Merry Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all.  I hope you all had a wonderful time celebrating with your families, big or small.

We didn't travel this year and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  It was nice to not have to deal with the holiday hustle and bustle.  Since neither of our families are in town, we decided even before we had kids that we would alternate holidays, spending Xmas one year with Luke's family, one year with mine and one year at our house.  Every kid needs Christmas at their house, right?  Since I had no out of state family growing up, we had Christmas at our house every year and I just can't imagine Gage celebrating any different.  However, I know that at least once every 3 years we will have to travel to TX.  My parents aren't so far away, so that trip is more attractive, but I still love the idea of Santa coming to visit Gage at his own house.

Our Christmas morning was somewhat uneventful but Gage enjoyed tearing the paper out of bags and looking at his new books. He didn't get much this year, he got a lot of toys for his bday so there wasn't much he needed, plus we figure we'll buy him some stuff in the spring when his interests change or he becomes ready for other toys.  His big present this year was a personalized beanbag chair. Gage loves to roll around and be silly yet also LOVES to read his books so I figured he would like it.  He sat in in for quite a while tonight while he read books.  I think it's going to be a winner. 

Other than cooking and just hanging out, we did have to make a trip to Patient 1st today to get Gage's ear looked at once again.  As we suspected from his crankiness the last few days, his ear was infected again.  So yet, another round of anitbiotics, at least until we can get in to see the ENT at the end of the week.  Tubes are in our near future, ladies and gentlemen. 

We didn't take too many pictures this morning, we just were enjoying Gage soaking in his 1st 'real' Christmas.  I'll try and get the few we did take posted soon.  We're supposed to be traveling tomorrow but Old Man Winter  might postpone that trip for us.  In any case, Gage will get to see his Uncle B from CA in just a few days!  Until then.....Merry Christmas to all and Best Wishes for the New Year!
