Holiday Overload!

I don't really have time for this, but I'm about to make time. I should be doing dishes, baking a cake, making the rest of the bows and some arrows....and some homework. :-/

This is the last day of our holiday break.  I decided that with Bunny's birthday, we have to extend our vacation from school another week.  Besides, after being sick the whole week before, we really needed that extra time to get our house back in order (its a progress that is always moving forward for me).  Did I mention that we were sick?  Huggles got the flu,... the full blown flu, and I got it too.  Hoss got a case of cold sores (I think that is his version of being sick.  I'm not sure if that is a good thing, or a bad thing).  Bunny had a fever for one day, and Bug had a cough.  I'm so glad the rest of them didn't catch the flu!  It was horrible!  I can't remember the last time I was that sick!

Bunny woke up to a waterfall of balloons in her doorway!
A sneak peak at the bows... this was the first one I made.  The girls are very excited about it!

Bunny's birthday was this past Tuesday.  She turned the big 9er!  We weren't quite ready to have her party on her big day, but she opened a gift her Grandma Curtis sent her, and a card that was sent by her Grandma Campbell.  We had a fun day, and did most everything that she wanted to do.  I think we watch Brave (the movie).

Tomorrow is the official celebration!  I am very excited for it!  I took an idea off of pinterest to do a Brave themed party.  I made quivers to hold the arrows, and bows and arrows.  They were very easy to make...just time consuming!  We will be celebrating in style with cake and ice cream and homemade pizza for lunch!  Yum!  I'll post pictures of the party after.

Last week was my birthday.  I was sick that day, but it was nice to relax and sleep.  Hoss surprised me with a spa gift certificate, where I'll be getting a pedicure and a manicure.  It will be my second "pedi" and my second "mani"... all in all a pleasant experience!  If only I had someone to go with!  I will most likely be cashing that in tomorrow afternoon.  All in all it was a great birthday, and I'm not yet 30, so we are doing good.

Christmas was great fun!  Bunny was SO excited that I don't think Santa could come until around 3 in the morning!  Sheesh!  But they were so filled with magic!  It was a great Christmas year to celebrate Christ's birth... like every year, but especially this past year!

Sorry for the blur, but Huggles doesn't like Santa much.
Huggles being sick... he was so miserable. :(

Also over the Christmas break, Hoss and I celebrated 10 years of being married!  Time has gone by so fast!  He is such an amazing person, I'm lucky to have him as my husband... and even luckier that I get to be with him for all eternity!

Hoss ordered this crystal cube with an etched picture
of the Idaho Falls Idaho temple, where we were married!
This took at least 1.5 weeks of planning!  I was SO surprised!
I hope that your Christmas break was as amazing as mine (other than being sick of course)!
