Waiting on the Rain...

I thought this was too cute!!!

Christmas with the Stokes'

The green boots were the first thing Kohen opened and just had to put them on. He wore them the entire time he was opening presents at Moms. He still wants to wear them all the time. We had a great Christmas. Hope everyone did too!!

Christmas Morning

Needless to say, Kohen did NOT like the tractor Santa brought him. He was scared to death of it. Still is!! He liked everything else though.

After opening his gifts Christmas morning we went to have Christmas with the Halks. I didn't get any pictures because there were too many people there. We had a great meal and got lots of good stuff.

Christmas Eve Night

Kohen is eating the cookies we set out for Santa!!!

Christmas Eve with the Stephens

This is a basketball chair that Kohen's uncle Brett got him. It is so cute. It feels just like a real basketball!!

OT....NO MORE!!!

Today Jill (Kohen's OT) reevaluated him and he tested out. When she told me that I said, "What does that mean?" She said he no longer needs occupational therapy!!!! Not that we don't love Jill, it is just another thing we can put behind us!! YEA!!! She compared his scores today from the first time he was evaluated and he had tripled his scores. Now we just have to go for PT and Speech. What good news at christmas time.

Christmas Sunday

As long as I can remember, I have always loved the Sunday before Christmas. Everyone at church has on their Christmas outfits and is in the best mood. Lots of families are home and everyone is anticipating the coming holiday. This year was no different. It seems this year it has been brought to my attention more than ever that we are very blessed. I have overheard conversations at WalMart of people less fortunate than we are and it just broke my heart. We take so much for granted especially around the holidays. It has taught me to remember the reason why we celebrate this wonderful season. I am so thankful for my family and many friends. We don't say that enough. Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas.

Christy Hollingshead.....The Best

I just love Christy Hollingshead. She captures the moment in an unbelievable way. These are just a few but they are all great. Our Christmas cards turned out so good. The first picture is Kohen's "mean face!"

Doctor Again....

Last Sunday Kohen was extremely cranky. So bad that we had to leave church. He would not take a nap and nothing would please him. He was still cranky on Monday morning so I called the Childrens Clinic and got an appt. He wasn't running any fever but still had a runny nose from being sick before. We went on Monday afternoon.....double ear infection!! I had no idea!!!!! 19months old and the first ear infection. He is feeling much better now. We also saw Dr. Schrantz on Monday. He said Kohen's feet have significantly improved since last time and that we didn't have to come back to him unless there was a problem. He was so impressed with all the therapy Kohen has had. It has helped SOOOO much. Thanks Brooke, you're the best!!!
