Woof woof! Merry Christmas! Mom has been busy so I thought I would write the Christmas letter this year. I am the newest member of the Lawless family. I am Stuie, Jasmine's peanut detector service dog. I am trained to sniff out eleven of my girl's allergerins. I sit and point to tell my girl what is safe and what isn't.
Dad had surgery on his shoulder before I came here. Mom says he was off work for six months. All I know is it was fun with dad at home all day. Dad spent a lot of time in the garage rebuilding a cabinet. Mom has pictures of Dad working in the garage with his sling.
My boy and girl are seniors this year! I will go to college with my girl next year. I go everywhere with my girl. Both my girl and boy have different options for next year. They will figure it all out next month. My girl keeps busy writing for two newspapers, working with her jewerly business and school. My boy is always on his computer. That kid is a whiz!
My new family and I have been busy! We have had tv interviews, newpaper interviews....... it is a lot for my girl to take in. She still gets nervous around people. I am working with her to show her that with me, she is safe.
Mom has been busy keeping up with everyone. She started a family blog last winter. She is playing with digital scrapbooking programs. You should see the kids' senior pictures!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
May God hold you in the palm of His hand, until we met again.....

Jasmine had another checkup this week for her breathing issues. Poor girl, lots of poking. I hate IVs and Jasmine gets a hour long IV each trip. They help and that is what matters. We see the lung doctor on Jan 2. Now that the lung fuction test results are back we know what the problem is. Not asthma like we thought but trapped air in the lungs. Our NP doctor has been to DAAN conferences, she requested Jasmine and I read one book. Good thing I aced pathogoly and A&P in college! This book is written for doctors by a doctor. Gets a little deep at times. This is the same program Jenny McCarthy is using on her son who is austic. The program covers, autisum, allergies, asthma and ADHD. Some of my college books have interesting information on chakras, we are reading that. I am also signing up to take Level 1 Reiki classes after Christmas. Until then Christmas is comming!!! I need to get ready!
