Every. Single. Year.

Braeden and I deal with allergies and asthma throughout the year, but Bailey and Walter get sick only once a year. Always during the holidays. :( We know it's coming, we do everything we can to prevent it, and yet...there it is.

This week, three of the four of us have been fighting with a major head cold. No flu this year, thank goodness!

Nothing too eventful happened this week, but my dad did finally have his surgery! Well, he had one of them. The surgeon is hoping to do the second surgery tomorrow. He will definitely be in the hospital over Christmas, but things could totally be worse, so no complaints. We are planning on going down next weekend to have our Christmas festivities with the families. This weekend was the original plan, but with the sicklies, that didn't work out. It's okay though...having it next weekend just prolongs the holiday fun. ;)

I really can't believe that Christmas is in 3 days!

Probably won't see a lot of schoolwork this week. They will continue to read...


Interjecting with an extreme moment of pride here, we'll get back to the post in a sec...

Braeden finished The Sorceror's Stone this week. FINISHED. A book with more than 50 pages. And very few pictures, lol. FINISHED. Yaaaaaaay! We are so stinking excited for him, and the best part is he is so stinking excited for himself!

He has already started Chamber of Secrets, and is really enjoying talking to us about the differences between the books and the movies. :)

Okay, back to the post.

They will read, and they will play some games. Maybe some quick games of hangman and tic-tac-toe in between gift wrapping and nose blowing and doses of medications. :/

Also, there is some baking to do before Christmas. This is one of those times where I have no problems marking their cooking off as schoolwork (fraction lessons, science, etc.). :D

That's about it for this week. I wish I had more, but the DayQuil/NyQuil alternated mix is making me foggy. I'm going to grab my tissues, some orange juice and my handy-dandy bluray of White Christmas.

We celebrate Christmas, so I shall say to those that celebrate, may you and your family have a very, very, merry, merry Christmas. If you don't celebrate, then I will say that we hope you enjoyed/will enjoy your winter holiday of choice. :)

Braeden and Bailey, Christmas 2010.

Braeden and Bailey, Christmas 2013. Gosh, what a difference just three years can make!
