We had a great holiday season. The girls loved having their own menorah to light and Jo learned the dreidel song really quickly. The IL's came into town for Chrismakah and we had alot of fun. We even had J&C babysit one night and went out for adult drinks and dinner. Ahhhh real tablecloths and drinks in pretty glasses.
The girls were, of course, inundated with toys, clothes and books. This is one of the reasons I feel like we should continue to adopt and foster. The need is there and the resources are here. Cindy did a great post on "the need & the calling" here and it's been replaying over and over in my mind. New year's project is now redoing the basement to add some more unused space but more importantly....get the office/spare room turned into another bedroom for my future son/s.
