Yesterday was a huge day. We went to Winter Fair at the boys' school -- which was just as magical and amazing as last year (I wrote about it last year in this post). We left early to hurry home to host, what is, for Kyle and Owen, truly, The Event of the Season. Our 2nd annual Pennsylvania-Area Haiti-Adoptive-Families Christmas Party. As I've been uploading the photos, I've been sitting here at my computer trying hard to think of how to write about it in a way that would do it justice. I was at a loss. Then I just went back and read my post from last year's "Haiti Christmas Party" (as K & O call it), and I can't think of any way to say it better than I did there. So, all I've gotta say is: DITTO to that post. This year we had 57 people, 37 of which were kids. There was a moment when we had a big group of them in the playroom all singing Jingle Bells. It was crazy, but it was also beautiful on so many levels. What an incredibly, incredibly good time was had. I feel like it is really Christmas now.
