A Christmas Present for Lily

Thank you Amy, Ira, and Kenli for giving Lily an early Christmas present! She was so excited to open this up the day before my surgery, and it has provided her with lots of enjoyment since. This is the first actual present she has been able to open herself!
She was so anxious for us to get the box opened and get her Little People Nativity Set out.

The first thing she did was kiss every animal, and she made her sound for moo when she held the cow which goes something like this- Mmmmmmm aaaa!
We explained to her where Baby Jesus went, along with who the other people were. She kept holding up the baby and saying "Jesus". Then, she would give Him kisses.
She also loved pushing the Angel down and making the barn sing "Away in a Manger".
By the way, Lily also got her second real haircut. She got her sides cut because the hair on the sides was really thin as it came in. But, now, it is much thicker. She is already an expert at being at the beauty shop. I cannot wait until my hairdresser cuts it next time into even more of a bob cut.
Onto Mama: I am doing somewhat better today. I am not nearly in as much pain, but the pain is still there and pretty consistent. Lily is about over me being an invalid. She has gotten upset with us a few times today when she held up her arms for me to pick her up. Her little lips just quivered, and then the tears started to flow. But, I feel okay to get in the floor with her today. So, I have been spending a lot of time giving her hugs. Then, Jamie picks her up and places her in my pillow-lap! Please keep praying- my Lily needs her Mama back ASAP!

Still praying for your recovery! Sounds like you are doing well so far... hopefully the pain will completely subside soon.
Just think... only a few more days until Miss Lily is in your arms again! :o)
Love the pictures of her opening her present! I love the "Little People Nativity Set". We bought one for Lilli for Christmas, but I think we need to let her have it. It's too cute not to play with now... :o)
xo, Jen
