This last weekend was not quite what we had planned around our house. Mike usually takes a day off around my birthday just to be home with us. This year my birthday was on Saturday and he took Friday off. We had originally planned to go shopping at the mall while Hadley was in school and then do dinner out and look at Christmas lights. These plans changed on Thursday afternoon when Hadley was hit by the stomach bug. So on Friday Jillian and Daddy ran errands in the morning and Hadley and I did crafts at home. Hadley woke up and was feeling pretty good on Friday. Friday afternoon I took Jillian to the dermatologist (she was diagnosed with a type of eczema). When we got home Hadley was feeling a little better but Mike was going down hill fast. So no dinner out we just got carryout and stayed home. I did get to enjoy the Paula Deen's mini cheesecakes that Mike made me. My man can bake! Hadley and I made a quick trip to Target for some cold medicine. We took a quick picture before we left.
Mike seemed to get worse as the night went on. He was all congested. I was starting to get bummed because I hate when my family is sick and I love getting spoiled on my birthday. Saturday Mike put on a good act and got up at 5:45am with the kiddos so I could sleep in a little longer. Then he made pancakes for breakfast. By lunch he seemed to be feeling a little better and the girls were acting ok. Hadley just didn't seem to have her energy back. On the agenda for the afternoon was watching our Wildcats play basketball. It was a pretty ugly game that did not end the way we wanted but I got a cute picture of Mike and Jillian watching the game.
