Texas Christmas (Not What I Imagined)

So, Connor is finally at the age where he understands Christmas and the joy and wonder are transparent in this little human being.  We had a great time in Arkansas, and we had more Christmas plans when we returned to Texas.  Unfortunately Connor got sick.  Like….really sick.  My sweet hubby stayed home with him on Thursday and Friday so I could get back to work.  Terence took him to the Doctor on Friday for an x-ray and breathing treatment.    He tested negative for the flu and strep.  I am not sure what he has, just that he’s congested and has a high fever.

Saturday morning I woke up feeling like poo.  The sickness hits our household hard at least once a year…..geesh.  I called Connor’s school and his teacher told me almost every kid was absent.  So something has got to be going around right?  All of that said our Christmas plans were not as we’d imagined, but we were together as a family and that’s the most important thing.  Connor got a new bike and some toys, Terence got me a new digital tablet I’d been wanting, and my sweet in-laws brought us some yummy food since we couldn’t be with them.

So, it may have not been the Christmas I’d imagined….but it was a blessing to be together & celebrate Jesus birth.

An Arkansas Christmas 2013

Last week Connor and I headed to Arkansas for an early Christmas with my Mom, Dad, sister, Nannie, and many family & friends.  Connor did great on the drive, he’s such a good little guy 🙂

We are so blessed to have the most beautiful place on Earth (in my opinion) to spend Christmas at.  Nannie and Papa’s farm will always hold a special place in our hearts.  So many memories over my lifetime were spent there and I hope Connor has the same wonderful memories.

It’s hard living away from your family and friends, but that just makes the times you do get together extra special.  Bonnie and I went out to dinner one night with our good friends from highschool.  Mom, Bonnie, and I spent a few girls days together shopping.  Then we headed to the farm for Christmas celebrations & Jarrett’s 4th birthday.

So, here are some pictures from the trip…there are lots…but I’d rather have too many than too little!

We’ve had a bout of sickness in our house.  Yesterday we were stuck in the house all day and Connor didn’t even want to open his presents poor little guy.  He’s been running a high fever and feeling awful.  I’ll recap on all that later….Hope you all had the best Christmas!!!  xoxo Becky
