Christmas 2008

This was our first Christmas in Austin and Gabe had to work!! So, the kids and I loaded up and went to my grandparents house. We went to the Christmas Eve service with my grandma (she is an AMAZING handbell player), went to look at lights, and then spent the night. Since Gabe was working, we spent the ENTIRE day there. We got to open presents throughout the day. These are all the pictures I have, but this is first thing in the morning. We got to open gifts when my parents came, then again when my aunt and her family came over. The only other low point of the day (other than missing Gabe) was Teagan got a fever and puked right before we left to come home.

I know that you are dying to see Christmas pictures, but they are still on my camera. With the move and work, I am WAY behind to get them up for you.

Tomorrow, little Miss Abby starts her hardest round of chemo treatments, will you please pray for her? During this time her life is going to be the most vulnerable and the hardest to survive.

Abby is just a bit younger than Perryn and for the first time, I was able to 'try' to put myself in Michelle's shoes. I couldn't do it very well. I began to feel very overwhelmed with the possibility of what life would be like if Perryn was sick. I am choosing to pray for Abby, her family, her health, her life. That's all I can do right now. Please pray for her family as well. Her new treatments start tomorrow.

I will try my hardest to get pictures up by this weekend!! Here's one of Abby though!!
