Merry Christmas

On the 18th we had a pre Christmas celebration with Joe and Sheri at Round Table Pizza. Kyla and Emmy came but alas, Jed was ill. Kelli, Isaac, Jill, Wade, Brian, Charo and of course Dave and I were all there. Lots of fun and laughter. Thank you Joe and Sheri!

Too much Christmas fun

Kyla, Emmy, Jill and Noah

We had a wonderful Christmas. Emmy spent the 20th with Gram and Grandad making cookies for Santa. Christmas eve was spent at GG and Grandad Max having clam chowder and oyster stew. Brian, Charo, Kelli and Jill spent Christmas eve and Christmas morning after opening gifts and having brunch we spent the afternoon and evening at Mike and Linda’s. They put on a spectacular dinner for all the family.

Cookie Exchange, Birthday Dinner and Tree Cutting

Friday Dave and I did some Christmas shopping for a few hours and got a few things. Saturday Kyla, Jed and Emmy went to a cookie exchange and came back with lots of great cookies which they brought out for a treat that night. We had a birthday dinner for Charo and Wade Saturday evening and watched "A Christmas Story" of my very favorites.

Sunday I managed to drag all the Christmas decorations down out of the attic and have begun to decorate. In the afternoon we took Kyla, Jed and Emmy to cut our Christmas trees at the Munsell tree farm in the pouring rain. We ran into Joe and Sherry who were there to do the same.

After that we went home and Dave made chili and we had hot chocolate and watched "The Wizard of Oz" was Emmy's first time.

MRI Results and Happy December

Kyla and Jed returned from San Francisco early today. Her scan was clear!!!! What a blessing! Dr. Chang is now weaning her off of Tegratol (her seizure medication) so she is happy about that.

Emmy spent the night with Dave and I last night and we watched Frosty the Snowman before bed time. She is so much fun.....this morning we had a trauma. She stepped out of the car at the UO and tripped and fell in a mud puddle soaking herself and her bear. Luckily I had her clothes from yesterday in the car and so off we went to my office to wash and change clothes. Happy Birthday to Wade!
