December 13th.

Family is a tricky thing. Feeling like you belong to a family (after marrying into it) is a long and often hurtful process.  It doesn't help when people say things to make you feel like less of a part of that family.

I'm so glad that Khai got an opportunity to participate in this year's Christmas concert at church.  I remember our Christmas concerts when I was a kid.  I loved them.  I loved practicing, I loved the goodie bags we got after it was over. 

And this last one is my favourite.  You can't see exactly the expression on his face, but I know it well, and I love it.

Khai got his first goodie bag after the concert. It wasn't stuffed full of peanuts, like they were in my day, but it was equally tasty and he was just as excited to get it as I was when I was a kid.

Can't wait until Declan starts sunday school in January!

It is really hard when you aren't accepted for who you are. I have felt that hurt for about 20 years from my mil.
