The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:4-9

Our family is a circle of strength and love, with every birth and every union, the circle will grow, every joy shared adds more love, every crisis faced together, makes the circle stronger

Had a Wonderful Christmas even though Sam was SOOOOO sick.....

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas holiday, celebrating the birth of our wonderul savior, with family, friends, and good food. We did...... just a little later than most. Sam started getting sick last monday and by Christmas Eve he was the sickest Ive ever seen him, I really do believe we avoided the hospital only because it was Christmas Eve! He was dehydrated, high fever, tonsils swollen so big they were touching with white pus all over them, which made him not be able to breathe, wouldnt eat or drink and was dry heaving. IT WAS BAD, we made several trips to the Dr, blood work and a sick 4 year old dont mix. His White blood count was 18 and should be 5, they came to a conclusion he has mono. Anyways we cancelled Christmas at our house on Christmas day with my side of the family and had that get together yesterday. I thank God my sweet baby is finally feeling some better!!! We had a great time with family yesterday, yummy food, and more presents for Sam to open! He got lots of great new toys, so many he doesnt even know what to play with.
I hope Santa was good to everyone, he sure was to Sam. I am looking forward to this next week, just spending time with my hubby and Sam, now that hopefully we will all stay well and just enjoy spending some time together while Chad is off work!
Thank you to all my friends who have constantly been praying for and checking in on Sam, thanks so much, I was really worried about him!
Next time you read my blog I hope to have it redecorated, time to take down all the Christmas decorations!
