Winter Hats

I hope everyone had a good Christmas; if that's what your celebrate.

I don't have the energy to do a Wordless Wednesday this week. I don't remember the last time I skipped one of those. I just don't think very many people will partake this week.

Mica had an ear infection, Isaak and I had a cold. Our plans for Christmas day got postponed because my Aunt and Uncle were sick with the tummy flu. Even though all those things were against us, we still had a great Christmas!

On Christmas Eve we went to Grandma and Grandpa Spiehs' house (my mom and dad). My mom got all the grandchildren winter hats.

Here's Isaak's robot hat: 

Isaak kept saying, "I am a robot, bee, bop, do, bop." He called the above expression his, "Robot look". His eyes are big anyhow and they look HUGE when he has his, "Robot look".

Before presents were opened, Mica started crying. His Motrin had worn off and Daddy had to make a RUSH trip to a pharmacy to get some. He doesn't show pain often. I knew he was hurting. Once the he took his Motrin, he was better in 20 min, and bouncing all over again.

Here's Mica's monster hat:

In case you are wondering Mica's tongue is not black. He just ate a black candy cane. It turned his tongue black. Weird!

If you haven't been reading this blog for long, you may not know that Mica was born with a cyst under his tongue. His tongue was thin on one side. The doctors didn't know if he'd eat, talk and he had to get an MRI when he was 2 months old to see if he had any cysts in his brain. Luckily we haven't had any problems. Mica certainly eats! He hardly shuts up! His tongue isn't as thin anymore, but the line down the center isn't centered at all. I just thought I'd explain all that because his funky tongue really shows in this photo. Regardless, I do like this picture though!

Here's a shot of cousin Emerson's hat:

I caught some red eye. :( His hat is super cute. Emerson had 2 tumors found in the fall. They had to go through a lot to have the doctors on one page to treat him. Since he has Trisomy 18, they didn't want to risk his life more than they needed. He's been on light chemo. Two weeks ago they scanned him and found out his tumors are almost gone! :)

I was super excited to give cousin Kailey this shirt:

My one and only niece is heading off to college next year. This age is so hard to buy for. My co-worker has kids that go to the same school. They bought me this shirt and I paid them back. It's nothing she asked for, but I knew she'd love it.

I wanted to get photos of all the kids, but with Christmas all the present opening is at night and everyone is moving. It's kind of hard to get good photos.

I wanted to see my oldest nephew's expression when he unwrapped his gift. I put a gift card in a disco ball box. He's in middle school.

The disco ball is being used for a dance party Mica's having on New Years Eve. We invited kids to come over, so parents could go out if they wanted.

I love fun, funky hats. The owl one is a real hoot. (pun intended lol).

I think this was the year for Christmas delays. We had our fair share of mishaps that really pushed us far behind this year too.

It looks like everything worked out in the end for you though and you had a lovely Christmas!

Love those crazy hats.... all the kids are wearing them. My Grandson has one too!!

Sounds like you had a very busy Christmas even without going to your Aunts.

The hats are great and how awesome that you invited the kids over so the parents could go out on NYEve!!

I'm glad you had a Merry Christmas. I'm sorry your oldest is still sick. :(
