Weekly Happenings – Visiting Santa, Sick Again & Big Baby News!

Hi guys!

The babies are sick again.  They have another cold and while it doesn’t seem as bad as the last one, it’s still pretty frustrating because we only made it a good couple of days in between sicknesses again.  The Hubs and I don’t have it yet but I’m not entirely sure we will not wake up with it this morning.  I’m hoping not because we have a holiday party (without the babies!) to go to tonight that I’m looking forward to.  It’s been a rough several months with all of these illnesses and I’m honestly thinking about just keeping them home until our Florida trip after the New Year.  It seems like every time I take them out they catch something!  Does anyone have any advice?

I’m also having a terrible time with my sinuses and every time I catch something from them it’s turned into a sinus infection.  My regular doctor even suggested going back to the ENT who did my sinus surgery… which was really disheartening for me.  I had been on such a healthy streak!  I’ve decided to see if I can put it off until January but I’m not feeling great again…. with lots of headaches… so it might not wait.  I don’t have time for another round of sinus surgery and the long recovery with two babies… so please send healing thoughts my way.

In less depressing news, we did make it out to see Santa at the Biltmore Estate on Sunday!

This is honestly one of those things I was really looking forward to and it was pretty fun.  The Santa at the Biltmore was so sweet and the boys did well.  No crying at all!

The professional Biltmore photographer almost got a smile out of both of them.  They were definitely a bit confused by the whole experience.

We also got this cute family photo which I love.  It’s a shame my super happy babies were so stoic for the photo though! 🙂

I also have more HUGE family news to share this week!  My Brother and his wife, Erica, had their baby!!!!!!

Delilah Sutton was born last Saturday and is 6 pounds, 14 ounces of pure perfection.  She came a few weeks early and I am obsessed with her.

She is a DOLL and I can’t wait to meet her!  I was going to go yesterday, but with the boys sick, I didn’t want to risk getting her sick.  I wasn’t sure If I was a carrier of whatever they have.  I’m hoping I can go next week.

We are so happy the boys have a new cousin and can only imagine all the fun we will have in the years to come.

That’s about it for this week!  I’m not sure I could have stuffed this post with more cuteness. 🙂

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I’ll be back Monday to share some of our Christmas card photos.  See you then.

    The pics with the boys and Santa are adorable. Glad to hear they did well with him. At that age you just never know. And oh my goodness….your niece is precious!!! Hope you get to meet her soon. Just before the holidays, what a nice gift.

    Ugh I hate that you are all sick! Praying for a Christmas miracle of no one being sick 🙂 I totally remember the first winter of being sick for months on end. I’d say keep them home but I swear it doesn’t matter and you get germs brought in anyway! Definitely praying for your sinuses because headaches with kids are killer! Like 100x worse and not being able to just chill is so hard. Have a very Merry Christmas, Julie!!! I’ve loved seeing your family grow this past year!

    As long as you have little ones, it is a ongoing thing to keep from catching their nastiness😞. Keeping them home will make them more comfortable😊. Praying for all to feel good for Christmas 🎄✨

    While I’m not a mother (so take this with a grain of salt!), I feel like keeping the boys home might just be the best option at this point. Maybe you’ll go stir crazy but I feel like that’s better than two sick toddlers? Just my thoughts though!

    Those Santa pictures are adorable – even if they boys seem very confused by the jolly old man.

    Congrats to your brother and SIL! What a cute little girl!

    I hear your pain. My grandkids go to daycare and one is in kindergarten. They get sick alot being around other kids. If you wash their hands alot it may help. Also keeping them warm and hydrated is good too. All these changes in temperature breed alot of germs in the air. Hope that you are feeling better soon. The pictures are great and they look so cute!!! Congratulations on your new niece. She’s a doll!!! Take care, peace and wishes for a Happy Holiday Season.
