Tis the Season...

To be jolly! And boy am I jolly today!!!! Nathan had his followup visit with the eye Dr. that performed his surgery about 2.5 weeks ago. She is happy with the outcome of his eyes, and believes that with patching and him wearing his glasses, he may get that vision corrected and even get his depth perception back! How wonderful is that?!?!!!! He did a great job today while the assistant measured his eyes, test after test, naming letter after letter. I told him he was doing a great job and winning, so we celebrated by going and buying a toy. He even insisted that we get Jacob a toy. What a great kid! Our next visit is not until April of next year. Isn't that wonderful!! I'm also glad that I had good weather to drive in today, since it snowed yesterday. Luckily most of the snow was washed away, and it was actually in the 50's in the town we were in, in Mass, so Nathan and I took our coats off and enjoyed the sun. Imagine that...no coat on Dec. 1st in New England!! Who would have thought?!?? :o)
The boys got to visit Old St. Nick a week or so ago. I swear that Santa just sends their hair into wild mode!! OK, OK it could have been the hats they were wearing since it was cold outside, but I still blame Santa. ha ha
HAPPY HOLIDAYS! May your days be Merry and Bright.

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. I'm really enjoying the warm New England days, but I know it's going to snow down here soon!
