Hang around the house enjoy our company
Hallie feels good enough for her cheerleading open house

Company leaves (except gma Carmel)

Hallie no fever- goes to school to celebrate her birthday... takes cupcakes (Thank you Agatha for the cute cupcake book! Thank Grandma Tricia for helping with the decorating!)
Take gma to the airport
Take Reese & Piper to the dr... ran white blood cell count test = influenza

Oh Candi - it does sound like you had an awful weekend. Hopefully you are all starting to get better since the fevers are going away. That stinx that you all kept passing it around - how did Ryan luck out and not get anything?! Good thing he didn't so he could have the energy to help all you sick ones!

Love your cupcakes - are the sunflowers and lady bugs frosting?

Even though Hallie was sick - she sure looks cute for her birthday celebrations.

Hope you all feel better!!!!

oh yuck! sorry you were all sick on Hallie's bday that's the pits! I'm glad you're starting to feel better -- doesn't take long for the house to fall apart here either when mom is out of commission! The cupcakes are super cute too! Still working on my vinyl order got a little sidetracked.

Thats bummer to here that everyone was sick! I hope you are feeling better, I am not surprised as it is going around back here, in fact we had 9 of our 20 kids gone the other day!!! And tomorrow will be a sick day for me as I am not feeling good at all.
