First Christmas Home!

George is home for the holidays with his parents this year!

Congratulations first time parents Violet and Kostas!

Kai and Santa!

Kai and Santa talked about his "list" this year as Santa offered Kai a cookie and milk! Kai has been home with his family since October 2008.

Drew's 2nd Christmas Home...

From Drew's mom- "These are the 1st "brother" photos with the boys. Drew has been home with us for two years on December 2nd. His "gotcha day" was Dec. 2, 2008. It has been a wonderful 2 years and Drew has just blossomed. He loves the Christmas tree and points the star out every time he sees it by saying, "my star". He sat on Santa's lap without being scared but was very serious when he asked him to bring him a present. He gets so excited to see Christmas lights. He will just start yelling in the car, "look, look, Christmas lights!" It should be an exciting Christmas indeed!"

Picking Out the Tree and Meeting Santa

Naveia and Santa on November 27th!
Report from Naveia's mom- With each new season and holiday brings with it new words and first experiences. For example Naveia has always asked if she can pet any animal she sees in a book. So when she saw an ornament of Santa petting a reindeer she said, "Why can Santa pet a reindeer and not us?" I realized at that point she doesn't even know that the reindeer pull Santa's sleigh. That night we read The Night Before Christmas and she experienced the special connection Santa has with his reindeer.
