We have had a sick, sick week. It started out with Cora and a trip to the Children's hospital with the flu. And now that it has been through all of us, we are ready to bring on Christmas!!!! I debated yesterday if I should sew the girls' Christmas dresses that were waiting to be made. Even though they were quickly sewn together and a little rough around the edges, I am glad I made them. It was a fun project and the girls looked darling!
These cute girls have been working hard on a service project this month for Christmas. We were looking at the LDS Church's humanitarian website and came across a movie of a woman from Russia who received a blanket donated from them. We were touched how grateful she was to receive such a simple gift. Each of the girls picked fabric for a crib sized quilt and they worked for three weeks on them. I was so impressed with their patience and dedication to their project. As they tied, they discussed where their quilt could end up and how happy the baby is going to be when they get it.
Liezl and Quincy and I went to the Nutcracker last night. Liezl was still feeling feverish and crappy, but was not going to miss and evening with her BFF.
The one good thing about being sick is the reminder how lucky we are to have healthy bodies!! I am so glad that is all over with.
