Merry Christmas everyone! Last night Julian went to the ER. He has an upper respiratory infection. =( We didn't get home until after 1am. My poor baby is miserable on his first Christmas. After we got home we still had to wrap presents and we didn't get to bed until 4am! Thank God my husband helped me wrap this year. =) Our older 3 children are amazing too though! I woke up at 10 this morning and went to get the kids for gift opening. They were in their rooms reading books quietly!! Most kids would NOT wait that long and they wouldn't let us sleep like that. Their so good and we were so grateful for their patience. =) They were all so happy about everything! Now their playing with their stuff while I relax for a bit. How's your Christmas so far?

Glad that Julian is back home with you and that your 3 other children are so nicely behaved. Your husband and you are to be congratulated for having them raised so good.

@LovingMyBabies I just hope that more parents were raising their children as good as you are. We need more young couples like you doing the right thing.

That is so nice of them to wait and be patience. Such a hard lesson for some adults to learn. I am watching a three part documentary I taped last night. It is an up dated history of jesus, his time, teachings, etc. Although I am not a religious person I am curious.

You raised them to be good so they are. I hope the baby will be ok. Did he come home with you. Is your Aunt still there with you.

it's been quiet, we had family over last night, so today it's just hubby, me and our 2 sons and ham dinner. We were up very late as we heard a friend of the family was in a bad car accident late last night. We are still waiting to hear more news.

@LovingMyBabies Lots of stitches in his head, and his brother in law had the worse injuries, broken pelvic bone.

What a bunch of great kids you have. Nice of your hubby to help with the wrapping. My husband offered after seeing how frustrated I was, but I decided that it would be easier to just do it by myself. How is the baby doing today? I hope a bit better.

Its too bad that Julian is so sick, that is exhausting on the rest of the family too. Your children sound like little angels to let you all rest like that.

Christmas is lovely, we went to church at my brother's church. Later we took a meal to my dad's house and played some games. All adults for us this year.
