We finished decorating the house for Christmas on Saturday. The tree is up and decorated, and looks nice in the corner of the living room! We haven't had the 6 ft. tree up for a couple years, and it felt good putting it up again. Judith really hasn't been super interested in touching it, but loves looking at it - so far, the herding away from the tree technique has worked just fine. We'll see how long that lasts - we intentionally avoided any breakable ornaments this year just in case.

Tis the Season
I have a love-hate relationship with this time of year. I love the holidays (having 2 birthdays to celebrate - mine and Judith's - helps too... as much of a pain as gift buying can be haha!), but I despise the germs. It's turning into an interesting time when we're out in public, and it's going to get super interesting at home now that it seems like both John & I are getting colds. I'm really hoping that Judith will have some protection since she just finished round 2 of antibiotics on Saturday, but we'll have to wait and see. In the meantime, we're doing extra hand washing/sanitizing, and are trying to keep Judith away from our faces. Thank God for the Synagis - she'll have some protection with that. But I can guarantee the first moment I notice any symptoms I'll be on the phone with her pulmonologist to find out what our next step should be.
