Christmas Eve
We had a crazy Christmas Eve morning.  I was making breakfast and everyone was sitting at the table and I passed out!  I have had a bad cold for a couple of weeks and had actually gone to the doctor on Wednesday because I had been having some bad pain under my ribs on the left side when I coughed, sneezed or laughed.  He said I probably pulled a muscle or cracked a rib from coughing.  Oh, my!  Well, on Saturday morning, I sneezed a particularly large sneeze and then I passed out.  After a trip to the ER and quite a thorough work-up, I was diagnosed with having a vaso-vagal reaction to the pain from the sneeze.  Really?!  I have given birth twice with out pain medication, but that sneeze was really a doozy, I guess!  The good news is that I am fine!  I feel like I ruined Christmas Eve.  We didn't even go to Mass!  Mike would barely let me off of the couch and he is still watching me very cautiously!  He is definitely a better nurse than I am :o)  

Christmas Day
The boys had a great day and Santa was so good to them, as well as Mike and I, too!  We went to Mike's Aunt and Uncle's for a fantastic dinner and were lucky to get to celebrate with a bunch of Walsh's!  

Like my new pjs?  They were a gift from Mike and the boys!  Not only am I modeling the pjs, I'm also sporting a 14 week along baby bump!  That's right!  Baby #3 is coming in June!  We are very excited!  

The boys were very excited to get to spend part of the Christmas holiday with their cousin, Olivia!
Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all of our friends and family!  We hope you had a joyous holiday, surrounded by the ones you love!
