I'm going to give the short, picture filled version to catch up.
My Dad went in for total knee replacement surgery on Tuesday the 16th. He did great through surgery and was resting comfortably when he suffered a small stroke early the next morning. After being transported to Mercy, a week working with doctors, nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists, stroke team specialists and all of us kids, he came home the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. He is proof that the Lord does answer prayers. My Dad went from not being able to say his name or his age to being able to speak in full scentences in less than a week. He is in the beginning stages of a long road of recovery and continued therapy but hopefully his head and knee will be good as new very very soon!
Here he is getting up with the therapist for the first time
Then we had Cruz's Thanksgiving Program and lunch on Wednesday. Here's my little Indian!!!:)
Cruz and his BFF Indian Brodie!
We bought new basketball shoes for Cruz.
We spent Thanksgiving at my parents house. We ate tons of food, took golf cart rides, and watched the Macy's parade and football all afternoon!
Jett decided he needed to wear this bike helmet while in the house??? He is very entertaining!
Jett also tried to drive the golf cart a few times!
Then we came home and ate oreos for dinner because apparently we didn't get enough to eat at Nana and Chiefs house???
On Friday, the boys decided to give Hank mani/pedi's! Ha! He was not a fan but I think he tolerated it because he was getting loads of attention!
We finished putting up our Christmas decorations! Jett was just in awe of the beautiful lights and ornaments!
And Sunday, we delivered our Christmas lists to Santa! We were doing so well. Jett was even saying Ho Ho Ho and waving to Santa while we waited in line. And then...
When I tried to set him in Santa's lap, he flipped out!:( His lip was quivering and he had a death grip on my arm. Needless to say, we only got a good pic of Santa and Cruz. Maybe next time!:)
It has definitely been an eventful 10 days! And with Christmas right around the corner, I'm sure there will be no slowing down for our gang!
We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
