I'm a little behind in my posts so I will attempt to play catch up over the next week as will have WAY more time on my hands than I would like. This year is the year Jon will get the boy's for their 1st Christmas away from me. Frankly my heart is breaking knowing they will spend the entire 2 week holiday away from us, but I can't be selfish and assume that their being away from their Dad on holiday's isn't just as painful for him. It's his turn for the memories and my turn to try and find a way to deal with it. So over the holiday break I should have plenty of time to do updates. Just plan on a late Christmas post, as we will be waiting to celebrate and open gifts until the boy's come home January 2nd.
For now I have got to say thank you. Thank you Mom and Dad Morris for coming out here! It's anything but a short trip that they made to drive from Florida to Lousiana. With all my health concerns and those for our littlest little one, Mom was able to come help take care of me while on bed rest for a whole 3 weeks. Dad drove her out here on his very few days off, and I appreciate that more than anyone will really know. I know how hard working he is and for him to just make the time to get out here, and not only drive her, but to help clean our home, and have quality time with the kids even though he was running on about 4 hours of sleep in who knows how many days. Mom was SUCH a trooper! I can't fathom how hard it must have been to be displaced and helping out someone else (esp who is so ocd as I am) with 3 small kids. I never had to worry about things being picked up or cleaned. It made it really easy to stick to my bedrest and for me that is extremly hard! The kids had such a blast with her here and the little bit of time they got to spend with Grandaddy too. They would have loved for more time with him as well but they understand. We all wish we lived closer so we could do more family things, and help you guys out, maybe some day! Once again, THANK YOU Mom and Dad. We love you so much!
While Mom was here we were able to do some really fun little holiday crafts, family pictures and Thanksgiving dinner. We had a lot of fun. I love my awesome family and we have so much fun together!
