More Christmas 2006

Just a few pictures of the package opening on Christmas Eve. Aren't grandchildren one of the most thoughtful gifts God has given us?

Christmas 2006

Our grandson Jacob is old enough to unwrap his own presents this year and Christmas is once again a joyous occasion. Since our own sons passed the age of wonderment and anticipation for Santa's visit, we have had nice holidays...peaceful....but lacking in that "je ne sais quoi." I am so glad we get to be re-introduced to the merriment of a child's excitement during this special season. We were also blessed to watch Jacob "perform" in the Christmas program at their church on Christmas Eve morning. Although wearing the wings was out of the question, he did sport a lovely halo and gown, which I'm sure he will regret when the pictures reappear during his teen years. Here are just a few of the many photos taken at the program.

Free at Last!

I received the best Christmas present today. I was finally released from the Orthodontist!!! Granted, I will still have to wear the dreaded retainer while sleeping, but my days will be retainer-free.

Tomorrow is my second appointment with the Orthopedic Surgeon regarding my shoulder and I'm a bit apprehensive about that. I've noticed some improvement in these past six weeks, but it is nowhere near 100%. We'll see what he has me do next. I need relief fast, 'cause my once toned and muscular arms (sort of) are becoming flabby and shapeless. Good thing it's winter and I can keep them covered up! I would post a picture, but am too embarrassed.
