Hello. Well we had a really nice holiday. We went to Alan's family's house for Hanukkah on the 19th and then we had my family over for Christmas Eve. We had a really great time. We also learned that my cousin Edward and his wife Kelly are expecting their first child together and we couldn't be happier for them and the new grandparents to be!! Christmas Day we went to my cousin Colleen's house. We have spent every Christmas with them since I am born. It's a tradition now. The day after Christmas we finally got some snow. It looked so pretty. The only part that stunk after Christmas was Alan wasn't feeling well. Guess he got what I haven't been able to get rid of for over a month now. I ended up back at the doctor's he said I had acute bronchitis that was aggravating my asthma. I had to go for a chest x-ray and breathing tests along with a nebulizer treatment. I was put back on prednisone at a higher dose for another 10 days and an antibiotic so hopefully this will kill anything in my system and help me breathe better.
Today we had Colleen, Katie and Sean over for Brittany's 6th Birthday. We had lunch and a tea party and a princess birthday cake. The girls had so much fun. I will post pictures.
Tomorrow night we are going over my parents house to celebrate Ashley's birthday and Brittany's birthday along with New Years!! Should be fun. It's the first time we have gone out on New Year's Eve in a long time.
Well...I finally got myself to the doctor after being sick for almost a month. I had to be put on prednisone since I had bronchial asthma. The first dose I took started to make me feel better. Today is the third day and my head is cleared up and I am back to myself. Yey!!
Yesterday my dad stopped by and went with me to help look for our Christmas tree. I know it's a little late to start decorating but it was actually the first time I started to really get into the Christmas spirit since I hadn't been feeling well. We got a nice 6 1/2 foot tree. Tonight I will decorate with the kids. Also I got a surprise in the mail today. David got on the Woodland Middle School Scholastic Roll for the first quarter. He got a certificate mail. We are very proud of him.
Well that's about it. Now I am off to go figure out what were having for dinner tonight??? Hmmm.
Sorry I haven't posted the past couple of weeks. Things have been a little crazy around here and I just haven't had the time to write. I am still trying to beat this cold. I can't take it anymore. It makes my asthma worse...especially with the weather this time of year and my head is so stuffed up...yuck :o(
This past weekend we went to Milleridge Inn to celebrate Michelle's Birthday. I will try to get a few pictures up. It was really nice. The Christmas carolers were there going from room to room in the resturant. It was nice when they stopped to sing Happy Birthday to Michelle. We also got the chance to go by the EAB Christmas tree. It is actually bigger than the 70 Feet Tall Rockerfeller Chirstmas tree this year standing at 90 feet tall!!
Next Saturday night we plan on going to the 5th annual Jones Beach holiday light show. It's a light show that you drive through and at the end you get out of your car and visit with Santa, have some hot coco, etc. This will be the first time I am going to see it but from what I am told it is really nice.
