The present...

I thought that this year would be easier, but sometimes
it didn't really seem that way.  Christmas marked two years since I had the itch, the itch that ultimately saved my life, but that also dragged me through the trenches.  Two years ago seems like a long time a ago, but it also seems like just yesterday. Unfortunately along with all the fun and excitement of Christmas, I have this memory.  I experience some of the same feelings of panic as I did two years ago.  I have to work hard to refocus and count my many blessings, to be in the moment.  

And so, here are some of our moments.

 We made a bunch of those wooden ornaments this year.  I'll have to post that on another day.

 E was excited to give his dog cousin a new outfit for Christmas.

Take a look at the little man's face when he open Blitzen's Reindeer Antlers as he requested.

 There has been way too much of this happening over the past few days.  It's coming to an end VERY soon.  This guy craves routine (as do I), so getting back onto some kind of schedule will be good for all of us.
 We made "place cards" for the Christmas table.  The idea came from Family Fun Magazine.

 Note the antler in E's hand.
