Jillian and I have been working on a gingerbread house, SUPER fun but really difficult when you have an almost 2 year old sitting on your lap trying to take apart everything that you've put together.
Getting in the Christmas Spirit has been really hard this year, this whole thing with Mally has brought a new light to Christmas though. I am inspired by everyone that has paid off people's layaway. It's just amazing to see random strangers helping out strangers. My family and I decided that instead of my parents buying us presents that we would help out a family that did not have anything, and I hope those kids have the BEST Christmas EVER! This is a tradition that our Family intends on doing from now. It's just an incredible feeling to know that 7 kids are going to have a good Christmas because of our family.
Today is the big meeting, when they give us all the finalized reports, explain things more, and tell us treatment. I am nervous, anxious, and excited to get the ball rolling so that Miss Mallory can get done with this and move on so we don't have to worry about anything but her being a kid. This is a HUGE thing to me, I want my kids to remain kids for as long as possible, there are so many unfair things in life (for example CANCER) and we don't want them to have any burdens.. So for now Ryan and I will carry the weight for as long as possible and allow them to enjoy things that are appropriate for there age for as long as we can.
I hope everyone has a blessed day and we will have lots of news to share this afternoon with everyone.
