Merry Christmas

The girls are nestled all snug in their beds...waiting for Santa to come tonight! Santa agreed to come a little early since we'll be in the hospital on Christmas for Mila's heart surgery recovery!

Zoya has been so excited and trying to open the presents under the tree for a couple days now. She keeps saying "Santa" and signing "presents" and then saying "TREE!" Tonight she prepared a plate of cookies for Santa and almost started crying when she realized they weren't for HER! So I had to give her a Hershey kiss to get her up to bed LOL. It took a bit for her to fall asleep as she was up there yelling "HO HO HO!" She knows tomorrow is a special day!

We decided to do 3 gifts for the girls this year...hey it was enough for Baby Jesus so it's enough for them.....and then Uncle Bub rolled into town with his sleigh full ;) He spoils his girls!

Truly we are so blessed this Christmas. Blessed to have so many amazing family and friends who are supporting us in every way imaginable. Blessed to have two beautiful daughters who make every day so special. Blessed to be spending Christmas in the hospital. Yep, that's right, blessed to be spending Christmas in the hospital. Because that means our jelly bean will be on the mend. That means she got the greatest gift of all....a chance at a new, healthy life. A gift of health and life is the best gift of all!

  1. Love the picture of "Rudolph". With the 3 gifts, too bad the girls aren't old enough to appreciate the one thing that would make it all right-gold!
    Merry Christmas to your three ring circus, Basile family.

  4. Merry Christmas!! I keep wanting to comment on Mila's page just to let you know I'm praying for you all and especially for sweet Mila and her surgery next week, but for some reason blogger won't let me comment unless it's a pop up window! So I'll comment here, and say at the same time that Zoya is just getting so big and she's beautiful and too stinkin' cute! :) I'm wishing you all a very MERRY early Christmas and a very BLESSED Christmas next week when sweet Mila is in the hospital.

  5. Definitely the best little reindeer I've seen. Merry Christmas Zoya, I hope that you had a great day filled with lots of love and laughter.
