1...2... We Thank-You!

Ethan and Abigail have received so many presents and cards from you in the last 10 months.  They would LOVE to make thank-you cards for all of you but I thought maybe this would be the best way to cover everyone. (the only idea I had was to add the word 'we' - the rest is all their creation) And after several tries to get a good picture, I settled for one child looking at me....
If the inside of the card had words, it would read -
"Thank-you for all your wonderful gifts, and for playing with us!
Thank-you for praying for baby Rachel too.
We are so glad you are our friends!"

I'm adorable.
Update on Rachel - We have taken out the rice cereal from her feeds now - she doesn't seem to need it anymore and it makes preparing her feeds so much simpler too! (yay!) Dave just informed me that last night was pretty rough.  (He was so kind to take most of the night duty!!) Rachel was throwing up because of her cough.  Yup, another cold. Her congestion makes feeding challenging sometimes too. (and she already needs to eat soooo very often) But she's still hanging in there.  She's a tough little cookie.

Rachel looks intrigued by the Christmas decorations! How cute she is in her Christmas clothes. The thank-you card is great, too. I'm so glad that I know Ethan and Abigail better now, after our visit. You have such amazing children!
