Sun & Sick...What a weekend combo

First of all I'm so happy to see the sun shining again today! It has seemed like a very long winter and any bit of sunshine reminds me that spring will eventually arrive. In the meantime the last 24 hours have been crazy at our house. It's for sale because we're thinking it might be a bit cozy in here when the baby arrives and that's been confirmed by having my friends two kids stay with us for the weekend while she and her husband are enjoying sunny Cancun! Jenna was so excited to have Layna (4) and Taryn (almost 2) coming to stay. They wasted no time in finding tons of things to do and only leaving small trails to walk through. We even ventured out last night to Red Robin for dinner and they all did great! Taryn in sleeping in our room in the Pack and Play so she was easy to get to bed. Jenna and Layna are sharing Jenna's room and needed a few reminders that it was bedtime. They eventually fell asleep. I wasn't sleeping great because it's very strange having a little one in your room with you again and getting up to pee all the time doesn't make it any easier. At 4:00 am I thought I heard the girls and so did Dave. He jumped faster than I did and when he returned minutes later to our room all her said was "Layna threw up all over her bed". Ugh! Luckily Jenna was sound asleep and never woke up. Bless his heart, Dave was a trooper and proceeded to clean up ALL the mess and start laundry while I made my bed on the couch with Layna. Dave even took Jenna and Taryn to church by himself so that Layna could rest without the temptation of wanting to play. Sorry Jeff and Ann, she's been watching tons of cartoons but it keeps her on the couch. It's so much harder when it's not your own child, even though I know Layna so well. I'm REALLY praying that this doesn't spread through all of us since they are here until Tuesday and then go to another friend who has little ones. I'm finally starting to feel a little better and getting sick mostly only at night (I'm hoping 12 weeks this Friday is my magic week and the sickness is over...may be wishful since it was 14 with Jenna but a girl can hope)....and I really don't want the flu. We're going to spend some time outside this afternoon and hopefully the fresh air will kill the germs :-)
