This week I’ve been reflecting back on 2008…what was I doing on THIS day last year? On Thanksgiving I thought about last year and how we were anxiously awaiting our court date the following day. It seemed to overshadow all of Thanksgiving.
The kids were singing a song for their school Christmas program and I remember how at last year’s program I cried watching them because my other 2 kids weren’t up on that stage.
The girls Christmas dresses are hanging in their closet. Stacey and I found them after Christmas 2007 on clearance…the cutest black and red plaid velvet and taffeta dresses. We bought one for Natalie and one for Beza. Not quite matching, but coordinating. Natalie wore hers last year but Beza’s just hung in the closet. This year they will both get to wear them!
We put up the Christmas tree and decorations this weekend. Wen & Beza saw the tree still up when we came home last year but it was fun for them to help decorate it. Natalie had a great time explaining all our holiday traditions to Beza.
It’s going to be a wonderful holiday season this year with the WHOLE family!
