Gavin's cataract surgery is still on schedule for next week! Please keep him in your prayers that he is healthy enough to have the surgery!!! These past 2 months have been rough...we are ready for the surgery to happen so he can heal and see better (so does he)! It sucks that his surgery is a few days before Christmas :( But, we are kinda lucky that the kids are still young enough to not realize what day Christmas actually is ;) That is why we are going to celebrate this weekend (also, the surgery is going to make him temporarily blind for about 2 + weeks)!
This Firday (the 17th) will be our Christmas Eve and we will leave cookies and milk out for Santa along with a note that Gavin will write for him. We will also leave an apple out for his raindeer (gotta take care of santas raindeer...). Saturday morning the boys will wake up to filled stockings, lots of presents under the Christms Tree, cookie crumbs on Santa's plate along with an empty class of milk and a missing apple. Hopefully Santa will read Gavin's letter and write him back :) The boys will also have a big surprise wating for them in their playroom.....no, I can't tell you what it is yet because it's a surprise :) Santa might even track in some snow from the North Pole.
That evening the whole family will be coming over and we will have a fun Christmas dinner and exchange gifts. The only one missing will be my brother Billy :( He will still be in Hawaii with the Army :(
I really want to make this Christmas special for Gavin! Seeing that he is only 5 and this is probably going to be the first Christmas that he will remember!
So, right now I have to leave to pick him up from school, but, please remember to keep him in your thoughts and prayers during this time...
Thank you and may you all have a wonderful holiday season and amazing New Year!!!
