We wish you a Lowe Christmas!

For FHE (family home evening for those of you who aren't LDS and don't understand my mormonisms) a few weeks back we put of the Christmas tree upstairs and decorated for the season. Santa will of course be coming upstairs to visit our family's "apartment" as well so we had to bust out the tree and stuff. This picture doesn't show the stockings, but they are hanging behind the tree now and we have a cute little nativity on a tiny table next to the tree too! Here are my crazy decorators making beautiful faces like usual. Miah found that jingle bell necklace in my big container of things and he claimed it as his own. He wears it all the time whenever we go out to run errands and stuff, it's so funny. Kora's face is really red because she had a meltdown and was bawling halfway through the decorating...I'll explain in a minute...

We nixed the angel we usually have atop our tree and placed the beautiful peacock topper on the tree instead. This is the one my mom got us that I told you about a while back, isn't he handsome? Very pea"cocky" huh?

Okay so this is the decoration Kora found that made her almost want to kill herself. She saw this cute little door hanger that a friend picked up for us quite a few years ago, obviously because we only had one child at the time. She could not get over the fact that she wasn't on the board. I told her over and over that she wasn't born yet, she wasn't even in my tummy, I didn't even know about her, etc. etc. but she wouldn't accept any excuse. She just kept crying and saying that I loved Jake more then and why COULDN'T I have know about her, why didn't I HAVE her yet??? It was so dramatic and SOO hysterical. I was trying not to laugh, but I couldn't help it, it was just too ridiculous and that only made her more upset. She's like this about SO many things and even yesterday she was upset saying that I loved Miah more because Jake accidentally slammed his head in the car door and I was hugging him to make him feel better. I was like, KORA...for crying out LOUD!! Ohhh Kora, what am I going to do with you?!

Poor kora.. i hate that she doesn't understand. It makes me sad for her... and then i think about Dan in Real Life and how his daughter said she was in "love" at 15 and the drama of it all and it made me say a little prayer for you and austin when KORA reaches that age and is "in love" ahh kora... we love you so much.

Sounds like the george girls all over again! Make sure to keep it even and throw that sign away or add the 2 new babies somehow...for heavens sake!!

Poor middle child. Josh is going through the same thing. He tell me how I never cuddle with him anymore, now that I have Eddie, and how he gets forgotten, I ALWAYS forget what he wants now. I feel for you. I just don't know what to do about it?!

Perhaps you could ask your clever dad to fashion a "shingle on a chain" with KoKo and Miah's names on it and hang it below the original. I can year him now: "Thanks Sis, I really needed something else to ruddy do." Oh how I wish these blogs had been available whilst I was in Europe--they have become an important part of me day.
Thank you all. Aunt Marian

Yeah... that drama only gets worse I'm sure you know. My almost 8 yr old turns tears on and off like the faucet. Just hope the baby is a boy! My 3 girls are going to drive me to distraction I can tell already. :)

KoKo
don't worry your mawmaw loves you very much and I even loved you and had your name on all my stuff when you were not even in your mommy's tummy yet. She is just using that as an excuse. Moms do those kind of things you know but mawmaws never do:).

Love mawmaw
