Each member of our family is so different, like individual components of a symphony. But, like a symphony, each part is important to the overall structure and sound of the piece. We all work together to make a beautiful sound...our family. Just as the Lord knit us together in the womb, He is now knitting us together as a family, for His glory, outside the womb.

Winter Fun!

Cb's lost another tooth last week!  It happened right before bed, catching the Tooth Fairy by surprise and unprepared.  So, she left Cb's a note as her prize.  The Tooth Fairy arranged for Cb's and I to have a date this past Monday.  I took her ice skating for the first time.  She did great!  She fell down a few times, but got right back up.  She stayed near the wall so she could quickly grab on when she was going down and zoomed all around the ice rink.  It was fun!
After that, I needed some yarn for my slippers, and there just happens to be a nice little cafe connected to Lambspun, so we went there for yarn and lunch.  After lunch, we came back home, put tiny A to nap and then the three older ones and I went swimming!  I love swimming, though I wish the water was warmer.  We splashed around for a long while and then we always end our time in the hot tub to warm up before heading home.  Aaaah.
Christmas was pleasant and low key.  I feel like we spent the whole day cleaning up, though, with nothing to show for all our efforts by the end of the day.  The kids had fun!
Medium A was wiped out by dinner time.  She crawled under the dining room table and conked out.  As one friend commented, that's when you know you did a good job.:)
Yesterday, we spent the day at my parent's house, which is always fun!  They served Roast Beast, clam chowder and other delicious foods.  We had fun opening presents and were so grateful for their love and generosity.  They even kept the older three overnight!  A very nice treat for all of us.:)  Hence, the extra time to write this blog post right now.  They'll all come back to us this evening and we will be so excited to see them and have them home!  It's nice having a little break, but B and I always miss them when they're gone.  I suppose that's a good thing.:)
