I don't have adequate words to tell you how much your sweet words and outpouring of support mean to me, to my mom, to our entire family. We firmly believe in the power of prayer and we thank you for keeping her in your prayers as she undergoes a second surgery on Tuesday, January 22nd. She has told me time and again how reading and re-reading the comments has touched her heart. ThAnK yOu, fRienDs!
Today is Noonie's birthday!! Her 62nd! Woo hoo! We are celebrating by taking her out to eat tonight at one of our favorite hibachi grills - yum!
And since I'm behind on posting pics, I want to share our Dia de los Reyes pictures - yes, the 3 Wise Men. You can read about this sweet tradition here, here, and here.
Yup, that's us cutting what little green grass is left in our backyard to leave for the camels of the Wise Men, who as they travel through the night on January 5th, on their way to meet baby Jesus, stop by the homes of good little boys and girls to have a midnight snack of grass and water and then leave a little present or two under the beds of the littles...
Comparing who had more grass...always a competition around here!!
My sweet littles...
On our way to my dear friend Segi's rehearsal dinner!
Just before bedtime, the littles put their little bowls of grass under their beds...
And then on the morning of January 6th...Epiphany...
Yes! They ate all the grass and left a couple of presents for the littles!
Look, mama! They ate it ALL!
And then later that morning, Noonie & Papa J stopped by...
My very own artist palette & canvas set with REAL paints!
The box was even MORE fun! ;)
ThANk yOU, NooNie & PaPa J!
And....................Happy, Happy Birthday, Noonie!!! We love you so much!!
