Marshmallow Pilgrim Hats and a sick child

OK, so today has been the laziest day ever. I don't think I have really done anything. The only think that I have done today is check out other people's blogs and I found this. I am thinking about making this with my kids for school or something. They are so cute. Here are the directions.

INGREDIENTS:24 chocolate-striped shortbread cookies
12-ounce package of chocolate chips
24 marshmallows
tube of yellow decorators' frosting
Set the chocolate-striped cookies stripes down on a wax-paper-covered tray, spacing them well apart.Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave or double boiler.One at a time, stick a wooden toothpick into a marshmallow, dip the marshmallow into the melted chocolate, and promptly center it atop a cookie.Using a second toothpick to lightly hold down the marshmallow, carefully pull out the first toothpick.Chill the hats until the chocolate sets, then pipe a yellow decorators' frosting buckle on the front of each hat.
I would think it is pretty easy. I'll have to try it out soon.
One reason why we have not done anything today is that Jesse is sick. I don't think he has been feeling too great lately. He has not really eaten anything for the past few days and then last night when I got him out of bed around11:30 to take him potty and threw up. I felt so bad for him. I thought it was interesting that he was still awake when I got him out of bed, but he took a really long nap yesterday so I didn't think anything of it. So when he was done in the bathroom (in our bedroom) he walked out, closed the door and started throwing up. Poor baby. He was so scared. Poor Terry, he was fast asleep! But he jumped right out of bed, I guess I didn't give him much of a choice Yelling "TERRY, JESSE IS THROWING UP"! He only did it that one time. Although he has just been laying on the couch today not doing anything. Poor kid! I hope he feels better soon and nobody else is going to get it.
