Birthday present

Ingie opted to go to the hotel in Branson called Splash Country instead of a birthday party. The girls had fun I think. We stopped at Erin's the night before and had Christmas with her. Erin cooked a delicious dinner. We were the first people she has ever cooked a meal for. We feel very priveledged.

Ingrid and Sigrid had a Christmas program at preschool today. Sigie's shirt says "good things come in small packages". She wanted me to take a picture of her toes this morning.

Ingrid wanted her hair curled this morning for the program. She had trouble deciding on the red velvet bow or the red corduroy hat with a grosgain ribbon on it. Her jumper was green corduroy with stockings embroderied on the bottom. She was really proud of her looks today. Her class sang "Frosty the Snowman" and "Santa Claus is Coming to Town." Ingrid and her friend Abby Grace sang the loudest and tried to out do everyone. I must say they succeeded. Abby Grace also decided she could out do Ingrid by singing faster...this upset the teacher and Ingrid tried to get Abby to slow down by using hand gestures but Abby ingnored them. Ingrid didn't care that Abby could sing faster....Ingrid just wanted to sing it right.

All I Want For Christmas is My Two Front Teeth

Astrid lost two teeth last night. One she swallowed and the other she pulled. She was very upset about the one she swallowed. She was afraid she wouldn't get paid for it. She wrote the Tooth Fairy a nice note and the Tooth Fairy paid her for both teeth.

Our Tree!

While Siggy was asleep Astrid, Ingrid,
and I put up the tree.
When she awoke, she was so thrilled
that she took little running steps backward
and clapped her hands.
"Tree, tree, tree", she shouted.
She is going to love Christmas this year. Presents
thrill her but I think she likes the lights best.

Hannah Inc.

Hannah And Our Hope

I can see fright in the eyes of these two parents,
but always there is hope. Hannah is their hope. She
is ours, too. You will see Hannah improving because
she feels the "want" and "love" from her parents
and Lil Bub, Grandparents and all of us!
