All-around update

Well, we finally got an appointment for Rowan to see the orthopedist. We're going on December 17, early in the morning. I'm relieved that they are going to see us so quickly and anxious to get some answers. I also had an evaluation with the physical therapist this past Saturday, and she wants to start therapy with us after Rowan's consultation. She wants to find out what the orthopedist thinks and try to tailor the therapy to coordinate with whatever correction we begin. She seemed to think that the PT will help increase the core strength, which can help keep Rowan's back straight once we get it there...hopefully we'll be able to do just that! I'm definitely ready to head to Dallas and get started on whatever we need to do to help her.

David has really been making progress on the house! Here are some pics of the new improvements!

This is the countertop in the laundry room...complete with tile and stain on the cabinets!


Here's a shot of the kitchen cabinets, all stained and so pretty!


This is the travertine we are going to use on the backsplash in the kitchen...I think it's going to be really beautiful!


And finally, here's the kids' upstairs bathroom shower, complete with tile! Now all we need are the fixtures! I'm starting to get so excited, things are really beginning to look good!


We put up our Christmas tree last night, and it looks really nice, but I gotta say...I'm a total grinch. I don't really love Christmas all that much. Don't get me wrong, it's nice and all, but it's all overblown in my humble opinion. I need Christmas for about a week...but "Christmas" has already been going on since after Halloween! Geez. Call me Scrooge if you want, but why can't we enjoy December in any other colors but red and green? I'm trying not to let my grinchiness rub off on my kiddos...they are still excited by the season and I hope it stays that way. Maybe it's just the pricetag on the season that has me saying bah humbug.

I hope the PT or whatever they choose to do works for little Rowan.

Maybe you need some egg nog to put you in the Christmas spirit.
