Christmas 2010

This Christmas went by so fast. We started taking down decorations today, but left the main decor for Aaron for when he comes home for Christmas. He was suppose to join us on Christmas day, but Cameron had 103.7 fever, so he opted to wait until this week. Thursday, Cameron jumped off the back of the truck and sprained his ankle really bad. He has crawled up until today. Cameron and I are praying that being sick/hurt will not be a tradition!

Christmas day...He played for about 30 minutes in the morning and did this the rest of the day.

Christmas Eve

A cute fruit tree my sister had at the kids table.

Overall we had a nice Christmas. We have several home projects in works including new floor in the kitchen, laundry, and office. We have a bathroom to finish and so much more. I finally admitted I needed help. Sometimes that's hard for me to do. I asked my sister if she would host our family get together again this year. (It was my turn, which normally I LOVE to do.) She graciously obliged...thanks sis! That took a lot of pressure off me of trying to get everything done. Since I'm teaching, I just don't have all the time now.

I hope you all had a blessed Christmas!
I'm looking forward to the new year!

Awww!!! Poor Cameron! :(
I hope it's definitely NOT a tradition that he gets sick and hurt. Poor guy.

Gosh ... so sorry Cameron was sick! So many kids were sick this year! I guess we should count some additional blessings!

Hope you get your projects done and get some rest before school starts up!

Have a Happy New Year!

It hurts when anyone is sick at Christmas time, but I believe it hurts more when a child is sick. I'm so glad he is feeling better.

I am sorry he is sick! Sarah brought home the stomach virus, but it was nothing compared to his high fever. I am not happy that you didn't get to host Christmas Eve, but I am happy that (not sure happy is the word...) you admitted defeat. I need to do that. I forget how much I have on my shoulders and I try to do way too much. My New Year's focus is on simplicity. :)

Sorry your boy was sick for Christmas...no fun!

As for the blurb book...I slurped mine over as a picture book. so none of the text went with it. My P35 blog doesn't have a lot of writing so then I just open 2 windows and as I decided the size of the picture for each page, would then cut and paste the text. It took a little longer but worked out wonderfully. When I do my regular blog, I slurp the whole thing but then the focus is on the text and the picture are small.

hope that helps!

Poor Cam :( It is just no fun to be sick around the holidays, and he just looks miserable.
