Here is how it went....Friday night 12/23/2011 (which was my seizure anniversary BTW 4 years seizure free!) Josh invited his cousin and his dad over to play pool. Well at some point in time his dad let the dog out, keep in mind she had just gotten a haircut and bath earlier that day. She didn't come in until 4:30am 12/24/2011. As soon as she walked in the door I got a huge whiff of skunk. So I rushed her downstairs gave her a bath (it didn't help) and then Josh made her go outside. This was 5 1/2 hours before I had people coming over. Thank God we got her out soon enough to where my house didn't smell like skunk. I had to go to Kroger that morning to get tomato juice so I could giver her a bath later that evening. To make an even longer story short. Christmas Eve night she got a tomato juice bath and a hydrogen peroxide/baking soda/liquid soak concoction bath that I found online. It has taken the smell out of everything but her head!
So, Joshua and I woke up early (6am) on Christmas morning opened a few gifts and our stockings. Let the kiddos open their stockings

Once we were done at home, we loaded up the car and went to my Mom and Dad's. Please excuse the bare walls and empty rooms they are in the middle of renovating their house. She really does own furniture.

|We bought Daddy a pictured of Dale Earnhardt that he wanted! You can see it in the background of the next picture.|
|This was mine and Josh's gift to the both of them.|

The day had only begun, we spent a couple more hours there and then headed to Taylorsville to eat lunch and visit with my grandparents. After a long day and a lot of driving we came home and our niece and Josh's older brother stopped by for about an hour to see what Santa had left here for her!
It was a wonderful holiday, filled with lots of blessing and love. It feels like it comes and goes quicker and quicker every year. But we had a good December. We are ready to welcome 2012 with open arms and a lot of goals!
Merry Christmas! God Bless!
