Merry Merry, part 1

Happy Holidays!  The craziest time of year, but packed full of fun!

[Thanksgiving 2016}

Lily participated in a dance/cheerleading class after school once a week.  It was her idea, and we signed her up after lots of begging.  She looked forward to each Wednesday and had a blast in her performance.  

 William in his second appearance in his preschool Christmas program.  Cutest little shepherd!!  He did great...he sang along and did all the actions!

A quick visit to Santa - however, William said "Mom, that wasn't the real Santa!  No way!"  So we had a good conversation about how Santa sometimes needs to ask a cousin to help out during busy season.  

Our favorite tradition!  Opening one Christmas book each night in our new Christmas PJ's.

First ER visit

After a fun morning playing with our buddy James at the train park, William took a spill jumping off flower boxes.  I tried two different urgent cares who wouldn't see him for various reasons before just driving to the Emergency Room.  A little glue and two hours later, he was all patched up and ready to go back to the life of crazy, ornery four year old boy.  

William told his sister all about his day, going on and on about how brave he was and how the nurse rewarded him with a new hot wheel car because he was so good.  However, he failed to mention the part when he gagged on his tears and threw up all over me.  Guess that slipped his mind!  :)  

A month later, it's healed nicely and he is very proud of his scar!
