Our Latest Quietness

 Did the pictures giveaway what we have been busy doing??  That is right...we have been busy with the chickenpox!!  It is going around and we were just one of many families at our church struck down.  Ben got it on labor day and our last pox scabbed over, officially ending our bout about a week or so ago.  Overall it was pretty much a non-event.  You would never know Ben and Anna were sick if you didn't see the spots all over them.  School went on as usual and they played and road bikes and made messes just like any other day.  Just as I assumed that Beatrice had somehow missed it she broke out with the pox.  She had it the worst of the three.  For whatever reason she had pox from the top of her head to her rearend....but nothing on arms or legs which left her with a very dense case of pox on her body.  But other than one day of really being uncomfortable and requiring constant distraction she came through like a trooper as well.  Now I have three happy, healthy, immune kiddies.

Somehow I didn't get a single pic of Anna when she had the pox.  So instead here she is all dressed ready to go to her ballet/tap class.  She is so cute!  And she is even cuter IN her class.  Such a petite little thing listening very intently to her teacher.  It is delicious to watch!  After I took her picture she asked that I also take a picture from the back I obliged..

For information about why my children have not received the chickenpox vaccine please check out the information at this site:

I was SO sad that we couldn't come for a 'play date' during your pox outbreak. Glad the kiddos faired well, (you know kids die from the pox!! *sarcasm*) and didn't get too bothered by them.

I'm thrilled for you that they had the pox and it was so easy and calm at your house! The best of both worlds!
