Germs, weather, and broken heater

Well, we are officially contaminated today. Keaton had the stomach flu early Sunday morning, and now Rachel has it. Poor thing! It's her 5th birthday. Thankfully, after much prayer and rest, she is feeling better this evening. Keaton, on the other hand, is having a much harder time recuperating. His two year old body is just "plum worn out" from being so sick for two days. I feel so bad for him! His little tummy has NOT been happy AT ALL, and he has been having explosions out both ends. :(

I guess it is a blessing that we don't have the babies home, because they would probably share in the misery around here! Add to that the fact that our Oklahoma weather is really wacky right now, and it's a double blessing! On Saturday, it was 72 degrees outside and BEEEEE-Utiful! On Sunday, it rained cats and dogs, and the storm brought a cold front across the state, along with tornadoes. Today, it is about 40 degrees outside, it snowed, and the wind is blowing about 60 MPH.

We don't have a working heater in our house right now, because our compressor went out on Saturday morning. Thanks to good, godly friends (thank you, Cullens!), we are able to borrow a kerosene heater and two electric heaters to keep us warm. (I guess the broken heater would make it a THIRD blessing that we don't have the babies here!)

We can't wait to see them, but are truly thankful for God's provision in preventing them from arriving in our current state of household chaos. LOL :)
