All I Wanted for Christmas...


1. To see Both my children celebrate their 9 month birthday.
 2. To see Both my children help their Dad celebrate his 480th-- with a rock party hosted by MC in the playroom at his Home.
 A serious game of Uno with the nephews.
 Princess' second foray with ice cream. It's been reveled that a month ago, somebody may have forgotten her bottle while they were out, and somebody else may have been fed frozen yogurt to compensate. Such a resourceful team they are.


Princess hanging with the big girls.

3. To see my children play together once again. After a month of serious sickness, the two are finally well enough to enjoy each other's company.


4. To see presents under the Christmas tree labeled "To: Mommy." Love it.

5. Snow. The timing of our first snowfall couldn't have been any more perfect. It started on Christmas Eve as we loaded up the car to head back down to MC's house for our family sleepover. 

 6. To fall asleep next to this face. 
 7. To wake up next to these two. 
Pssht, wake up. I think Santa came. 
 8. For MC's health to improve. Two words. No oxygen. That's right, our Superhero has been doing so well this week that he's been able to comfortably go wireless for extended periods of time.  

 9. To take MC on his first field trip outside of his room. MC pretends to be asleep as his overly enthusiastic mother snaps a few pics on the elevator headed down to the living room in his Home.

10. To celebrate Christmas Together. 

Santa visits MC's house. 
 Of all the toys she received, Princess, of course, only wanted to play with MC's.
MC and his dashing good looks. 
The perfect gift. Thanks, Duane.

  19. Look at that little Christmas elf! I don't think anybody, even you, could've predicted these photos a month ago! I love that Scarlett is not even afraid of Santa when that weird old guy is holding her. How unusual! But then, Scarlett and Hayden have met more people in 9 mos than most of us do in a lifetime. You and Duane look sooooo happy! How absolutely amazing and wonderful!

  28. Beautiful pics of your family Christmas. Thanks so very much for sharing them. You all look wonderful - full of love and happiness. No wonder you were a little 'over enthusiastic' in the lift... Free... It must have been awesome. Any word on the B6 tests? Fingers crossed for more amazing days ahead. X Bridg
