Going Home. . .

My grandma is supposed to go home from the hospital tomorrow. She has a good month or so of recovery time, but the doctors seem to think she'll do okay. I talked to her on the phone for a minute today. She told me to "take care of those babies." : ) I love my grandma.

We put up our Christmas trees today! We haven't decorated them yet, but we got them put together. I'm sure Tra would love it that I'm saying "we" when it was actually just one of us. : ) I love Christmas time. I'm looking forward to doing more decorating tomorrow.

Hayley likes the Christmas trees. It will be fun to go through the Christmas season with her this year. She is such a hoot. She loves the song "Head, shoulders, knees and toes" and will randomly just grab her head and start shaking her hips and trying to sing it, but of course no legitimate words come out. But that's my cue to start singing and she'll get really excited, shake her hips even harder, and clap for herself after the song is over. Tra and I were talking tonight about how excited we are to have another one running around before too long. What a JOY these precious children are from God. (I need to come back to this entry to re-read when they hit adolescence to remind myself that they really ARE a joy!) How thankful I am to be "mama".
