Merry Christmas!!!

As you all know, last year, after 5 weeks in hospital, Mirabel came home for the first time on Christmas Eve. Although she is the best present any of us could ever hope for, I think we were all a little terrified those first couple of days.

This year couldn't have been more different. Our little girl is healthy and happy and we actually celebrated Christmas with a nice dinner and presents and everything!

We had the family over last night for dinner

And this today our little family had our first real Christmas morning. Mirabel still needed a little help opening her presents but she sure knew who they were for (not that it kept her from wanting to play with Mommy and Daddy's presents or just playing with ribbons and boxes and wrapping paper.

We are SO thankful for our little girl and for everything God has given us and we hope that you all are also having the best Christmas EVER!
