Santa was stopping by our house a day early this Christmas because we were going to be gone on Christmas morning. So Sunday evening we made our cookies to set out for the big guy, watched The Grinch, got on our Christmas PJs and were all ready to read our Christmas story book in Henson's bed together when plans changed juuuuuuust a tad....
As Henson excitedly attempted to leap into bed, he slipped off and caught himself with his elbow. Not. Good. After a good 8:30pm-4:00am hospital experience we came home with a broken elbow and a splint until we could get in to the pediatric ortho on Wednesday morning.
Santa did not forget this brave dude, though. Santa still arrived in time for the presents to be under the tree before H woke up (at noon the next day).

everything they asked for, and we were all
blessed by all being together.
