Shark's game.

First taste of peas

Despite the looks on their faces, they actually enjoyed it.
Waiting for the grub.

Family visits

Great Grandma Iva and Great Uncle Jay stopped by to see the girls.
The girls are a little under the weather-they both have colds.

More Christmas

On Sunday, they enjoyed a dinner with their Grandpa and Grandma Hoff and their aunts, Hannah, Sarah and Rachel. They opened presents and again enjoyed the wrapping paper very much.
Savanah came bearing gifts on Monday.
They have been so blessed with loving families and friends. God continues to watch over them and we lift up our grateful prayers.

Quote of the Day:
Grandmas don't just say "that's nice"....they reel back and roll their eyes and throw up their hands and smile. You get your money's worth out of grandmas.

First Christmas Eve

They enjoyed the festivities.
Quote of the Day:
Christmas Eve was a night of song that wrapped itself about you like a shawl. But it warmed more than your body. It warmed your heart...filled it, too with a melody that lasts forever.

Christmas is coming!

Here is lovely Savanah, the girls' caregiver.
Watch out, Clara, Santa is watching.
The tag does say 'Clara'.

Olivia must have lost the bet.

Olivia has double ear infections. (does everything have to be doubled?)
She still carries on, such a trooper.

Quote of the Day:
It is the things we play with and the people who help us play
that make the difference in our lives.
