Waiting for the rainbow.


2 weeks ago Nate got sick with a fever, chills, and a cough. Then Gracie got sick, then me. Nate & Gracie tested positive for H1N1 (swine flu) and so we were all treated with Tamiflu. (Love that stuff!)

Well, more than a week later Carson starts getting sick and then 3 days later Sadie. So, the good news is that we have all had the H1N1 virus, so no need to get immunized.

Luckily, we have all had a very mild case of this flu, thank goodness! But, I am seriously ready for a normal routine. The kids are ready to return to school & playgroups. They miss their friends, I miss my friends!

I told Nate last night I am having Target withdrawls, it's been almost a whole week without a popcorn combo!


With all of our time spent at home, Gracie has had lots of practice mastering her 2 new skills: sitting up & scooting. And oh does she scoot.... fast! Time to babyproof my house!

OH MAN, I cannot go to Target and not get the popcorn combo - it's my favorite thing! I really wish you would have told me your kids had the swine flu...I've been looking for people with mild cases to infect my children. Oh well!

That's nice that you guys have all had it--now you don't have to worry!

How did the cupcake thing turn out? I can't wait to see it!

Wow, that couldn't have been fun! Glad you are all doing better. Your kids are super cute!

I'm sorry to hear you've all been sick. Hopefully everyone's on the mend and can stay healthy. Love the rainbow picture. Your kids are so cute!

Oh no! I can't believe all five of you got it! I just got over it and Treyton woke up this morning with a high fever. The doctor isn't giving medication, so we have to do Tylenol and fluids. Did your whole family use Tamiflu? I'm just wondering how long this thing is going to last without medication. Could you email me? angiehansen1@gmail.com

I can't believe you all had the "Swine Flu"! I'm glad you are all okay! I miss so much if I don't talk to you every day! :) We'll have to hit Target together this week!
