|SILLY GRIN IS JUST HOW I'VE FELT|
We are all doing MUCH MUCH better. Truthfully, not totally 100%, but good enough to enjoy things now. WOW, what a stomach virus that was. A total of 15 people in our family came down with it. How ridiculous huh? Can we say contagious? I soo appreciate your prayers. Both my parents and Sam escaped and I can't begin to express how grateful we all were. A small consolation over the whole thing was that Melody will spend 4 extra days here as a result. She is spending the day today with Mike's mom and sister. I am soo glad that they got a chance to see him too. I decided to take advantage of the time to go through some of my pictures and get this up. And we still have ALL DAY tomorrow to enjoy. They will fly home Saturday morning. Mike has really missed his little family. I am so grateful he is always so willing to share them. Too bad getting away from the dairy is so hard. They did skype a couple of times and that was nice. My tummy is acting up REALLY bad again though so my doc has ordered an upper GI. Not exactly looking forward to that, but am looking forward to figuring out what is going on.
Mel and I made a trip out to Babies R Us yesterday when we were finally feeling up to it, and had a good time shopping around for Sam. She does not have one anywhere near her, so it was a treat for her. We did get him some cute clothes and a couple new toys including a baby Einstein video. He LOVED it! The baby has been soo good, and has slept soo well, and my appreciation for that is through the roof as well. Even though we had to endure the stomach flu, I am soo glad to have had this visit. I am already kind of dreading them leaving, but I know home is where she belongs. So I will "move along" as I always tell my kids, and look forward to the next time, and in the meantime I have soo many others that fill my heart I've really no reason to complain. I will now post a few (and trust me it was hard to narrow them down haha) of my favorite pictures, and a video of the shower. I realized as I was putting the video together that my pictures were kind of random at times and I didn't get any of my sister and not many of my niece. I think I spent a GREAT deal of my time holding baby Sam, not taking pictures...Oh well, first things first right?

I am sorry I haven't gotten around to visit much. I've missed you all. I will catch up soon I promise. : )
Just a quick side note on the Zoo cupcakes. Diane found them on Pinterest and she and Melody and I decorated them the night before the shower and had soo much fun doing them. Not nearly as difficult as I thought they might be. The memory of getting everything ready the night before was a GOOD one, and not one I will be forgetting soon!
