Got a little catching up to do...Our Christmas was a little different this year. Jackson started not feeling well Friday morning 12/23, which was not a good thing. He refused to go to the doctor so i figured he was running fever due to exhaustion...which is exactly what happens to me. By Friday afternoon, he was complaining of "body aches," so i panicked and rushed him on to the doctor. When he got there his fever was 101.5 and he was crying because his body hurt. Good news was that his Flu test was - and bad news was that strep test was +. But strep had a quicker recovery than the flu.
Christmas Eve day was spent cleaning and tidying up the house for Santa's arrival. We had it spotless downstairs and then it was on to upstairs. I did not take a before pic because i was so embarassed. But we decided to totally re-arrange the room although we really didn't have the time to do so. So JJ and i worked pretty diligently and got it finished. And later on that afternoon, Jackson still wasn't feeling well so we decided it was best to stay home for Christmas Eve. The boys hugged Fitch, their Elf, as they were sad to see that he was flying back to the North Pole during the night.
None of us slept well as we were 4 deep in my queen size bed and Jackson still did not feel well!!! But, i just LOVE sleeping with both of my boys. I had to get up a few times in the middle of the night because Jackson was upset that he couldn't sleep and to also check on my sausage slow cooker breakfast that i decided to make as well.
It actually tasted pretty good!! Especially because we usually do not eat breakfast Christmas morning because we are on the go from the time we get up until we go to bed.
When we finally got up Christmas morning, Fitch left a little surprise for the boys.
Jackson was very that sad that he was gone this am but pretty happy that Fitch left him a very sweet "see you later" note! We had such a blast with Fitch...we cannot wait until he returns next year. Ok...enough for today. I will share Christmas Day with you tomorrow. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
