Well, we did have snow too...
Besides everyone getting sick, we had a great Christmas with both families together. Luke's family flew in on Sunday night... at least they were supposed to come in Sunday night. But then their flight got delayed and they didn't end up getting into Denver until almost 2am on Christmas Eve. But, in spite of everyone being exhausted, we still managed to have a great Christmas Eve and we all went out to dinner, followed by a Christmas Eve church service and then finished with a poker party at our apartment.

After Ft. Fun, we headed back to our apartment and played some more poker. Amanda and Grandma Dian were both feeling a little queasy but their spirits were still high. The next morning, we got the call that both Amanda and Grandma were up throwing up all night and now along with Grammie, they were all too sick to leave the hotel. Luke went and picked up Josiah and we spent the day watching movies and playing games. Then, that night Josiah started to feel a little ill. Luke brought him back to his hotel and that night he started throwing up.
The next morning (Friday) everyone seemed to be on the mend again. I had planned a big mystery dinner party at our apartment clubhouse. But by mid afternoon I started feeling queasy. The night went on and even though I had made a ton of food... hardly anything was touched because everyone was still feeling "off." We played through the mystery dinner game, and halfway through my mom had to make a run for the bathroom... now she was sick.
Saturday morning I woke up and had to make a run for the bathroom. And as of now, the only one who seemed to get off easily was Luke.
But all sickness aside, we had a great Christmas and we couldn't have been happier to have both families together to celebrate.
|Wishing everyone a Happy New Year!|
