On the third day of December my true love gave to me...


...a TV for my bedroom. The televisheeeon in our bedroom kicked the bucket many long moons ago, so we have been living daily life with one tv in the house for a very long time. 3 computers, but only 1 tv...egads. But really, I didn't realize how much I had missed watching the shows I had tivoed while I was folding clothes until I had the TV back...and it was soooooo nice. With a capital NICE.
So, this could possibly be the post of all randomness...first bit of random: Jay grew a goatee. And then he shaved it off. It was too itchy and hairy, but it was a nice mix-em-up for a couple of weeks. So, when he had the goatee, he took Em to her first Gator football game...and she luuuuuuuuuuuved it. Or in Emma words, "It was awethum." Which just so happens to be Emma talk for "awesome". My girl gave me a huge hug after the game and proclaimed "I saw Tim Tebow! And he was awethum!!"
Thanksgiving...was awethum! Jay's parents made the leeong trek down here and Wandy and Bwudder Jimmy came and ate the ooey goodness that Thanksgiving dinner brings. And then we all sat around on the driveway for hours and laughed about old times and solved the future's problems. It was indeed a wonderful day. Emma...has earned her 2nd foot for her morning mile necklace, which means that she has tallied a full 10 miles of running/walking/galloping so far this school year. She is purdy darn proud of her feet on her necklace and will show anyone around her great accomplishments...But what she shows everyone...EVERYone right now...are her ears. Specifically, her earRINGS. Yep, the kid took the plunge and got her ears pierced last Saturday. And would you believe that I have not taken any pictures of them yet? No stones, please. Abby was the one who talked her into the big step during our big girls shopping day, and even though she knew it would hurt, she said she was good and ready to have holes.

The kid talked incessantly as they were doing the prep work. She talked and they laughed and she talked more and they laughed more. And then they poke the holes in her ears...and she cried. And cried. And CRIED. So much that I am quite sure that anyone in a 4 store radius will not be getting anything pierced in a very long time. But after about 10 minutes, the kid turned a corner and was so happy that she took the plunge.
Abby...well, she has 5 feet for her morning mile necklace, meaning that she has run 25 miles. Enough to be able to participate in a city marathon thingamajig in February. She's doing outstanding in school and loving her friends these days.

Absters got an early birthday present last weekend since she is usually bombarded with ALL of her Christmas and Birthday presents at Christmastime. She received a shiny new pink bike...put together by her littlest bro. Her old bike has been growing smaller and smaller over the months, and it has been way past time for some new bigger wheels for the chica. She loved it...I think. Of course, she has to be at the age where excited emotions are definitely not shown as brightly...a precursor to teenagedom.
Nathan...is doing relatively well right now. His motility drug trial is going great, as his lactic acid level has not risen any yet and he seems to be eating a bit more. Score more for some fat on those skinny bones. He has also had 2 more meds added to his regiment, meaning that the poor kiddo is getting 14 doses of meds a day now. He had some labs come back abnormal from our appt in Houston, and he needs some repeated on Monday. All I'm saying is that I sincerely hope that one of the labs that came back extremely elevated was just a lab error, as it was really, really elevated.
Other than all the routine medical stuff that doesn't seem to let up, the little dude is doing pretty well. He has added a couple more words and many more levels of tantrum to his agenda, which has shown us that he is edging ever so closely to the age of 2. Seriously? He's a sweetie...and a stinker...and a booty head...and adorable...all in the same 5 minutes. Yep. Almost 2.

OMGoodness, Daniel has those same green gorilla sleeper jammies! It looks just like him from the back! LOL!

Loving the pics of the kids and all their accomplishments...good for them! Hope the labs come back better when retested.

Matthew can not quit laughing at the picture of Emma with her lip. He keeps wanting to see it, then laughs hysterically. Love You!! Beth, Brian and Matthew

We are Piggie fans(AR) but I really wanted Florida to win in SEC championship game. I also like Tebow. Oh well, as long as UT loses. Emma is too cute!
