Tired and Happy!

Got through our first Christmas together successfully. Boy, is our kiddo going to be spoiled. It looked like Christmas threw up in our living room.  She was thrilled with the array of gifts. 

We're told that Christmas is normally trauma time for her, as we were with Thanksgiving for our visit. We didn't have a fall out for either one.

Either therapy really has done a great job for her or we have serious honeymooning. Either way, loving having our beautiful kiddo here.

I'm so fuzzy on what our life was before her.

She's definitely a prayer answered and a dream come true.

We've had a full holiday season thus far. During her last visit before moving in, we took her to see The Nutcracker. She loved it and wants to make this a holiday tradition.
Second row seats!!!

She's seen Santa 3 times with us already, once at the mall, once at the racetrack when we did Toys for Tots and once when we went to breakfast at a local school.  The racetrack visit is also a family tradition. Take at least $20 or equivalent in toys and the toys go to needy kids and you get to ride your personal car around the racetrack. Afterwards we went to the infield and got hotdogs for lunch and Santa was there. 

She moved in and then we received a gift for the family of 3 tickets to Disney on Ice. Also GREAT seats. 2nd riser, front row. 
Apparently visiting Santa 3 times paid off. Santa visited here twice. Gifts were sent to her former city and again here, she ended up with twice the Santa gifts a normal SPOILED child would get.  In addition to our craziness!!

So, very busy, very crazy and yet, we've gotten lots of family, quality time in at home, just watching movies, playing cards or Wii. 

Dreading her going back to school.  I'm on leave and loving this time at home with our new kid. 

yep, prayers answered!!
