My older kids have been battling strep throat the past couple years & even worse lately. . . so one week before Christmas they had their tonsils & adnoids removed! I know, how mean right before Christmas. . . But Gage couldn't miss any more school for his recovery, and quite truthfully, the deductible was mostly met thanks to Mr. Ethan. So we went for it and are praying for a happy and healthy 2010 for our whole family! And yes, they recovered enough to enjoy Christmas!
My favorite decor of the year was the addition of these new stockings. We had to buys new ones because I only had four. Ethan's is the green with poka dots. . . Santa left tickets in Ethan's stocking for our family to go see Mary Poppins to celebrate Ethan's birthday. So fun.
