Merry Christmas!

We had a wonderful Christmas Eve service with our church family and Matt's parents who are visiting.  We had a wonderful present opening experience.  The girls have spent the day building Lego Hogwarts Castle, and I have to say that I am amazed at how well they are doing.  The Panda has spent most of the day sleeping because he is sick.  Congestion, and I think, ear pain.  Glad that the tubes are going in with the cleft surgery.

He LOVED the ride on/ push behind car that his grandparents gave him.  He presses his head against it (and everything including my face that makes noise), because this helps him hear better.  The Puppy LOVED the Nerf gun from the grandparents and the Nerf weaponry from us.   I am really enjoying a few days of just letting people be.  It is nice not to have to make them do school, make them do chores, make them go to bed...  (not that we have have much luck with make them go to bed...)  Sadly, we have 50% sneezy, congested people here, so we didn't get to go caroling with our church this afternoon, but no one wants to be infected, I'm sure...

The Panda is getting up on his knees and stretching more, especially to reach things.  Yesterday, he even put one foot up, like he was going to try to stand up.

Of course, the Lord has given us the best Christmas present ever- adoption. He sent his Son so that we could be adopted into His family, and this year He gave us a dear son.

John 1:14
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
