Just when we thought the end was near.....

As Elton John would say "The B***h is Back"! That's right the plague has returned. By Wednesday, the kids were almost back to normal. Thursday, I had to get out of the house, so we ran a couple of errands. Friday I scrubbed the house from top to bottom to get rid of the smell. Saturday we took the kids shopping for their Easter shoes, and on the way home, Ella had a little poop explosion. Well, not a little explosion, a big explosion. So after we got that cleaned up they were good. Then Sunday hit. That noise you hear is the ominous rift played on Dragnet. Dum, dee, dum, dum. That's right, the plague had returned. Dum, dee, dum, dum, dum. Sunday began with an all to familiar smell. Sour, nasty, make you wanna throw up smell. Carter pooped everywhere!!! So church was officially out of the question. Good thing because not forty five minutes later, Ella had the exact same problem. Then half an hour later, Hudson puked everywhere. Then ten minutes later, Ella threw-up. Then twenty minutes later, Carter puked! That's right, all of them, puking and pooping all the time. This continued until we fell asleep, finally, the sweet relief of sleep. This morning though, everyone is perfect. Ate breakfast, played, you would never know that they have gotten rid of all their food from the past week through either the top or bottom. Sometimes simultaneously. I'm trying to be optimistic and hopeful that today is going to be a good day! So think positive thoughts!

On a lighter note, during our brief hiatus from our never ending illness, we played outside on Saturday. The weather was great so we couldn't pass up the opportunity for fresh air!

We decided it was time to break out "Dale the Whale" that they got for their bday!

Hudson found the basket of golf balls, which was promptly hidden to avoid any damage to any of the other children

Ella was trying to figure out how to get her big round bottom on top of "Dale the Whale"

His Daddy thinks that Carter may be the next Tiger Woods
