Elizabeth saves the day again and again! I am so bad with my computer and can do so little. She is so patient to teach me and help me get things set up. She showed me for the third time how to put pictures on my blog. I will catch up our last few weeks. Here is Sarah and I in her Moby wrap. That sweet little girl fills my world with such happiness. She is smiling, playing with toys, and really getting into the world around her. She is growing beautifully- so tall.
Here is my niece, Grace rocking Sarah to sleep. They are so darling together. Sarah actually fell asleep.
I finally bought stockings for Keith and I this year. Always a hard one... are we a family of 6 or a family of 5? I guess it is possible to be a little of both. I find myself thinking of my life in terms of WL (with Luke) and AL (After Luke). Pictures like these where they overlap are confusing right now.
Keith and Benjamin got to enjoy a lot of chess over Christmas break. We were slugs and did not go out much. We all needed some downtime.
Sarah Elizabeth and Sarah Jane. Keith's cousin is a precious woman. I am hoping that our Sarah grows up to have many of her attributes.
Sarah Jane is totally infatuated with her big cousins- Here is Kate and Allison. Abby is not pictured here, but she is the oldest girl on Keith's side. All three of the little girls think she is the best!
Samuel, Benjamin, and Sarah Christmas morning. We found joy that morning- we remembered Christmases past. We shared stories about Luke. Sarah Jane slept through the present opening, but her brothers opened her gifts for her. We kept it happy. After all, it was Sarah's first Christmas. Christmas Eve was harder.I am back at work and doing well. Much better transistion than the one in November. We are anticipating Luke's birthday this month. Luke will be forever eight. He is frozen in time for us. It will be so odd someday when we say, "He would have been 42" or something like that. He will always be just a little boy to us.
Samuel and Benjamin made a good transisiton back to school. We are so proud of them. We have been on a wait list for the counseling place but have been notified that we will be able to start in February. Hope that will be good for us all.
