Happy New Year!!

Less Than Wonderful...
We've been wanting to share more but unfortunately Abbey has had the stomach flu since Christmas. If there is one thing worse than the stomach flu, it's having it in the car on a road trip. It began with projectile vomiting in the car. We went to a hotel rather than our destination in order to decontaminate and not expose the rest of our family. Thankfully the hotel had a washing machine so that I could take apart the car seat and wash our clothes. The trip home was filled with screaming "tummy hurts" and this has been continuing ever since. In the midst of it all we are still enjoying being together and playing with all the fun Christmas presents. We managed to make it to the courthouse today to turn in all our readoption paperwork. We are so thankful for this year and look forward to the one to come!

    If the year starts off on the wrong foot, does that mean it can only get better as it goes along?

    So sorry Abbey isn't feeling well.

    Hope she's better soon.

    Happy New Year
