The Christmas Countdown is ON!

by

With Christmas just 4 days away, excitement and anticipation are building for sure!  Rudy has figured out the whole unwrapping gifts routine making it necessary for us to rewrap a few gifts already!  The gifts that arrive early and typically sit patiently under the tree until Christmas have now been stashed in the closet for safe keeping!!!  Ha Ha

The last couple of weeks have been filled with a combination of holiday festivities like the SBRM Staff Christmas Party and Auxiliary Tea, key medical appointments for Rudy and some Silver By Trish shows.  In the midst of all the seasonal and routine, we enjoyed making a new friend from Australia when we hosted Luke for a few days last week through a program at the kids’ high school.  Max and Olivia were great hosts and had fun introducing Luke to many of their friends.  Rudy was particularly happy to have a new playmate!  Ha Ha Thanks again, Luke, for being fun and spontaneous and for putting up with our brand of crazy! 🙂

Last week also included a bittersweet goodbye to an old friend when Rudy’s OT celebrated her retirement from the Medical Therapy Unit!  We will certainly miss Janine but we are also very excited for her and hope to see her around town doing fun retirement things! 😉

I got to go to Rudy’s class for some more holiday fun on Friday and while I was there, Rudy showed off his new classroom desk!
