Our Family Christmas

We had a wonderful Christmas, our house was full of family and friends. So much to be thankful for. We spent a few days in sunny California where the littles went with Mama to spread a little cheer and fun. They were the best! We drove home Christmas Eve and everyone worked together to have everything ready for Christmas Day. It was amazing to have everyone under the same roof, if only for a day. Grateful to have Ammy and Papa with us. Shaelee said the Christmas prayer, with a little help from Emily. So sweet to hear. It was a great day. Oh, and Miss Shaelee doesn't need training wheels anymore! Grateful for a special family and amazing friends.

I love this boy, he makes me happy.  As do his siblings.  I am so blessed to be a Mama.  We are finished with soccer until after the Holidays.  This weekend all of the kiddos helped me get out our Christmas cards.  I am a little worried that some may have more than one card and some may have none.  We were lacking in quality control but not in having some chaotic fun.  This weekend we stayed close to home.  We hung out as a family.  We hugged our kids, a lot.  And we thought of those families who are changed forever.  We will continue to pray for them and keep them in our thoughts.
