A Christmas Miracle

With Michael being gone, I decided to take the kids on a shopping trip with Grandma on Saturday. The kids were awesome! I took my big double stroller that I literally had to dust off because I haven't used it in so long. Mikey brought his Leapster and played on that for most of the way. The miracle part of this story is that Mikey finally sat on Santa's lap. I can't believe it! He's been scared to death of him since he was about 18 months old and had a bad Santa experience (another story). Anyway, we actually got a cute pic of Mikey and Jovie on his lap. Afterward we went to Red Robin for lunch where Mikey decided he wanted to play the claw game. He walks up to the machine and sees a Buzz Lightyear buried in the back. He says to me "I'm gonna get that Buzz"... I think to myself "yeah, right". He sticks the coins in, uses the joystick, and actually snags the Buzz by the arm, and pulled him out of the huge pile. I couldn't believe that he actually won it, and I know that it was pure luck! Needless to say, he thinks that he is all that right now.
On an even better note, Michael is coming home tomorrow!!! Yay!! I'm so excited to see him, and spend some time with him before our appointment with the specialist on Thursday. He is only home until Sunday morning, and then he won't be home until Christmas Eve. I'm definitely going to have my hands full getting everything ready for Christmas on my own, but I feel like I'm up for the challenge.
