If you couldn't tell from the lack of posts the past several weeks, I've been a little dazed. Christmas and New Years were quite literally a blur! It all started with Max's stomach flu/fever/sinus infection combo that lasted the week of Christmas. The poor kid could barely break a smile standing (or in his case laying) in front of a pile of presents. After a quick visit to his old doctor in Lombard and a day on antibiotics, he was back to normal. Yet under the circumstances, we cancelled the rest of our trip south and headed back north home. So then, we were waiting for the next victim. Violet and me came down almost simultaneously with a head cold. Luckily it stayed just that with her. Unluckily for me, it didn't. And being pregnant, there isn't much you can do OTC to treat congestion. I paid a visit to my doctor and was also diagnosed with a sinus infection. Several days - even though it feels like months - later we are all on the mend and getting back to normal. Through the holidaze, we did manage to have a little fun with family and exchanged some great Christmas gifts.

Christmas Eve

Spreading reindeer food (given by his teachers).

Our cookies and milk for Santa Claus. Max had a little taste first.

Saying goodbye to our Elf for the season.

Kids were asleep and the tree is stacked.

Christmas Morning
Poor kid could have cared less about Santa.

We forced some smiles out of him. 

Christmas Day at Nani and Grandpa's House  

Just one photo? OK, who's next?

Nope, that didn't work either.

Santa was not very popular with the kids this year.

Violet doing her gymnastics routine.

Violet's "Doc Brown" hairstyle at the end of the day.

Thank goodness that's a pencil and not a knife!

Long day for the kids.

Long day for everyone!

New Years Eve 
JJ Nichols and his parents came to visit us NYE for the night. We put the kids to bed at 9pm and tried our best to all stay up to midnight. We barely made it and hit the pillows shortly after.
