This was Riley a year ago when we took him and his friend Ella to have Mr and Mrs Claus photo's taken. I couldn't resist bringing them out again this year to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.
These too are going up to be quite the friends and do have an arranged marriage so will some day be
Mr and Mrs Claus for real. I'm sure they'll appreciate these photo's when they are older.
This year as I count my blessing I have so many friendships to be thankful for. The one above is just one example of how friends have touched my life. Ella and Riley have extra chromosomes in common but our familes have so much more. It has been wonderful to find a friend in Kacey and the rest of the family.
As we prepare for Christmas this year we have been talking more and more about the real reason for Christmas. I love that my 7 year old really does understand that when we celebrate the birthday of Jesus that its more than just a reason to get gifts.
I am also counting my blessings of a wonderful family and good health. I wish that everyone was a fortunate as my family in this department.
Merry Christmas and I wish your family good health and good fortune as you prepare for Christmas.
