Christmas and Maggie's Broken Hearing Aid

Maggie's BAHA ( hearing aid) broke the Friday before Christmas. We had to send it off to get fixed on Christmas Eve and were so thankful we bought the extended warranty to cover things like this. Her Baha was very expensive and essential to Maggie's everyday life. I would describe it as almost like another limb or a part of her body. It has become such a help to Maggie that she really doesn't live in a hearing impaired world. Her Baha allows her to live in a hearing world. And that is just amazing ! 

So, we all had Christmas on Christmas Eve so Maggie could hear. We knew once we sent off her hearing aid, she would be distraught ( and she was ). But, we made it through and received a brand new fixed Baha  four days later. Maggie said " I hear LOUD" when we put it on her head !
 And here is what Maggie and the boys got for Christmas :

A new book - No, David ! by David Shannon.  Maggie thinks this book is so funny.

A bath tub fishing set. The fish have magnets on them and so does the fishing rod.

Another bath tub toy - Tub Tunes. It's a set of flutes that you play in the tub. Maggie loves them ! And some more Loving Family dollhouse furniture : The baby room.

 Maggie loves playing with her dollhouse and all the tiny furniture and people. She's got a ton of it and she plays with it more than any of her other toys.

The boys got a Kindle Fire HD.

They loved it !

Look at those smiles !

 Everyone got stockings filled with goodies on Christmas Day.

Maggie's was filled with Pez candy and a new princess coloring book and a new box of colors.

I hope and pray that everyone had a wonderful Christmas ! I spent a lot of time resting and reading my new Kindle ( Chuck and I got one too).  And loving on my family.
Happy New Year !

Gotcha Day Anniversary - Three years ago !

Today we celebrate Maggie's Gotcha Day. Three years ago we met Maggie for the first time. She was tired and cranky and we were overwhelmed with how much we loved her. 

Maggie has blossomed into such a beautiful, sweet and silly little girl.

But, she is quick to say that she is a big girl !
Four years old !
