I realize it has been a while since I have posted anything. The reason for that being that there just isn't a whole lot to post about when everyone has been sick. Started out about the time I posted last with a stomach bug. Shortly after that one had finally cleared out, we had a double whammy of strep and the flu. Jimmy and Lyssa seemed to be the worst with it. Luckily Dylan never got bad. At least not yet. He has had a slight fever the past two days and has been a bit cranky. I'm hoping he's starting to get over whatever it is he has and that it's not something new and exciting to spread around the family again. Especially since everyone else is finally better.
Last week when I was starting to not feel well, the kids took advantage of that and snuck and got the camera that I keep up where they won't constantly try to play with it. After playing with it for a bit, Molly decided to throw it. Yep, it's broken now. Won't even turn on with the battery fully charged. Which means that this year I won't be able to take pictures of the kids in their costumes or their pumpkins after carving or things like that. I'm not really happy about it. I made little zombies for my sister for a cake that I would have posted pictures of had my camera been working. I did take pictures with my camera phone but since changing internet providers, we haven't been able to get the wireless modem working for the laptop to upload the phone pictures. Ah, well.
Before the camera got broken, I did take this video. Russ would get out his longboards and skateboard and Dylan would climb right on them and stand up and grin. He watched one of his sisters push the skateboard down the hall and copied them. This is a video of that. At one point Molly gets in the way, but she didn't realize I was taking a video. Updated: I was playing with my broken camera and managed to fix it! Yay me!
