Merry Christmas Eve!

Jereme is having MUCH fun putting together the boys' Santa gifts this evening so I decided to do what I do best...get online! Most of you already know but the past 2 days have been a challenge. Our sweet, little Luke-boy has been very sick. After being unsuccessful in trying to get a 104+ fever to break, I headed to Manhattan last night in cruddy weather. The pediatrician who saw him was nearly speechless. He told me that Luke must have an incredibly high pain tolerance as both his ears were the worst, if not ever than in a VERY long time, he's ever seen.

It took us until 4 am to get that fever below 104 and lots of vomiting was occurring. But, Luke was Luke. Although needing extra comfort, he was so sweet and not much of a complainer. Today, his fever still can't seem to get under 102. But, we're praying and holding faith that maybe overnight, he can conquer this a little more. Thankful he was already scheduled to see Dr. G (and yes, that G could very well stand for GOOD-LOOKING!!!) on the 3rd!

Anyways, here are some pics!

The boys "working" on a cold winter morning...honestly, there have been a few times I've poked my head into Jereme's office and have seen the EXACT same expression...



Luke's jobs...1) emptying momma's cabinets and 2) smiling sweetly!



Jorden NOT impressed with Santa's visit to playgroup.


Honestly? This scares me. Call me paranoid but I feel certain they were plotting against me. I'm nervous about the future with these three *all* working together.


Christmas Program night...



A little nervous before going in...yes, I was supposed to be helping corral the swarms of children...I got a little sidetracked but I am pretty sure everyone made it up to the front...


Excited to open presents from momma and daddy...Luke cuddling with daddy so twins opened his presents!





It was right at this moment that I thought, "What in the h*** were we thinking buying them this?????"


And, thus began the 20-minute family parade of musical intruments to very LOUD Christmas music playing. If the neighbors already didn't think we were nuts, well, they sure do now!!!






Merry Christmas!!

We had that same instrument set! After, about 3 years of LOTS of "music" and maybe a little help from me it is mostly broken. But, I did love our parades through the house! It looks like they were having so much fun! And Luke looks like he is even having fun. I hope his fever is down today.
