Since it was a "We have a suspicious lump" referral, they got him in quickly. The dermatologist is confident it's just a cyst, but she biopsied it just in case. He's got a bandage on it til tomorrow, but the Ear Thingie O' Doom is gone!
We came back here for spaghetti, cookie decorating, and a night of relaxing. The kids are asleep, the gifts are under the tree and by the fireplace, and I'm ready to crash.
Merry Christmas, everyone. I hope you get something lovely in your stocking. :D
My aunt is one of my favorite people in the world. I'm so thrilled she's going to be spending the holiday with us.
Amelia had a school friend over for a playdate today. It was pretty long playdate (2.5 hours) while the other mom was out running errands (she has a small baby, and I remember those sleep deprived days so well.). Amelia and her friend had so much fun playing together, and while I was tired keeping the two of them plus Katie entertained and the house intact, it was worth it. (Activitities included Play-doh, hide and seek, drawing, jumping on the mini-trampoline, chasing, "Supergirl", watching an episode of Martha Speaks, more chasing, a tour of the house, aquadoodling , and having a snack. It's amazing how much three children can pack into less than three hours.)
Amelia was so happy, her friend had a great time, and the next playdate (a drop-off at the friend's house) is coming up soon!
The rules are that for 8 days you have to post something that made you happy that day. Tag 8 people to do the same. I tag anyone who wants to do this. It's good to be grateful.
