Christmas 2011

This year, I was looking so forward to Christmas. Our boys are just the right age and I was so excited!  A few days before Christmas, Lily got sick one night, but she was in the middle of a coughing fit, so we chalked it up to that.  Christmas Eve came.  We got ready, went to Chick-fil-a and let the kids play for a while.  Everyone was having such a good time.  Then, we went for our annual Christmas Eve Movie.  We decided to go see "Arthur Christmas."  As soon as we got seated, Lily actually went to sleep.  Just about that time, Landon leans over to me and tells me that his tummy feels really bad.  Chalking it up to too much sugar, we watched the movie.  As soon as we were walking out, Landon said he felt like he needed to throw up.  We headed to the bathroom, but he said he was fine.  We headed to the mall because I had to get a last minute gift.  We had also planned to start a new tradition at Build-a-Bear.  As soon as we got out of the vehicle, Landon let it rip.  Luckily, we were in the parking deck..gotta love being a Mom!  He said he felt better, so we went ahead and did our bears.  We made it home and after about five hours, he was asking what he was going to have for supper.  It was the craziest thing.  Unfortunately, Chris & I were not so lucky.  We both got sick right around bedtime.  Christmas morning, we were a pitiful sight.  Poor Nixon..he was the only one who didn't get sick and he was just running circles around us.  Of course, he does most days!  After opening the presents Christmas morning, we all took about a two and a half hour nap.  Well, except Nixon..who played right on through everyone sleeping.  After waking up, we all felt much better.  Chris & I still were exhausted and achy all over, but we decided we couldn't stay away from family on Christmas, so we headed back home.  It was definitely a Christmas that I'll never forget and I hope no one is sick on Christmas for quite a while!  It was no fun at all!!

 Landon was missing from our Christmas Eve picture because he was sick :(
Poor little buddy..opening presents wore him out!
