My Merry Little Christmas

I can't remember the last time I felt this well at Christmas. Usually I try to summon up all my energy and strength just to get through a party or two. This year was different. Not only was my Christmas enjoyable, but I also felt well for all of the events I attended. It's hard to believe that just a few weeks ago I was sitting at Thanksgiving dinner sucking oxygen through a nasal canula.

Today has been a very nice, restful day. Brad and I got the whole house straightened up. We had made quite a mess of wrapping paper and gift boxes. It was fun to open so many gifts. Brad never ceases to amaze me with the thoughtfulness he puts into selecting things for me to enjoy. In my opinion he is the world's sweetest, most caring husband. All I ever have to do is ask for something and he'll make it happen. He's pretty cute when he's interacting with the bunnies too :)

Speaking of the bunnies, we're making more progress with them being interactive with me. They still largely prefer each other's company to my own, but the do come over to investigate whenever I call them. I'm learning a lot about their personalities too. Coral usually hangs back and observes Sandy before becoming involved on her own. Last night I had Sandy sit on the couch with me while I watched a movie. Right now I'm just letting them run around in the loft. They seem to be enjoying themselves.

Christmas day might be over but the partying is not yet ended. Tomorrow Brad and I are going to spend some time with his high school "Band geek" friends for awhile. Then on Sunday my parents, her sister and her boyfriend are coming over after church for dinner. I'm really looking forward to that. Generally I like anything where I get to play the part of the hostess. I've got the menu all planned out already and can't wait to prepare it. Mmmmm.

Well, off I go to do some knitting. I hope everyone had as wonderful a Christmas as I did.

Hi, Lauren,
It is so nice to read your post. I'm SO glad you felt well for the holiday!
So glad to hear you are feeling better and HOME! Can't wait to see new pics of the bunnies. Froggy LOVES bunnies and I'm sure it's only a matter of time before we get one.
