One Week Home And First Christmas Together

Sarah rolled and cut and decorated Christmas cookies.
Jaden was a great helper also!
Wearing most of the icing.

I woke up Christmas morning to this little and very excited voice
saying "Santa brought my tooter scooter and doll house I wanted!!!
"Sarah's bike too!
Oh, and just ignore the sheets on the sofa there IS a body under
them. When you are in your twenties you can sleep through anything!
The twins, our sweet daughter-in-law and Justin a friend of theirs
(adopted into the family minus all the paperwork & expense) ;)
spent the night at our house. The rest of the family and guests
arrived in the afternoon for Christmas dinner.

Yes! My girly girl is very into cars also!
We did get a couple of pics of Sarah in her pajamas. She was quite
shy and didn't really want them taken so I won't post them this year.
She never celebrated Christmas before and she doesn't know the
reason why we celebrate. I did tell her we were celebrating Jesus
birth. I know she didn't really understand. That is ok. I just pray
that she will see Jesus in me as we interact together.
She was trying to avoid the camera so most of the pics are of her
looking down. She seemed to like her gifts. She wouldn't get on her
bike at all. A little later we set it outside and when she thought no
one was paying any attention she got on and tried to ride. Chris her
big brother went out to help her. Then she realized others were
watching and wouldn't get back on. She is very shy.
She unwrapped her gifts one piece of tape at a time. :)
She liked her tea set!

Checking out her new cookbook.


  1. Sounds like you guys had an awesome Christmas. Hope the jet lag is over or getting better. Tell your family we said hi!
    Have a wonderful New Year!

  2. Kathy, I have been thinking of you all often -- especially your sweet Sarah. Can't wait to hear that she is riding that bike! Happy New Year! Love,

  3. She is so precious! Just precious! I hope she is doing well and adjusting to her new family. Looks like you all had a wonderful Christmas. Wishing you the best in 2010.
