A day to celebrate!!!

We just returned home from Primary Children's Medical Center for Kaden's bone cyst check up that he has every 3 months. We were told today that his cyst is totally filled in and completely healed!!! We don't have to take him back for another 2 years just to make sure it doesn't come back. I'm so happy that for now we no longer have to worry about his arm breaking due to his bone cyst. I'm so grateful that we are all healthy and hope we never take it for granted. To celebrate we let the boys get ice cream and french fries down stairs at the cafeteria. (I know,not the healthiest lunch, but we felt under the circumstances we'd let the boys pick.) Anyways, Aaron has the whole week before Christmas off work so we have enjoyed having him home. He has been busy converting our camcorder tapes onto DVD so that we can watch them more easily. There is some video we totally forgot we had taken. Some of which contains video of Lucas with the boys. We got a little sad watching them but I'm so glad that we have them. Last night for FHE we had the opportunity to go with friends to a retirement home and visit some elderly people. We sang Christmas carols and took gifts and it was a good experience. I think the boys enjoyed it but they couldn't understand why some of them didn't speak. Well, we are looking forward to Christmas and spending time with family and remembering what Christmas is all about. The boys are still young and are so focused on presents, treats, and playing in the snow. We try to remind them on a regular basis that Christmas is a time to remember our Savior and to do things for others. And our last few FHE activities have focused around what Christmas is all about. But, when asked what their favorite thing about Christmas is, it's still the presents, treats, and snow. Oh, and no school. But, hopefully they'll have a better appreciation as they get older. I don't know how many more years we'll be able to get away with the whole Santa thing. Kaden has asked a lot of questions this year and I feel really guilty lying to him. But, I want just one more year of the magic of Santa for him. He says, "Mom, is Santa real?" I reply with, "Do you believe he's real?" "Yes." "Then he is." And I leave it with that. Jonas wants to know why we don't have a chimney and how Santa gets in. I told him that he has a special key that can open any door. And with that he was satisfied. Well, we wish everyone a very merry Christmas full of peace and love. Until next time....
