Christmas with Alisa, Spencer & April!

When Spencer & April made it in to town, we headed over to Alisa's apartment to have a Christmas meal and gift time with them. We were so excited to see them as our visits are few and far between! Charlie tagged along with them and was a lot of fun to play with.

We enjoyed opening gifts and laughing together. It was funny that we saw several repeat presents. (Games, Pajamas, Twizzlers and more!)

Unfortunately our time was interrupted by a phone call that no one ever wants to hear. Alisa's mom had a suspected stroke and was in the emergency room. Within about an hour we got to talk to her and hear her voice and that made all of us feel a little more at ease. She even cracked a few jokes and that exactly what we needed to hear. Since then, she has been diagnosed with early alzheimer's/dimentia and is being taken good care of. She has made some progress from where she was that night, but it is still hard. We love her! We went ahead and hoped for the best and made the most of the rest of the night that we could while we were with each other. She would have wanted nothing less!
