Gonna be here awhile

Well, it looks like we will be spending Christmas in Hanoi. Perhaps we will head to the mountains for a couply days, or maybe Halong Bay. I will be home before New Years, though.

Spent most of the day waiting for news, and was glad to finally hear it, but upset at the same time. I REALLY miss Olivia and Gracie.

The girls were pretty cranky today. I am hoping that tomorrow isn't as bad, even with having a baby before that was a cryer, crying is hard. You want so badly to be able to do something for them! They are so adorable though and one little smile melts it all away!

Hoping you all are having a good start to the week and are preparing for Christmas.

:( So sorry you'll be missing Christmas here. Grace & Olivia will be loved on tons though - I know the boys can't wait to see them again next week. Give those four cheeks a little kiss for me! As anti-baby as I am they are looking rather irrisistable.

Sorry to hear you won't make it home for Christmas. I know ow much you must miss your family. I'm glad your Dad is there with you. It has to offer you a little comfort to know you have someone there that you can depend on.
Praying hard that you will make it home by New Year Eve.

Praying for peace for you this Christmas- it will certainly be one you will always remember, and bring the true meaning of the holiday home to you. Now you know, and you have an opportunity to capture even more culture for your girls scrapbooks- they will know about their homeland through this extra time that you have been given (blessed with -- Phillipians 4:4-7 Brothers and sisters:
Rejoice in the Lord always.
I shall say it again: rejoice!
Your kindness should be known to all.
The Lord is near.
Have no anxiety at all, but in everything,
by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,
make your requests known to God.
Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding
will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.) in their homeland

Now we can learn of their Christmas traditions- through you-

I'm sorry you won't be home for Christmas. That's disappointing. We don't know the exact day Christ was born, so maybe this year you can make it a new day and celebrate when you return home. It will be all the more special then. I bet you miss your girls terribly. It's so hard being away. Just think of them having a fun time and know that right now you are needed in VN more than anywhere. Take advantage of this time and do some of the trips you mentioned. You won't regret it! I'm glad you have your dad there to keep you company and help with the girls. I'm still praying for you!

Blah. That totally sucks. :-( I won't try to be cheerleader right now becuase it is perfectly ok to just be disappointed and get through that onto acceptance :-) Hang in there!
