SURPRISING FUN CHRISTMAS...

Christmas was amazing this year as it is every year. Norwegian Christmas Eve at my parents house and an American Christmas Day at my brothers..... Still a magical time with yummmmmo food, family and decoration. This year we had a shockingly wonderful surprise... the unplanned drop-in Christmas visit from my sister, Kelly and family all the way from Tampa Florida..... Oh how priceless was the look on my father's face as he opened the door AND fell against the wall. There was not a face that did not have tears streaming. We are a sentimental and emotional family.... both the males and females. Oh man, I love this about my family!

The family is all sledding in the fresh snow in the mountains right now. I am dealing with the stomach flu.

My heart is all a flutter reading on RQ that rumors for referrals will go thru Feb 28 2006. If this is true, there will be only 6 more days to get thru before they hit my LID day of March 7 2006. I am thinking March just might be my month!???!!!!

Merry Christmas!

We have been doing similar things. The sledding and unfortunately the stomach flu is here too. CC mostly. The good thing is she is amazing at making it to the bathroom or a bucket!

I'm glad Kelly could make the trip it's fun to be all together as a family. I always feel an empty spot when someone is missing.

Don't know - I am thinking it might even be February for your referral

March is so close! And, apparently we are also having problems with the stomach flu here in PA.

But, we are counting down the days till we visit.

We should do something to celebrate Chinese New Year on the 26th while we are in town. Do you guys do anything for Chinese New Year?

What a wonderful surprise for your family!! There is nothing like the blessed surprise of family arriving for Christmas! We still talk of the Christmas my aunt, uncle and kids did this for us 25 years ago...and they only had to drive 4 hours. What a treat that you family came all the way from Tampa!!

You are so very, VERY close friend! Within months you'll be receiving Tate's referral!!! Ooo...dare we hope and pray for February?

Love you sweets. Not long now!!!

It was really suprising with the 28th now, and I'm hoping for more days in the cut offs through out 2009, I hope to become Mom too in 2009.
