Christmas 2010 wasn't exactly the best Christmas ever. It should have been - it was Carter's first Christmas ever, and we were all excited about surprising little David with his much-anticipated train table. We even had a gorgeous white blanket of snow fall over the holiday, something that rarely ever happens here. We forgot, however, to ask Santa for a germ-free Christmas. A few days before the family arrived Carter got really sick with the flu and some kind of stomach bug and spent days throwing up and subsisting on nothing but Pedialyte. On top of that my sister-in-law's boyfriend and I both got food poisoning on Christmas Eve and spent most of the evening hugging the toilet or laying prone on the bed. We managed to drag ourselves out of bed for Christmas morning, but ended up cancelling the traditional Christmas dinner with my family. Not the greatest celebration, but after the year we had in 2010 it was sort of like....the (sour) icing on the cake. At least we all were together to share the "joy"!
