December has been a crazy month for us! I worked really hard to go into the kid's Christmas break from school with plenty of time to do fun activities, go fun places, and spend lots of quality time together around the house baking, crafting, watching movies...
But as usual, things didn't go as I planned.
We have been in the emergency room with Kendall, to the pediatrician with Kendall, to the pediatrician with Kamden, and an emergency visit to a specialist for him.
But we aren't complaining! We are in the comfort of our home, and have avoided being admitted to the hospital so far! Hopefully it will continue through at least the next few days. Then, maybe, just maybe, we will catch a break!
It hasn't all been bad, just filled with worry. We had a great early Christmas with Kendall's Nonnie, Poppie, and Aunt Val, and will be spending Christmas Eve with my family and my sister's family tonight. Christmas morning will be at our house, and despite illness, both my kids continue to have smiles on their faces! I just may need a vacation when it's all over :)
Our break has looked more like this: (instead of the Pinterest Christmas I envisioned! But, that's our life, and we'll count our blessings :)
(I had to snap this picture of all Kendall's meds and equipment...with my meds in the background :)
