Medical and Drama Free Christmas
This year was our first Christmas in Texas and what a Christmas it was! Usually it is rush rush rush, open, open, open, go here now go here now go here. Last year we were in the hospital talking about Noah not living much longer, picc lines, ivs, surgeries, etc. Thank you Lord for an amazing Christmas this year!!
Paul and I woke up at 530am. We were a little excited. That and we didnt want the kids to start without us and us not know. The girls didnt wake up until about 730. We made them wait at the top of the steps until we got Noah cleaned up and bathed, he woke up covered in crap (literally), and I grabbed the camera Paul grabbed the video camera and off the went.
They went straight for the bikes. Boy were they surprised and happy. Noah ran over to his quad and got on and didnt get off for a few hours. He knew exactly what to do and rode that thing all over the place. He even left skid marks all over the carpet. Haha.
We then ate chocolate chip pancakes as per tradition and hung out for awhile. On and off all day we opened gifts. The kids were very blessed. We all are. Just having us all together and healthy was a gift in itself. We spent the day playing, laughing, loving and enjoying each other. It was AWESOME!!!
