Thankful Sunday

We just walked in the door from our DSSRI Christmas Party. It was wonderful!!  Emmie had a great time, all the kids did. There was an overload of cuteness everywhere. Today I am so thankful  to be able to share the joy of Ds with others who are as blessed as I am. And know it!!

 We got there early so Em "helped" decorate the tree. Yup, she stole a little decoration. 

The Toe Jam Band was awesome!

Of course Santa and Mrs. Clause were there.

And this is so funny. Santa and Em had this private conversation going on. I think he was letting her in on all his secrets. She was entranced. If I didn't pick her up from Mrs. Clause I think they would still be looking at each other. It was a very special moment for both Em and Santa.

 After that conversation with Santa, Em was all done. I never saw her fall asleep so fast.

AND, I'm thankful to say...

We got our tree!

And someone was caught red handed rearranging the lights. 

I'm thankful for the goodies I got to take home from the party, as it saves me from cooking tonight. 

And I'm so thankful for this break from the everyday running around. Next break Christmas! Can't wait. 

 Enjoy the rest of you Sunday!!
 And please keep Miss Olga and the others from RR  in your prayers.

Looks like a fabulous day! LOVE the Em & Santa pic (& of course her fast asleep) so sweet.
We are bummed that we have to miss Alayna's school Christmas program this week and the DSG Christmas party next weekend. Oh well always next year!

Oh, this brings back memories. The first few years we had a tree up we couldn't even put decorations on it. Then we had to leave off glass ornaments because the Organizer kept taking them off, piling them up, and redecorating. We finally decided, Why not? So we just let him fix it like he wanted it (with soft ornaments). We finally came to terms: He'd leave the lights alone, but he could rearrange all the rest any way he wanted. Kept him out of the frig. He took everything out of it while I was on the phone one day. Never a dull moment!

Glad you had supper fixed for you! Take it easy, Liz

a lot of young children tend to br frightened of Santa, it's lovely to see your little one in awe of him. She is certainly a cutie...

Looks like everyone had fun...I love how Emmie is checking out the Christmas lights...that's the greatest part about the tree for kids, pulling the lights off, I really don't know how I'll manage a tree this year, it'll probably be pulled down before Christmas, yep something to start worrying about I guess. Love the pictures and awww that one of Emmie fast asleep, Santa really wore her out I guess!!
