29 December 2011

We are hailing from my home state of New Mexico today.  Shortly after I diligently wrote and scheduled Simon's birthday post ... I also fell victim to the vomplague.  I think Sebastian was the only Patton spared from the nasty but I'm not sure how we would differentiate spit up from throw up.  So we missed our early morning flight and spent the day scaring Julia half to death while we took turns sprinting to the porcelain. We rallied and compromised with Southwest to not have to pay an arm and a leg but merely one bulging bicep to change our flight to yesterday evening.  We thought we were over the worst of it but Julia had an explosive issue with something that rhymes with tryarreah and managed to soil my entire outfit and one whole couch last night. I've decided I prefer throw up clean up to that. 

Onward and no more bodily fluid prattle. 

So now we're enjoying a belated Christmas with gorgeous weather, generous sibling/parent babysitters, and gorgeous weather. Simon and I enjoyed a leisurely mall walk earlier sans offspring and we have plans to take in one of my brother's basketball games tonight also sans 'spring. 
All is well and good.

Merry, Merry.


  1. That picture is amazing! Your eye kills me. It fills me with feelings that require me to avail myself of the Sacrament of Confession. Gorgeous.

    Hope you're feeling better soon, but even if not, keep taking pictures!

  2. ohmygosh, you poor thing. I can't even imagine traveling with the stomach flu WITH chillins. I salute you.

  3. Lolz at the rhyming. Poor your family though. Cleaning up either of those bodily excrements is not my fav parenting duty. Live up your free babysitting time!

  4. I'm so happy y'all got to NM!!! Hopefully a little fewer shits and a little more giggles.

    P.s. a commercial for pajama jeans just came on tv. Ha!! Should u test those out?? Ew!!

  5. Tagg was sitting on my lap when I first saw this post today (now that he's asleep I can finally type, ha ha), but his words were, "Oh cool!! And pants. Look, pants. It's wonderful." So, there you have it.
    I'm sorry you guys were all so sick! The pukes are awful. I hope you are feeling better for the rest of your trip.
    PS, Did your parents get snow? My Aunt in NM had about 8" by Christmas. Crazy!
