It's days like today....

that I really wish we lived near family. I am sick and Jared has school so I am left to care for the kids by myself. It would be so nice to have family nearby where I could just drop the kids off for a little while and get some rest. I know that I am not the only Mom who goes through this, so I should complain, but being sick was so much easier before I had kids.
Now that I got that out of my system I will get on the original topic of my post. This past weekend we had Jared's Dad come to visit. We had so much fun having him here and he spoiled us and the kids. My father-in-law he is one of the best people I know. We were all really sad to see him go and we can't wait until the next time we get to visit with him!

Tori and Landon love Grandpa!

Playing Bingo with Grandpa and Grammy (via Web cam). The kids loved it!!

Landon and Grandpa built a snow man on Saturday. It was actually really warm that day, like 40 degrees, since then all the snow has melted.
Then Jared, Dad, and Landon had a snow fight. Landon kept running after them saying "Wait for me!"

Being sick is never fun but I have to agree that it really stinks when you don't live next to anyone who can 'take care' of you!

It looks like you had a lot of fun with dad. It made me laugh that you said, 'it got up in the 40's'! I believe that today I said something like, 'I can't believe how warm it is' (and the high was 36 today). It's funny how our perception of 'warm' changes!!

I am sorry to hear that how you have been feeling has turned into a full blown illness, I had a nightmare the other night that you got Ecoili from the peanut butter, hope you are better soon, wish I were there to take the kids away from you for awhile! Love you!

There should totally be a rule that moms are not allowed to get sick!
