A Very Merry post Christmas to you all!
The Kid had her Wisdom teeth removed a few weeks ago. It was easy extraction, so they say. I don't have any embarrassing video, just one chuckle-worthy shot of her after we put her coat on. She had her arms sticking straight out and I said she could put them down. She only got them as far as her face and has no recollection of this. They waste no time in getting them out the door; basically just wheeled her out and put her in the car. She was out until we got to the drugstore to pick up her meds. She got the usual anti-biotics as well as a course of Prednisone. For pain they prescribed Hydrocodone and Oxycodone. That seemed a bit extreme to me so thankfully all she needed was the Hydro. When she finished the anti-biotics, she got a rash from them. It doesn't bother her but she looks like she's got measles, even on her palms!
Christmas Eve was spent at my Mom's with brothers and their wives, nephew and wife, and us in attendance. I made a baked potato bar and we had spiral ham and other goodies too. It was a nice evening and we were home about 9:30.
Christmas morning was fun and cozy with just us three. I always put together one crazy gift for The Kid. Usually I fill her stocking with candy but decided to switch it up. Instead I put in practical things like deodorant, toothpaste, notepads, etc. She was quite perplexed to not find any candy in there. Hubby then asked her to go get something out of his dresser and she came back with this.
I rolled 6.5 lbs of candy into a giant ball with saran wrap and tape. It took her quite awhile to unwrap it all. I told her I still got some tricks up my sleeve!
Didn't hear a peep from The Sons. Not one word. They couldn't take a minute out of their day to say Merry Christmas to their Dad or Sister, truly sad and disrespectful if you ask me.
Well that wraps up the end of the year for us and I guess we'll meet again next year.
