After they took him back for surgery, we only had to wait about thirty minutes. The doctor came and spoke to Ben and me after he was done and informed us the surgery went well and that to expect his voice to be higher-pitched. I didn't believe him, until we were walking to see Davis and he opened up his mouth to show me his throat and said in a squeaky voice,"Mom, they took my tonsils out." Indeed they did my precious little chipmunk. He sounds like he has been sucking on helium. I can't remember if the doctor said this was a temporary thing or permanent.
Nevertheless, he has been doing so well since we returned home. He requested macaroni and cheese for breakfast the following morning and would eat pretty much anything if we would let him. Several family and friends have stopped by to visit bearing gifts, and this has also kept his spirits up as well. He told me "Wow! So many people are bringing me so many presents." It has definitely been an early Christmas for Davis, and it hasn't hurt that he's been able to eat unlimited amounts of popsicles and ice cream!

During the feast the children dressed up in their Indian costumes that they made themselves. Each student drew a picture of what they were thankful for and they each had a turn sharing what it was. One of Davis's friends said he was thankful for road lizards, snakes, and alligators. Davis said he was thankful that he was getting his tonsils out and drew a picture of his family watching him get a shot. I've never seen a child so excited about surgery. Poor thing hasn't been able to breathe through his nose in over a year, and it didn't hurt that he was promised all the ice cream and popsicles he could eat. Anyway they were all so cute and proud of themselves for their hard work.
After tagging our tree we set the boys loose to play. They had fun climbing and sliding on the hay bales, playing in the corn, riding the horsy-go-round, riding the caterpillar caboose , and just wreaking havoc in general. If you live near Start, LA, I highly recommend this place to buy your Christmas tree. They will even mount it on a stand and tie it on top of your car which will save the Christmas tree another good cussing. Minus the buzzing sound for the hour drive home, it was by far one of the most pleasurable Christmas tree experiences we've had yet!

If you're in need of a good laugh please watch Dougie in My Snuggie. This really makes me proud as an LSU alumnus. Oh to have been on campus and run into Dougie in his Snuggie would have been the highlight of my years at LSU. This is truly a classic that should be played before every home game! In honor of Dougie in His Snuggie, everyone in the Guthrie family will be receiving LSU snuggies for Christmas.
Last but not least... I am so proud of the Tigers for beating Alabama! I almost forgive you for not beating Auburn. This song is for you Les Miles!
