IT DOESN'T MATTER...:)

ANNA ON CHRISTMAS DAY 2007
IT DOESN'T MATTER...


WHAT COLOR YOUR SKIN IS...






WHEN YOU ARE SISTERS....:)








A short little story here...


Christmas was different when we were at the seminary, living on only what I made teaching my childbirth classes, Greg's very part time job at the seminary cafeteria, and the extreme generosity of friends, and loved ones...





We had a campus re-sell it shop. We found great deals here all through out the year... but at Christmas they had a morning where they put out all that they had stockpiled through out the year. Anytime they got a gift that was actually new or in really good condition they put it aside for this morning. In the early hours on that Saturday in December, you could go down to the
re-sell it shop and pick out one toy per child in your family. It was awesome.





I think it was our second year there and I stumbled upon this precious little black baby doll and I knew that was the gift for Anna. You see, I had a little black baby doll when I was little and it was one of my favorites.





Some of my friends sort of laughed when I picked it out. I really didn't think anything of it... I just thought it was precious. I did wonder a little what Anna would think of it.





The absolute best thing about it was that when Anna opened that present on Christmas morning... she just snuggled that baby doll and truly she didn't even notice what color it was. We actually had to point it out to her at some point...





She named that dolly SCHNOOKEMS... and she is SCHNOOKEMS to this day:)
