Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question.

Christmas, sunshine & palm trees...oh my.

We piled up the kids, the presents (Christmas for 5 kids and Birthday for 2 kids), and headed for sunny South Florida to spend the holidays with our family and friends. It's going to be a very Merry Christmas. Not to rub it in and I looked at the weather channel and it is going to be sunny and in the high 70's for the remainder of our stay... Marc and I plan to escape and hit the beach during nap time! When I grow up I want to be a "snow-bird".
The ornaments were waiting for the kids and Aunt Jenny made sure they were not all put on the same branch :)
The kids waited for Abue (Abeulita is Spanish for Grandma)
The girls were excited to see her car.

But no one was more excited to see her than Kobi.
If I didn't know better I would question if I had any genetic responsibility for this girl.
She is wonderful, giving, compassionate, kind and gentle. Just like her Abue (grandma).
Not to mention the fact that they are physical clones of each other.
They have something special these two, and I just love it.

however I know I am getting familiarity all the time by reading such fastidious articles.
