Dear friends and family,
Some days you are the bug and some days you are the windshield. Today was a very difficult day for me and for our family. We were invited to New Market, AL for a Happy Birthday Jesus party. There were three other families with adopted Guatemalan children and Ian, Atlee and Brody were well received. Brody cried the whole way there, ate everything in sight once we got there, and cried all the way home. It was so hard for all of us and for Ian and Atlee who have to tune it out. Not fair for anyone, yet nothing to do about it. A friend had given us a VCR player for the van and it died on the way up. With Brody and his licking things, they don't usually last long for us. Without a movie in the car, he just fell apart today.
We are at home now and he has finished a bowl of soup(which makes everything better) and is watching TV. Bubba is cooking spaghetti and I am doing laundry. With three small children there is always something to do.
We were very blessed this weekend as Katie and Brent Turner hosted a Christmas open house in Brody's honor and we were delighted. Everyone brought soup, diapers, wipes and Gatorade. We had so much fun at her house and the kids had a ball with her children. They set Brody up with a TV of his own and Atlee enjoyed the cookies. Ian terrorized the LEGO city and wanted some of his own. Whew!
We have had the adventures this weekend. Please keep us in your prayers as we go to the doctor tomorrow with Ian for a wart removal and Millo is not out of the woods.
God bless and Merry Christmas.
