Happy Holidays everyone!! We are all hanging in here. James and David have both had strep and bronchitis. It was really dicey with James for about a week, but no hospital trip this time! And no pneumonia!!! When the asthma is bad like that it is like having a newborn again. Up every 3-4 hours for treatments. I just sleep with him to make it easier. I have to say that this year has been wonderful for James in terms of the asthma. We got his eczema under control and it has made a HUGE difference in his symptoms. He has been healthier this year more than any other year since he was born. I have to credit his asthma specialist Dr. June Zhang. She really listens to and loves James. Thanks Dr. June!!!!
Unfortunately, we had to cancel David's Tymplanoplasty until he clears up and is better. You can't cough or sneeze during your recovery time and David's cough is terrible right now. Poor Bunny! The doctor is thinking maybe the 29th. At least he won't be in pain on Christmas day so that is a real blessing. Today I am attempting to make and decorate gingerbread cookies from scratch. I have never baked a cookie from scratch in my entire life. The boys will be my helpers and my Mom is here to help too. So, I will take photos of the mayhem for you:)
EDITED TO ADD: I made gingerbread cookies!!! From scratch!!! I have NEVER baked anything from scratch. The boys and Mom helped with the mixing and rolling and cutting. Then after they were all baked we sat down at the table with tons of sprinkles and icing. SO MUCH FUN! But, boy am I tired!! My husband said I only did it so I could decorate them. He knows me so well;)
The rest of this grouping are postcards from my collection. You know how I can never pass by a bird with out grabbing it! LOL!! I hope you love them! Love, Jamie
