|Please Oh Please?|
Life here continues on as normal (as we get).
The kids are excited for Christmas. Although I am not sure if Alayna will make it to Christmas as she keeps pulling ornaments off the tree as fast as I can put them back up. She was so great with them the past couple years and left them alone now she is doing it out of pure naughtiness. She looks, runs, pulls and smiles all while throwing them. STINKER! Thankfully she hasn't reached any of my glass ones so she hasn't broken any.
Aidan has played a couple piano gigs this past week with his piano teacher. One at the Metro Lutheran Ministries Christmas store. People in need can come "shop" this store for Christmas presents for their kids for free. Then last night they played at a retirement home close to our house. It is so nice to see him use his God given talents to brighten someones day.
Jason is of course working later and later so the kids and I am missing spending time with him. Thankful when Christmas Eve gets here at the close of the day his long days are finished. So be nice to your UPS man/woman as they are working hard to get your packages delivered and probably missing their family too. ;)
The girls continue to make me laugh and entertain each other well. One morning I sat back and watched them play for nearly an hour and a half without any input from me. It was truly an amazing thing. Alayna used to wait for me to pick a toy out of the toy box before she would play with one. Since Dariya has come home they have both blossomed so much and the love they have for each other is easily evident.
Hope all is well in your world. If you are still looking for that perfect Christmas gift...give the gift of life to an orphan pick any orphan on the Reece's Rainbow Angel Tree and help them find their family. I can't imagine our lives without Dariya and we would have never been able to bring her home if it wasn't for all the donations that helped us reach our goal.
