Bleh... (*updated with pictures*)

The kids and I are sick, sick, sick with a head & chest cold. No fun! We've been homebound this weekend, and Brent's been at work. Thanks to his late-night errand running and Kelly picking up a few things at the store for us, we at least have food and medicine! We've spent a lot of time watching cartoons and coloring pictures. It would be a lot of fun if we felt better!

I gave the kids some candy cane sticks thinking it would help soothe their throats, and Blake had his EVERYWHERE. I finally confined him to his chair until he finished, and you can see in this picture that he's a sticky mess! The kids LOVE candy canes. I'm a big fan of the cellophane-wrapped Christmas peppermint nougat candies that have a Christmas tree design in them--do you know what I mean?? They're like peppermint taffy deliciousness. I haven't seen them this year, though...I'll have to watch for them.

On weekends I usually get a lot of cooking and baking done for the week, but for obvious reasons that's fallen by the wayside this weekend. Unfortunately, so has cleaning... I have a couple of loads of laundry finishing up right now, though, so I'm not a total slacker. I had Kelly pick up some "vapor bath" for me (it's kids' body wash that has a mentholatum scent to it--I use it like bubble bath for the kids when they have colds and it really helps them breathe better--I'm a HUGE fan!), so they'll be getting baths when they wake up from naptime.

Does anyone know how to make Asian hot & sour soup?? I'd give my kingdom for a bowl of it right now. If anyone has an easy recipe for it, I'd love to have it!!

**Updated: I took these pictures after their bath and dinner. You can tell they're not feeling 100%, but they each ate TWO pb&j sandwiches, apple slices and bananas for dinner. That's a good sign! Poor babies, they just want to snuggle, so I'm off to oblige!
