I had high hopes to post some deep and thoughtful (or at least picture laden) words about Thanksgiving yesterday. However, after a fun filled day at my parents, we brought home two exhausted children and crashed.
It seems that the stomach bug that has been going around has come back to visit the Mathis household. Both Jes and Caleb have it, but there is no vomiting happening, just the opposite. It was so bad for Caleb yesterday that right before we left my parent's (and the catalyst to get home) we discovered he had had an accident and his little legs were burned from the acidic poo. Today, he has only had one incident, but it was so bad we had to just put him in the shower to get him clean.
So, all in all, I've been up to my elbows in poo and the associated laundry that goes along with all this fun! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!

we had the flu over Thanksgiving too! Well Ollie and Zane did. I am hoping I don't get it again. Last time i had it worse than anyone. That was only about a month or so ago. Do you remember that Thanksgiving I was pregnant with Carver and I ended up in the hospital. Then everyone at the house got the flu really bad too! That was the worst Thanksgiving ever~!

I have to agree that was the worst Thanksgiving I've ever had! I have never been so sick in my entire life, and still haven't. We decided that that would be the last time that we would just show up at your parent's without letting anyone know we were coming! :)
We don't have that kind of flu here. Our flu is totally different than that. I think Caleb just has a stomach bug, but he's almost better.
