Lots of stories to tell for Monday.
The first thing Ollie said this morning was that the sky was beautiful and he wanted to go watch the sunrise. I couldn’t pass that offer up. [zach – instagram]
Thank you cards for Christmas presents. Ollie started with M’s card and he filled the whole card up with words so we had to get a second card to write in. I love that he is trying to learn how to write.
Last day of Christmas break. The boys and I went to the movies with YaYa. We saw Night at the Museum 3. We all loved it and had a great time. I probably ate too much popcorn!

Last night, Oliver started to come down with a little fever. He woke up in the middle of the night and it was almost 105. I have seen way too many horror stories about the flu this year, so I decided to take him to the doctor. And I’m really glad I did. He ended up testing positive for influenza strain A. We all got on Tamiflu, just to be safe. Zach is headed out of town next week and he doesn’t want the flu while he’s supposed to be snowboarding and I don’t want the flu when I’m flying solo at home. And, it’s been awesome! Oliver only had it for about 24 hours and no one else got it. Phew!

Oliver hates the Tamiflu. He refuses to take it. We tried bribery. We tried force. We tried mixing it in with milk. Nothing. But, finally, Friday, I got chocolate milk from the store and he will take it. Crazy! I remember when Coda got the flu two years ago and Holden & Oliver got on Tamiflu we had to mix it with chocolate milk. Why did we wait until Friday to get chocolate milk!

Zach is so pumped for his ski trip next week. He needed to get in one more good day to get in ski shape, so Josh and him headed up and rode all day in Vail. He said it was nice and blue skies all day. It wasn’t so much here. It was icy and gray and COLD!
January 10 | Saturday
We planned a last minute party for Oliver and his preschool friends so Ali could be there. We originally weren’t planning to have a party, but he is so excited about his birthday. Unfortunately, Ollie got the flu and missed most of the week of school. He was back to 100% but we had already cancelled it, thinking no one would probably want to chance it anyway. We decided we would still have Josh, Laura & the girls over and Kathy for some pizza and cupcakes. He was pretty excited and content with that. He even got some presents. I made these cute little Baymax cupcakes. Thank you Pinterest!
January 11 | Sunday
Broncos vs. Colts | Sadly, they lost. But, we had a great time hanging out at Josh & Laura’s for the game and some football food. Chris & Melissa came over too, so it was a full house; six adults + six kiddos.
