We had decided to have Thanksgiving dinner on Wednesday so we could have leftovers on Thursday before heading home on Friday. By Wednesday, I was one sick turkey! The cold turned out to be the flu! Fever and all, I made dinner with all the fixin's. Too bad I was too pooped to eat it!
Thanksgiving day, Brendan woke up with the sniffles and Dave had the chills. We pretty much spent the entire day under blankets surrounded by cold medicine and klennex!
We managed to pull ourselves together and headed home on Friday.
I never even got out of my pj's on Saturday.
I did get to work on my Lollishop though!! Woo-hoo!!
The Cupcake Cupboard is now open for business!!
I'll be hosting a give-away to celebrate our opening, so stay tuned!
