Lights at the Zoo

The week of Christmas was crazy. We have done so much and seen so many people, I haven't had time to blog and share with you Emily's first Christmas. I'll get to that later. Here are a few pics from the lights at the Zoo. Scott, Auntie Gina, and I took Emily to see the lights. She had a ball. She rode the merry go round and the train. We all had a great time! Emily was more impressed with the lights around this particular tree. These are beautiful pictures. Thank you Auntie Gina!

Surgery, Smurgery

Today Emily had tubes put in her ears. She's had a few ear infections. One in particular that has taken weeks and the strongest antibiotic to heal. She has been in a lot of pain and has kept us up for several nights. So, tubes seemed the route to take. After much prayer and discussion I decided that it needed to be done. Lots of other kids have them, and everyone has turned out fine. Better than fine. Well, we had to be at Palmetto Surgery Center at 6:45 this morning. She was happy and waving to all the nurses. She loved the monitor with the light on her toe. She even loved the Sylvester and Tweety gown they had for her. She was having a ball. I was barley holding on. I know it is a simple procedure, but Scott nor I have had surgery before. How can my 8 (almost 9 month old) go through this. Well, she did like a champ. The procedure took all of 4 minutes. She took a long nap and has been wonderful ever since. Thank you God for watching over her. Thanks to everyone for their prayers. This too shall pass.

Tonight she blew her Uncle Jonathan a kiss. She is one smart cookie! Mommy and Daddy loves you Emi!!

Parade of Lights, Cold Weather and Snacks-- Let Christmas begin!!

Emily attended her first Christmas parade. We went to the Cayce Parade of lights. My mom lives right in the heart of all of the action. We have snacks at her house and go all out. Its our unofficial start to the Christmas season. Our husbands hate it, and we can't hardly wait! Emily is going to be one of us, I know it. Well, she wasn't too thrilled about her new big girl coat. She eventually got into it and danced with the bands. She racked up on candy too! She was more excited with the snacks afterwards at grandma's. Aunt Gina shared some of her cupcake. Emily's sugar rush started about the time Gina left to go home. Thanks Aunt Gina! Hope you had fun Emily!
