These parcels travelling all around the world, it's just amazing isn't it?! I got exactly the same and she wrote me a really nice Christmas card too.

I'm keeping Renae and the entire family in my thoughts. This must be a difficult time for them.

How cool to have such a terrific ornament on your tree. Hey, we stopped by after Kate's dance recital and rang the doorbell. We left a little something for Kat in the mailbox.

Love you!

Hi Dani!

I was just browsing your blog and saw that your daughters name is Katherine. I LOVE that name. It is in fact the next girls name on my list...except that I am not having any more children. Maybe if we adopt someday????

Lovely ornament!

Merry Christmas!

Hi Dani

So happy that you are enjoying the bauble and what a treat to see it on your tree.

Thank you so much for including Renae in your post, I was so touched to read your request for prayers for her. Renae is having her surgery tomorrow (Tuesday)monring at 7:00am. We are praying that the surgery and subsequent pathology results give her the all clear and that her markers are elevated purely because of the cyst.

Knowing that you are thinking of us and praying for Renae brings us peace and so much comfort.

Lots of love and big hugs
