Merry Christmas!

Liam wants to wish you all a very merry Christmas! And tell you he's lost another tooth! He's looking very snaggly with only one permanent replacing the 5 he's lost so far this year.

We bucked tradition this year and instead of presents we gifted each other our presence. 

We took off with the kids to our favorite destination, the mountains, to experience some firsts: tubing, skiing, and snowboarding!

The kids have enjoyed it so much and wish we had done this years ago. 

Even  though Liam hates to travel (we laid him across Mimi's lap for half the car trip) and dislikes change, he's done really well. 

We got to cut down our very first real Christmas tree!

We are ridiculously grateful for the blessings we have been given this year.  It is not easy traveling with a significantly disabled young one: sleep is minimal, diaper rashes from long car trips, vomiting when he's nervous, afraid he feels left out when we take off to do the things he can't...but no matter the trouble, Liam's worth the trouble and we are grateful for every family moment when our kids are always headed in different directions these days. It's tough to find time to get us all together in one place and with Rylie transferring colleges to one quite some distance from us this next year we are cherishing and enjoying this Christmas. Much love from our family to yours.  ❤️
