We made about 80 cookies the day before, so there would be plenty to decorate.

I know I said I would be back and then well... we got sick again. All of us. Sebastian had a 103 temp for days, then I got sick, then Savannah was down. Tim was sick while all of us were sick. I think we are finally on the mend. I really was beginning to feel like we may never be well again. Add to that, a lot of stuff to do. Just stuff. Lots of it. I don't have anything really big to do until Christmas. I cleaned and cleaned and cleaned today. I wanted to disinfect everything. I also made some fudge. I have one or two more things to get at the store and I have to finish wrapping. Other than that, I want to make cookies and cinnamon rolls. I would say that means I will blog and I will blog alot, but the truth is that my heart hasn't been in blogging. Not really sure why. My mom says it is because I am on Facebook now. It could be. There is more feedback there. Here, I write and never really know who is reading or what they think. I still think there is a need for myself to keep blogging. I just needed the break. I plan to come back, but it may not be tomorrow. There are so many things I want to record on my blog. Someday I want to print it out for my kids. With that I will leave you with pictures from our cookie decorating. We had a party with homeschool kids. It was so much fun and maybe it will become a tradition.

I think this is the longest I have gone without blogging. I was sick and then I had company coming and then there was the holiday and then I was sick again. I am pretty darn tired. I have a lot to do. I am neglecting my blog. It is like I know it is there and I want to write, but I also want to read a book. I never really read a book except to my kids. If I have free time, I am usually on my computer. I started reading Twilight this past weekend because I was sick. I am a little over halfway through. I have heard I will want to read the next 3 books right away. We will see. Maybe, not so sure yet. Anyway, I want to finish my Oklahoma posts. Really, the most important ones are yet to come. I have some "free" time this week that I am going to use to work on Christmas cards and reading my book. Then I want to try to come here to finish off my trip posts. Then there are still the pictures from the kids birthday from back in October to put to music and oh, the list goes on and on. Maybe when I retire!
