Christmas Day

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! We had a great Christmas Eve with Becca and Josh. Check out her blog to see the cutest video of Ethan! Then on Christmas we spent the day with Dave's family in Keizer. The best part was the snow! It was my first Christmas that I can remember with snow! Plus, today we have more snow out where we live. Ethan's loved his first snow! He ate a snowball!

On Christmas Break!

I am so excited! I am on Christmas Break from school and to start the holiday off, we are all sick! It seems as if my immune system isn't what it use to be. I knew I would be getting sick because I have been out of the classroom for a year, but I thought I would at least last more than a week! So pray for us... Ethan has it and now Dave isn't feeling good. It's not good for him to be sick! He keeps on sneezing and that lung of his could go again!

In spite of the illness... yesterday was the Kindergarten's program. It went so well! My boss forgot that she asked Dave to be in the play when she wanted him to take pictures. So guess who was the photographer? Yep, me! Dave set up the camera for me and I got to take the pictures and I did a pretty good job! It is scary to have the pressure... but I came through! The program was awesome and I am glad not to have Dave wearing his head piece around the house.

So here is a great video of our Christmas tree that Becca so beautifully decorated.

Prepare the way for Christ's Birth

So, Dave has been casted as "Joesph" in school's Kindergarten Program. Mind you, he has no lines but it is a pretty important roll. He sits in the manger looking at "Jesus" with loving eyes. Dave has been practicing often and loves to wear his costume around the house while saying, "It's not easy raising the Son of God." I am just glad that when we went to get Chinese the other night, he took off his tunic and head piece.

Laughing About the Little Things

Besides the fact that Dave is laid up and unable to even hold his son... we are doing well. I have to smile about the small but funny things or the stress of this last week will break me! Let me tell you some of the funny things that has happened since Dave's surgery:
  • Dave only remembers Eric and Joanne visiting in the hospital because Eric is growing a goatee
  • Dave told me that I needed to go and get more meds cause he only had one more left. Then I looked in the container and there were several. He said that he must of dreamt it. What a nightmare!
  • We were watching a television show and something was so funny that I slapped Dave while laughing... right on Dave's side... whoops! I felt terrible but now it's funny
  • I am forced to watch Lord of the Rings Extended Version... yes... all of them! Wait, I am not sure if that is very humorous.
  • Ethan can now out crawl Dave. Now that's funny.

We Miss Dave!

Dave had his surgery and is in the hospital. Can you believe that his lung collapsed again the night before surgery?! We couldn't believe it ourselves. My poor husband had two garden hoses (chest tubes) coming out of him, a drainage tube, and two large areas stapled where they went into his lung to staple the top and bottom of it. He will for sure have several war wounds after this is all over. It is hard to have Dave in the hospital while we are at home. Becca and Josh took us yesterday to see Dave and Josh took me today while Becca watched Ethan. Sometimes I am able to call him and talk while Ethan is in bed. It brings us to our dating days when we would talk on the phone late at night just to hear each other's voice... I will be glad to have my prince safe, home, and better again.
