this weekend we had a wonderful time with brady’s family, they came up from amarillo and we had a little christmas party at our house. the girls had been counting down the hours, and they were ecstatic to spend the day with “all their families”.
yesterday we received quite a surprising blessing. we got a check from brady’s old job, which we weren’t expecting until a few years from now. i’m always amazed at how the universe works itself out and relieved that we have a few less worries this holiday season.
the girls have been worried about santa being able to get into the house on christmas, since we don’t have a chimney. they’ve planned to put our cookies and milk on a bench right next to the door and leave the door unlocked so he will know it’s okay to come in. i love how their little brains work!
theodore is so very big! sunday morning he pushed himself up to sitting from his hands and knees. he’s learned the sign for milk, so his little hands are busy asking to nurse most of the time now.
we are doing so well, and i’m feeling very rich and full of love right now. what a beautiful gift my life is!
