Finally after over a week of us having it I decided that we need to go to the doctors and see what was going on. For myself, nothing seemed to be prominent. It was just something that had to run its course. I was prescribed an inhaler to help with my wheezing at night, but other then that they could not do anything for me.
As for my little guy, it seemed that he had a double ear infection. How could I have missed that? What kind of a mother am I? I could not believe that I took him to the doctors with no incling that that is was it could be? Of course after the fact, my mom did let me know that on Wednesday he was pulling on his years quite a bit. I did know that he was not himself. Very cranky, and just not feeling up to par. He did not have a fever either.
Anyways, we got him some medicine and I have a totally different boy on my hands this week!!!
We all seem to be on the mend again, and I am hoping this week to get our bugs washed out again, in hopes that they will never return.

All the kids were ready for bed around their normal times, and just went down, but not my little monkey. Not only did he was to stay up late, but he wanted to ring in the new year. There was no incling that Jaxon was tired until we got him home (which was still around 1:30) and laid his head down on his pillow. As soon as that happened, he was out!!!
The evening was spend watching the Canada Junior game, as well as a fierce competition of guys -vs- girls of American Idol on the Wii. The girls of course kicked the guys buts with our singing capabilities.

Curt and I both had to return to work for the 4 days before Christmas, so we kind of got back into the swing of things.
Christmas eve was spent at mom and dad's with us doing our Christmas the night before. My dad had to work on Christmas day, so we had dinner and did presents the night before. We all spend the night there, so my mom did not have to wake up alone on Christmas day, so Jaxon made sure to tell him that in his letter that he wrote to him. He got his milk and cookies let out for him as well.and when we woke up in the morning there were two bites of the cookie for Jaxon to finish up, and a note to thank him!!!After we read his note, and got everyone else up and ready to open presents we made our way down stairs to find that Jaxon must have been a very good boy for the year, because there was a very big pile awaiting him!!! Him and his aunty Cara managed to get them all opened, and he loved them all.After we got our gifts opened we had brunch and then had to make our way over to Curt's parents for our Christmas with them.
(Sorry, no pictures of this because as the day went on, the worse I started to feel. By the end of the day I was down and out. I ended up having a full blown sinus infection with one monstrosity of a head cold to go along with it!!!)
The next day we headed to Toronto to have our Strachan Christmas with my dad's side of the family. Jaxon is the only little one at these gathers, so he got a lot of attention, which was nice, because I still was not feeling very well, and did not have the patients to give him all my attention.
