Christmas Break part 3

The day after Christmas, we went to the Woehlk's Christmas party. We had so much fun! I think Jamie was slightly overwhelmed at first but he got over it and had a really good time.
The next day, most of my family left to drive to Utah for my grandpa's funeral. It was a difficult decision but we decided not to go because Jamie was sick. Jamie got to play with his cousins one last morning.
The one and only good thing about missing the funeral was that we got to spend a lot of concentrated time with Thomas's family while mine was away. Jamie loved playing with his Grammy so much (and his aunt and Papy but Grammy got the royal treatment). My family got back just in time for New Year's Eve and we got to spend a couple more days with them before everyone went their separate ways.
We also stopped by the Davis's for their New Years party.
Between Jamie's sickness (and the fun fun time of spending the morning of New Year's Day in the ER because no doctors were going to be open for a couple days), his passing it on to Thomas, my grandfather's death, missing his funeral, and seeing my siblings for a considerably shorter time than planned, our break did not quite go as we would have hoped. But we are very thankful for the time we did get to spend with everyone! Can't wait til we can see you all again.

Oh, and by the way, we took Jamie to the doctor as soon as we got home. Turned out he was starting to get an ear infection. They put him on antibiotics and within 2 days, all the horrible congestion, coughing, and eye goopiness that we'd been dealing with for 2 weeks cleared up. It is so nice to have a healthy boy again!
