Odds and ends

Last Saturday Lily woke up and told me she was getting married next Saturday. I said really who are you going to marry. She said matter of factly, you mommy, like duh. Then she told me she had her dress all picked out. So here she is in her wedding finery it is even white. She also told me I should have invited her when Daddy and I were married. I told her next time we most definetly would.
Every year Lily gets a hallmark ornament for christmas. The first two I picked out for her. She was still in Guatemala when I picked out her cat.

Then I picked out the ornament of hope when she had been home only a few short months. It says hope in several different languages.

Last year she took charge of the ornament picking. Was there any doubt what it would be.

This year I took her to Hallmark before we had our tree up and she tried to pick Thomas again. So we left to come back after we had confirmation that Thomas was for surely in our possession. This is the ornament she picked out and it speaks to my girls year just perfectly.

Lastly all last year I hunted this christmas village to no avail. A train goes around the village with Santa and his sack of toys. So this year when I saw it I knew it must be mine. I put it in my cart and then felt much guilt as the money left my wallet as it was more than I wanted to spend. But this is where I find my girl quite often and it was well worth every penny.

Do you ever wonder what kids think of us when we just don't get it. Hope you both had a wonderful wedding. Yes Maya asks alot if she was there at this event or that, and I will mention that she wasn't born yet, of course "why?" she thinks she has missed out on quite alot I think.
