Christmas is almost here! Is everyone ready? I'm not, but what else is new? This is how I always spend my Christmas Eve...grocery shopping, cleaning up my house and wrapping presents. It wouldn't be Christmas around here if I wasn't up until all hours of the night! :-)
Five Question Friday is on hiatus this week, so no enlightening facts about me today. I'm sure you all are so bummed. So instead I'll just give you a quick update on Bryce - he woke up yesterday covered in hives again. We gave him some Benadryl and they went away. I took the Benadryl to school so they could give it to him if needed, and they didn't have to use it. Last night, however, was a different story. He woke up crying so I got him out of bed and sat with him for a while. I noticed the hives coming back as we were sitting there, so I gave him some more Benadryl. I really hate giving him that stuff! I wish those things would just go away for good!
I hope everyone has a great day today, getting ready for their big Christmas celebrations tomorrow. My parents and brother will be here this afternoon, and Brian's mom, step-dad and aunt will be joining us tomorrow. I can't wait for Christmas morning to be here, so I can watch the excitement on the kids' faces when they open their gifts. So fun!
I'll leave you with a picture of my tree. This picture was actually from last year, but it looks exactly the same this year...only with toy shelves behind it.
I really love our tree! Yes, it is fake, but being that I can't stand the smell of pine, a real tree just isn't feasible in our house. And then there is the constant clean up of pine needles, and the whole trying to keep the kids, dogs and cats out of the water too. I don't think real trees do all that well in Florida anyway.
