Every year since KK has been with us, my parents have come to our home on Christmas day. KK would decorate a birthday cake for Jesus while she waited for them to arrive. We would sing "Happy Birthday" to Jesus as soon as they got there and eat cake before lunch. Then, depending on the time, we would either open gifts or eat lunch. When all was said and done, KK would go home with Nannie and Grampy to sleep over their house for a night or two.

This year, we decided to go to Nannie and Grampy's to celebrate Christmas since the room where the tree and gifts usually reside is KK's bedroom during chemo weeks. 

Earlier this week, there was a bit of sadness in KK's voice as she realized that she wasn't going to be able to sleep over Nannie and Grampy's on Christmas because she would be taking chemo. I called my mom and we arranged a sleepover for Sunday night once KK was finished with this round of chemo.

Christmas Eve day, Nannie called and said that KK could sleep over Christmas night through Sunday evening. She said she would do the midnight dose of Zofran and my dad would do the morning dose. She even said she didn't mind taking care of KK if she throws up. This is a big kids, we always called for dad when we threw up (I did hint to KK that she should call for Grampy if she starts throwing up).

Pray for KK, Nannie and Grampy as God brings them to mind this weekend. Pray that they enjoy their time together and that the time is vomit-free.
