We rang in the New Year with frigid temperatures. So we have pretty much been hibernating at home. Alex (and I for that matter) really don't do well with cold temps. I must admit though that after our self imposed isolation since flu season started, Alex is getting a little stir crazy. Luckily we are venturing out to Houston next week. Alex LOVES Houston. Being my child and a total social butterfly (when we allow it) he loves seeing all his "girls" at the hospital and all his little mito friends.
In the meantime, we are having a lot of fun with grandpa. Alex and Grandpa love to give each other a hard time and there is lots of laughter.
Alex went for a haircut two weeks ago, but the girl was HORRIBLE! His hair is so uneven and choppy. How do you mess up a buzz???? Anyway, we are taking him this morning to get his haircut again.
Yesterday, We had my Aunt and Uncle over for dinner and to watch football. Alex loves them and was so excited. They also brought him a tent for Christmas. it was a huge hit. He was in and out of that tent the whole time they were here. He decided to "campout" in our room last night. As I write, he is still sound asleep in his tent. The only problem is that the tent is so big it blocks the entrance to our bathroom. You should have seen me trying to get in to brush my teeth last night!
Brucey is still on the job search. We are praying for the right job to come through. I am trying to trust my belief that God has a plan and we are in the right place at the right time. In the meantime, I am so thankful for the friends and family members who have helped us as our financial situation becomes scarier and scarier.
