busy, busy, busy.

Life has been busy, but good, for the most part.
Last Friday, we closed on our new home. We have been enjoying it for the past week and it feels right. It will be where Connor and Chloe start walking/running/talking.
They've adjusted and I think they enjoy the new house. We've even began taking blanket rides around the floor (both babies sit on a blanket and I pull them around the floor). It's quite the work out! I need to get it on video soon and share. The entire upstairs is hard flooring, either wood, laminate or tile. So there is plenty of space for blanket rides!
Our house has been hit by the stomach flu. I think our last victim is on the road to recovery. Wednesday night Chloe started the "fun", followed by myself, Connor and last night, Chad. Yuck, yuck, yuck. I hope it's a one time event, as I'm not looking forward to the next time. Chad was a trooper and helped with clean up. Needless to say, the washing machine got a workout through the night.
Unfortunately, we canceled out Thanksgiving plans. We missed out visiting and spending time with family. Instead, we enjoyed a quiet meal at home from a meal I threw together from a quick trip to the local grocery the night before. It was nothing to write home about, but I enjoyed it with my three favorite people!
I need to take 15 month photos and share their 15 month stats......both babies are growing like weeks and 40-60% on their growth charts. I'll share their official stats soon!
Ok, I need to get to bed. I may get some shopping deals tomorrow, pending healthy and happy family members!
Later, Jennie

glad to hear you all are on the road to recovery. Dad wants to know if he can have a blanket ride from you too??? he says it sounds like fun. It's too bad you missed thanksgiving with Chad's family but maybe best you stayed home. hope you feel well enough to come visit next week. love mom

I'm glad that you guys are on the mend. It is so terrible to be a momma when everyone is sick! It is hard to be the strong one!
