Patch was home sick from school yesterday with a nasty cough. This morning he seemed better, but then took a turn for the worse. At school. I got a call at 1:30 to go pick him up. One of the saddest things I have ever seen is Patch laying on the bed in the nurse's office. It just about broke my heart. We went ahead and picked up Mini-me as well, and have been cozy at home watching movies for the past few hours.

I love Christmas movies. They really help me get into the spirit of the holiday. So far I have watched Holiday Inn and White Christmas. We've also seen some kids movies, like The Christmas Toy, and Mickey's House of Mouse. While I was getting ready for the craft show, I played my Christmas music with wild abandon. My favorite? Barenaked Ladies. Their Christmas album has some wonderful songs, including my favorite "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen/We Three Kings."

So tomorrow I'll be home again, nursing sick kids. Luckily we still have tons of Christmas movies to watch, like Elf, Rudolf, Santa Claus is Coming To Town, etc etc etc.

I love Christmas movies - my favourites are "Miracle on 34th Street" and "It's a wonderful life".

I hope that Patch gets better soon and that Minime doesn't come down with the bug. No sharing, Patch!

Hugs, Kaye xoxox

Oh I love that Christmas song, too. Another favorite is Stevie Nicks's Silent Night.

Hope your family is on the mend!

I hope Patch is feeling better soon. I have 2 fave Christmas albums and I think I love them because their versions of the songs are not what you hear on the radio. One is by Patty Loveless and has a bluegrass feel. I love all the different instruments. The other is by Leann Womack and its just so sublime. Having said that I also love Bruce Springsteen's 'Merry Christmas Baby'. My son keeps asking how much longer until Christmas and it freaks me out! I start thinking of everything that needs to be done. The worst job for me is the Christmas cards. So maybe I will make it my task this weekend to get it sorted. Geez I have rabbitted on a bit. Take care.
