christmas card?

won't be sending out any christmas cards this year, again.  darn.  

getting into the christmas spirit

so the last couple of years i've really had a hard time getting into the holidays.  i don't really know why, i have a few hunches, but i really try for my son.  this year i'm putting in more effort to go do christmas related things, and it's paying off.  Jorel really seems to love all of the things about christmas.  i even fully participated in our company ugly sweater contest and took it hands down :) 
poor jorel was really sick on tuesday and wednesday, so i took him into the doctor tuesday night to find out it was an ear infection - in both ears.  we watched a lot of movies over the course of the sickness - including midnight showings of cars and finding nemo. 
 the amoxicillin is really helping because he slept for 12 hours last night!  the sleepless nights were really catching up to us so i also slept for 11 hours...  he was feeling so much better yesterday that we got outside to play because we were definitely getting a little stir crazy - even though he did go to day care the last two day.  he also decided that he would actually pedal his tricicle.  

i decided to take him to the polar express reading at Barnes and Noble and took along our friends (thanks for driving, so i guess you took us along!).  and thanks to Jenn for inviting us!  we also sat on santa's lap and all jorel wants for christmas are "little cars."  thats the only thing he's told me too!  so i guess we can satisfy him with cheap gifts, so i'm grateful :)  
jorel's face is shiny because of the aquaphor on his too-many-blows nose
