Ella and YaYa

For the last 4 years Ella, my mom and I have baked holiday cookies. It's always really fun and really messy. We had a great time yesterday baking cookies for our friends. We made some fabulous tasty treats!

Good times

We're doing well- Jack is responding well to his seizure meds and we're waiting for an MRI next week. This is a long journey and we're learning so much along the way. We took our annual Christmas picture this weekend- Jack was not real cooperative- the flashing camera bugs him but we were able to get some nice shots. We hope you have a lovely holiday.
