Annie 356/365

Lucy 356/365

Today I am thankful for how excited my mom gets about Christmas and how it has rubbed off on me and my sisters. We got here today and as always, every square inch of her house is decorated. There are hundreds of presents covering the floor and pool table around the tree. It just makes me so happy to be here at Christmas and I really can't imagine it any other way. Some day I am sure the girls will want to stay home for Christmas, but until that day, we will be here on Christmas morning. Lee Lee already has had all kinds of fun things for the girls to do since we got here. She got a new toy train that toots around the dining room table. We helped stuff stockings and have been busy playing with the Fisher Price nativity set.

I am bummed because both girls seem to be getting sick again. Annie's nose is back to a faucet and she can't breathe at all. It is pitiful. I hope that by Christmas they are feeling okay. Poor girls.

I can't believe that Christmas is only a few short days away. That is crazy.

Annie looks so old in that picture! What a dumpling. I am so glad you're home for Christmas too...are Holly and the boys coming in? Hope those girls get to feeling better soon.

I hope the girls feel better soon. I've been hoping since all of my kids have recently been sick that the germs stay away until after Christmas. I'd love to see the decorations and tree/presents there. Sounds awesome!

Annie looks so "mature" in her photo today. For some reason, she looks more like a kid than a baby in that shot. So cute.

Sounds like LeeLee's house is the place to be! I'm coming<--with or without an invitation!

Will you put up a picture of all the presents downstairs? And then give a count of who has how many....

Mom said...

One can never have too much Christmas! And Seashy, no counting or shaking allowed! Can't wait till the rest of you chicks are home safely. The weather is to be very rainy and stormy.

Yes, the pics are awesome today. I believe that credit goes to Dada for the pic of Miss Anners!

Love and kisses to all, LeeLee
