Today we got to spend the day with this little sweet heart.   This is the little girl that I keep during the week.  Doesn’t she just melt your heart?!   Her mommy is pretty sweet too and working her little tail off to finish school for this sweet girl.  Pray strength for them when you think of it.   I spend most days holding this sweet baby and praying for the two of them. 

Except today the holding and praying took place in the wonderful world of IKEA.  A great place to Christmas shop because we discovered you can put your potty trained kids in their FREE childcare, buy your gifts, hide them in the car, go pick up the kids, and then feed everyone for $0.99 each.  The kids had a blast, Brent and I felt like we sort of kind of had a date (other than the 20 month old and 3 month old we were carrying around with us), and all Christmas shopping is now complete.   Genius.

The girls also got to go on a date with daddy this afternoon.   This was Elliana’s first time to go to a movie theater, and I’m going to bet I will never get her in one again.  It seems the movie “Tangled” was a bit too intense for her.  Her response when she walked in the door wide eyed was, “the ending was good…I guess…”

We spent the rest of the afternoon and evening wrestling, reading happy Christmas stories, and praying she won’t be up all night with nightmares.  I hate to be woken up in the middle of the night….oh, and I feel bad for the kid and the whole nightmare thing too…but mainly I just hate to be woken up.

Happy Friday!

Wow. It's Quiet Here...
