christmas part 3

part 3: it began to snow on our way to the vanderveers on christmas day. that was a fun day was ok, but it all kinda went downhill after that. when we got there, terry was down sick....and i was not feeling well. the next day, we just kinda hung out all day and took it easy. by thursday, i was really sick and not breathing well, and linda was down sick. i ended up with pneumonia, and was allergic to my first attempt at antibiotics, which made me even worse. i was bedridden for about 3-4 days...literally could barely walk to the bathroom without feeling like i was having an asthma attack. i couldn't take deep breaths at all, and it hurt just breathing normally. i've never had anything like that was not cool. poor andy had to wait on me hand and foot (which he did perfectly!) handle all the other affairs. we finally were able to travel on saturday...and by saturday evening all 3 boys had had a stomach bug. thankfully andy never got sick, but i have no idea what i would have done without him. he was an amazing caretaker when i could do absolutely nothing! it's a slow recovery, but at least i can breath normally again! due to the ridiculous amount of illness, i didn't get many great pictures from the vanderveers...i think we need a re-do in july! :)
 katie and logan were the only ones brave enough to play in the snow a little! 
 our outing for thursday was at cabela's...i wasn't able to go since i couldn't do anything without not being able to breath. the boys loved it, and apparently it was pretty cool...glad they were able to get out for a bit. we had also planned to sing at papaw van's retirement home...
a few of them went and did that on thursday evening also...praying for a better time next year!!!
