At least here at Davison HQ we’re returning normal, which doesn’t mean we’re any less nutty just that we’re no longer running a fever concurrently. All the kids took turns battling through this cold/flu bug and Erin(!) actually had it the longest. She’s still prone to coughing fits even now. In a shocking turn of events, I never got hit full on and remained the healthiest of the lot. That’s probably the first (and last) time for that.

My parents’ health continues to improve. Mom’s been home from the hospital for just over a week and has been able to increase her mobility and strength daily.

We’ve got a Christmas tree up–props to Dave for the help in acquiring it–and the kids are enjoying all the lights at night. The weather is cold, but the crisp air reminds me of holidays past, and in a good way.
