Over the last almost 6 years (I can't believe it's been that long) I have blogged A LOT about my kids being sick.  Most of the time their sickness has occurred when my family has been traveling particularly during cold and flu season.  We have so many puke stories, it's CRAZY!!  Don't believe me?  Here are a few of my blog posts to prove it (this does not even include the Christmas of 2011 when my kids were sick for an ENTIRE MONTH straight!!!!  I was so out of it I couldn't even blog about that one):

I literally felt insane during those times and even more so when I got little to no sympathy from others around me who were doing there best to cheer me up and make light of the situation.

I'm happy to report that things have changed!  For the whole story of what we changed and why, you can read my blog entitled "Change the Face of Cold and Flu Season."

For this post I just want to give you a glimpse of the differences between our Christmas in 2010 (before the change) and 2013 (after the change) through a few pictures:

Christmas 2010
Decorating cookies with the cousins.  Notice the latex gloves.  This was moments before Micah tossed his cookies.
The day we tried to get our flight changed because both the boys were still puking.   Here they are up for a few minutes between naps and being sick before we hit the road for Omaha and then on to our flight home in which Micah continued to be sick (throwing up every day  for almost 2 WEEKS).  To read more of that CRAZY sickness story read my blogs entitled "My Love/Hate Relationship With Travel" and "My Love/Hate Relationship With Travel Part 2." 

Christmas 2013
Decorating Christmas Cookies with all 9 of the cousins.  Notice that there are NO latex gloves.  NO ONE got sick after this either (despite the insane amount of sugar they used to decorate and then ingested).

A HEALTHY little girl cuddling with her grandma!  Enough said!
The 5 older cousins (we had a total of 9 kids between the ages of 1 and 7 years old and 8 adults all sleeping and eating under the same rough for 7 days straight) sleeping peacefully the entire night in the basement without any puke buckets by their sides.

EVERYONE was present and healthy for the Bible reading on Christmas morning.  A first since 2006!

LOTS of cousin play time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The mommies even got to go out and get pedicures one night!!!!  This was the first Christmas vacation in a LONG time that was 100% enjoyable and restful!  I came home rejuvenated and re-energized for my family.  That was DEFINITELY not the case in years past.

Overall, I visited family during the 2013 holiday season with Micah and Anora for TWENTY days and NONE of us got sick!!!

So, my :::sigh::: is a HUGE sigh of relief.  If you want to learn more about the nutritional supplement my family is taking to achieve and maintain good health, check out my business website here, or you can message me on facebook if we're already friends.  I'd love to come along side of you and help you achieve amazing health.  May this blog find you and your loved ones be happy and healthy!! ~ Corinne
