This year we are trying to avoid the holiday crowds at all costs so we are trying to do as much of our Christmas shopping online. Last year the holidays were rough for us. We were expecting it to be our first Christmas with Grace, the wait was getting longer and longer and we we feared that we wouldn't have her home this year. We pretty much emotionally checked out for the holidays. This year as we inch closer we are feeling a little better about things. We picked up a little gift for Gracie for Christmas this year, it is a CD of Chinese lullabies.
