So here is a cute story of Lilah. Jon and Lilah went outside to see if our mailbox lock was fix and to see the Christmas lights. She saw the moon and tried to reach out and physically touch the moon, and said “We probably get a ladder.” Daddy said it was to high for a ladder even. The she said she would need grandpa’s ladder. Still it was too far away. We told her we’d need a rocket to go to the moon. Jon enjoyed her thinking of getting a ladder and then getting grandpa Harvey’s ladder because it’s taller then ours. Really we only have a step stool. She’s just too cute.

Now a story that makes me laugh. Imagine you just woke up and then a strange person who is fifteen times your size, and quite loud comes in and says hello, picks you up out of your bed, and then places you and a table. Wouldn’t you cry? That’s what Eden did when my brother Glenn went in to get her while he was here. She’d just woken up and he said “Hello Eden” in a loud voice and found out she needed a diaper change once he picked her up, so he put her on the changing table and she started to cry. I think the stranger anxiety stage is starting. Though I think part of the problem was she wasn’t expecting a loud, large man to come into her room, since the last time she saw him was about a month ago, and pick her up after her nap. Plus Jon and I are small not, soft spoken, just not loud people. He’s only 5’6 and 135lbs, I’m 5’4 and 125 lbs, and my brother is 6’+ and 200+ lbs. I think she was more startled then anything. She was happier after I held her and changed her diaper and went to him fine. I think it was just the initial shock.

Not enough time in the day

I can’t believe Christmas is just a over a week away. I still need to go buy Lilah a dress and get something for my brother for Christmas. We exchange names within my family so we only have to buy for a family, couple, or person, depending on the current dating or marrying status of who we have. Anyways I have my brother Glenn. Luckily he came by and I was able to ask him about things he wanted that didn’t cost too much, since we also bought a couple things for his two girls to ship with his package. He’s divorced and his ex and two daughters are in Utah while he is in Henderson with my parents.
Our goal is to go out early tomorrow as a family and get shoes for Lilah and some things at target. As Lilah is now able to communicate her excitement I’m looking forward to doing more of the stocking thing and presents. We just set up our tree and she had a blast. She loves having the lights on.
I still need to clean and organize my house and get to sewing. My priority tonight and tomorrow is to do my RS lesson. I’ve read it through and had some ideas, so now I just need to transfer it to paper.
