Christmas Day

This year was so fun with Emma opening presents and getting all excited about Christmas.

I think the "Reindeer Droppings" were more for David and I than Emma...we thought it was pretty funny.

Emma loved her baby doll from Grandma Kristi

Maggie's big present was her walker and she got a glow worm

I got a bunch of great decorations for our apartment from Kristi

David got some boots from his dad

Emma got a horse from Papa.

That evening we went to Julie's apartment for dinner with our team and couple from France. This is Chris our team leader

Shannon, Chris's wife and their friend from France. Shannon's expecting a boy in May. They are calling this their miracle child. They had a less then 1% chance of ever getting pregnant and after they adopted Emeline, 4 months later she was pregnant. We are so excited for them.
