Yesterday, Mikaela and I (and Silas) went on a girls day! We went shopping last year, and she decided that every year we will have a day just for me and her to go Christmas shopping. We had to take Silas because he's still nursing and he's only 5 months old. We had so much fun!! She used her own money and bought Silas and Eli a present. She had already bought Mercie one a week or so ago. I think it's so sweet that she thinks nothing of spending her money on her siblings. She just wants them to be happy. She bought Eli a 'sleeping costume' (aka pajamas) for his Build a Bear and Silas got a shirt from gymboree. For Mercie, she had bought some necklaces for her doll (which she's getting on Christmas). We went to the mall (which is an hour and a half away from our house), Target, Lifeway, Family Christian, Michaels, and Ross. Mikaela loves the Christian bookstores! She will look at all the devotions and books and flip through them, wanting everything!
I am so thankful for Mikaela and getting to spend time with her. Thanks to Rod for keeping Eli and my mom for watching Mercie. We had an enjoyable day and I can't wait til next year!
