Sit Right Back & You'll Hear a Tale, a Tale of a Fateful Trip.....

Hellllooooo Peeps!! Well, we had an interesting week @ my in laws in Michigan for CHRISTmas... We ended up taking the girls cell's the 2nd day we were there so that we might get the chance to actually visit and see the whites of their eyes... ( Let me just say that it was touch and go for quite some time after that) then they started coming around, thank the good Lord, I was thinking about fleeing during the night!!
This the the girlz & Gabe (cousin)
& what looks to be Kait soon to whip out the moon! No, not my Kait!!!....( thats her in the middle, bending foreward, with her hands on her hips. Ahhh,such a proud moment...)
I Think Chels is set to slam big A here and Kait is reloading ... Good times!!
One thing that they look foreword to for the entire year (not) is that we always take them sit on santy's lap ( yes, I know they are 15 and 14, and??)
Don't they just look thrilled?? :)
We also got to see my baby twin Nephews.
Chels holding lil C
Isnt he a doll!!!
We barely survived a category 5 stomach flu, poor lil P was down for 3 days!!!
She missed out on a sleepover, a party and riding the snow machine thingie...
Poor baby...
We left yesterday morning & on the drive I thought I'd share with you a few things that we saw... We always pass this house size chicken,
Isn't it great? I knew just you'd agree & well, I want it!!!
Then we stopped in Indy to see my bff whom I have known for 8 years. Believe it or not, I can seriously tell her anything. I get so much great advice & Godly wisdom from her!! She has never betrayed me, thrown me under the bus, tried to steal my man, stabbed me in the back, told lies or rumors or owed me money... (so rare these days , I know)
I miss her, yes I do!!
All in all it was a great trip...
Except for ... Wait for it......
.............................
...........................
As soon as we left Indy big A started feeling chills , bad gas pains and terrible nausea... Yep, you guessed it- Category 6 .....
We drove straight through, 15 hours & arrived back in Oklahoma this morning @ 3 am. He has yet to venture out from our room, & naturally has needed my assistance for various things that I am trying to block from my minds eye, & therefore shall not discuss here ( I'm sure you are sooooo thankful as you sit there all great feeling and un-gassy!!...)
Unfortunately,as I sit here, I feel my stomach kinda twisting and stabbing a teensy bit... Eakkkk, I dont want it!!! -I better not breathe on you!!!
Sooooooo I may, or may not be back on tomorrow... Stay tuned to find out.
I am just sooooo happy to be back amongst my bloggy Bff's...
Seriously missed you lotttts!!
Oh & please, say a prayer ;) ♥LA

So sorry to hear about the stomach flu. Yuck,. We thought we might have it over Christmas too, because Stuntman threw up one night, but noone else got it, so we are saying it was just something he ate. Thank God for us. Saying a prayer you don't get it. Glad you got to see your BFF. That must have been so nice. Where in Michigan were you? We live in Michigan.

So sorry about all the stomach funk going around! I know how it is and it goes from one to another! Yuck!! I hope you don't get it!! I love the pic with Santa!! I also love the snow pics, since we don't see any here! We have temps in the 70's instead in December! LOl! Which is nice, but I'd still love to see some snow! I'm glad you had a good trip, minus the Lil P and her stomach issues! I'm glad your back and I'm enjoying my gifts from my secret santa! Love ya!!! Jen
