Sad momma

I am one sad momma tonight. I work in a clinic and the flu has been spreading like wild fire, so I knew it would be just a matter of time before I got it if I was going to...but serously, did it have to be today on Christams Eve?!

I went in to work this morning and got swabbed and sure enough I was positive for the flu. I've been feeling fine and the only reason I wanted to be examined was because I thought I had a sinus infection. Nope, the flu. I got sent home and was told to not to hold my sweet girl or get to close to her to avoid giving her the flu. She was in the clinic this morning as well for a goopy eye so we went ahead and swabbed her for the flu while she was there, negative thank goodness! 

We had Christmas at my house tonight and it was so hard not holding E and helping her open presents and tomorrow we are suppose to have Christmas with my husbands family but E and I will be missing out on that. This sucks, her first Christmas and I can't even hold her or help her open gifts. I'm probably rambling on but I'm pretty upset about ruining E's first Christmas :(

I also wore a mask tonight to avoid getting anyone else sick, thank goodness my sweet niece didn't want me to be the only one wearing a silly mask so she wore one too! Love her! :)

I'm going to make the best out of this holiday and enjoy my sweet girl no matter what! 

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!

I love the holidays

It's been a crazy few weeks between Thanksgiving dinners and trying to Christmas shop! 

We had a good Thanksgiving but my little family was pretty tired after our busy day! We spent that morning at Z parent's house. We listened to Christmas music and finished up cooking the last of the sides for our lunch. The kids played and the guys watched football, which isn't a good idea when your baby is in the next room sleeping! After lunch at my in laws we made our way to my dad's house to visit with them. They had just finished eating and everyone was lounging around watching the football game. E is the center of attention of course and has everyone fighting over who is going to hold her! Sh speak mind one but, she knows she's spoiled :) 

E had this adorable turkey shirt on that her Aunt Christina had made for her and she absolutely loved it. She tried to eat the ribbon the entire time, it was like our own Taggies outfit. 
Unfortunately I had to work Black Friday so I didn't get to go shopping but that's ok I made up for it by online shopping ;) 

My family is so ready for Christmas this year we had our tree up before Thanksgiving! I think Christmas is going to be sooo much fun this year because it's E's first Christmas and our first Christmas in our home! It's finally starting to feel like December to but the weather here lately has been pretty crazy. One day it was almost 80 degrees and the next it was below freezing, crazy Texas weather! 

I hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving and I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas just in case I don't blog again until after Christmas!
