Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone! We had a nice and peaceful Christmas....our first in England! Leah was sooooo excited that Santa came and left presents under the tree...he even ate the cookies we left for him (they were yummy!) Aine still had a lingering cold, and picked one heck of a morning to sleep in until 8. Every morning she's up at 630 or so....except Christmas (when Leah is anxiously waiting to go downstairs). It was so fun watching Leah get excited and hand out all the presents. I think she was a bit overwhelmed by the whole day: the new stuff, the late nap...everything. She told me later that she was "frustrated because Santa brought her so many presents". I wish I had recorded her saying that!

Marc and Rachel had us over for a wonderful dinner (and yummy snacks). It was so nice to share the holidays with friends and to have a traditional meal (that I didn't have to cook). They were even gracious enough to let us Skype with our family since we didn't (and still don't) have internet! Overall it was a really wonderful Christmas! We hope everyone else had a blessed day!

Happy Birthday to our Saviour, Jesus!

She HAD to dress up in her new Tinkerbell outfit. Since it was so cold, we made her put it on over her jammies. Then she wanted to wear one of her new headbands (obviously she insisted on putting it on). Apparently she hasn't looked yet in the mirror in her hands to see how she looks...
