Happy Holidays from our Family to Yours!

Well time to update the site....November was Kennedy's 14th b-day ...can't beleive it. My baby girl is 14 already. God I am getting so old. Kennedy wanted to see New Moon so off we went to drool I mean watch Robert Pattison and Taylor Lautner. These boys are too cute...and of course with every shot of no shirt on in the movie the girls hooted and hollered. Was too funny...

The house is decorated and we are almost ready for Christmas. Outside and inside it is very pretty. The kids are getting excited and I can't beleive that in 18 days The big man in red will be making his appearance once again.

December is filled with parties and get togethers with friends and I do enjoy that part of the holidays and this time very much. My sister Nancy will be holding the 25th dinner celebrations this year. I will be having Christmas Eve at our place.
I think a round of family BINGO will be in order as well as loads of hot chocolate and lots of little goodies.

The new year looks like it will be starting off on the right foot as I have a new job. I will be working for a company called Raymark. The job is something that I have not done before but I really look forward to the new challenge.

The kids went skating this past weekend with Santa and they had a blast. James indicated he was going to try and make this an activity that they do every weekend if we can.

This weekend I host my 5th Christmas Party for the families and kids that I have come to know over the many years. I volunteer my time helping families through their adoption journey and it is something that is near and dear to my heart. This Sunday we will once again come together(about 120 people) to celebrate the holidays. I love to see all the kids..they all hold a special place in my heart. Good times.

My friends Dan and Doris will be heading for China tomorrow to begin their journey to their daughter Daphne who is waiting for them in Jiangxi, China. It does my heart good knowing that they will be holding their little one in their arms when we are having fun at the party this coming Sunday. To them I wish them a wonderful trip and may everything go smoothly.

To our friends and family who follow our blog...we thank you for following along and hope to see you over the holidays.

May this holiday season bring good health, lots of love, laughter and good times.

As 2009 rings out...we hope 2010 will be a spectacular year!!!

Hugs from our family to yours!

Karen & James, Kennedy, Madison, Jagger, Colby, Jaden and Presley, Bailey, Piper, Jynx and Esme.

What a great update! I can feel the excitement that this special time of year brings. Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday. You are incredible and a wonderful support during the adoption process. You will always be such a special part of our girls stories.

Thank you and Happy Holidays to you!
