'Tis the Season...

...for runny noses, sore throats, headaches, and hacking coughs.  At least around our house, that's how it's been going down.  Adelie gets the award for trail-blazer as she was hacking and snotting before anyone else had realized it was the thing to do.  Staley wins the prize for worst-sounding cough, as you'd swear she's been chain smoking since the day she was born.  Zach is currently running for healthiest of the bunch, but he may just be masking all his symptoms with the myriad of medications he is taking to fight off what the rest of us are spreading.  And I seem to be leading the race for largest variety of symptoms, experiencing everything from the splitting headache and watery eyes to the runny nose and hoarse voice.  Luckily, being pregnant, I can combat this with heavy doses of orange juice and hot showers.

Amidst the fun of the hacking and sneezing, we've also found a little time to welcome in the holiday season with Christmas tree shopping, Christmas decorating, Christmas crafts, Christmas shopping, Christmas songs.  And although we did not trek to and from church during nap/rest time for a one minute performance, Staley has happily performed her Christmas program song for anyone who is willing to listen.

I love the Christmas season...even if Kleenex boxes are as prominent in my house as nativities.
