Early Christmas Gifts!!

Our friend, Lauren, bought the kids presents on a recent vacation. Between all of our busy schedules, we just haven't been able to get together for Lauren to give them to the kids. But we promise to make it more of a priority after the first of the year when we fall into our new routine. The gifts were given to me this weekend at church and I managed to keep the bag away from the kids until we got home. Megan put the gifts under our Christmas tree where they stayed for just a short while. We went straight to Grandma and Grandpa's house after church and stayed until nearly bedtime, so the gifts remained under the tree until today.
This morning, we cooked a big breakfast and then I handed out the gifts from Lauren. The kids LOVED them! I so wish Lauren could have been here to hear the squeals of delight. The kids figured out their little race cars pretty quickly and before long were racing them through out the house.

All of a sudden right before dinner, Joshua started to not feel well. I just feel so bad for him that there doesn't seem to be anything that I can do to make him feel better. Between him being weepy on the couch and trying to get Keith out the door to head back to the station, time slipped away from us tonight. Sometime tomorrow, I'll have the kids call Lauren to thank her for her kindness and generosity.
