We had a family Christmas party this past Saturday for my side of the family. We picked up Marley and headed over to my Grandma's new assisted living home for a visit first.
We attended the family gathering at my Uncle Dave's house and we had such a great time. Brady had decided earlier that day that he was going to tape a piece of paper to his face and be Santa. The entire day.
And he was.
So, Jax had the elf hat on and Brady was Santa - they crack me up.
Both of the boys had started a cough on Tuesday night, so I was wondering how well they'd feel by Saturday for the long day/night of driving up to Green Bay and attending all the festivities. Brady's cough went croupy on us, but some steroids helped. Jax of course just needs round-the-clock neb treatments, which is a bummer to travel with a neb-machine, but it is what it is. They did pretty good, but I've noticed Brady has ramped back up a little bit with a cough and not feeling the best again since Sunday night (hmm).
So far, the boys are doing ok with being home while I work. Thankfully they only have to deal with that for one more day and then Jay and I plan to be off the rest of the week.
For the first year ever, we have Christmas Eve to ourselves at home, so we're going to try and have it be relaxed, yet festive! Planning is in the works... maybe we'll actually get to CHURCH this year!
