Hopefully everyone has received their Christmas cards by now. And I thought it was hard getting one kid to look at me and smile. It’s practically Mission Impossible to get more than one to cooperate at once. God Bless anyone with more than two kids in a photo, haha!
Santa came! Mommy actually almost died getting all that stuff downstairs and putting the rocking panda together. I also spent some time wandering the backyard in the rain with a flashlight breaking carrots into pieces and throwing them into the woods. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised my fever spiked at 103. Luckily I am feeling much better today.
It was rather sad not having Twister with us for Christmas. I had to pick up the wrapping paper right away. He always used to like climbing into the pile and laying down. We picked up his remains from the vet on the 26th. They gave us a very nice ceramic with his paw print and name in it. It brought a bit of levity to the situation when they handed him to us in a gift bag. We will miss him very much. Of course this means Kevin is officially the only boy in the house… surrounded by 5 girls.
