I just talked to my mom and she too is sick with a fever. But after checking on her again, she is feeling much better after getting medicine from the local pharmacy. Please family, get well and stay well. Glad you are a tad bit better mom. I hate that you and Jeremy are both sick. Please bring the New Year in with good health. Love you Momma!!
Jeremy had to do a reverse 24 hour shift today (6pm to 6pm). The only problem was he woke up sick and couldn't call off. He was shivering, had an upset belly, sore throat, headache, body aches, and the fever that just kept climbing. We finally gave up with the thermometer at 103.something. I am so sorry you are having to work right now bud. I sure hope you get some well needed rest and aren't up all night with calls. We love you and hope you feel better. Campbell is still talking about "Daddy leave for work and not give me a kiss!".
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL!!!!Jeremy and I so enjoyed our Christmas with Campbell this year. She was so much fun to watch with her stocking, Santa presents, and overall gifts for the holiday. Campbell was never really into Santa this year as most of you know. On Christmas morning we told her Santa had been here so we better go downstairs. Campbell was very apprehensive thinking Santa was still at our house. We had to convince her that mommy and daddy were the only ones that would be downstairs with her. She wanted to know that Santa was gone. TOO funny! Campbell left cookies and milk for Santa and she got a big kick out of the fact that he ate part of the cookie.
Campbell loved her stocking just like her mom and dad always have. Why is the stocking always the best part of Christmas? Maybe it is all the family traditions we have as a child with our own families that stick with us when we now have a little one ourselves. Christmas is not only about "Baby Jesus" (as Campbell would say) and the presents we all exchange, but about creating memories with our families that last a lifetime. I hope you all had many wonderful memories this Christmas! She had sooo much in her stocking.... we had to convert some to a Target bag.
We went and spent the day at my parents with my sister's family as well. I think they look wiped out!! Could Christmas really be over already?
I just wanted to wish Charlotte Symmes a most wonderful birthday!!! Charlotte is a very close friend of ours who we think the world of. I hope you have a blessed, safe, and cherished birthday! We love you!!
Campbell had her first offical "group" sleepover at her Aunt Heather's last night. Campbell has stayed now several times at my parents and a few times at Jeremy's parents and has done wonderfully well. Heather (Jeremy's older sister) called yesterday afternoon to invite Campbell over to do holiday crafts with her cousins Brooklyn and Bailey and a sleepover. Campbell packed up 4 baby dolls and tons of books and was ready to go!!! They had so much fun! Heather decided with Kenzie ( my 15 old niece) that they would spend the night. They stayed up until midnight and were back awake at 9 am. Pretty good for 3 kids under 5 I think. Thank you Heather for the evening to finish my gift wrapping and overall a relaxing night. I appreciate the few extra hours of sleep this morning. Campbell wants to know... when does she get to do it again?
Our good friends, George and Danielle Farrelly, have moved to Georgia. George just graduated on Saturday from BSU with a degree in accounting. George was offered a position with Crow an accounting firm in Atlanta. Dani was able to be transerred from her job to a local branch as well in Georgia. Dani and I have been best friends for over 10 yrs. I wish them the best and can't express how much we will miss you both. Please keep visting and don't even think about buying a house without a spare bedroom for the Quires'. See you in April!!!
PS. I had a blast going out with you all for one more go around last night~~~~ may we all recover by Monday!!!
I was done shopping the day after Thanksgiving with all my Christmas buying. But as of this morning I still had not even wrapped one present yet. I decided while Campbell was napping to dig right in to wrapping some of her presents. I only got 5 done until I heard little pitter patter of her feet. I quickly put my things away and did not want to make a big deal of the new items under the tree. I am wondering now if maybe I should of. During the time I was getting her a juice, Campbell decided to unwrap 3 of the 5 presents. She had all bows and name tags off and was starting in on the tape. She was so proud of herself. Jeremy caught her and quickly got her distracted before seeing the gifts inside. I have a feeling if I would of wrapped earlier in this month, it most likely would of been unwrapped countless number of times~~
Campbell loved singing her in school program. She actually sang the songs and did the motions. She was our star even though at one time she had her finger in her nose. I couldn't believe I was the mother who actually had tears in her eyes while she was singing. When she was done, she told us, "Come on Mommy take me back on the stage!". She was too funny. The one song they sang was about baby Jesus. Now everything she does is because "Jesus said so" (like spilling her dinner on the table, not wanting to do what has been asked of her, or calling her baby "baby Jesus"). Jeremy and I have decided that she can play the Jesus card now. It is still cute. But at 16 if she is still saying," Well I snuck out of the house because Jesus told me to, she may be in trouble. Jesus is the reason why we celebrate Christmas and I am glad Campbell knows that too. Here is Campbell signing Mary had a baby boy and his name was Jesus!!!!! Sorry it is sooo long. The first minute is them getting on stage. Of course I had to tape all of it. PS..She is the one in the black and gold dress.
