Did I mention we had a good Christmas as a family?

Well we did.
And then we went to my sister's house.
And then we came back home to a popsicle house.
Our house had literally frozen.
It took hours to heat it up.
So we went to bed kind a cold.
And woke up to gushing water at 3 am.
The pipes had finally thawed.
And had bursted.
In three different locations of our house.
We had to shut off our water for three days.
We were dirty.
Our house was dirty.
I was depressed.
Our house is finally clean.
Our water has been on for awhile now.
And everything runs smoothly.
I am happy.

Update on the Goose: She did great for her surgery.  Woke up cranky and was screaming for 15 min straight but now she's doing great and she can hear!

Yay for happy Christmas at home! And SOOO glad that Alia's surgery went well and that she can hear! Sorry about the pipes though, that really stinks.

Your kids are so stinking CUTE! If my kids would ever get feeling better we could get them together for a little play date.

Michelle said...

Yeah for Alia! Getting childhood illnesses taken care of is so relieving.
Too bad about your pipes--why didn't you call. You could have showered or stayed at our house. We are here to help, you know. Are you coming to play date tomorrow?
