As I've said before, Christmas is my most favorite time of year. It is a time to celebrate the greatest gift of all with my family. I love the magic of the season. It seems that Maggie's eyes are lit up from the moment the tree begins to go up to when we take it down. It is exactly as I hoped it would be almost 4 years ago.
Our Christmas morning started a little differently this year. We woke up REALLY early and drove to St. Louis Children's Hospital. Our heart support group has been serving breakfast on the cardiac floor for the past few years and this is the first year we have been able to join them. We were the first shift so it was a little slow while we were there. However, some doctors, nurses, and a couple heart families stopped in. We were thrilled to be able to see Ruthie and her mama when they came to help as well.
After we finished at SLCH, we came home and opened presents.
