THE BEST PRESENT was watching the girls opening a package wrapped and wrapped a thousand times to announce the gender of our next baby due in May 2010!!
***Afternoon of Snacks, Naps, Walks, Face Painting....
Homemade Pasta w/ shrimp, Homemade Polenta w/ sausage & roasted red pepper sauce, asparagus w/ parmesean, veggie meatballs, Ric's homemade bread, and a green salad with figs! Can we say DELICIOUS!!
***Evening spent watching a movie and relaxing..... Besides my feet hurting because I was standing up all day cooking, I have to say it was a blessed day.
SOPHIA was able to adapt at not being afraid of a little dog. She did really well with Auntie Suzy's Dog "Mollie"
Favorite Christmas Present: MP3 player and homemade matching Madame Alexander doll clothes.

LYDIA "Did I want this? I don't remember it being on my list?"
Lydia cries buckets of tears when she finds out that baby is going to be another girl. She had been praying for a baby brother.
Lydia sick with flu during Christmas Eve....
wanted to unwrap ALL the gifts and made many attempts to do so...
