The Suita Family wishes everyone a very Merry Christmas. For the first time in 20 years, we will not be hosting Christmas Eve dinner, it will be at my sister's house. Although it felt odd, I am very grateful to not have all the extra work on Leah's first Christmas home. I will be able to enjoy it peacefully, as the Birth of our Lord should be celebrated.

Leah started preschool in November. it was traumatic for mommy, but we knew it would be good for her and she really missed being around other kids. She only goes 3 times per week for 3 hours. She cried for only a few minutes at drop off but her teacher says she would be fine the rest of the day. It took exactly 4 weeks for her not to cry when dropped off. She seems to really like it now. these pictures are of her first day getting ready to leave the house for school, like a big girl, with a back pack.

We took advantage of great weather and drove to Metro Zoo. Leah's favorite part were the flamingos at the entrance. She kept pointing at them and didn't want to leave the area once we had had enough of "flamingo watching"

Leah was a fairy princess for her first Halloween. It was a crazy day. We tried to fit in too many things. We went to Weston Town Center with friends, Lidi and David, no sooner than we get there, which was a challenge to begin with, we realize, the event for the children, music, etc, is OVER! After wrestling the kiddos back in the stroller, it starts to suddenly and out of nowhere POUR! Needless to say, we left Weston and headed for home, where there was no sign of rain. Ed decided to take Leah trick or treating in the wagon. That was fun but Leah was clueless as to why we had to stop in every house and for no reason at all people were giving her candy we were not allowing her to eat. Back on the homefront Michelle was preparing the house to frighten the 4 children that came to our house this year. Underneath her scary Grudge costume, she was dressed in her real costume for a party she went to later that night with friends.
