Yesterday we had Christmas with my mom’s side of the family. My battery died so very few pictures.

We keep Christmas very simple at our house. Chinese carry out on my Great Grandmothers china. The girls get stockings from mommy and daddy. We gave the girls a puppy in May for their birthday and Christmas presents. He is almost 9 months and weighs 70 pounds!! They each had one gift to open from grandma Kathy and Big Pap.

Yes, even Remi got a stocking full of goodies. Funny thing was that he was quite interested!

Our energetic blessings with their calm Christmas present….So fun taking their picture!


EVALENA opening her stocking



E dumped her stocking out while F took one thing out at a time and sat each item carefully around her. So                                                                fun when their personalities shine through!

The partnership at Sarena’s orphanage (ICC) celebrated Christmas with the children. This is our first Christmas as a family. S loved her stocking. “This is the most presents I have ever had” Thank you God for giving us this gift! Proof that His way is so much more perfect than ours.

This morning I woke up to the sound of D reading out loud all by herself!!! PTL!! For those of you who don’t know D, she has had to overcome many speech and learning disabilities in order to read. This is an answer to prayer!!

Silly girls!
