Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Also I would like to wish everyone that does not celebrate Christmas, to enjoy their holiday as much as we enjoy ours.

We thought that we would be spending this Christmas in the hospital this year. Joseph was so sick Friday. I was really scared for him because his asthma attack came out of nowhere. Thank God I was able to get it under control with his medication. It took a while but it worked. The more I tried to get him ready to go to the hospital, the more he couldn't breath. So we just worked on it here and it turned out fine. He was so upset because he didn't think Santa would come to the hospital to bring his presents. It is very sad when you see you child so sick and upset on top of that. He finally fell asleep but I went into his room every 1/2 hour to see if he was ok. He woke up yesterday and he was fine. I, on the other hand was like a zombie, but when it comes to your kids it really doesn't matter how you feel, as long as he was fine that's all that matters.

This will be a very special Christmas for me this year. I always thought that Joseph would be an only child and now he will have a sister. It still amazes me every time I think of it. I will always remember him waking up and running into my room to let me know that Santa was here. Now next year, he will be able to go and get his sister first and then let us know that Santa was here.

I remember as a child myself my brother always getting up first. He would peek at the tree first to see if the presents where there and then come and get me. Then he would take my hand and we would go into our parents room and wake them up. Then the fun would begin. I hope that my son and daughter have that same bond.

I am glad Joseph is doing better (and hopefully so is Mom since she got some sleep???).

Love the picture, btw, did Santa leave that??? If so, man I guess I haven't been good this year (hehe).
