That Magical Season

Recently over the last couple weeks, the weather has been changing.  Its colder in the mornings now, and most mornings its wet because it has rained over night.  But by 10am it begins to warm up, and highs are in the mid 70's.  Getting up in the dark is hard, but eating dinner when its dark isn't any better.  Also, the leaves are changing and its so very pretty!

It must be fall!!  And that means one more thing, I can finally say the C word without people completely flipping out on me.  Instead they just give me the look of death that says, "Don't remind me!"

Christmas, Christmas, Christmas!!

You see, I love Christmas!  Best holiday of the year!  And for those of you who aren't keeping track, you only have 11 weeks until its here!

I also love Thanksgiving, and everything else that the holiday season brings each year.  I love to bake, and play in the snow.  (Granted I only love snow when I don't have to drive in it.)  I love to see Sara get excited about the lights on the houses, seeing Santa, writing her letter, and just the wonder she has every year about the entire thing!

This year's holiday season will be filled with even more challenges than before.  Its always been challenging, especially since planning is a nightmare when you have divorced parents, and your child also has parents that are not together.  But this year Sara will have her surgery!  Hopefully one that will change her life for the better.  And she will be in this awful cast for Christmas!  That just means I have to work even harder this year to make it super special for her, and that's exactly what I plan to do. 

No matter how much work it takes, I still can't wait!  The look on her face is more than enough reward.  Its going to be awesome!


  1. I'm forgetful. Please let me know what the surgery is for and what outcomes you're looking for. Lots of love and prayers for a successful surgery, wonderful surgeons and staff and no pain~

    1. Sara is having surgery on her left hip (her strong leg). The plan is to cut off the top of her femur and reattach it at a new angle so that it will no longer slip out of the socket.

      We are hoping to gain for her better balance, more mobility, and a life free from pain in that hip. And who knows, she may no longer need her wheelchair if it is successful. She finally may get the chance to walk most of the time!

      It also involves a spica cast for 8 weeks. :(
