So, first things first. At the end of January/beginning of February we all got sick. Gabe & Lincoln got the horrible congestion & fever cold and I got the wonderful stomach flu. We each overlapped one another with being sick for about 3 weeks. It was not fun. We had to cancel a few plans. Gabe & I were so disappointed that we were unable to take Lincoln to the ERTH Dinosaur Zoo due to all of us being sick that day. We were so looking forward to taking Lincoln to his first show. But we knew it was best that we stayed home and recuperated. I was so happy once we were all better.

There were some happy moments for us last month. We celebrated my dad's 63rd birthday. I was glad that my brother and his fiance were able to join us. The three of them came over to our house and we had a big homemade dinner, all six of us in our tiny kitchen. It was fun and I'm happy for any time that I get to spend with my family. My brother & I enjoy sharing stories from our childhood and laughing about them with our dad. Lincoln enjoys any time he gets to spend with his Pop-Pop and Uncle Griffin. The evening they came over Lincoln & I both still had our crocodile tattoos and Lincoln was enjoying having a pretend tattoo. I then told him that his Aunt Kayla (my bro's fiance) had tattoos. She then proceeded to show Lincoln many of her tattoos and he was in awe and amazement over each one. He really liked the octopus tattoo she has and her heart tattoos. It was pretty cute.

However, a few days after that party Lincoln contracted the same cold he had only just gotten over two weeks before. Luckily, he didn't have a fever this time. Just lots of congestion and coughing. So, for the past week I have been taking care of him. I got him a natural medicine that is supposed to help get rid of the cold symptoms instead of just suppressing them. It seems to have worked, it's only been a week and he's already doing so much better.

And there you go, a really long but actual post from me. I will be sitting down soon and figuring out some topics to share my opinion on soon. I hope all of you had a good February and are enjoying life.
