My little monster was ADORABLE in his Christmas program. I completely turned into mush when I saw him up there waving at us from the stage. Not sure I have ever been more proud. That is what being a Mom is all about!

The joy of giving is so overwhelming! I am fortunate to have a job where I get paid to give everyday and actually see the results. I just finished picking up over 100 toys for foster children that were donated by Houston families. What a great feeling! On my way to work today I was listening to the St. Jude's radio-thon on a local station. They get me crying every year!!! The stories are so compelling. They were pleading to those families that have healthy children to think of those that don't. Say no more...I called in and made my donation. This holiday, I am so grateful to have healthy family and to be in a position to give to those who don't.
On another note; Austin mailed two letters (pictures) to Santa last night in hopes to get on back in return. He saw Santa a few weeks ago and told him that he wants roller skates, a motorcycle, an ice cream machine and another machine (?). I think he is watching too much Calliou. :) Thankfully he is also learning through school and us that Christmas is about celebrating Jesus' birthday.
All is well with baby Heflin (at least that is what the nausea is telling me). I am 3 months along now and have another Dr. appointment on Monday so more on that later.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from our family to yours.
