3 more weeks until Christmas vacation

Happy December to everyone! My goodness, I can't believe it's already December. Only 3 more weeks until Christmas vacation. Yes, this is my first day back from Thanksgiving vacation and I am already counting down until the next vacation.

Okay, an update on Tracey.... she gets to keep her tonsils for now. The doc said if she starts having trouble with them then he can take them out. Which is pretty much what I figured he would say.

But now her arm is really bothering her. For those of you who don't know, she has a hemangioma on her left forearm. It's an abnormal growth of your blood vessels. It's there when you're born and usually no body knows its even there. Last year her arm swelled up and was in a lot of pain. After an MRI and a visit to a specialist in Abq at UNMH she was finally diagnosed with the hemangioma. We go back for checkups on it every 6 months. If it starts to affect motor function them she will have to have surgery on it, but so far it's been okay.

But after she was recovering from her tonsils her arm started causing her lots of pain. We have our 6 month checkup this Friday so we'll see what they say.

Thanksgiving was great. We had family over at our house and had a great feast. On Wednesday Gina and her family spent the night on the way to Quemado so we took lots of pictures of the girls together. My little ones are finally getting to know her girls since they haven't been around. They moved to West Virginia right before Kylee was born. It's great to see them all together clowning around.
