Ups and Downs

Well, it's been up and down for Emma lately. She has good days where her muscles seem strong and she's able to walk with more ease, and then there are days like the last few where she is extremely fussy and frustrated! She was pretty tired and irritated at therapy on Tuesday. Could be attributed to the fact that she was getting up between 2 and 3 a.m. and not going back to sleep for several hours afterward! We'll have to call the doc and ask about her meds being changed again.

Can you believe Santa was at preschool yesterday for pictures? Guess who was sporting a shiner on her right eye? You guessed it...Emma! What is it with pictures, black eyes and Emma? Poor little thing. I just hope this time she was a little happier for the picture taking than she was for the last school picture.

For an update on last week's happenings around the Dunnam Den...we had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Hope your food and fellowship was as great as ours. The best part for me though, if I'm going to be totally honest, is that our parents helped out with our kiddos, and Kelvin and I got to spend the night away from home and hoodlums precious angels! We had such a great time! How could spending time with my knight in shining armor not be great?

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around our place...slowly but surely!


It's my very favorite time of year. The local Christian radio station here begins playing Christmas music on Thanksgiving day and doesn't stop until the day after Christmas. I never seem to get tired of it. It's wonderful! Have a very merry day!

  2. Praying that Emma has many more 'up' days than 'down.' She is such a sweetie!

    Gorgeous tree, by the way! It's always so sad when it's time for the tree to be put away!
