Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! We hope you and your family had a great day!

The kids woke up at their usual time on Christmas morning, they were so excited to see all the presents under and around the tree. Everyone loved what they got and it was a great day!

What the kids liked the most was the fact that I "caught" Santa in the act of putting gifts out.

I made the photo using a site called Capture the Magic. You upload your own photo, then they have about 30 different Santa poses you can choose. So we told the kids that I left my camera out and it was on a timer so it took a picture of Santa as he showed up. They loved this and told everyone about it!

Helping Zack out, he really had no idea what was going on

My aunts came over and asked us all to go and we are so glad we said yes, we had a blast and so did the kids! We had no idea they would be open but man, it was fun!!! And just in case you were wondering, I beat Mark in both games. Woohoo!!!

Merry Christmas!!!

His first shiner

Zack got his first black eye tonight. I should start out by saying it's been a terrible few days for him. Wednesday night he came down with a fever, a pretty high one too that didn't break until Saturday morning.

Then this morning he wakes up and his entire body is covered in hives. So I call his doctor to get him seen. We get there she looks him over and we discover he has a massive ear infection, in the same ear as when he had surgery. She thinks it could still be the same ear infection. Poor baby!!

So we got him some new stronger meds amd he naps most of the afternoon. Come tonight Wyatt and Zack are goofing around together and Zack starts screaming, turns out Wy bumped him with a toy on the face. We didn't see anything and once he was calmed down he went back to play. Fast forward 30 minutes and his eye is red and swollen. Oh boy. I bet it's going to look great in the morning lol

Here are some pictures of the poor little guy.

Here's to a better tomorrow Zacky!

Christmas Train and Concert

On Saturday we headed downtown to see the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train, they come through every year the kids love seeing all the lights on the train and of course there is Santa!

Waiting for the train to head in

Here is comes!

Since it was moving a tad too fast for my little Cannon camera, I took video of it instead

Last night was also Wyatt's Christmas concert at his school

Here is a video of him singing Away in a Manger

Art Day!

It's art day here at Chicks in Our Nest

Below you will find a adorable assortment of art that the kids have done within the last 2 weeks

We are going to start with my favorite right off the bat, Wyatt's camel. I love the humps. Ha Ha Ha

Then we have Lucy's paint art from pre-school. She sees a girl when she looks at her painting

Next up is Wyatt again. He had to write out a story that was told to them, about not liking spaghetti. Here is his version along with pictures.

Lucy's drawing of Zack

Finally my homemade birthday cards from yesterday

Wyatt gave me a rocket and $5, Lucy drew our house and a lovely picture of me

Hope you enjoyed looking at all the art pictures!

Update and a video!

So we went to the dr on Tuesday, we got in right away and the dr popped off one side of the bandage and it came right off!

Turns out he used glue on the outside and disovable stitches on the inside so there was nothing to take out! Very nice!

Test results came back as it being a Lymphangioma only, so no cancer! Woohoo!!!

Dr said he can and will get more, but they won't be so fast to take them out now that they know what it is.

He has a nice 3 inch scar that will take a year to heal fully but we will take it! I tried getting a picture of the scar today, but that didn't work, so I will try again tomorrow.

But I did get a video of him walking!!

Guess who is walking?!?!

Zack is walking!! I can't belive I am excited over this lol, as this boy gets into everything! But I am and it's SO adorable watching him stumble around.

I will get some video of it and post it this week.

So far he can make it about 30 steps before he gets tired and falls down. He is loving it and at times he walks to fast he is almost running.

So far no bumps on the head lol

Today we go to the doctor to see if Zack's stitches can come out, fingers crossed that they can! I am also hoping we get some test results back.
