We're fully healed here, finally. I was sick with the flu for a good two weeks, though the rest of the family managed to get done in 4-5 days. After my second relapse, I finally figured out that my jump back into activity the moment I was feeling better wasn't really helping me. After giving myself permission to recover slowly, I started feeling considerable progress over just a few days.
Our little 3-year-old finally was able to have her birthday party, four weeks late. Our theme this year was a Teddy Bear Picnic. I spread a checkered tablecloth in the center of the living room and served snacks out of an old picnic basket I inherited from my grandfather many moons ago. Instead of a single birthday cake, we served individual mini cupcakes, decorated to look like Teddy bear faces.
Didn't Adam do a great job decorating?
I'll be posting a better description on By Hook or By Cook, along with the ducky cake info I promised last summer. I haven't forgotten! I'm just running behind (as usual).
