Twas the night before Christmas... Day 407 24DEC09

It is the night before Christmas and finally all is quiet through the house only Renee and myself are stirring. The boys are safely bundled in their beds hopefully until after 5:00 a.m. The stockings are hung with care, there are presents under the tree. Christmas is upon us at last.

We spent the afternoon over at my parents house celebrating Christmas Eve. We had a wonderful dinner and spent some time with them as well as Christian, Jamie, and Allie. It is Allie's first Christmas eve and we welcome her to our family traditions.

Joshua has been doing okay today, he has been a little tired but has managed to keep the steroid monster at bay all week so far. We are very proud of him for exercising such control. He was pretty wiped out by the time we got back home tonight and went to bed right after he put cookies out for Santa and we read the Night Before Christmas from the book I got over 40 years ago. Renee and I both have our fingers crossed that the boy's will sleep at least until the sun gets back to this side of the planet but we have our doubts.

After the boys were asleep Hobie decided to add himself to the presents under the tree. Who wouldn't want a big black stuffed furry rug.

And Merry Christmas to Jarrod, Lee and Renee.

I am so relieved that the monster stayed away. The Mighty Warrior shows his strength once again.

Hobie looks perfectly at home under the tree. Just the right finishing touch.

I hope you all have a beautiful day filled with Love, Peace, Joy and lots of presents.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
