December Sickness

December has been a miserable month of sickness in our house. It started right after Thanksgiving when I came down with a cold, but it was nothing serious. As soon as I started getting over that, Ellie came down with something terrible. She had a high fever for three or four days and was definitely not herself. She then broke out in a horrible rash that covered her entire body. I know she had bad body aches and I felt so bad for her. Having sick kids is the worst. Ellie is usually such a happy and sweet little thing, but she was sad, in pain, and wasn't happy no matter what. As soon as Ellie started feeling better I caught a NASTY virus. For over a week I could barely speak and felt like my throat and lungs were on fire. I had body aches for days and was so tired I felt like the walking dead. We seem to be pretty much recovered which I am grateful for, and I hope we can enjoy the rest of the Holiday season in good health!

November 2014

 November is always a crazy month. We had a nice enough day at the beginning that I was able to take Ellie to Wheeler Farm and let her enjoy the animals. While I didn't document the rest of November very well, we had a great time. Brian and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary on the 21st with a night on the town and a stay at my parents condo in downtown Salt Lake. We stuffed ourselves at the Cheesecake Factory and I discovered my new favorite cheesecake: Chocolate Tuxedo. A few days later we celebrated Brian's 31st birthday, and then two days after that we gorged ourselves on Thanksgiving turkey and pie. Not a great month for our waistlines! Ellie is so talkative these days. She knows all her ABCs, can count to 10, and is starting to put words into sentences.
