We have entered into

the world of NO at our house.  Every other word that comes out of Greta Rebecca's mouth is NO, NO, NO even when she means to say Yes.  It was cute in the beginning and now....
Anyway, Carson said, "Mommy, can we please teach her another word besides no."  haha.  Greta Rebecca says about 15 words already.  My girl is growing up way too fast.

This weekend was very busy for Carson.  Friday night was his Christmas concert for school which was cute.  His class sang two songs in sign language which was beautiful.  He did a great job.  On Saturday night, he was involved with a live nativity event at his school.  Greta Rebecca and Jonathan enjoyed the event as well.  I was busy inside the school serving cookies and hot chocolate. 

As I sit at the computer and write about Carson and Greta Rebecca my heart is heavy for the parents in Connecticut.  I can not wrap my mind around what happened at Sandy Hook School.  The only thing I can do is pray for eveyone involved.  But I will admit I am nervous about dropping Carson off at school tomorrow.  I already call the school once or twice a day now to see how he is doing ( Yes I am one of those parents).  I will do whatever it takes to make me feel comfortable and safe with him being at school.  Carson and I had a heart to heart today about the incident that occurred in Connecticut.  I did not go into a lot of detail however I explained to him that he had to listen carefully if the teachers tell him to hide, duck, or run.  He looked at me with wide eyes and said, "Ok".  I have to put my trust in God that everything will be ok.  But you never know....
