These last few weeks leading up to Christmas have been SO busy! We are on the go, go, go. Everyone gets out of school on Friday for Christmas break, and I’m taking a week off of work and we cannot wait!
I feel so behind on so many things on this blog so I think I just need to do a big ole catch up to get us up to date. Then I can MAYBE stay caught up?
The last two rounds were really tough on her. The 3rd one, the doctor accidentally got a blood vessel in her cheek when he was giving her the numbing shot. She swelled and hurt pretty bad after that visit.
Ava has homework every night now and she gets very frustrated when I make her correct letters or numbers are backwards. We have learned that she and her daddy mesh much better when it comes to sounding out words and reading. I can handle the numbers and spelling.
Ava has had a Christmas tree in her room for several years. This year when we got it out, Reed got really upset he didn’t have one. Ava told him that he could have hers in his room until we could get him one. Some days she really makes mature choices!
We told the kids the news about the baby after they were out of school for their Thanksgiving break. Ava couldn’t want to go back and tell her friends. She asked for a copy of my ultrasound pics to show them. Her teacher texted me this photo of her sharing her news!
Last week we also did one of our favorite holiday traditions – we went and rode the Holiday Express at the local park. We love going and riding the train to look at all the lights they have up. The kids love it especially, even though Ava’s face says otherwise!
So. This is a LONG post but I feel like it catches us up on the most important things that have happened! Now – to stay caught up!
