Happy New Year!

I hope that everyone was able to have a wonderful and safe Holiday! Ben and I were able to spend a week with my sister Tricia and her family for Christmas. It was very nice to be with family and for Ben to spend time with his cousins. Ben was so cute on Christmas, he was thrilled with all the presents that he got and was on his best behavior. We were able to attend a couple of family Christmas parties and I really enjoyed getting to catch up with cousins and aunts and uncles. We were also able to spend some time with my parents over Christmas and went out to the movies.
Elaina continues to astound me! Her oxygen saturations are staying in the mid 80's (82-87%), and her color is continuing to improve. She's trying to roll over and is full of smiles! She is so strong and beautiful! It was so fun to open presents with her and see the excitement on her face with some of the toys that she got. I left my camera at my friends house (oops!!!), but I will post pictures as soon as I get the opportunity.
Next week is going to be a busy one. I've got 2 appointments on Tuesday up at Primary Children's, one for Ben and one for Elaina. Then we have our big day on Tuesday. I will try to post more as I know what is happening.

Well, sorry for the short post, I just wanted to give a quick update and let everyone know that I hope you have a fantastic New Year! I plan on it being a good one!
Hollie, Ben and Elaina
