Christmas eve at Nan's is always fun... We always have a fabulous spread of food including the famous red velvet cake. Everyone has a stocking with their name on it & they always get stuffed plum full of goodies. Michael & I found some fake lotto tickets & decided to play a funny on some family members this year & it worked. It made for a very fun & funny night!!!!

I found this angel right after we made the decision to adopt. It says " however motherhood comes to you it's a miracle". Talk about getting a sign from the big man. I keep it in my kitchen window so I can read it every day. When getting out the decorations for Christmas I came across this HOPE ornament & thought the two belonged together. I know the good Lord will bless us with a beautiful baby, I HOPE sooner then later, but he knows his plans for us, so this Christmas & everyday I just pray that God will protect our baby till he or she comes home to us.

We had our second girls night Christmas party at my house,
( i think it's officially an annual party now).
We had fabulous food (thanks to Allie), wine, champagne punch
& our always fun gift exchange. We did a Christmas theme this year...
We did the traditional exchange where everyone puts their gift in the pile & you pick a number, you can steal up to 3 times & number 1 gets to pick last as well.
I picked # 1..... Whooo Hoooo!!!!
