I had a stressful Christmas. Kate had pink eye which I got plus I had a horrible ear infection (that is still not quite gone) with a lovely pounding headache to go with it and so I was in much pain and misery while I was getting everyone packed up and ready to go on a trip I did not want to go on. I kept telling myself that I was doing this for the kids and Trent, but I never felt good and it was a struggle the entire time. I wasn't very happy and so I wasn't much fun to be around. Kate came down with a new respiratory virus the day we left to come back home and so we seemed to be back where we were before we even left.
This is what we made for Christmas presents. They didn't turn out very well and looked very homemade. I meant to get these sent out before Christmas, but I was sick and Kate was sick and we had to leave and it never got done. I won't be mailing them anytime soon since after I took this picture I knocked them off the table and they broke.
Let's hope 2009 a bit more fairworthy.
