We had a very merry Christmas complete with presents, family, and lots of good food! The boys woke up at 4am on Christmas morning all ready to open their presents. Call me a scrooge but I told them they needed to go back to bed for a couple more hours until they tore into their presents. I *think* they ended up camping in the living room and not so patiently waiting until we woke up and gave them the go ahead. Mia woke up around 8:30am and saw her presents and was all ready to dive into the fun! Santa was very good to the kids this year and I think they were all happy with their gifts.
We spent Christmas day at my parent's house. My sister and brother in law were there along with my grandma. This was the first time my grandma has met Mia so it made Christmas even more special! My sister and brother in law surprised us with a video of Mia's homecoming and of the last few months with her. It was so special and I cried watching it remembering everything that has happened in the past 5 months and how far Mia has come. I can say it over and over again but it is nothing short of miraculous how much she has changed and grown. Looking at the video I was reminded of the fragile condition she was in. To look at her now I am so amazed by her and in awe of the work that God has done in her life and continues to do. How blessed we are to be part of her story!
