This was a LOOOONG day for Sav, Mom, and Dad---we spent all day at Cook Children’s Hospital for her 10th round of kidney testing. It was, in a word….AWFUL.
(Sav’s best “mean” face~ after her IV and catheter)
By now, we are passed the point of traumatizing…bless her heart and those sweet, swollen, bloodshot eyes. (I lost it several times)
We tried to keep her distracted with games on the iphone…
Poor baby girl has had enough…Thank GOD for Daddy taking a day off work to come with us. These days are SO emotionally and physically draining for all of us.
The only thing that made Sav light up, was the thought of opening presents that night with family!
The grandkids: Ben, Carter, Sav, Sawyer, Andrew, Ethan
The whole fam!
Joe tackling the kids---trying to expend some of their ridiculous amount of “Christmas energy”!
I set up their presents and made them run for it on the count of 3! Hilarious. SOOOOO much excitement!
Ripping in! This year was truly magical…
Benny and some of his loot.
Andrew and Ethan with their new trains and track.
Sweet Savi and her Snow White from Aunt Ashley
Of course she had to put on the new Snow White nightgown as well.
God love this precious girl child and all that she endured this day. You would have never known.
The party continued the next evening (12/23) for my Daddy’s birthday!
How precious is this baby boy??!?! Ashley and baby Sawyer
Bro and Dad
Dad and his favorite child.
Sweet, beautiful Granna
Happy Birthday, Papa! We love you SOOOOO much!
