2010 Wiscombe Family Christmas Letter
I can hardly believe another year has come and gone. It has been a busy year in the Wiscombe family. Half the year was spent unemployed and the other half in and out of the hospital and doctor offices.
Jaxon turned 1 in June and has had a very eventful year. In January he got RSV and was hospitalized for 5 days. This was not a fun time for mommy or Abby, but we made it through. And then in September he had to have surgery on his mouth to remove 4 teeth and cap 4 teeth. Jaxon has had a lot of medical visits and we are hoping that the new year brings him better health. He was born with severe acid problems, lung issues, and stomach issues. In the new year he will have testing done on his stomach to see if they will want to do surgery or not. We are hoping that he won't have to go through that kind of surgery, but we will see. He loves to follow in his big sister's footsteps. He dances around the room to any kind of music, loves trucks, coloring, painting, making messes and throwing food. He has a great arm and we hope that he will find a good way to use it. He has a set of golf clubs and we had to take them away, because they became deadly weapons. Jaxon weighs 22 pounds and is 28 inches tall. He is in the 5% for weight and 3% for height.
Abby turned 4 in April, and had a Chuck E Cheese birthday party. She was so excited to have family and friends there to celebrate with her. She is becoming quite the young lady. Abby is really into girlie things and that makes her mom a bit crazy. She loves to have her hair done everyday in sponge curlers, and change her outfit about 6 times a day. If anything she is helping keep the house clean and fresh with all the laundry mom has to do. Abby loves to color and paint. It has become one of her most favorite things to do, and with a sick brother she has found a way to spend time by herself doing something she loves. Abby spent a lot of time at the pool this year, and really had a nice tan. The preschool here was over crowded, so Abby doesn't go to preschool. Mom teaches her school at home, and everyday we learn a new letter and learn new words. Every once in a while I will hear her reading Jaxon books, and it is fun to hear her growing up. Abby loves reading, baths, swimming, biking, painting, cooking, and helping with her little brother. She is going to begin a dance class in January and her brother a tumbling class. They are so excited for what the new year will bring to them.
Bradly finally found a job in July with Direct TV, and has worked a lot of long hours to finally catch up on all the bills. On his days off he loves to play with the kids, but especially loves bath time. You should hear the giggles that come out of the bathtub, but the one thing mommy doesn't like is the mess she has to clean up when they are done. You would think the bathroom were a swimming pool.
As for me, Mommy, I have spent the year running from one appointment to the next. I am grateful for the ability to stay home with my kiddos. I try my hardest to keep up on posting pictures for our friends and family, I keep my 2 blogs updated as much as possible, and will begin school in the New Year. Between laundry, cooking, cleaning, playing with the kids, and hoping for sleep this keeps me busy.
Our family looks forward to the New Year and all that can happen. We wish all of you a very Merry Christmas filled with love, adventure, and family. We hope that the New Year brings you new travels, adventures, and fun times. May you all be safe, and remember the reason for the season.
Brad(30), Pam(34), Abby(4), and Jaxon(1).
