Grandma Cochran gave us quite a scare on Christmas Eve. We are thankful for the Douglas County EMT crew that came to visit with us that afternoon. Anette had dangerously low blood sugar on the 24th and spent most of Christmas Day in the hospital recovering from such. After she visited Wellstar Douglas for about 24 hours she came home and we got to have Christmas at her house. Huge thanks for Taco Mac being open to provide us with a yummy dinner! We had a fun time opening gifts and laughing. After dinner and gifts we got baths and came home.

I'm not sure that this round of Santa is what you would call successful.... but it sure was funny. We had GREAT plans to go to the mall and see Santa today. We also planned on going to ride The Pink Pig! We were all pretty excited and ready for the adventure. This is who our day went.... Several exciting things happened... We got the mall and quickly realized we should have come about 3 hours earlier than we did. We stood in line for a minute or two.... more like 60, but it wasn't terrible. And both kids were GREAT standing in line. Just as we were getting close to Santa (think 10 minutes left to wait) I smelled something. It wasn't starbucks or cookies being baked. And you know what's coming next.... Elizabeth apparently decided today was a GOOD day to poop. All over her back, clothes, car seat. Extra clothes.... in the car. Santa... 10 feet away. MADNESS! Changed the diaper and the pants. Elizabeth saw Santa in her diaper, socks, shirt, and FABULOUS hairbow. Hayes screamed the entire time. Awesome. It was certainly fun.
Fail. We went to Lenox to see Santa and ride the Pig. We left late, hit traffic, drove in the rain in the dark, got lost, ate dinner, and missed them both. We had fun and got to take pictures in Santa's chair though!
Daddy and Hayes went to see the ALX Cougars run at their state cross country meet. Elizabeth and Mommy went with Hope to watch the ALX Cheerleaders compete in their region competition. We seriously both had a BLAST!
