1. Thank you to everyone who purchased cookie dough from Emily for the school fundraiser. Because of your generosity, she won an award for the cookie sales. I think she got 2nd or 3rd place, but I’m not really sure. The paper didn’t say. She just had a whole bag of toys for her prize. We will be delivering the cookie dough this week! We would have done this already, but the kids have been sick.
2. The kids have been sick! Emily started feeling bad last Wednesday night. She had been absent from school since Thursday. She actually went back to school today, but I think she has a pretty tough day. She still coughs a lot sometimes. And she was pretty cranky this evening after she got home.
Noah was not feeling well on Monday, but he seemed better Tuesday and today. He had a hard time sleeping a couple nights this week, but I’m hoping he will have a good night tonight.
3. Emily’s Christmas Program at school is tomorrow night. I think her class is going to sing several songs. I will try to get some video clips for you. I just hope she is feeling okay! It is miserable to perform in front of a crowd when you’re not feeling well.
4. Okay, this is a bonus – the rash on Noah’s head is looking so much better since we’ve been putting Aquaphor and hydrocortisone on it. And he has some adorable long hairs on the back of his head! He might need a haircut back there soon. When he was born, his hair was strawberry blonde. But now it’s growing in a pretty blonde color.
