Snowed In /Thankful Sunday





Finally some real New England weather! We are completely snowed in! Bella wanted a white Christmas and now she's got it! Just glad it did this now and not Tuesday when Aniela is coming home. Now we are praying for one more storm to come when she is leaving us! it would be a shame if she had to spend an extra day or two, hehe.

Today I'm thankful for this storm because now we get to finish the stinkin' room switch!!!!
I can't have two girls sleeping on the living room floor when Santa comes!

I am thankful for good friends who make tough times easier!

I am so thankful for all of you. I know I've said it before but you all have become like family. I'm loving all the cards. Every time I get one in the mail it just confirms that you really do exists.
I sound like that commercial when the M&M meets Santa and they both say "he does exists" and faint.

And I am thankful for a slower and more simple Christmas.

And one more huge announcement! Not to be out done by her sisters performance in the Nutcracker , Emilia Faith has been putting on her own show!


Ta DAAAAA no leaning and no hands! She just picked herself up the other day and decided to stand.

*please ignore the mess in my house and the bed head Emmie is sporting.

Love that snow . . . . . and Miss Em is fantastic! Standing by herself -- and pretty early, too, at that!!! The attention you've all given her is so important.

Love, Liz

Miss Emilia....now you are making Ella look bad!! You are younger than her yet you are free standing and she isn't!! But she is getting close. I can't wait until you guys get to meet someday and you can stand up and hold hands. WAY TO GO EMMIE!! The snow looks absolutely delightful!! By the way, my cards are going in the mail tomorrow so hopefully you will be getting another one before Christmas.

Beverly said...

WOW! Now that is a lot of snow! Good job Emmie on the standing! Justin isn't even close... but he loves to stand against things! Happy Holidays!

Tina said...

WOOOOOOW!!!! Can't believe it she is really going great guns! I love the bed hair, so don't apologise. I have so much catching up to do , I have been missing the last few days as you can see, but good to be back. Your little angel is such a darling, and yes she definately decided not to be left behind in the performance department! Merry Christmas to all of you.

Oh my heart! Emilia Faith is scrumptious!!! I love your new header on your blog, too!!!

Ah, the snow! The snow! It is beautiful, isn't it? For a little while anyway until life needs to get up and trudging through it!

We send lots of Merry Christmas wishes your way!

Learning to stand is HUGE!! Not being able to do that really stood in the way of John walking. Once he figured out he could stand up by himself, he also realized he could walk, and off he went. Watch out world here comes Emmie!!

Hey, email me your address so I can send you a card! jubsmom@gmail.com

She is so stinking cute!!! I love the pic of her under the Christmas Tree. I am sooo jealous of the snow!!! I remember moving to D.C. the winter of I think 1995. The day after I got there they had a HUGE snow storm that closed down schools and business's. It was so crazy but so much fun!!!! Have a Very Merry Christmas!!!!

Kele said...

Who would notice the mess or bed head when we can stare at this latest act!!!!! WAY TO GO EM, WAY TO GO!!!
I am a bit jealous of the snow, just completes the Christmas feeling!! LOVE LOVE LOVE the holiday header with Em, absolutely precious!
