my mom loved christmas VERY much. she loved to shop, decorate and wear sweatshirts that lit up. she liked to sew sequins on little santa pillows and make a big pot of stew on christmas eve. she liked to buy you everything on your list PLUS a few VERY silly things. her love language was gifting for sure. she was one of those precious people that LOVED a new fun product. for example...she had a quesadilla maker, popcorn popper, pizza cooker, big fry daddy, little fry daddy, sandwich cooker, george foreman grill, cotton candy maker, extendable ceiling duster etc. You get the idea. I am not sure she used this stuff ever once. BUT she sure wasnt going to pass them up in the store. She bought us all ped eggs one year and those weird hair wrap things. We got an automatic toilet bowl cleaner once and a dish sponge that vibrated. We had space bags and lipo slim oh and one of those gloves that you can stick your hand in a fire with it on. That is actually a lie. Ours caught on fire. Anyways, her gifts were precious. She got us useful things that we wanted or needed and then she got us fun things that she didnt have room in her kitchen for.

These past five days have been incredibly long. Thursday and Friday Justin had his IVIG treatments. Saturday morning he woke up very sick. Terrible headache, yucky stomach stuff, fever, chills, cold sweats, pain all over, pale and weird looking etc. It was a long day of NO eating and trying to force water down his throat. Sunday was equally as yucky and he had some other dumb symptoms. He was extremely stubborn and even though his Dr. told me to take him to the ER....he refused. Bryce was bummed that Daddy was in bed all weekend and even extra bummed that Daddy couldnt come to Jingle Jam. (although if you saw bryce at jingle jam you may not believe that he was a little sad lol)
And now today he had quite the adventure. He had a bone density test and then had a stinky port put in. The surgery was only supposed to last about 45 minutes, BUT he had some anesthesia issues and it took about 3 hours. So 6 hours in the outpatient center and 13 stiches later...we are home. Justin is recovering in our cozy bed & he said it hurts pretty badly.
The purpose of this port is that his little veins are just not holding up anymore. The nurses need better access for his infusions it will be easier for him since he has to have blood drawn several times a week now. It is something that will stay in long term.
He really hates it a lot.
Tomorrow afternoon he will see the liver specialist. He is not really up for getting out of bed tomorrow, but he has had this appointment for several months and cannot miss it.
McElhannons are weary.

Here is our December so far in pictures....
How exciting is that??
Braxton's 2nd Birthday Party!
The lucky boy got to share his party with his two best pals, Cullen & Xander. We had so much fun celebrating our Little Buckaroos turning TWO! We even had 40 little cowboys and cowgirls to celebrate with us.
So much fun at MOPS craft day!
We have had an eventful couple of weeks. Lots of fun things happening amidst all the poo. Lots of parties with our most favorite folks. Blessed and thankful all the way to Pluto.
