Even though Emily had asked for nothing, Santa brought Emily a scooter and a special music box with a letter inside from Santa! He let her know how proud he was of her for being such a giving person and not wanting anything for herself, and that he wanted to give something to her anyway. She immediately started dancing and twirling. It was darling.
Joe thanks Emily for her gift - rocket balloons!
Emily was excited about everyone receiving their gifts from her.
Christmas Day brought SMILES:
Alyssa "chillaxing" in the doll's cradle
Christmas Day brought PUZZLES:
Emily and Chipper on Christmas Day in one of their usual nap spots
The other nap spot - Chipper's pillow
Christmas Day brought FAMILY ACTIVITIES:
Caitlin had sent us something to do as family. There were Argentine treats, each with a picture of her and a scripture on the back, addressed to one of us. We took turns looking up the scripture that was for ourself, and read it out loud. It was really neat because the scripture and picture related to us individually. A lot of thought and work went into it. Anyway, it was fun to do this together - THANK YOU, CAITLIN!
Another Christmas has come and gone - it was small in quantity of goods, but big with traditions, music, love, family, and remembrance of Christ, which truly are the most important.
