I'll never forget, a double win, and a not-so-friendly visitor

Last week was a doozy. 

It started out pretty awesome with a run to the big D/Costco:


And we double-won with a Freebird's date:


My partner-in-crime loves to help me eat these days:


But the baby got sick the next day, and by Monday I wasn't feeling quite normal either... but school had to go on:


And then on Monday night, the dreaded and not-often-seen stomach bug hit our house big time. Thankfully, it had been years since we had a round of it, but it got nearly everyone this time:



I didn't leave my bed for 36 hours. Rob took care of all of us as we took turns losing our lunch, and Abbie risked her life week to bring us activated charcoal, grape juice, and flowers! What a good friend!! And I can't say how lucky I am to have a husband who will stop everything to care for us.


The kids recovered fairly quickly, and I felt much better the day after, but the effects kept lingering.


Good thing Noah wanted to make breakfast for us on Saturday morning.


It was the first time I gave Noah and Bella full reign in the kitchen to make breakfast for us on their own:


I was um...nervous...when I spotted the marshmallow bacon rolls. But the biggest surprise of all? 

Eggs- with candy corn mixed in. 

Starburst candy corn eggs.

After the week of vomiting. 

I tried, I really did. I took a bite. I sure love those munchkins {bless their little hearts}, but I couldn't handle it. Oh. My. Goodness. The memory alone still haunts my belly. I may never be able to forget it. Or eat scrambled eggs ever again.

You know one thing is for sure- life around our house is never dull these days. :)


Has that awful stomach bug hit your house this year?

Have your kids ever surprised you with their creative cooking? ;)

Favorite Halloween candy? 
Mine used to be candy corn. For real.
