FUN trip back to Boston Children's Hospital

We had a blast today as a family!  Grace has been doing so much better on a slower methadone wean and the rest of the family continues to remain healthy, praise God!  This morning, we continued to enjoy some good ole' family time in the hotel room, which included some serious wrestling.  Then, this afternoon we ventured over to Boston Children's Hospital and showed Abigail and Andrew where Grace had been living the last two months.  They also had the opportunity to meet some of Grace's nurses, nurse practitioners, and even her cardiologist, Dr. Marx.  The kids even got to enjoy the infamous ball maze in the lobby at Boston Children's.  

Oh yeah, did I mention that part of the fun of our time in Boston has been the different modes of transportation that the kids have been able to take...well, today it was experiencing a taxi cab for the first time.  We ended our day with a trip to The Cheesecake Factory, thanks to a gift card we received from one of Kristi's high school classmates.  Thank you for all that you have done for our family and for making our Christmas a special one, in fact it is so much fun, we just might need to do something like this again for another Christmas (minus the hospital part)!

It's me- check out the level of joy that we were blessed with this morning (please disregard my bed head and I just woke up face :-).  We were watching Andrew entertaining Grace by running around and then jump into a chair while it spins...
PJ party while watching the 49er game tonight...

Enjoying a yummy dinner AND we have enough left on our gift card for another meal! Woo Hoo! Thanks Dave!!!

Seeing the kids' smiles, it is clearly obvious that in spite of having visited the hospital, everyone in the family is in high spirits. The girls' matching PJs are adorable, and the little boy's dragon PJs is cute as well. I hope the whole family stays happy and healthy as the days go by! Cheers!
