Yes, I realize that Christmas is over with, but since our lives were infected with viruses, I wasn't able to do any posting and wish all of you a Merry Christmas! When I say we were infected with viruses I am talking about Gavin, (who is still sick!), Me (I'm all better!), and our computer!!! Our computer was being attacked by viruses and it wasn't a pretty sight (very bad things were popping up on our computer and it made me feel even more sick!), but I was able to get it fixed this morning, so.....Merry Christmas! I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday!
Here are some pictures to get you caught up on our family!
The boys on Christmas morning:
Our dog, Hunter, opening his stocking:
Jacob opening his:
Nolan and Caleb checking out each other's stocking:
Besides a few goodies in their stockings, the boys only received one gift from us that they had to share. Here they are opening it:
A Wii!!! The boys were VERY excited about this!
Here is a wide-eyed picture of Gavin. He is wondering if you want to know what he got for Christmas?!
It is difficult to find things to buy Gavin as gifts. He isn't able to do a whole lot, so the toy isles at stores don't really apply to him. But, I was able to find a few good options!
Here is a toy that I got that looks like a T.V./Aquarium. It lights up and a picture scrolls across it. He really seems to like looking at it!
Here he is enjoying it again:
He also received a really fuzzy blanket! I love snuggling him in it!
I also found a few shirts that he can wear. I got them at cafepress.com and since I love putting Gavin in shirts that say something. (I like to do this because since he can't speak for himself, I like to use his clothes to give him a voice sometimes.) I thought that these shirts spoke very well for him!
And, here he is wearing one of them:
I figure that a couple of these would be great options for him to wear if he's ever in the hospital again or if he has a doctors appointment. I'd like to think that Gavin won't be having anymore hospitalizations, but who would I be kidding?! So, now he will have his wardrobe all set!
I pray that all of you had a wonderful holiday and that you took some time to remember the best gift that was ever given to us! I know that we don't know the actual day that Jesus was born, but we do know that He WAS born for us and that this is definitely something to celebrate! I know that I will never get a better gift than what God sent for us!
"For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger." And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!" Luke2:11-14
