Angel Under the Tree

Here is our precious little angel girl sleeping peacefully under the Christmas tree.

She looks so peaceful, almost as if nothing is wrong. Oh, how I wish. Wouldn't it be nice if we really got to make a Christmas wish or tell Santa what we wanted for Christmas and it came true? Oh, how I wish there were no such thing as Batten Disease, that no child had to suffer. How I wish for a miracle healing for Emma. How I ache for her to talk and laugh and drink hot chocolate and enjoy this Christmas season. How I yearn to see her face light up when she sees the Abby Cadabby doll I found today to replace hers that was lost in the hurricane last year. How I wish I could go shopping for her and buy things a 3 1/2 year old little girl would love. I wish shopping this Christmas was fun and not heartbreaking. I wish I didn't tear up driving down the street thinking about Emma and wanting so badly for her to be well. How I wish things were just our normal crazy, bustling house with four kiddos running wild, chasing each other, wrestling around, going up and down the stairs. For now, I will wish and pray.

Here is a picture of our den this year at Christmas. What does yours look like?

Here are some sweet pictures of Carleigh and Luke with Santa. We were at a family Christmas party of some friends of ours, and they invite Santa to come in his sleigh every year. He gives all the kids a gift (moms and dads help out a little with this)and takes them for a ride in his sleigh. Luke was so mesmerized with this man. He didn't want to let him out of his sight. It was very sweet...

The other night we loaded everyone up and went to visit Santa at the mall. He was so sweet and patient with the kids and showed such concern about Emma. I like the picture we had made...
