Christmas 2010

Christmas was pretty good this year.  We had so much fun spending time with family and seeing their faces light up with unexpected gifts!  I think Jared’s highlight was going on a scavenger hunt set up by little sister Janessa.  I took little video clips of it and he laughs every time we watch them.  He’s such a goof!  The Reimer’s went out for our usual midnight carolling where we attempted the ‘Jingle Bell Rock’ which did not turn out well.  Maybe next year we’ll bring song books!  
Watching our nieces and nephews get excited about what they received was also very fun!  We played a lot of Nintendo Wii at a number of gatherings.  I even dreamt about our Wii Characters!  Weird...!

There was only one down side to Christmas this year.  Being 2 weeks late I had my hopes way to high that our ‘Ferrari’ was finally on the way! I managed to squeeze in 3 pregnancy tests the week before Christmas.  One at home (negative), at the doctors (negative) and a blood test because the doctor was still not convinced.  Christmas morning brought a rude surprise! I did manage to find an upside to not being pregnant right now though. (Crazy I know!)  I can take antibiotics for my double eye infections, and decongestants for my wicked cold!

Despite the heart ache with not having a baby according to our plan, we do know that God has a bigger and better plan for us that will be TOTALLY worth it!

‘We can rejoice, too, when we run
into problems and trials, for we
know that they are good for us
they help us learn to endure
-Romans 5:3(NLT)
