Catching up!!

Put up all the decorations!!

stockings are hung!

We drove to philly for recasting on her left foot, as you can see her foot has regressed quite a bit. but we are not surprised as she has had several growth spurts this past year and her left side is more affected  and was very stubborn the first time around
you can see how she was walking on the side of her foot again  :(

trying to get used to a cast again - she was very uncomfortable

stopped for lunch on the way home - ready to play!

by bed time she was up and walking!!
Then 4 days later we were heading back to Philly for a cast change
Temple University has students caroling!

after 1 cast you can see some movement!

fell asleep waiting for dr vB (we left home at 4:30 am)
We left Philly at 3:00 pm and hit all the traffic and did not get home till 10:00 - I was exhausted!

We adopted an elf! Meet Jingles!!
Silly boy!! the kids LOVED this!

Bad boy making a mess!!!

Can you see me???? I told him to dust while he was there!

hugging (choking) my buddy
Went to Danny's 4th grade winter concert!
Danny is middle row next to last on the left - he did Great!!

An elf after my own heart!! he had to put a blanket on  cause it was cold in the fridge

ooh ooh!! bagged!
This morning we left home at 7:00 to drive down to Philly
look at the difference with 2 casts!! almost flat  again!!!

she is VERY happy with their new colors!!
and it is lightweight.

We are staying in Philly for the weekend as Gerri is beinng casted again on Monday. As soon as she is done we will jump in the car and head home. We hope to be home before the storms hit.

Prayers go out to all the families in Newtown, CT that are going to sleep after saying goodbye to their loved ones today. I just can't imagine. I heard about it while in clinic and can't imagine how someone could harm so many innocent people.
hug your children extra tight tonight!!
