Parent FAIL/Santa Edition

Judah's daycare has a wonderful little holiday gift exchange. Santa's invited. A dad or grandpa always performs the role. According to legend, no child has ever identified their father or grandfather.

Tommy dressed up as Santa this year. He looked great. Tommy made a fabulous, albeit slightly skinny Santa.

Tommy walked into the room.
Judah instantly yelled, "Daddy! THAT'S MY DADDY!"
The rest of the children scattered and appeared too scared to notice Judah's announcement.

Since then Judah has been walking around saying "Santa is my daddy!"
He seems to like the idea.

He's only 2.
I think we are doing it wrong.
Pretty sure.

Old Christmas Card, Old Christmas Card

Judah and I made these today out of old Christmas cards...
Judah likes to recycle :)
I like his hand print.

Thanksgiving 2009

Ignore that it's mid-December. Pretend like it's the day after Thanksgiving.

Thank you.

One of my very favorite things about the holidays is watching Judah play with his cousins. The nicest bunch of children. Seriously. I get teary just thinking about how sweet the group is. I feel very fortunate that I have such a big, beautiful family. Watching Judah be a part of all the holiday magic and craziness is definitely a highlight of my life...and his. Judah had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I think I heard him run and giggle for about three hours straight.

Here's some Lily and Judah goodness:

One hurdle that many adoptive families struggle with is the $. It's hard. So, so hard.

Here's what I'm thinking:

I want to create a space (who am I kidding? Ok, I'll come clean. I'm thinking about having my sweet, sweet husband create a space) on to display and sell items that families have created to help fund their adoption.
What do you think?
Do you think there would be interest? Are you interested?

I'm busy purchasing Christmas gifts and LOVE supporting adoption in the process. I'm super impressed with the beautiful and creative items I've come across.

Judah and I are busy making Christmas gifts today. I'll post later. They are not for sale :)
