We had a Mexican meals banquet (tamales, rice, beans, enchiladas, the works) and it used to be such a lot a laugh looking at the entire youngsters in combination.
Little Augs is getting so large!
Later that evening, I began crying like an enormous weirdo and couldn’t prevent. It seems that it used to be my immune gadget crashing and burning. It took about 45 mins for me to will myself to fill and roll the cinnamon rolls, and I went to mattress with the chills, satisfied that I used to be simply exhausted from non-prevent job since October.
The ladies had been PUMPED with the entire sweets that Santa introduced! They examined out their new pogo sticks whilst I put nana’s egg casserole and the cinnamon rolls into the oven, after which the remainder of the circle of relatives came visiting for brunch and to interchange items.
Madre introduced over grammies and Christmas espresso cake,
plus a ham and contemporary tamales.
We all ate in combination and sat in the lounge in natural Christmas chaos.
While we had been opening items, I nonetheless had the chills and were given slammed with an terrible headache that made my eyes harm, and my mother advised me to head lie down. I stopped up snoozing for 2 hours and spent the remainder of the day in mattress. 🙁 It used to be reassuring to grasp that the ladies had been cared for and taking part in enjoying with the cousins, however I used to be tremendous bummed to actually omit Christmas. The circle of relatives ended up heading out round 5pm, when P and Liv each crashed out (Liv got here down with a fever, too) and all of us ended up snoozing right through the remainder of the day and into the evening. The Pilot used to be long past this 12 months which used to be a bit of of a bummer, too. He spent his Christmas in Puerto Rico so we did stockings prior to he left.

The excellent information is that Liv’s fever broke in a single day and she or he used to be doing nice, and I used to be feeling manner higher via the day before today morning.
