The stockings are hung by the fireplace..uh, we don't have one of those so by the buffet instead :)
It's nearly Christmas and you can just feel the excitement in the air here in the Forever Home! On Tuesday mom, dad,Shawna, Elise, and Elizabeth all went to Beijing to finish up our Christmas shopping while the Forever Home girls were in school. When they returned home and saw all the wrapped presents under the tree, they were were sooo excited!! In fact, they were quite loud and excited all evening and we often found ourselves shhhing them to keep some of the noise down for the neighbors :) They also found it hard to go to sleep that night! Sooo many girls.....sooo much excitement!! Wouldn't have it any other way!! They are a joy and blessing to us!!
Guess who I find sitting by the tree staring at the gifts? Hannah!! I find her there a lot these days :) She's quite excited about Christmas and is having a hard time waiting until it arrives. While I also see the other girls under the tree admiring the gifts, I find Hannah there more often than not. She was the only one I was able to get a picture of as she gave me soooo many opportunities to get a picture, right Hannah?!
Hannah says, "This one is mine :0" (among others of course) Don't worry Hannah, Christmas is almost here!
