Christmas for ALL our Children!!
Apart from not being together as an entire family, it was a wonderful Christmas.
The kids had a great time and enjoyed playing together, as well as trying all the different foods that were coming their way. We tried to keep up some traditions and we went out to lunch on Christmas Eve at a Chinese Restaurant. Then on Christmas morning we had egg casserole, and home made cinnamon rolls thanks to Melanie. They each opened their gift and were thrilled as expected. That afternoon we had lunch with another family and the kids stuck to the foods that they knew. Beets, turkey and the rolls. We enjoyed all the other fixins'.
It was good to slow down and not get caught up in the rush of it all. Oh how I missed being with everyone, but back home Chris said they had a good day and enjoyed all their gifts and time with Grandma, Kayleigh and Daddy.
We found out that the Deputy Prime Minister signed off on our paperwork!! Please pray that we go to court this week so we can begin the immigration process. We are still praying that we will be able to leave on our January 14th flight. Please continue to pray that the family we are here with experiences a miracle and are able to leave then as well.
