Christmas is over, and this has been the first year I've been glad to see it go. My poor babies were sick and could not enjoy it. We practically had to force Aidan to open his gifts. Aaron's Brother and family were here and ended up taking the junk (illness) home with them. I haven't heard from then, but hope they are all feeling better now. It was nice to visit even though the kids and I didn't get to go on all the fun outings this time...oh well there is always next time.
Kaitlyn had a great birthday. I was so happy both the kids were feeling better by then. We ended up going to the Natural History Museum and then on to McDonalds for lunch. We had some clothes to exchange at Khol's so we did that next and then headed on home. After Aaron got home we headed out for Kaitlyn's favorite dinner...Sushi! Yes, she loves sushi and will pick that almost over anything. Then afterwards we drove around and looked at the downtown lights. Back home for presents and ice cream... we will have the cake at her party on the 15th.
New Years was spent with some of our very good friends, and this was the first year that either of my kids made it until midnight...this year they both made it. We had a great time chatting, eating and playing games.
So, now it is time to put the Christmas decorations away. Wake up with the alarm clock and get Kaitlyn on the School bus...everything back to normal...and hopefully it stays that way for awhile!
We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and wish you all a Happy Year full of good health and no influenza virus!
