This old cold

What have we been up to since our trip?
A seemingly never-ending cold has hit our family hard. :(
These are some of my favorite cold products that have been helping me out this past couple weeks.
And yes, I use the vapor bath myself, it's so nice. 
Shiloh's cold lingered for a good 13 days, she's on day 14 today but seems well enough now for me to say that she's pretty-much over it.
Vivi is the last one battling through it now.

Vivi did take time the other day to write down what she is thankful for (happiness, dad, mom, food, bed, and niceness) ;)
I found this awesome window covering that looks somewhat like stained glass.
I love it!
Our upstairs bathroom has a window right over the toilet and we like to keep the curtain open during the day.
Well, the girls couldn't manage to close the curtain when they "needed" to and it was getting tiring running upstairs to close it for them all the time.
This adhesive makes privacy so pretty. :)
Just hoping it lasts since this window gets a lot of steam and condensation on it.

Flight photos

We are home!
So happy to be home!!

Here are some pictures of our flights.

Waiting to board our plane and take the first leg of our journey home.
Enjoying the in-flight entertainment on our 2nd flight.
They watched "How to train a Dragon 2" and "Marmaduke" a few times.
It was Vivi's turn for the window seat. 

Vivian eating her dinner.
She often opted for the vegetarian pasta dish.
We used to special order the lactose-free dish for her but she prefers having options.

One of my meals. This was actually one of the better meals. Braised beef!

They also had actual real gingerale (not ginger "beer") on the flight which was nice...especially since my stomach did not behave on the first flight. :(

Shi is battling a bad cold now so she's not been eating too much. It's so hard to stay healthy with all the travel despite the copious amounts of vitamins we ingested.
We're also battling jet-lag and the time change too so a lot of sleeping going on.

Vivian lost a few pounds on our trip but given the amount that she normally eats, it is hard to keep that up while away from home.
She ate THREE muffins, a banana, a yogurt stick...and probably more stuff that I can't remember just for breakfast this morning.
She's back on track. :)

I lost more than a few pounds but my awesome Mom made an awesome beef stew, and stocked my pantry so I am eating well now and my stomach is starting to feel much better! :)
