If you are sick, you stay away from others. At least that is the rule my grandmother passed along to my mother and now to me and Wes (and I’m pretty sure it is what most doctors say as well). While it’s not the fun option, and you may not even be “very sick” BUT canceling your plans when you are sick is the polite thing to do.
Well, today I reluctantly had to take our own advice and we had to cancel on our church supper club group. I’d been looking forward to it for a while now, but Wes reminded me (as I was trying to justify why we should still have it) that missing something fun is nothing compared to the chance that we might cause others to feel bad or get sick.
As you can guess, all three of us are officially down for the count with a cold/virus. Rand got it first, then me, and this morning Wes woke up with it. In order to cheer myself up, I decided to look back through the photos we took over Christmas. I never got around to posting them so here goes…
On Christmas Eve we were so busy, I forgot to take pictures. We went to early Church and Rand was on his best behavior for the Children’s Nativity. Maybe some day he’ll be a shepherd or wise man himself. After, we gathered at our house for family dinner. James did snap a photo of the yummy apple cider margaritas we had with dinner. Recipe here.
On Christmas morning I didn’t take any pictures here at home, instead we shot a flip video of Rand, but I don’t have it uploaded yet, sorry. After, we headed over for breakfast at Grandmommy’s house and Rand was pumped about his new wagon, race cars and picaboo bear.
After Grandmommy’s, we headed over to Ema & Pop’s. We are so blessed to have Grandmommy and Ema less than 5 min away from each other!
Rand gave out lots of hugs and kisses and everyone wanted to play with him/hold him. He was definitely the best Christmas present for all of us this year.
The next day, we headed up to Raleigh for Christmas part II with the Capassos. Can you guess what MJ’s favorite Christmas present was? He sure takes after his mom and is a cheerful cleaner-upper. Now I’m thinking we should have just gotten him the real thing!
Don’t you keep your dirt devil in a circus tent too?
I seemed to have left out a lot of family members in the photos (most all of my photos seem to be of Rand…) and there are tons more photos from Christmas, so if you aren’t sick of us by now, you can see the entire album here.
