....fiesta.....

.....if I would have had the energy, there would have been a "sick with the ick part III......that was one of my thoughts as I lay in my bed Monday morning after dragging my beaten body from the bathroom floor....

......I'm not sure what is worse....the thought of knowing your babies felt this bad or the thought of knowing even though Momma feels like she got hit by the subway, she still has to care for the babies.....
.....thank God for loving neighbors.....and for a sitter that finally said she could come over.....

.....After a few miserable days, a 12 pack of blue gatorade, Stefan quarantining himself in the guest room, 14 loads of laundry, fresh bedsheets and a house scoured and scrubbed in clorox, we are ick free.....

......and that's the last I am going to talk about the ick.....

....so, it was perfect timing that the girls received their long awaited crowns Mimi and JJ bought them from Fiesta in San Antonio......

......we had a lot to celebrate on our first healthy day in 7 days......



......my little loves are laughing again, their big blue eyes are glimmering and it's good to be back in the happy house.....

......after I fitted their crowns, we decided to have our own Fiesta.... 


......then it was time to have a pretend Fiesta parade.....I am so glad that this picture exhibits Elsie marching in her parade.....she has just started to enter into the imaginary phase and it's been euphoric to observe.....

.....I love her creativity and brilliance.....


.....when I called out that it was "nighty night" time, my little mischievous one tried to hide from me.....in her own bedroom.....behind the rails of Elsie's bed.....she can put a smile on my face in a nanosecond....


......fiesta turned to siesta in no time.....

.....and I am ever so thankful that we get to plan some outside adventures the rest of the week......that we get to see some friends.....that we can enjoy a hearty meal......and just make the rest of the week our own fiesta.....

......we just might wear these crowns for a long, long time.....

OH NO! You got hit with it too? Did someone pack you a picnic and take you to the park to lay while feeding you gatorade every 15 minutes? You deserved it!! So nice of your friends and neighbors to help with your beautiful kid when you were sick! Those hats make me wanna join a conga-line!! Glad everyone is better! xoxo
