an amazing day...

i can't believe that christmas has already come and gone...for that matter, i can't believe that 2007 has already almost come and gone. what a year this has been. so bittersweet. there are chapters of this year that would be categorized as the best times of my life and then there are times that are most definitely branded on my heart as some of the worst.

most obviously, madeline is one of the greatest gifts of this year...of my life for that matter. as we get ready to celebrate her one year i get so sentimental. she still feels like she should be a newborn. she is taking unassisted steps and "talking" up a storm. i still can't get her to say "mama" but she yells quite a bit! it is so cute. she knows her signs because she responds but she doesn't always use the sign herself! eating is her FAVORITE thing to do and bananas make her go bananas!!!! we will have to try to get it on video so that we can share it!

the phone just rang and our realtor told us that the family that looked at our house today wants to come back tomorrow...i don't know how i feel about that. in one way, i just want to rip the bandaid off and get on with this thing...but in a drastic other way, i can't bear the thought of pulling away from this amazing home for the last time. not just our house, our home. one that i poured my heart and soul into in hopes of finding that great american dream of a lifestyle.

i crave normalcy. maybe this is God's way of molding me into a different being. either way, i feel so resistant. that is probably the major part of this lesson. it makes my stomach lurch to think that a month from now my geographical location may have changed. MY LOCATION...i have a hard time switching brands of toilet paper.

on a much happier note, the girls had an amazing day yesterday. ella is at an absolutely wonderful age and everything about this season has been magical to her. quite frankly, it is what i knew having children would be about...i felt like a child watching my two sweet daughters. i don't think it could get any better than that. i have wanted to be a mother since i can remember...so in all honesty, every day feels like a gift to me.

hope that all of our friends and family, near and far, had a merry merry christmas. we send love from our home to yours and we will keep everyone posted on the status of the price family. there is most likely a major move just on the horizon...
