Christmas 2017 Memories

Christmas 2017 Memories

Christmas was so sweet this year! It's hard to believe how much has changed. We had just found out that we were having another GIRL around Christmas last year. It felt like life was in an upheaval. It was beautiful for me to understand the reality of the Prince of Peace we celebrate in a deeper way this year. Our morning was pretty simple, with simple gifts (some are even old handmedowns -eek!) but the kids will never know unless they read this one day - and I doubt they will care! My mom always did such an amazing job making everything about Christmas morning so magical, and I love trying to do the same for my girls with the presentation of things.

Meet Sammy

This is Samantha, or Sammy for short. She is my family's new German Shepherd. They got her about a week ago. I couldn't wait to go home and meet her this past week! She is such a sweet natured little puppy. I loved watching my little siblings play with her in the front yard. However, I have to admit that I'm so jealous. I don't just love doggies, I lurve them. Cats, no. Dogs, yes!!! It just so happens that a German Shepherd is exactly the kind of dog Jonathan and I want someday. Oh well! :) Until we do get a little pup of our own, I will enjoy coming home to visit Sammy.

Sammy has already mastered the game of fetch. :)

Welcome to the fam Sammy! We love you already!
