If you are coming from Building Heavenly Bridges (BHB), WELCOME and if you are finding me for the first time and looking for support after a loss, then please check me out at my grief/loss blog!

This blog is a series of anecdotes from our life after losing our first child, a stillborn daughter, then going on to birth the two other lights of our lives!

Bear is 6: serious, organized, my cruise director and my time keeper.

The Comedian is 4: She is pure comedy always doing something unintentionaly funny that I attempt to put into words.

Enjoy our stories, conversations, and delights as we embrace the lives of our second and third daughters without ever negating our first.

Show and Tell: Christmas Update!

Ho! Ho! Ho! Santa came this year with a twinkle in his eye, a belly that wiggled like jelly and a moderate basket of gifts... Um...yes the white napkins are there. Shoot me - but it was just too cute a request! And - uh - stop looking at me like that, YES those are hand me down, bought for a few pennies at a yard sale barbies...but there are a FEW new things in that basket.

and a mildly repremanding scroll. (click HERE and scroll down to read his letter)

I cannot take credit for the eerie glow around the scroll. I guess Santa really meant business!!

The girls thought so too, and for 24 hours the spell held bringing with it calm words, kind hearts, lots of please's and thank you's and the sharing - Oh the sharing - it was enough to melt my heart and convince me that we have done something right on the rocky road called parenthood!

Oh - and here is a picture of my well-behaved family on Christmas.

Don't forget to see what angelic things others are showing and telling!

I can't tell from the photo -- did the Comedian make an extra-special Christmas eye patch?

Glad that everyone had a good Christmas.

Cara said...

Yes! It had stockings on it!

Martha said...

I love the Barbies and the white napkins, so funny and cute. The picture is wonderful, you have a beautiful family.

Kristin said...

What a lovely family pic. I love that the Comedian decorated her eye patch for Christmas!

Your Santa letter was great! Hope it works!

So, did the white napkins get greeted with the same Christmas fervor as the Barbies?? :0)

I still think that is a total hoot.

The scroll was an AWESOME touch!

sara said...

I love the family of your family...very cool!

Another Dreamer said...

LOL! Love the letter, and the eye patch!

Glad everyone enjoyed themselves.

Cara said...

Ahh- but that is the best part about my sweet Comedian. Every gift - yes even the napkins - is met with a loud *gasp* and wide eyes (well - eye this year).

That girl really knows how to live in the moment.

So what has The Comedian done with her napkins? Are they for tea parties?

WiseGuy said...

Hiyas Cara...thanks for the birthday wishes. And I am glad that Christmas was good for you...Looking for new editions of Bear and Comedian Adventures in 2009!
