Journey to Lia

Christmas eve

The girls are now asleep, the cookies and milk are waiting for Santa and the house is quiet.....for now.  It has been really exciting getting ready for Lia's first Christmas. This time last year we had just met with our Social Worker to change our file, oh how life has changed in a year!!

Ami has had lots of fun teaching her about Santa, hanging stockings and of course about all the presents that will be under the tree tomorrow morning.

Merry Christmas!!!!!

quick update and a picture

Wow, how time flies. 6 months ago today we were just getting home from the airport. 6 months has gone by too fast!! The girls are just way too cute.

Lia loves Handy Manny, Mickey Mouse, any and all candy, baths, Santa, trying to be the boss and of course still her Mama but getting a bit better with her Baba. Lia does not like fruits, vegetables, laying down the law, doing anything even remotely quicker than a snails pace (including walking in the cold, not good).

Ami loves Hello Kitty, grade 1, that a boy has a crush on her and that her spelling test words include things like parliament, responsibility, motorcycles, well ok thats really me but what a great speller she is!! Ami does not like going to sleep in her own bed by herself and pretty much thats all, she is really easy going.
