Independence Day 2011

Happy Belated 4th of July!

The day began early in the morning with Alivia awake half the night sick, complaining of a stomach ache, head ache, and sore throat. At 3am, I was thinking...strep?

By morning, Alivia said she felt better. Okay. But, it did not take long for us to see she was not better.

We got up and did our normal morning things. Then I made some zucchini bread for Chris and for my Grandma Jones, who has not been feeling very good.

We loaded up the kids and headed out. Since Alivia was not feeling the best, she stayed downstairs as Asher and I went upstairs to deliver the bread and briefly visit my grandma.

Alivia was then feeling good on Motrin and Tylenol, so Chris loaded up on supplies for dinner.

The kids...they took a much needed nap. By the afternoon, Alivia was not doing well. She was complaining of a headache and stomach ache, in tears. Addi and Asher played outside enjoying the halfway mark of summer while Daddy started the feast...grilled shrimp, veges (for me), chicken, bread with grilled garlic. Mmmm.

Alivia in bed, the rest of us had a quiet night, watching Harry Potter movies until 10. Addison was asleep for the fireworks and did not want to watch them. Then, she woke up briefly to get sick for about 10 minutes. Ugh! Off to bed she went.

Quite uneventful 4th of July. Seemed more like the dead of winter around our house with the germs everywhere. We found out today that the girls both have strep. In 24 hours we should be ready to get back out and enjoy summer!

Hope she is feeling better. We were up with Lily several times in the middle of the night last night. She got sick several times all over her bed. YUCK! Poor girl has a fever and feels icky!
