I just wanted to let everyone know that we are still here. We left Friday morning for our annual trip to Branson and ready for a fun filled weekend.
Friday night was the Dixie Stampede and Carson just loved the Red and Green horses. He even had some of the cute girl horse riders waving at him.
Saturday we went to the outlet malls and I got Coltan 3 pairs of jeans, a couple of shirts, Cody got a couple shirts, and Carson got some clothes as well. The deals were the best I have ever seen. This is our sixth year going to Branson on Thanksgiving weekend and I couldn't believe some of the deals. Most stores were offering 50% off and then we had coupons for 10-25% off depending on the store.
Saturday night we went to Silver Dollar City and the boys rode some of the rides and Carson loved the Christmas Train. SDC now has 4 million lights. When we went 6 years ago, it was only like 2 million. It is very pretty. Then they have this huge singing Christmas tree and we saw the parade. I think the boys all had a good time.
So Saturday night/Sunday morning guess who wakes up throwing up????? Yup, it was Carson! I was the hero and figured it out quickly and caught it all in my hand and the boys threw a trash can my way. So needless to say, I only had to change Carson's shirt and wash my hands. I know TMI but I'm still proud of my cat like reflex!
So Sunday instead of shopping and checking out some fun museum, the boys and I decided to get Carson home ASAP. Which is a 4 hour drive. He was burning up, diarrhea, and pitiful all the way home. We got home around 4:30-5:00 and he went to sleep. I put him in my bed so I could keep an eye on him. Come Sunday night, late, I'm sick. Then around 3:00AM Monday morning, here comes Coltan. It has been no fun at all. It is so bad that I had to leave at 2:30AM last night to buy more Sprite.
Of course this morning was Cody's turn. So here again I was going back to work today and I'm stuck at home with sick kids. Carson was getting better and today he just got worse again. I don't know if it is harder on him because he has been through so much but I would like Carson to get better for mommy. UGGGG.
Oh and I have a new employee that started two weeks ago and I have still not met her. I would love to but I'm not sure when that will happen.
If everyone would PLEASE, PLEASE, PRAY that we can all get better, I could actually go back to work. I need to work so I can get paid. Things are getting very tight in my household. It is hard for me to draw a paycheck when I'm paying someone else to do my jobs.
When I get back to full speed, I have some pictures that I will be posting.
Until then, take care and I will try to play catch up on everyone over the next few days. So if you haven't seen or heard from me, it's not for lack of trying. I can't wait to stop over and say hello to all of you.
