So since we could not see the babies, we decided we needed to have a little fun. We went to McDonalds and watched all of the people shoveling snow away from and off of their cars. It was fun getting out of the apartment and seeing everything covered in white. When we got back, Tony and the girls went out to make a snowman, but did not succeed. They had a lot of fun though as I watched them through the window. We then walked over to the market and had a cup of coffee (hot chocolate for the kids). We had to rush home because we were late for a Skype date with our kiddos back home.
We had been Skyping them off and on, but this was the first time in a week when they were all together. It was so good to see their faces and to hear that they were doing well. They are out of school for the holidays and were all excited. Our family back home is doing a great job of taking care of them and making sure this time is special for them. If we're still here for Christmas, we thinking enjoying their Christmas with them via Skype. Kind of silly, but we would love to just watch them open their gifts. Of course, we will have another Christmas with them as soon as we get back home.
Well I've written all that I can about a pretty uneventful day. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers and for your encouraging comments and e-mails. We truly love reading all of your comments and are so thankful that so many of you are praying for us. Thanks, Leah.
