#1: Finding out that we have another neice or nephew on the way! As soon as the Reinhards got home the girls couldn't wait to put on their pajamas. Marisa jumped out with the biggest smile on her face, hands way up in the air and yelled, "SURPRISE!!!" At first I just thought she finally fit into a hand-me-down from Mia and was excited, but when I saw Mia wearing her shirt I put two and two together.
#2 Watching Mia turn into such a big girl. When it was bedtime she cutely and calmly came over and asked so nicely if she could stay up a little later to help Grandpa finish making the Cranberry Ice. Andi said yes and it was just precious.
#7 Cranberry Cheese Bread for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack. Mmmmmmm.
#8 Hearing Marisa call her braids "Braidins" So cute! "Do you like my Braidins?" I think it's from asking her "Do you want us to put your braids in?"
#9 Mia saying, "Aunt Bethany, thanks for making me an office. I LOVE it." When I was home in October I put all my stationery, stickers, markers, etc. all in my desk instead of storing them randomly and having other stuff stored in the drawers. Now it's actually functional and she was down there "Working in her office" almost the whole weekend.
#14 Building a fort for the girls. They were so excited!
#15 Watching Adeline play in the snow. She was a trooper!
#16 Getting 6 inches of snow! It was so pretty and it looked like Christmas so it kinda felt like we did get to be home!
#17 FINALLY finding a tree this year after turning completely numb about 45 minutes before we found it.
