Finally Friday!

First and Foremost ~~~~

Happy 1st Birthday Sweet Sydney!

We pray every day that someday you will find a forever home!

This is one of her latest November update photos!

It's Finally Friday! Ok, so I must admit......the week has gone by very quickly!!! However, in some aspects have seem to draaaagggg on! It has been an interesting week to say the least. It seems like now that Christmas season has begun, everything seems to be going in fast forward! I have a lot of blogging "catch up" to do!!

Madisyn arrived home on Sunday safe and sound! I went to the airport alone to pick her up (only 5 min away) and Chris stayed home with Lyza to fix we were headed to the in laws for the afternoon for family time and dessert. I am happy to announce I am going to be an AUNT AGAIN!! Yippee! Congrats to Brian, Christine and Lia.

Tuesday Lyza had her 2 year Dr. appt. She was 25.5 lbs and 33.5 inches long. She sung her ABC's for the Dr., counted to 10 in Spanish and English for her and answered just about every question she had.....then she proceeded to crawl in the Dr.'s lap to scribble on her chart!

Thursday morning I woke up to find Lyza in a bed a vomit (which was actually scary for me to find......). I gave her some apple juice and she had two bites of oatmeal which immediatly came back up also, then another round of juice came after the fourth time I called the dr. and put her on the nothing for two hours, introducing liquids only. She fell right to sleep for her nap....then again at bedtime. She was up at 5:30 this morning and seems to be doing well and is active so far. She had yogurt for breakfast and all seems well. So not sure what her little problem was! We'll see how the day goes!

I must be getting old. The highlight of December starting with Christmas shows has me in a divine ritual since Dec. 1!! Every night, 7 pm...everyone must have everything done and in their places to watch the Christmas movie of the night!!!!! It's been fun.......laying by the fire is one of my favorite and most relaxing things!

Well...I must get started on my I plan to get a lot done today!!!! Madisyn has her Christmas dance tonight, so I will post pic's tomorrow of that.

HAppy Birthday, Sydney! What a cutie! I have been praying for you and all the children of Guatemala.
Poor Lyza! There has been stuff like this going around. Hopefully it was just a 24 hour thing.
We too have been sitting down for the Christmas movies several nights this week. And it is a highlight at our house too! Enjoy Madisyn's dancing tonight. I am off now to Juliana's Christmas program at preschool right now.
