Elizabeth stayed home exhausted from throwing up into the wee hours of the night (and I totally owe Auntie Janice a shout out here - she dealt with all the early morning episodes singlehandedly)
Matthew was pretty happy to hang out, eat all his St Nicholas loot and watch Curious George with Elizabeth. "If you eat all of it at once, you'll get a tummy ache", she advised him. But Matthew didn't listen and we unwisely didn't intervene. We regretted this bitterly at about 2am when he woke up in great (constipated) pain. No one got much sleep for a bit.
