A Lazy Day

John had to work today, so I had some fun things planned to do with the kids. We were going to the library for a Narnia party they were hosting in anticipation of the release of The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe next month. We just finished reading the book together as a family, and the kids were excited because they were going to serve Turkish delight at the party. I'm still not really sure what Turkish delight is exactly, but it sounds nice. Also, there is a pond behind our library that is home to lots of ducks and sometimes geese. I saw tons of geese there earlier in the week, and I thought it'd be fun to go a few minutes before the party and feed them...and take fun pictures, of course. Posted by Picasa

Well, Abbey woke up this morning with a bad case of hives. Her arms and face were red and blotchy and her face and eyes were really swollen. One eyelid in particular was several times it's normal size and she kept telling me that her "eyebrow" was in her way. Funny. Well, she's doped up on Benadryl, it's obvious she's not feeling well, so we opted to forgo the geese and the party at the library and stay home. No one seems to mind though. Will's been reading, Sarah is still in her pajamas, and Abbey is playing "makeover" with her. She keeps insisting she needs real make-up though. Make-up is actually on her Christmas wish list! Yikes!!! No wonder the girl has hives on her face.

So, we've officially proclaimed today "Lazy Day" and we're all enjoying it. It is nice to have one of those every so often!
