Christmas Eve 2013

We stayed as close to our ivy girl for Christmas break as much as possible.  The kids loved
staying at the Grand America for Christmas and it was so nice to switch off sitting with ivy.
Christmas eve was spent making totally different, but still magical memories.  
The kids all got dressed in their jammies that Buddy the elf dropped off to them at the Hotel.  
They came up to see Ivy and visit in her room for a while then we went to dinner
and swimming at the Indoor pool. The Grand also had the coolest Gingerbread houses
all throughout the Hotel.    

They mostly loved jumping from Bed to Bed while watching our favorite christmas movie
"Home Alone!"  As hard as it was leaving Ivy for the night, my other kids needed me too.
She was out for that whole week, sleeping because she was intubated. Which kind 
of made it a bit easier to leave for a bit. I still struggled not having her home with us.
One of the hardest things we've ever had to go through.

We didn't make Santa cookies, but we left him some nice chocolate covered 
strawberries and sparkling cider. ha!
I adore these sweet letters... especially Hayes' {sniff sniff}
