I HATE it when my kids are sick. It makes them do things like wake up at 3 in the morning (Jansen seriously did this today) and never go back to sleep. Which means daddy goes and sleeps on the couch while Jansen watches Madagascar. It seems like every winter the colds start coming and they NEVER STOP. I swear Jansen had a cold all winter last year. Which makes it really hard to decide if he should go to nursery, play at a friend's house, etc. in case he may be contagious. And I can't even keep track if he is "contagious" because all the colds just run into each other and I can't tell when one stopped and one started!!!
But winter time means fires in the fireplace and I love that. A few nights ago I sat in front of it and ate peppermint ice cream...what could be better than that! Here are some pictures of the kids SAFELY enjoying the fire. I think they are warming their toes!
