Sick... and tired

For pete's sake I've caught the plague from the children. Started last week with stomach pyrotechnics (I won't go into details, use your imagination), body aches, chills, fever. Now it has morphed into some nasty respiratory thing that has settled in to my sinuses and chest. Pounding headache. I am not pleased. Not one bit. My poor babies have all been suffering from the same thing. I am debating a trip to the doctor. But I hate going in and being told that we all have viruses. Then receiving a hefty medical bill to add to our stack of bills for said visit. So tough it out we will.

I am proud that I had the energy yesterday to do a North Pole Breakfast. Wish I could say the same about today. So far I've managed to dress the kids and change their diapers. We've all had breakfast (cereal) and I am now sitting like a zombie in a chair unable to move. Cadence is jumping away in her jumperoo and Ethan is watching whatever is on Disney. This mom is ready to go back to bed. YUCK. Wake me up when it's spring, OK?

Well Fred out did himself! He cooked up a special North Pole breakfast fit for 2 wonderful kids and even a sweet little baby. 
Mackenzy ran excitedly upstairs to get me out of bed. "Mom, come see! Santa and Fred left us breakfast" 


- Oh really? Are you sure??


Yes! It's true! 

Oh boy!!! Look at all this magic!!! How did he do it? 

*shrug* who cares! We have DONUTS
"I love Fred, he's the best elf ever" said Mack. 
(I took that as a personal compliment)



Did I see him **WINK** ?


mmmmm. This may be the last year Ms. Mackenzy really goes for all this {magical stuff} 

Mike thinks she is just humoring me and playing along. That's ok. Someday soon whenshe asks I'll tell her the TRUTH

But for now she is my little girl. *sigh*

Ethan is in love with the magic and this year he is finally old enough to "get" it.  


Sipping some yummy Reindeer Orange Juice. 

Did you know that Reindeer make orange juice?
Neither did I! *wink*


Our littlest little - Cadence had her first donut... er I mean snowball this morning. 

I think she liked it. A LOT

Look mom! More donuts! 





Thanks mom... er FRED. Can't wait to see what else you have planned.

North Pole Breakfast 2011

December is here and with it we have a new guest in our house. Our house elf Fred! He arrived from the Northpole the day after Thanksgiving and has been creating mischief since he arrived. So far he's sat and observed the kids from the shelf and a wreath on the door, had a snowball fight with our Christmas teddy bears, took a ride in Barbie's convertible (and stole Daddy's keys!) and now..... he has prepared a feast! This will be our first North Pole Breakfast.


Oh Yum! Fred has outdone himself. What a clever little guy! We have an array of sugary goodies that would make our dentist cringe. 


We have Snowball Donuts, Hot Chocolate with Icebergs (mini marshmallows), Gingerbread cookies, Chocolate Elf Kisses, Reindeer Orange Juice, Gumdrop Yogurt and of course because she's a mom, Mrs Clause sent us some fruit. hehe

Yes, Fred is mighty proud. He took a bite of a snowball after his hard work. Such a little guy needs calories! 


I can't wait to see the kids reaction in the morning!
