Poor little girl looked like this yesterday...
After 12 hours of throwing up, thankfully things have settled down. I kept her home again today, but she's a different little girl altogether. Non-stop chatter is what I'm getting today. Yesterday she spent the ENTIRE DAY lying on the couch. So glad she's feeling better.
Yesterday afternoon, the doorbell rang, and there was a package on the front step. There was a letter to read.
We have a new friend.
Elvin has joined us this holiday season. He's a magic elf from Santa's workshop. He's come to stay with us from now until Christmas Eve. Each day he watches the kids from somewhere in the house, and once everyone goes to sleep he makes his way back to the North Pole to tell Santa what he's seen and heard. Welcome Elvin, we're thrilled to have you! I have a feeling Elvin is going to help two little kids be on their very best behavior this month.
