Oh, I do LOVE Christmas!!

and my children seem to love it as much as I do. Well, at least these two so far.

Caroline will learn to love it as much as we do.

She already has that sweet innocence and perpetual joy. She is such a reflection of Jesus and His grace! What a blessing she is!

Unfortunately, Jack and James seem to love this part of Christmas the most . . .

I have been trying to teach them about the true meaning of Christmas. I definitely need to do a better job.

Oh, how I do love these Christmas tree pictures. I look forward to taking them for many, many years.

Some, medical updates . . . Caroline's cardiologist seemed concerned about her progress the last time we saw him. He wants to do a catheterization to check the pressures in her heart. This will be an inpatient procedure and will likely be sometime in early January. He also thought that her heart surgery would be sooner rather than later. Our next appointment with him is at the end of December so we will know more dates in a couple of weeks.

She had an appointment with the genetics counselor, nephrologist, and surgeon a couple weeks ago. They were all in Austin right across from the hospital where Caroline stayed. They were all pretty uneventful. It was pretty surreal being back there though carrying her in her carseat across the parking lot to visit the doctor instead of walking across the parking lot to go to her NICU room to visit her. She has come such a long way in a couple months. So many reasons to praise HIM this holiday season!
