In case you haven't noticed, there is an additional child in our family photo. I would like you all to meet the newest member of our family. She is the pretty little 7 year old in the purple dress. "Eloise" now has a little sister. We have decided to call her, "Amelia Bedelia".

A December To Remember....

Eloise had two chorus concerts and played the violin at our church's talent show.

I always enjoy the challenge of turning little bits of ribbon and trinkets into a Christmas treasure.

This month was mostly fun, but Eloise did have to get a little dental work done which made her face a little droopy for a while. Carmen didn't want her to be alone so she made her face droopy too. After that they tried to smile....It didn't work so well for Eloise.

We made Rudolph sandwiches for Eloise's Sunday School class.

We found out what happens when you leave junk food out on the counter.....

....strange things happen....

....and you get MICE!!!!!....

(Christmas treats we made for family.)

The only things better than all the tasty treats were the smiles on every one's faces.

My Sissy, Wu Wu, and Ting Ting.

Eloise got a horse and cowgirl outfit for her doll and lots of books.

Hubby received some new boots, a belt, this book, & a pen with Eloise's picture in it.

Hubby and Eloise bought me a sewing machine and a few extras (i.e. bobbins, pins, etc..) to replace the ones I lost in the storm.

***Note: we received bunches of other greatly appreciated stuff from Gran, Grandpa, Maw Maw, Paw Paw, other relatives, and friends. The items above are simply what My husband daughter, and I got for each other.

This truly was a wonderful Christmas season for us.

We trust that yours was a delight as well.

We pray that the Lord will be with all of you and your families in the coming New Year.

SEE YOU IN 2009!
