There have been so many bugs going around this winter! This last week it all started with M. She was sick for two days. On President's Day the rest of us were so stir crazy that we left M & Jn napping inside while we built a mini sledding hill in our back yard. I didn't get any pictures of it because my camera was in with the sleeping baby, but here is one a couple of days later when M was feeling better and A was sick. Apparently, there were 100 kids that stayed home from school sick one day this week. So what ever they had spread like wildfire. After three days A finally didn't have a fever and was able to go back to school. Unfortunately, Ju woke up sick that day. It's Sunday now and we are all healthy (knock on wood)!
On Tuesday, January 27th I got the sad call that my aunt Melba had passed away. She is my mother's oldest sister and is the neatest lady. She raised eight children, and supported her husband who was in the military while they lived in Puerto Rico and Turkey. She loved to have get-togethers and I have fond memories of summer reunions at her house in Utah. She even attempted to teach me to quilt during one of our visits. She was a wonderful example to me and will be greatly missed.
I'm glad we had the opportunity to go to Utah for her funeral. It was so nice to see all the family that we haven't seen in a long time.

The kids, of course, always find a way to have fun with their cousins. The hotel we stayed in had a really nice pool, so they had a good time.
