The Illnesses Have Ended!

FINALLY we're both well. Sean's bout with duo kidney stones seems to finally be over so other than the usual sniffles from the weather change, we're both healthy. You don't realize how much you take your health for granted until you get sick. We haven't had a whole lot going on the past week. We're slowly gearing up for the holidays. I think we're getting all of the Christmas stuff out of the attic this week so we can go through it and see what we have. We pretty much know what we're getting most people for Christmas. We know what our Thanksgiving dinner responsibilities are going to be. Now all we need to do is stick to our budget. Easier said than done.

We had this kids this past weekend. Dog duty is so much easier when the kids are here. Sarah loves taking the dog out. Even when the weather is horrible she asks if she can take the dog for a walk. So we bundle her up and send her out. On Saturday I went shopping with my mom in Tuscola. It was really cold and rainy but we still had a good time. I didn't buy much but my mom got several things. Then Sunday we tried out a new church. We all seemed to like it, especially the kids. It's the First Christian Church in Champaign. We were all in amazement about how big it was. The children's wing was enormous. They even have a full size indoor playground. We have the kids again this weekend and we talked about going on a short trip to Arthur. We'll have to see, though.

Like I said, nothing much exciting going on this week.
