My New Daughter

It's been a busy month.

Yeah, that was an understatement..... anyhoo, what else is December, but busy?

Evidently I haven't been writing enough.

Well , here is the reason why....


I miraculously gave birth to an 18 year old AFS student from Chile!

P has been in town since Sept and is a friend of K's. Her first home was not working out for her, so now she is living with us for the next 6 months! We are very excited to have another girl to add to the Diva Den. Of course, with her arriving into our family the week before Christmas, she has been thrown into complete mayhem! She's met about 20 relatives, about 20 more friends and a whole church! She has been to one party and is going to another tonight! She is very sweet and has been such a good sport about us bringing her here and there.

I have to commend K and B for supporting the decision to "adopt" P into our family. We don't have the biggest house and can often be in each other's faces, so we really have to like each other. I am hoping that the next 6 months will be a positive learning experience for us all!

Tell her I said "hola" and feliz navidad.
How fun! Her real name is "P"?
Merry Christmas to all y'all.
