We had such a fantastic year. Can not wait to see what 2010 has in store.

So we try and find those moments where we can say that this IS what Christmas means. Here are a few of mine this year:
My Saint-in-Law decided to adopt two group homes that house 14 children in them. She dreamed up a glorious Christmas morning for them and went out and recruited friends, families, churches, teachers, and neighbors to make it happen. Then she invited everyone over to her house to wrap (Check out these amazing ladies below!). She fed these people, entertained their kids, and give the husbands beer and a football game in exchange for help.
We didn't deserve it - Your are amazing Sister!!
Then there are these crazy people called MOMS that live in a city near you. They wipe snot and listen to kids cry. They change diapers and read. They give baths and rub backs. They also coordinate sing-a-longs at Senior Centers and bring - wait for it - homemade SUGAR FREE cookies for the audience! They are the Christmas Givers.

I am hoping to try and keep up with posting as Christmas is getting closer. We still have the tree to get and decorate, a special day planned with me and Audrey to see a play, and also the Nutcracker Ballet. That is just this weekend. The plans are made all the way out through New Years and that feels good!
All our love ~

It was hanging by a thread but it still took 3 hours for permission to even get my hand close to her lips! I was finally granted access and joy quickly traded fear. How much did you get from the tooth fairy? Audrey had it spent before the Daddy fairy could make it to the ATM!
Is it wrong to be jealous? To have a fun little hole in your mouth you can play with all day and take your mind off of what other tasks you are supposed to be doing? How about starting to cook dinner then stopping mid-stir just to twirl your tongue in a little groove in your mouth...
