meeting Santa!!! Ruby was so excited to meet santa at the Firmages Christmas Party. As he was walking in she said "I want an Elsa and an Anna" before he even sat down. She was determined to get her request in.
Eddie on the other hand was not so happy to meet the big guy.
Eddie ended up in the ER the other night. He woke up struggling to breathe and after talking to the on call doctor we deeded to run him up to Primarys. He ended up being just fine and after a dose of steroids he was breathing like a champ. It's amazing to me how you can think that you are dealing so well and coping with the past until you face it without notice. Walking a sick kiddo through the doors of the hospital certainly brought back a lot. I hope that I can raise these healthy babes without making them to nervous about everyday life and sickness. Heaven knows that I am trying.

Its hard as we are hitting two and a half years without Lila to see some people forgetting her. Lila's tree at the cemetery is getting far less ornaments than it did last year. But the few people that do remember her warm my heart very much and pictures like this of a little girl Lila's age bringing her the ornament that she made from school is priceless.
It's funny how these small and normal events like a dance concert can mean so much. I was practically giddy watching Ruby. When Lila was born all the girls were taking dance class from Mrs Jodi. It ached to hear about their dance recitals. I never thought that I would have a little girl to dress in a tutu and watch twirl on stage. Watching her do her dances was one of those perfect life moments that I wish I could just bottle up and keep for forever.
I thought that Ruby might not want to dance when it all came down to it but she was wonderful! She really loved the lime light and was so stinkin adorable. She would stop and wave at us and get so excited. We love this dancing girl.
Ruby and Adalaide
We are lucky for a wonderful and supportive family
