i'm still alive- just in case you were wondering. & tons of pictures. tons.

so do you guys remember when i was all: "hooray! back to real life! giveaways & happy things coming your way!"

but then i was all: "...i'm also sick. but it's cool, i can do stuff when i'm sick. i'm amazing!"

but then i was really like: "omg. i'm so sick. i'm going to die. this has to be more than the flu- maybe a new strain..."

you guys- it was terrible. more terrible than a regular flu. so of course i googled...& came up with Meningitis. which fit all my symptoms (cause i'm a Dr & all) & didn't sound too terrible...until i got to this part: "...however, bacterial meningitis infections are extremely serious, and may result in death or brain damage, even if treated."

have i mentioned i'm a wicked hypochondriac? yeah. hardcore. so i had a rough few days where i brought up the fact that we still don't have a will, to the husband, like 20 times.

he told me that i wasn't dying & to shut it so he could watch Sports Center.

for once- he was right. i'm still alive & it was just the flu (although i'm still pretty sure it was like the mega flu or something) ...but we still need to make a will. that one is staying on the "To Do" list.

anyway- so i didn't get around to much this week, besides going to work (yeah, i'm that annoying co-worker), trying to swallow (my throat people- it's on fire) & sweating in my sleep. oh yeah, i also have 2 kids that still needed baths, food & books read to them 1500 times.

but i did manage (last night) to finally upload the rest of my pictures from 2011. i think. at least the important ones.

so today (even though i'm still a bit woozy & swallowing even ice cream feels like razor blades) i'm just going to throw a bunch of pictures your way & call it a week.
but i do promise to get the Mary Kay Giveaway up & running on Monday (it's like $90 worth of stuff people- it's awesome) pretty promise.

ok- so here we go:

remember when we went to the fair? back in oct? yeah.

awww- right?

& then brynn had a 1st birthday party (but i'm going to save those for their own post. not because they're amazing pictures (because they're totally not) but because it's only fair.)

so moving on- Christmas! i actually don't think i got any pictures of the girls opening present..i feel like that makes me a semi-horrible parents. but i did get a video...which i don't have. so later.
but i did make them put on dresses & go to church- & that was documented:

see how they're both still & looking around like- "wtf?!" - pretty sure it's because i yelled, "STOP! HAMMER TIME!"

& in case you were wondering- yes, the lights are still up on it. i think i'll leave them- i like it!
& you know what? i think that's it. for now.
i'm sorry for the overload- but what choice did i have? i had to give you something!

ok- have a fabulous weekend everyone.

I'm glad you're back & alive!! Sorry you've been so sick, but hopefully you'll be back to your normal self soon. Your girls are precious, getting even cuter as time goes on, if that's even possible. I also love the lights on the tee pee, it's so fun! Can't wait to see Brynn's birthday pics!

Sarah said...

LOL! Google is a terrible tool when you’re sick! I LOVE the girls’ Christmas dresses! Also, that tee pee puts the little pop-up house we got Sydney this year to shame. Totally awesome!

Cheri said...

Seriously gorgeous pictures of the girls. The ones where they are smiling and holding hands? I might have fainted once or four times.
Sorry you had the plague, glad you are feeling better!
And Mr.TBird- I didn't even recognize him! Shaved!!!!

Stop...Hammer Time!

Glad you're feeling better & are back to blogging. I hope you all had a Merry Christmas!

Oh, and I love that you have chickens running around your yard -- very awesome and something that we definitely don't have around here in Philly!
