Well. We had a really fun Christmas party on Sunday night-just our family!! We tried to have a gingerbread house competition, which didn't work out....then we tried to decorate the Christmas tree, which took 3 trips to Rite-Aid because of some newly purchased lights that didn't work....
But sometimes, things just don't go as planned. Sometimes it feels like everything is going wrong and you're exhausted and you just want something to go "right". But. You just keep going.
So. We ate our "Christmas pasta"
We drank apple cider. We ate Ginger Cookies and Peppermint Bark:
And then we delivered some goodies to a couple of neighbors....with a little chorus of "We Wish You a Merry Christmas."
All in all, it was still fun, even if it didn't go as planned.
Monday was just supposed to be a sort of lazy, kind of catching-up day....
My sweet boy sort of hobbled in, crying, laying on the floor in front of our door.
We have a very fun climbing tree, which he fell out of from a pretty high height.
Nothing was obviously broken....but after four hours of laying on the couch (which is extremely out of character for this young man), we made a call to the pediatrician. They thought the ER would be best, especially to rule out concussion.
They were so kind and really great with Ezra at the Ojai Hospital ER. Because he had a temperature with no other explainable cause, we went ahead and did a CT scan, which came out clear.
All in all, he is okay and we are so thankful. We will lay low and keep an eye on him over the next few days. Just like we always do. ;-)
