Is anyone there? Hello, MamaHen to someone. Anyone?

My family has been taken over by a stomach bug. It is slowly easing its way through each one of us. Abbie is the last lone holdout and when she woke up Tuesday morning and saw her brothers moaning and groaning on the couch she retreated to her room.

She came out dressed like this:
She is determined she will not get sick. HA! I said the same thing. This bug is ruthless. It seems to be over with pretty quickly though and I am feeling better tonight. Mark is still feeling rough, but all the boys are recovered. And did you know that this particular bug likes to party the most between the hours of 12 and 3 AM? Its true.

Here is my newest Boy Scout. I love this kid. You never know what to expect out of him. Everything is a new adventure and exciting to him. He keeps us laughing all the time. We are very proud of him and his hard work in Scouts.

James, right before the Great Throw-Up Incident of 2011. He is saying the Cub Scout Oath along with the other boys. He also knows the Heritage Girl Oath by heart also. His daddy cannot wait to get him in a Tiger Cub uniform so he won't have to go to the Heritage Girl meetings with me anymore.

I love these men!


  1. That's one good-lookin' Scout! So proud of Matt! And tell Abbie she's one smart cookie!

  2. She's doing her best to avoid it looks like - I don't blame her!!! I avoid like the plague also!!! Sooooo.... I will email you my mailing info when your house is free of the virus!!!

  3. Ha! My boys just outgrew that same dinosaur shirt, there was much sadness because I think it's adorable, but it definitely does not fit.

    She's a smart girl to wear that mask. Very smart. Probably won't work, but it's worth a try.

  4. I would be just like Abbie! Glad you all are on the mend!

  5. ew i hope everybody gets better!! i bet you are real proud of all those men!

  6. ooooooh. the stomach bug is the WORST! Especially when you have that many people for it to make it's way through! I'm so sorry!!!
