Merry Christmas to all!! We love you and appreciate you!
I was told to post something that doesn't make people cry. So, here goes.
Friday night, we held a birthday party in honor of Jesus. Macey, Kendyll, and Trinity came to celebrate with us! Here are some pics of that fun time:
Saturday, we met Pappy, Gammy, Lacey, Chris, and Aunt Sharon at Guadalajara for lunch. Kari noticed somebody sitting at the table over from us drinking a "strawberry drink" and obviously wanted one. Aunt Sharon ordered Kari a strawberry daiquiri, virgin of course, and they thoroughly enjoyed it. I haven't decided if that's a good thing or not?!
After lunch, we headed to the church for a Christmas Eve service. After our service we all went to the street corner to sing Christmas carols. People enjoyed it!! They honked, they waved, they opened their windows. I hope it becomes a tradition. It was so special!
Last night we made cookies and played with a few toys the kids opened. The kids and I snuggled on the couch, drank hot chocolate out of their new Mickey and Minnie mugs and enjoyed the warmth of the fireplace and the lights on the tree.
Of course this morning...CHRISTMAS! The kids were so excited to see their gifts and I'm telling you, this is one of the "funnest" things about parenting! Love it!! We enjoyed bacon and heart, star, and circle shaped pancakes for breakfast. Now off to play and enjoy the day!
I started this blog to document the story of my kids as they grow up. However...July 8, 2011 changed that slightly when Kari was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) . We invite you to share our journey as we walk through it with the Lord's help!
