Well, we survived the holidays. Had lots of plans to travel to Missouri to see my family, but they were cut short with the weather, we got snowed in at Corby's parents which was actually nice because we got to relax and enjoy Christmas. The kids were spoiled rotten, Madi's big gift was a Nintendo DSI and pink John Deere cowboy boots, she also got books, clothes and a whoopie cushion. Clayton got a drum set with symbols and that's all he wanted to do was crash symbols during the gift opening :) He also got a ton of "wheelies" or cars to play with, clothes, books and a pair of boxing gloves which he used to tag his Papa Rusty in the head while he was sitting nicely in the recliner. We have so much to be thankful for this year. Our best gift was welcoming Mimi home right around Christmas. It has been a year since her treatment began and after many complications, everything is looking good and she should be able to begin a maintenance program. She looks and feels good and is thrilled to put all of this behind her and go on with life.
Clayton's caregiver since he was 3 months old, Diane, is starting student teaching this year so we have enrolled him in daycare. So far so good, he will go on Mon, Tues and Fridays and the first two days went well, he pee pees in the potty and plays well with the other kids. I will keep my fingers crossed that this will be an easy transition. He was so pumped up to go the first day, he had his hair spiked and his backpack on, he was however, disappointed that he was not getting on the "bool-bus."
