Where have I been you ask? Hibernating. It's cold outside and it makes me feel blah. Me and my babies have just been here cozying up. I hate winter and I can't wait for spring. Until then I plan to keep hibernating. But alas I had to come out of hibernation to update the blog. For the sake of the little fellas who will someday want to read all about themselves, and of course for the mother who will some day want to remember these long winter days with her three babies after they have all grown up. So heres to memories before I forget them.
December- Ahhh December the one winter month that I love. Of course this month was filled with a lot of Christmas joy. The decorations, the parties, the music....and of course the star of December,Christmas. This year we spent Christmas Eve at my parents house. My parents did something really fun this year. They surprised us with envelopes of money and told us we had three hours to go and spend our Christmas money. All us siblings and spouses loaded up in my moms suburban and spent three hours shopping for eight people. It was a lot of fun and such a great idea. When we got back we had dinner then showed my parents what we had all bought with our money. We had a nice Christmas program that we acted out and then we had a visit from Santa for the little boys...and a few big ones. We opened gifts and enjoyed our time together. I just love Christmas eve.

Christmas morning-It appears as though we were all good little girls and boys this year because Santa visited the Johnson home. The boys got new bunk beds and mom and dad got many things off their Christmas wish list. Grandpa and Grandma Voyles came down to celebrate Christmas morning with us. I am always so thankful to have such great family around to spend time with. Later that day we went down had brunch at Justins parents house. We spent some time visiting and the little boys once again got spoiled. Later that evening we were planning on going up to Chad and Debbies for dinner and games with the whole Johnson clan but just as we pulled to a stop at their house Karson threw up everywhere. We ended up going home with sicky and our Christmas dinner ended up being Maverick hot-dogs. Wow what a treat! It was the only place that was open and had food. That night Jade and Meghan came to visit and then we all got some much needed sleep.

The day after Christmas we packed our bags and headed up to the cabin. Justin wasn't feeling all that great and Karson was still a little glum. We had Christmas with the Johnson family and once again we got super spoiled by Santa. By that evening Karson was burning up with a fever and pretty lethargic. By the next morning he still had a temper and there was blood coming out of his ear. We called the doctor made an appointment and ended up having to leave Island park. Turns out Karon had a ruptured ear drum and got put on strong antibiotics to heal it up. Apparently it's just like a really bad ear ache. Luckily Kamden got to play in the snow a little before coming back home. Later that week Kam also got an ear infection. So the rest of the week was spent relaxing and getting kids on the mend. We got to hang out with Jade and Megan a couple more times. It is always fun to see them.

So that was pretty much our Christmas Vacation.
