We've managed to avoid the nebulizer for almost a year - but Colin had a major asthma attack today that had us in the doctor's office. He's going to start taking preventive meds, instead of just rescue meds. Right now, he'll be taking 5 days of steroids & nebulizer treatments every 4 hours. The doctor initially thought he'd have to be hospitalized, but thankfully the treatments seem to be doing the trick.He's such an amazingly good sport about it all. The doctor kept exclaiming what a wonderful kid he was, and how it was so great that even though he was in serious respiratory distress, he was still charming and polite. He was flirting with the nurse, laughing with the doc, and struggling to breathe all at the same time!

Colin & Nate chose to leave Santa a hard boiled egg (he needs protein for energy, you know!), carrots for the reindeer, and Daddy talked them into leaving a Coke instead of the hot tea with milk they wanted to leave. Colin was a very tired boy by the time we put out the snack!

We attended a performance of the Nutcracker a couple weekends ago. The boys enjoyed the ballet and I loved this ornament!
I hope someone brings a professional staging of this ballet locally in the next couple years. The children who put on this ballet did a wonderful job, but it was clearly an amateur performance. Perfect for the boys' first ballet, however.
