Can't You See, Dad?

Lexi was standing in front of our locked bedroom door, about to be charged with breaking and entering.  (Yeah, we have pretty much no privacy in our lives.  Our bedroom is grand central station around here.)  I noticed her fiddling with the lock and said "Lexi!  You can't go in there!  There are Christmas presents."  Lexi quickly replied, "I can't see."  Me, not catching the significance, "Um, that's right.  You can't see."  Lexi: "I blind!!!"  Suddenly it dawned on me.  "You're right Lex.  You're blind.  You go right on into the Christmas present room:)"



  1. Oh, that's so cute! Our bedroom is also grand central station, and there just aren't that many places to hide gifts for seven kids! I don't know how in the world you guys are pulling off Christmas after being gone to China. We were so busy last week with last minute shopping and everything else. I guess you have to just simplify and realize what really matters. Now that we're finally done, I wish we had another whole week until Christmas to read Christmas stories and watch Christmas movies and go caroling and everything else we didn't do much of!

    The other day Alaya (age 2) was having a bath and proceeded to hold her foot up to her hair and rub it around. She said, "I Sophi!" She constantly begs to "watch Sophi". Sometimes she picks things up with her toes and says, "I (am)like Sophi!"
    We're so glad you all made it back safe and sound! We can't wait to see you. It might be a while, I'm not sure. Can't wait for more pictures of Cali. ;)
