I planned on doing a Year in Review with a Facebook album of pictures of our 2012 weddings and sessions. Instead the boys and I were horribly sick with fevers over 103 and a bad stomach flu. We are still sick from our trip too. My pink eye still isn’t gone, and it sounds like our cough/colds are quickly becoming bronchitis, especially for Jason.
I did manage to make a collage the night before I got sick! Last year we did a collage of all of our 2011 newborns, so I thought it would be fun to see the difference a year makes with a collage of our 2012 first birthdays!
After Jason photographed his last wedding of 2012 on the last day of 2012, he came home to take care of us. We were all awake for midnight, though we were laying in bed and miserable. Instead of toasts and noisemakers, we had jello and crushed ice. I give Jason credit for his “you haven’t puked since last year” jokes to try to celebrate the new year in some way.
I cannot thank my mom enough for her help yesterday. I could barely move and she rescheduled her procedure at the hospital to be there to watch the girls and take care of the boys and I as we spent the day in bed with a bucket. If I can find one good thing to say about the end of 2012, it is the reminder of how blessed I am to have my family.
I am definitely not feeling great today and I’m headed back to bed. Sorry for the wait on editing and emails – just when I think we are on the mend, this thing morphs and gets even worse. I’ll be back to work as soon as I am able.
