Elmo and Christmas Trees

We put up our Christmas tree early this year because we couldn't wait for Malia to see it. My niece, Megan (who went to China with us) and Malia helped. Malia was pretty fascinated with the whole thing and wanted to take the decorations off after we put them on. We also went shopping (Malia LOVES to shop) I saw a pair of Elmo slippers and since she is obsessed with him, I got her a pair. I really didn't think she would keep them on her feet, she is tripping and running into stuff because she puts her head down to watch Elmo when she walks. She takes a few steps then giggles then walks some more, she did this for over 2 hours last night. She was having so much fun but it was kind of heart wrenching because it made me think about what she would be doing if she were still in China and that got me thinking about all the other children that I saw in the orphanage. She wouldn't be having this much fun and I'm positive she would not be walking yet either. I just see all the pictures I have of her while she was in the orphanage and how she always had such a sad face in them and now she cant stop giggling and smiling. She is such a joy to have, I want to go back......
