Samuel has been the sickest. We all got sick, but he had the knock-out, drag-out, can I just please die, but not die, 104.3 down to 101 with Tylenol, throw up, I can't walk flu.
Right before Christmas.
Not that he did that on purpose. Or he likes being sick, or he thought it might be funny.
It just happened that way.
And so we all were in the process of getting better and now we (okay it is only me, but I feel better thinking I am not the only one) are in panic mode.
I mean PANIC MODE.
Because I lost 10+ days of shopping. Not that I am complaining taking care of the family. But it is CHRISTMAS season.
Elly's first Christmas. I will post pictures soon. She thinks it is a wonderful idea! And she probably thinks China should get into the action, too. She loves church and when she is pensive and you ask her what she is thinking about she will usually say "Jesus."
I love that.
I don't know just how much she gets, but I know how much she receives.
I made John take her out the other night to show her the lights in the neighborhood. Poor kid, she got stuck being stuck as she was the only one not sick.
Okay, so now that I just announce we are in panic mode, I should get some school work done, then go out and try to settle that down a little.
But I leave you with this picture and this song.
This is us being SO HAPPY that we were in China last year. FINALLY!!! We left New Years Eve, celebrated midnight in the North Pole, and were in Beijing New Years Day.
2 Days from getting our baby girl.
This song made me cry ALL THE TIME last year.
It is Christmas time as she is home.
She is home!!!
Now this song still makes me cry, and pray for those waiting for their babies.
I have those families in my heart today. Waiting...
As we are waiting. Again.
