"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11


My Oh My!

I am behind.....ok, REALLY behind. School is out for the summer and maybe now I can get caught up again! Lots of posts ahead; be prepared!

Christmas 2012

Nola has never sat in Santa's lap by herself until this year. She willingly went up and talked to Santa at MOSD's Christmas party. She let him know all the things her little heart desired. 

Silas didn't want to be left out. He joined in on the fun. 

The kids then sang Santa some Christmas songs. The MOSD Christmas party was a bittersweet time for me. This was Nola's last Christmas celebration at Memphis Oral School for the Deaf. I wasn't sure how I was going to handle graduation in May!

We also went to The Enchanted Forest. This was to benefit LeBonheur Children's Hospital. Trigon bought several penguins in support of Nola and the hospital. 

What day is complete without a picture with Santa?!

Nola with one of the penguins. Not sure why it didn't rotate for me. :(

Christmas at Mimi & Big Dad's
Nola was all smile when it was present time! 

Silas just enjoyed ripping paper!

There was alot of big sister "helping" when it was present opening time for Silas. 

Nola got a handmade rag doll that had cochlear implants. It was the neatest thing ever! The implants were magnetic to the doll's head just like Nola's!

Ber and Silas

Mom, Dad, Ms. Vann, Connie, and Rick came over that afternoon for round 2. 

Big Dad got a kick out his gift box.. 

Uncle Chris participated in beauty school! That color looked great on him :)

Christmas Morning- we were all sleepy!!

Santa came!!! 

More gifts

After Santa, we headed to Nanny's. 

Then we went to Honey and Pop-Pop's

Lots of gifts and fun!

We had a wonderful Christmas! Lots of quality family time and more gifts than we needed.
