no one else falls victim…
And if you wanted to share the recipe for your apple cake, that would be okay! 😉
Looks like you guys made the best out of being down; I agree – I'd be hard pressed to be sour if apple cake was on the table!

Sometimes, I love sick days. I mea, I don't love feeling bad – r having anyone else feeling bad – but KNOWING that we can't go anywhere or do anything..that's not always a bad thing!
Glad everyone is feeling a little better!
The Source says

The Gang's Momma! says
I can GUARANTEE that my Gang would have MUCH rather been hangin' with you guys, sick germs and all. Instead, I recruited Dr. D and The Boss for a major tackle. And LadyBug and Baby BlueEyes did Li'l Empress duty. Which was a two man job this weekend, as she was over-tired and snuffly and grumpy. But the MAJOR TACKLE is done. And I'm a happy Momma. Come on over and see what we got done 😉
Way to make the best of those sick days, sending healthy thoughts your way, looks like your already on the mend :).
Great work – glad you guys are feeling a little better!
hugs – aus and co.
I hope everyone is on the mend! I have been praying for any type of sickness to stay away from here…so far so good. Have a great week~
i found it!!!! eeeeeee!!!!
