we are home today. burrito woke up with a sore throat and fever. i despise sickness, but i am thankful for some good family time in our jammies today. burrito and noodle helped me make a few more advent ornaments that were missing from our revised reading plan for this year. we've also colored and cut out pirate ships and have watched cartoons. i have a roast cooking in the crockpot. christmas music is playing. the weather outside is frightful (cold and rainy). and the boys are begging me to come and play memory.
enjoy your family today.
