Post Op Day 6 and Merry Christmas!

We enjoyed our day today as we celebrated Christmas, even though we were sad to be away from family.  Thanks to FaceTime, we were able to spend time together anyway!  

 

Matt and Caleb come over early this morning with the gifts that Santa brought to RMH. The kids were so excited about their gifts!  We only brought a few of the gifts from us here because of space concerns, but that just means Christmas will last that much longer!
Caleb's favorite gift from Santa was a Lego Mars set that shoots alien pods out through tubes.   He also got several other Lego sets, the complete set of Harry Potter movies, and the new Fantastic Beasts book.  

 
Abby's favorite gift from Santa was a bike for her American Girl dolls.  It was all she talked about and Santa did not disappoint!  She also got several Lego sets, a dancing ballerina Barbie, and a book that is all about American Girl dolls. 

We let her pick a few small things to keep here in her room to play with, and Matt took the rest to RMH.  It is amazing how quickly the room can be overtaken by stuff!!  

The rest of the day, we relaxed and played together as a family.  We watched A Christmas Story, painted stained glass ornaments, FaceTimed with family, went to breakfast and dinner together in the cafeteria, and went for a few walks.  While Abby took a nap, Matt, Caleb, and I played War.  We also got to meet 4 therapy dogs today!!

 

 

 

It was a peaceful day without therapies, tests, or doctors' visits.  I'm sure we will be back at it tomorrow, but it was nice to take a break. 

From our family to yours, Merry Christmas!
