Bellas Christmas program at school

I watched the video but i couldnt really tell what she said. But she looked so cute lol
One thing I noticed on the tape were all the peopel hacking and coughing.
so I guess I am glad we didnt try to go. IM happy John taped it for me. Here are some photos from the program and their party as well.

You could tell they had a great time from what I saw and heard on the video they were singing REALLY loud. I THINK they really loved singing jingle Bells hahahaa. it was so cute. My family that will be here Christmas you can see the tape and the rest we will try to convert it so we can email to you or copy the tape. IT is not very long. VERY CUTE Though. I am not sure what Bella said I couldnt hear her. she was really cute though.

Health news.. yeah I know yall are as sick of hearing about it as I am of being sick but we did take a bad turn yesterday. I havent called any of yall to tell you whats going on and its not because I dont want you to know.. its hard to call everyone .. and it hurts. It is easier this way since I know you all will read this and are looking at Bella's program photos. So bear with us the ones that are not interested, nothing personal just trying to do this ONE TIME. We did get the OTHER DR that I had seen once before on the phone. He changed me BACK to the meds that were working. My infectious disease dr, instead of another round of what the hospital had me on (that was working did I MENTION THAT ALREADY????) he put me back on the one I have been on FOREVER. seriously on and off for 2 years now at 47.00 a week... do the math.. (that obviously if I keep getting it, IS NOT WORKING hmmmmm lets find the sense in this. BELLA can figure this out) but the dude explained WHY he kept putting me on it but, that it is possible (hmm ya think) that I may have built up an immunity to it (nooo, your kidding? how much DID THAT COST US TO FIND THAT OUT???) SOrry, Im just totally aggravated at this point that they wait till 4 days before Christmas to decide MAYBE we need to do something.. anyway.. we called tonight when I couldnt FEEL the right side of my face...yeah scared us a little, and they put me back on the meds they gave me at the hospital.(HURRRAAAAYYYYYY!!!!!) I have already taken it several hours ago and I can feel my ear some now. It is still numb around where the shingles are but they are dryer and not got the blister part on them like they did. SO it is obvious this medicine is working. (PRAISE THE LORD) I am supposed to go back in tomorrow and the Dr. told me to bring my PJ's. That they will probably do IV therapy and possibly keep me. (sob, tears and frustration over whelm me) I know they want to get this out of my system but IM praying this stuff will just work and I dont have to stay in the hospital. I asked about an at home IV and he said ONLY WITH a home health nurse... and the weekends are tough...) Bella has suffered enough heck we all have. My poor hubby has been doing everything. This man must really love me Im telling you and Im so grateful to him, I REALLY AM. I owe him so much.
I haven't even finished all of your gifts. With the medicine I have been on (you can imagine the $$$ but that isn't the important part even right now)
Im making all your gifts, well most of them. I have done alot dont get me wrong but there are a few that I still have to do. I also enjoy making them It is a great distraction since pain medicine doesn't really help and he told me to scrap, get online or whatever it took to deal with all this. BUT, I feel they mean more than just going out and buying any old thing anyway. so, Be patient. as soon as Im well I will get the rest done. I know everyone least I HOPE you do. Don't give up on getting Christmas cards either You just may get a real surprise and receive them in mid January at the rate IM going. haha Doesn't mean we are not thinking of you all and don't love you.

IF I dont get to talk to you all or post anymore before then...Merry Christmas. I HOPE I will be back home this afternoon to update this post :) fingers toes and everything I can cross ... CROSSED :) IF you call and I don't answer.. DONT worry that means nothing. I could be asleep or just be in pain and don't feel like answering. Thanks for understanding. Thank you to everyone that has been praying. We love you and we HONESTLY DO APPRECIATE YOU.

beginning to look like CHRISTMAS

Finally it started cooling off some. We had a HUGE temperature drop that put me in the bed with what felt like broken bones (aint Lupus fun!) but now I think also it was these stupid Shingles coming back. The dr switched me back to the other medicine and IT JUST doesnt work soooo.. now it is back on my face ear and my back. If you have ever had a bad sunburn how it feels when you lay on the bed with a badly sunburned back.. well that is how it kinda feels except on the lesion or bumps that are open it is well.. It just hurts I guess is the best way to say it,. so I havent been on alot. I did before all this started ... AGAINNNN! get some scrapping done. Im gonna call this dr back and tell him this stuff is NOT working today so MAYBEEE this wont look so... FREAKISH by Christmas :( so say a prayer if you would.

Here are the gifts that I CAN SHOW YOU.. That I have made.

I made this for Bella's Teacher It holds Eye glasses. Her favorite team is Auburn and boy is it her favorite. Hope she likes it.
I also made her a Christmas ornament for her Tree. Bella helped! Im sure she has one but not one THat BELLA helped make hahaha.
This is for John's mom's 12 x 12 album she wanted more pages so I hooked her up. I made 11 pages so far to go in it. Here are just a few. With photos from last christmas and this year.
OK so this one the photo is Older but I had been meaning to scrap this to go in her book and forgot it wasnt in there so... scratch that last year and last christmas since Bella was 2 in this pic above, lol
This last year Nana's Sister Stephy and her husband Evans came down for business and Got to meet Bella for hte first time, It was an instant love connection. Bella just LOVES her and asks about her all the time especially when we paint her nails.
Bella was so scared Santa woudlnt be able to find her last year since we were at Nana and Papa's in Mississippi. I told her not to fear that santa always found the children ont he nice list.. BOY SHE MUSTA BEEN REAL GOOOOD! WE had to enlist my mother's van to help us get all of her stuff home hahahahahaa

Ok This is it for now I must go back to bed. Gonna beg that dr to put me back on the other meds that made me well faster. I SOOOO DON'T HAVE TIME FOR THIS so many more gifts to make and the clock is ticking.. I wonder if this is how the elves feel at Santa's workshop the week of Christmas hahahaahhaaBella has her school program and Christmas party at school today. John is going to take photos and video it for me since I wont be able to go :( BElla is going to look soooo cute in her dress I can't wait to see the tape when he gets back. I will upload the photos to show you after he gets home and I can get them on the computer.
