i often think the most annoying song at Christmas time is the "twelve days of Christmas". beautiful, yes. fun, yes. long, yes. we decorated the Christmas tree last Sunday and we have beautiful ornaments to represent each of the days, but i don't understand when the twelve days begin. is it on december 1st through the 12th? does is start december 12th and go through the 24th? or the 13th to the 25th? who decided it was 12 days? soo many questions.

BUT the snyder family needs to start a new song today - 12 days of becca!! because it is just 12 more days until she is HOME!!!! don't get me wrong, she has absolutely LoVeD her time in the Holy Land. and we have LoVeD hearing her stories and hearing about the new friends she has made. but we are more than excited to have her back, making new recipes, randomly giving lizzy hugs, and her just being here!!!

so my version of the annoying Christmas song - which does it really have AnYtHiNg to do with the Savior's birth? - which will not be annoying because it will be about BECCA is going to go something like this:



on the first day of becca, our family has missed a lot, her loving and adoring her one niece!


on the second day of becca, our family has missed a lot, her 2 long, black, crazy, Sunday nap sox.
on the third day of becca, our family has missed a lot, her chatting with her 3 favorite sisters.


on the fourth day of becca, our family has missed a lot, her 4 sizes too big "house jacket" of mom's!
on the fifth day of becca, our family has missed a lot, her 5 american girl dolls (still dressed up for PEI).


on the sixth day of becca, our family has missed a lot, her 6 drawers of jesse (with all the random words everywhere that she loves!).
on the seventh day of becca, our family has missed a lot, her 7 family members.


on the eigth day of becca, our family has missed a lot, her love for 8 back-porch, bar-be-qued steaks (for the fam, not just her).


on the ninth day of becca, our family has missed a lot, her 9 money lectures.
on the tenth day of becca, our family has missed a lot, her 10 hundred scooter rides.


on the eleventh day of becca, our family has missed a lot, her 11 crazy recipe experiments.
on the twelfth day of becca, our family has missed a lot, her 12 shrimps, and counting...



can ya tell we miss her?!?!

oh my word! I am sorry I haven't checked out blogs forever, it is finals week and a little crazy. How perfect- who knew that all those things are so true- steaks, money lectures, all the like. Luckily it is only 7 days at this point now. Shukran Ktiir- this means thank you very much in Arabic and it is all I say now, I don't know even know an English thank you. Ok yeah I do I just typed it, just get ready to see some random Arabic words within our discussions. I'll be home for Christmas! (always wanted to say that and have it mean something) Love you!
