Misery loves company


or at least sleeping-crashed-out-on-someone-else’s-couch misery does.


Remember we all got sick again?

We drug (or dragged.  Seriously, which one are you supposed to use?) our snot-nosed selves to my parents’ house on my Dad’s birthday.

(Remember this dude?  The one who wont let me show his face on my blog?)



No worries… he was the one who shared his germs with us earlier, so we knew we weren’t going to get him sick for his birthday.

Happy Influenza to You!


An hour into the festivities, this was the scene:


Mr. Daddy had crashed. But not without Hoss the Wonder Lap Dog.




A little while later, apparently Itty Bit had hit a wall too.




My poor mother had gone two days without sleep and can never resist a slumbering child. 


Dad and I ate our respective ice cream concoctions, took ninja photos, and poked good fun at the snoring trio.


Apparently we really know how to party.




And in a bit of seriousness… happy belated birthday daddy.

I know I was a real bugger those first 14 years (give or take another decade).  I’ve always known you love me.  I hope you know that I do too.

Oh my you poor family! Man, our preschoolers are dropping like flies too. I came down with strep but was quickly healed with a fast acting antibiotic. Hope you all feel better SOON!!!

Love the last sentiment. I hope you all feel better soon!

I feel the same about my daddy. I hope your family is on the mend this week!!!

Awe, that's just awful! I hope y'all feel better soon and we see more of Itty Bit's mischievious ways rather than this sad, pathetic little boy who is napping on daddy's arm. :(

Happy Birthday to your dad!

Love the lap dog pic.

Hoss looks poised and posed.

Mr. Daddy,umm, not so much.

Aww Happy Birthday to your daddy and ya'll need to kick that mess out of the house. I am thinking a spray down with bleach should fix it

Those nasty germs need to stay far away from you all!

Love it! And yes definitely needed to take a picture of that sleeping trio. Sorry everyone was sick though.

I have so many pictures of my husband sleeping in funny places as he can fall asleep anywhere and does.

I'd be careful if I were you. Sleep lightly. Your husband may want revenge.

The 14 years may be a little on the short side :-) Thank you and all your readers. And YES, I know. Love You

Ha! Love this. Well, not the illness...

But I LOVE that pic of Hoss and Mr. Daddy. That's a good dog.

Hope you're all feeling on the mend now.

And happy birthday to your daddy - he must be awesome, to have raised you!

Being tired and sick aside, the picture of those three is quite sweet. :)

Hope everyone's much better now.
