Well Christmas is only 11 days away and everything is starting to come together. The festivites will be at our house this year. Nancy and her family,Jason and Dee, Anne and Brianna, Doreen and Faith and Mia will be coming over to celebrate. It will be nice to get everyone together. I wish the family visits were more frequent but I know everyone is very busy with life.
We are happy to hear that Dee is feeling better as she just had her gall bladder out. Glad to hear you are doing well Dee.
I am happy to report that I am almost done shopping and I can feel the stress level starting to drop. I finish up with work on Thursday and then I am off until Jan 2. The kids are off until Jan 7th or 8th I beleive and so is James. So lucky they have those extra days.
We are all looking forward to our visit to Upper Canada Village next week..check out their site.it looks amazing http://www.uppercanadavillage.com/night.htm
I can't beleive it is almost here already. It is indeed one of my favorite holidays of the year.
We had my Christmas party for my friends and families that I have met through Formons Une Famille. They are a wonderful bunch of people and over the years we have created a wonderful connection for ourselves as well as our kids. We had music,games, Santa came to visit, craft making and many door prizes. That party is indeed one of my favorites as we all come together and enjoy the afternoon together. To see all the angels who have joined their families this year is just a wonderful thing. To see all the kids so happy, growing and turning into toddlers and heading to the teen age years is something I have been blessed to be a part of. It gives me a lump in my throat to stand there and see them all.
So this coming week everyone has their little parties at daycare and school, work wraps up and then we count down til the big day. We open our gifts normally Christmas morning. Presley has really gotten into the holidays and loves Santa. She loves singing Santa Claus is coming to town and has no idea what is going to happen Christmas day...it will be a zoo...but that is what Christmas is all about. FAMILY.
To all our friends and our families who read our blog...we would like to wish you all a wonderful and safe Christmas and may 2008 be filled with health, peace and lots of love and laughter.
May 2008 bring more children home to their families who are waiting ever so patiently. Every child deserves to have love and a family to call their own.
We send our love to you all. Happy Holidays!!!
Karen, James, Kennedy, Madison, Colby, Jagger, Jaden, Presley, Piper & Bailey.
