There is so much to be said about this holiday season. A year ago I remember being completely exhausted and scared for my son. I remember feeling lost because we didn't know what was going on with him. I remember not being in the mood for the holidays.
This year feels completely opposite. Mack is getting better and day by day we are more hopeful in his healing. His numbers aren't the best, but they are steady.
This year we have begun to feel safe.
To start this holiday season, we headed to the lake to be with my family. It warmed my heart because we were surrounded with family for three days. We even had my great grandpa with us!
When we got back to the lake, my parents and brother were already busy in the kitchen. The smells filled the air. We jumped in to help as much as we could, but I was a little weak after the run...until the Champaign was popped!
We were attempting a family photo...again...
Avery has started to be interested in taking pictures. Here are a few:
Avery told my parents how excited she was for Papa 2 to come. She said he was so cool!
We had two turkeys and a Turducken! We had plenty of food!
Mack wanted a paper airplane...I can't make one, but Papa 2 could!
At the end of the night we popped popcorn and watch Christmas Vacation.
The kids are completely exhausted, but my heart is filled with warmth and memories! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
