Oh the presents!

Genevieve had a pretty good Christmas. We spent Xmas Eve with my Mom's side of the family and Santa came to visit over there. Genevieve immediately went for his beard!! The girl loves hair, what can I say? lol. Christmas Day was spent with my Dad's side of the family, as well as with Andy's family later in the day. The only thing I wish I couldve changed was for my Dad to be with us for Christmas, but I totally understand that he couldn't make it up from Phoenix. Hopefully we can get down there in the Spring so Viv can meet her only Grandpa. She got tons of clothes for Christmas, which is GREAT, as well as some books, movies, only a few toys (thankfully, since our living room is crowded with her toys already... I swear she has more toys than ToysRUs!), and her beloved Cookie Monster puppet! For 2 months now, everytime we go to Target in the toy area... the second she would see this puppet, she would light up and smile. So of course she had to have it for Xmas, thanks to my Dad :) I made sure to take it out of the box before I wrapped it so she could have it right away, and sure enough when she unwrapped it and I opened the box, her eyes shot to me, and shot back to Cookie like "really mom, can I have him?!" it was absolutely adorable. I'm happy she had such a good Christmas. Oh and a white Christmas at that! We got so much snow here... probably roughly a foot fell Xmas eve and Xmas day. It's beautiful... however now it's all turning to ice, so the roads suck.

We have our Genetics Counseling appointment on Tuesday (it had to be rescheduled), so they will be telling us more information about the KRT1 Mutation. I doubt it will be anything we don't already know, but we wanted to keep the appointment just in case.

In just a few weeks we will be meeting our amazing EHK friends from Colorado, Jenny and Joel. Their son, Jeremiah, is 2 months younger than Viv and has a severe case of EHK. They are coming to be seen at the Mayo Clinic, so we will drive down to have lunch/dinner with them. I'm super excited for it. They've been our "closest" contact, as we are kind of going through it all together since the kids are so close in age.

I'm sure I will update again after our Genetics appt on Tuesday. As for now, I'm freezing and must go! I hope everyone had a great and safe holiday!
