Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to everyone! I do hope it is a blessed time with your family recounting the Lord's birth. We will be having Jeremiah's parents over for the day tomorrow. We have all been sick. I have to tell you all about my "fight" with my sister. Things said between us:
Tracy: You never listen to me, no one listens to me.
Me: You are yelling at me, you don't love me.

Now before your eyes bug out let me just say it was all in fun! I know, silly. And do you know what are argument was about? Garlic. Yes, garlic. You see it went something like this:

Me: Ugh, the kids are sick, so and so has this....
Tracy: Your kids are ALWAYS sick.
Me: That's not true.
Tracy: (conferring with her hubby) Hey Joe, how often are Kerri's kids sick? Joe: All the time.
Me: Hey...we weren't sick for a few weeks these past few months.
Tracy: My kids have only been sick for a few days these past few months. Aren't you giving them the garlic drops, I thought you bought those..
Me: Um, I did buy them...but I haven't been giving them any.
Tracy: I give my kids a few drops a day, and they don't get sick. See, you don't listen to me.
Me: Hey, I did listen to you. When you first told me about the drops it was in relation to them being able to ward of bug bites. And to help with Jed's yeast problem. See, I did listen to you.
Tracy: But you haven't been giving it to them.
Me: That's because it's not bug season!
Tracy: I know I told you about it keeping them from being never listen to me, no one listens to me!
Me: I did listen to you! You're yelling at me, you don't love me.

By now we are laughing hysterically. I am very happy to announce my children have been getting garlic drops multiple times a day! So there :-P
I was giving them some homeopathic drops. From everyone who had this illness it is the norm for you to be in bed for three days. Isabella, being that she gets everything 10 times worse, was in bed for one day. The rest of us didn't have to be in bed! I did take a one hour rest time yesterday and today. But, I think that says something. Not to mention the drops really, really helped stop the pink eye in its tracks. It is still hard to get around the workings of homeopathy. And it is hard to think in a homeopathic way in regards to illness. The homeopathic medicines do not suppress your symptoms. So for the first day we were all feeling yucky. However, homeopathy does help your body to fight the illness. So you have to be patient. But it really cut down on illness length and severity big time!
Well I must be off. I need to get a few things done tonight. I'll leave you all with these pictures:

Jedidiah reviewing paperwork :-) I'm not sure what he was looking at, but too cute non the less.

Jonah, doing what he does best....eating toes! Look at that pudge!

Just a cute Jonah picture.

One of the 3-D paper snowflakes we made. They look really nice in the windows. Isabella also strung up some cotton balls to make the effect of snow falling. The combination looks very cute. I don't have pics of the cotton.

How did you make the 3D snowflake? My kids would love that!

Merry Christmas to everyone! Not sure what I think of all this garlic be honest, probably doesn't do a whole lot to ward off viruses or bacterial, IMO. The reality is it will take your body a few days to fight off an illness, either way, so most of the time -- time is what your body needs, and fluids. My kid is very rarely sick (however he used to get ill when he was in daycare) and I don't give him any garlic drops. LOL. But, hey if it "works" for Tracy - excellent and she should keep it up! xoxo
