Madeline got this watch in her stocking. (I had actually purchased it with Emily in mind - but decided to give it to Maddie) I'm so glad I did. She LOVES it. I would say it is BY FAR her favorite Christmas gift that has stood the test of time. (Pun intended!)
Don't tell my fellow Mary Kay ladies . . . my girls do NOT seem to have the "make up" gene. They end up looking like painted Indians after a make up session. (I have a feeling that is politically incorrect?)
Maddies cheeks were red for days - I'm not sure if it was 1. stain 2. from scrubbing or 3. she reacted to the make up.
Here is a dress my friend, Steph, bought for Kate. Sooo sweet. She was all dressed and ready for church. Speaking of church. . . this is the first baby I have had that is AWESOME in the nursery. She has been fine in there from the start. And the workers LOVE her- especially the men. They practically fight to get her, which makes me feel wonderful!!!
I think Brian and I are both trying to drink in Kate as our last baby. I asked him the other night one.more.time. if he was at all open to the idea of us adopting. He is not. So, I will continue to prepare to rid our house of baby stuff. :( I do not think adopting is a wise decision for us financially, but I keep thinking of the verse: true religion as God sees it is this: caring for widows and orphans in distress. I just want to so bad in my heart. We'll see. . .
