Christmas Eve

Joy refused to nap before our family’s Christmas Eve party – which was a sad thing.  She had a good time at the party, but a couple of times we had to talk about hands and feet staying to ourselves.

Getting ready for the party…


Her place at the little kid table


Part of our nativity play – Joy was a sheep (who couldn’t keep her wool on!)IMG_6748

By Wednesday she was back to her life.  Playing with her babies and doing therapy.  This was a Speech eval appointment.  Joy didn’t seem to do very well on the Peabody test.  She placed at a year and a half.  Whatever.  We have seen some much progress lately.  She is talking so much more!!  Yeah Joy!

Two sisters had birthday parties.  She helped blow out candles at both parties.  She got to play games with the big kids – so fun!

This is a terrible picture, but I just loved what she was doing.  It was at her sisters’ piano recital.  She was pretty good, but as time went on (and the pianists improved), she sat there with her hands folded, moving and singing softly to the music.  So adorable!




This is from Becca’s birthday cake with the family.  I love Joy in this video!
