Maggie Makes Four!

This journal started off documenting the adoption of our youngest daughter. It now follows the twist and turns of our lives as we raise these two amazing little creatures into the best women they can become.

The Kick Off to the Holiday Season

It seems the Holiday season comes earlier every year. Red and green graces stores long before the orange and black of Halloween is put away. While it's hard not to love the holiday season for its themes of feast, family and festivities, the hustle and bustle is often exhausting...not that it isn't worth it. It's just tiring.

For me the holiday season is a 72 day marathon of events that start on Saturday, when the Magster turns 4. After the Magster's birthday, there's Halloween, then her family day on November 15. And we're sandwiching in a surprise trip to Disneyland between Halloween and Family Day. Gosh, then it's Thanksgiving, my personal favorite holiday. Then, whew...we have a break until...well, La Nina's family day on December 16th...that is unless we celebrate her Nutcracker debut as a Gingerbread which happens on December 9. Either way, we're definitely celebrating the Dad's birthday on December 21 and of course, Santa visits all good girls and boys on Christmas. Then, New Years' after that...not that I'll have the energy to ring in a new year after finishing off this one.

Happy Holidays Everyone!
