Snapshot a Day (12/18)

Well, I haven't been keeping up, but here is something from today. I summoned my miniscule amount of energy and got the kids to paint their ornaments for their grandparents. (Here's a link to the craft idea if you're interested.) It felt good to take some pics today as I have not touched the camera for a few days, which is so, so rare for me.

Love it! And I also give it to you for getting the kids to do crafts when you're not feeling well! I hope you are doing better now?

I wouldn't have done a craft, except we had already done step #1 and it was a Christmas gift! But it all worked out.

I'm not really doing too well, to the point where yesterday DH was thinking of 'canceling Christmas', as it were: telling my folks not to come Christmas Eve, and his family to find a different place to have Christmas dinner on Christmas Day. He's worried about my health because of my meds and potential complications, and he's stressed at taking on all the work of house guests and hosting by himself, since he's determined I'm to do nothing but rest. But we've talked and we'll decide on Sunday or Monday what to do, and how to pare down Christmas as best we can while still having fun and some meaningful time together as a family.

Tracy- those are precious! I love the idea! I will lift you up in prayer. It's not fun being sick during the holidays. I hope you start feeling better!
