My princess was up this morning at quarter to three with an earache. I took her temp and she wasn't running one. She's been dealing with one sickness after another. I went back and forth with myself in my head about calling the hospital and telling them she wouldn't be in today. I ended up deciding to go ahead and take her in just in case. The end result: We are home, my princess is still sleeping, and she still has those pesky tonsils of hers. Yep, surgery was a no go today. They sent us home with instructions for her to get better and reschedule. I am all for the get better part. Not too thrilled about the whole reschedule...preparation and waiting. I had a good cry when we got back out to the parking lot and then again after I got my princess resting comfortably in her bed. I know it's God's perfect timing...and today just wasn't the day. This Mommy just wants her baby to finally feel good again.

My princess is a planner, list maker just like myself. So, when I came across this bag sitting by her bedroom door, it made me proud. Tomorrow is her big day...she is saying "good-bye" forever to her tonsils. Little by little, I have been giving her a heads up on what to expect and what is going to happen so she is a bit more comfortable and not so nervous that day. Well, I told her on Tuesday, after talking to the surgery department, about a list of things she could bring. She was very excited to find that she can come in her pj's, bring a stuffed animal, and pack her own special blanket...anything to help her through. She found a gift bag, labeled it, and began to check things off her list. She seems to be doing a lot better with the idea....and Mommy just can't wait until it's all over.

This year, the kids decided they wanted to make their teachers something for Christmas. Last year we made Kait's teacher a gift in a mug. This year, we went bigger and used a jar. It was a lot of fun and made me wonder why we don't give these more often to more people. I got the quart jars on clearance at Walmart and then just had to buy the M&M's and ribbon...we had the rest on hand. Fun, fun!

The older the kids get, the more fun it is to make our own Christmas traditions. Here are a few of the "sweet" ones:

I was quite humored the other night while talking to my princess. She began to inform me about a very close friend she has at school. His name is Eric. I began asking questions about her friend and her answers cracked me up. I first asked her what he looked like. She said that he has black hair and brown eyes...and big nostrils that he can fit a fruit snack in. She was pretty impressed by this and began trying to show me with her own nose just how big his nostrils are (and yes, she used the word nostrils). You have to go big to impress my little girl. You can be the fastest, smartest kid in the class...but if you can't fit a fruit snack in your nostril you are out of the running. Way to go, Eric, in my little girl's book you are number one for that fruit snack trick of yours.
