I am thrilled to have survived the sick month of December and am happy to announce we all are well for Christmas! Poor Brandon has survived some serious hormonal/sick melt downs this past month. I am all the more grateful to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas! Eli said "Jesus!" two times yesterday. So sweet! The other night we were amazed because we were out and about and decided at the last second to run him over to the mall to see Santa and ride the train. Last year he was scared to death of Santa, so we figured it would be the same this year but wanted to give him the chance. We were sure to point out while waiting in line that Santa was giving the kids candy canes. When he saw this he started jumping up and down so excited to get his turn. He told us he was going to ask Santa for a "Ball!" He went right up and sat on his lap, took a picture, and listened contently while Santa talked to him for a while. He even kissed Santa as we left! What a shock! It was really fun. If you ask him what Santa is going to bring him he says "BALL!!" Here's some quick pictures of Eli and Brandon overlooking the runways at the airport (with some Cessnas in the background). When we go and eat lunch with Brandon Eli loves getting to watch the planes while we eat! Looking forward to my parents arrival today ahead of the big storm we're supposed to have! Merry Christmas to all!
