Two Years Ago on Christmas Eve.......

....God blessed us with a daughter.

I have said this before, but we didn't get many pictures that day so we were very excited when Ashley (another mom in our travel group, Thank you again Ashley!) attached this to an e-mail she sent earlier in the year. Eden had just been placed in my arms seconds earlier. We are so thankful that this picture, along with the next one were sent to us from members of our China family.
Back in the hotel room with our Sleeping Beauty.

Eden, we will love you forever and always! " From my heart, all the way to heaven and back down into your little heart. Forever and Always!"
Thank you Lord for this precious gift and blessing!

December 15, 2008

What a Big girl we have! She said she was going to sit on Santa's lap, give him a hug and her art project and boy did she ever, she ran to him!!!! Talking about excited!!!! We all were excited. Eddie and I were so very proud of our girl. Eden even got to see............................. FROSTY before going in to see Santa. When she seen Frosty she squealed!

We also fed the animals before leaving.

Holiday Fun

December 12, 2008

Eden is watching Frosty the Snowman for the first time (in the picture below) and LOVES it. We have since watched it over and over and over again. We have also watched Rudolph and Santa Claus is coming to Town, but Frosty is her favorite.

December 13, 2008

Finishing up her "art project" to give to Santa. She is saying she will talk to Santa all by herself and of course sit on his lap and give him a hug too. We will see on the 15Th what happens.

Since she didn't have a picture of Handy Manny and his tools to glue onto her Santa project, she decided (on her own) to draw and color them on.

December 14, 2008

Decorating our gingerbread house. She enjoyed this project also.

All finished!!
