Merry Christmas

Where do I begin?

Lincoln finally lost his first tooth, Ditka pulled it out and we video taped it, I'll upload it soon, cause its awesome!

We finally saw Santa, after a failed attempt at our local mall because they wanted $21 for a picture and we couldn't take our own...lame. McKinley did great, she chose to sit in her own chair and wouldn't look at him.

We had to move McKinley from her crib to the toddler bed because the bursitis in my left shoulder is not getting better. She is doing great and loves her bed, she says bed is at Nana's house, I a big girl. My Mom wants to have the crib for when my brother visits with baby Zoe :)

I start PT after Christmas, the steroid shots help a lot but only for a few months. I had an ultrasound and I don't have any tears so that is great. I can't lift McKinley above my head and its difficult to pour milk with my left hand. Tim and I even changed sides of the bed in hopes it would help, that's love people!

I want to also say that I'm determined to do 26 acts of kindness to honor the 26 people that were killed on Dec 14th, 2012. Tears still come to my eyes when I start to think about all those 1st graders. One of the little girls, Charlotte shares the same exact birthday as our precious Lincoln. I do know that God will turn the pain, heartache, sorrow, and sadness into good, if we allow Him.

Merry Christmas!

Our really good friends Alex & Mia are adopting from China. I call their soon to be baby/child baby "Fu", I haven't told them that yet but I guess they will know now (I think its adorable).
They explain on their blog that Fu means blessing in Mandarin.
Can you help them spread the word about their adoption? Here is a link to their blog Unto Adoption.

Please consider supporting their adoption by purchasing an adoption t-shirt.

Will you join me in sharing their story, and most of all please pray for them as they begin this journey to adopt a blessing.

Ephesians 1:5
"...he predstined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will--"

Not all are called to adopt, and those that aren't can pray, support and encourage these wonderful families.
