I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! Ours was filled with so much food and family, how wonderful!! I unfortunately woke up sick on Christmas morning so I was unable to spend it with my family. I either had food poisioning or a really horrible flu. I am so glad to be done with that!! It lasted all day and then I was fine. Really weird. Thankfully I was feeling better on Christmas night and Bethany and I were raring to go for the after Christmas salesat Target, Patina & Gap. My 3 favorite stores. Ever. It was fun & I so enjoy the times we spend together! Thanks Beth :) I always spend too much money but always have tons of fun!!
I prayed many times for other moms who were missing their babies this Christmas holiday. It isnt easy seeing everyone with their children, in their adorable outfits wishing your child could be with them. I thought of miss Emma so much, how old she would have been, what outfit I would be dressing her in, how much fun it would be to see her opening her gifts at the family events and at our house Christmas morning. Everytime I had those thoughts, I prayed for God to get me through the night at least until I got home. If that was too much it would be until I got out the door. And honestly, some were just until I could sneak into the other room...and yes I did have to do that. But I made it through, with a smile on my face. I reminded myself that my sweet Emma was celebrating Christmas in Heaven, what an amazing time that was. She was with Jesus as they celebrated His birthday. She is one lucky girl uh??!!
I did enjoy seeing this sweet face this past week - I love my little Hopers so much and she is just so fun to be around!! Isnt she so stinkin cute?
Well this Vikings game is not fun. They better turn it around ASAP. Pathetic! Maybe I am bad luck so I am going to work on cleaning the "guest room". It has become a disaster zone and I started to tackle that yesterday morning. Josh's California family is coming and one of his cousin's is going to stay with us. I doubt he wants to sleep in mounds of Christmas bows and baby clothes.
Oh one more thing...Hey Bethany!!!...Want to go see New Moon again? I need to "check out" like we always say ;) Ha!
