Merry Christmas!

I guess I shouldn't be complaining about Mom not posting! We're going to visit Aaron's family in TN for Christmas and it's possible I'll post before we leave...but if not, Merry Christmas to you all! I'll try to take lots of pictures while we're gone to share when we get home.

The above picture was taken on Thanksgiving -
Esther all dressed up to go with me to the Ladies Christmas Tea!
It's hard to get her to lay still and smile for a picture...

We thought, since Esther and I were dressed up anyway, we'd take some family pictures, but we didn't like how any of them turned out - mostly because Aaron has jaundice and some swelling in his throat and felt he looked almost as sick as he really is.
For those of you that don't know, Aaron came down with a fever about 3 weeks ago - eventually we went in to the hospital and they told us he had mono and strep throat! The fever is gone, but if you look up a list of the symptoms/results of mono, he's had almost every one of them in turn. So please pray that he'll heal quickly and completely!

Even though Aaron's not feeling well, Esther seems to be doing just fine - we weighed her the other day and she was 9 lb. 10 oz. and she's getting more aware all the time :)

Someone gave her this jumper that says "little shining star" and I thought that was cute because the name Esther means "star".

Sorry these pictures are so dark...they're just a few of her kicking and making faces.
