Christmas Day… Day 771 25DEC10

Christmas dawned bright and early at our house. The boys slept until at least the sun was over the horizon and after we got settled around the tree the opening of presents commenced. It was great having my dad here for Christmas morning, we really enjoyed his company these last two days. It was sad not having my mom with us for the first time, we all miss her, but she was here in spirit.

The boys both got a new LEGO model to build as well as a few smaller gifts. The highlight for them both was in-line skates and all the body armor that goes along with skating nowadays. How we managed to survive back in he dark ages is a mystery:) We went outside to give them a try and they both got a good if not very slow start.

Jamie, Christian, and Miss Allie arrived a little while later and again filled our house with the melody of children and family. The kids all had fun playing and as the day progressed the boys skating skills got better and a little less harrowing to watch. Late in the afternoon we all said our goodbyes and then headed over to Jim and Sally's house for Christmas dinner. The food was great and we had a nice visit. Jim did up a fried turkey which is not firmly on my favorite foods list. The boys managed to get one more skating session in after we got home before the sun set, and both of them did very well, I am sure they will spend most of their break getting better.

So tonight we bid a fond farewell to another Christmas. We would like to thank all of the special people who helped us make this a great Christmas for the boys, the kindness and generosity that we have witnessed since Joshua was diagnosed it to say the least overwhelming. Thank you all! Merry Christmas!

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

It was so much fun "seeing" you last night. And in two more weeks I can reach over and touch you!

Glad Christmas was filled with family, fun and food.

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior. You are my Champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,


ps Wish there was a way to beam you and Jarrod up for the day. It's snowing to beat the band and it's a great snow for making snow people. We could have a blast outside freezing our noonies while crafting a city of little people.
