Christmas Cookies

That time that Camp told us he was Santa and insisted that 
everyone sit on his lap and tell him what they want for Christmas.

The Night Before Christmas

Ryan's parents gave us the book "The Night Before Christmas" with a recording of Ryan's dad reading it for the kids. Camp is obsessed with the recording and plays it over and over and OVER again. If you ever want to find Camp, just follow the recording of Grandpa's voice.

Many of my friends have heard me talk about my good friend Joanie. Joanie is quirky, independent, strong-willed, & has taught me lessons on patience comparable to that of motherhood. I recently read a quote that said, “It is usually through another person that (God) meets our needs.” I think sometimes he does that in unexpected ways. Joanie was definitely sent into my life to challenge & refine me. She has taught me about compassion & understanding & has played an important role in teaching my kids to serve. I hope everyone is lucky enough to have a “Joanie” in their life at some point. Seeing that smile on her face today kinda made it all worth it. #lighttheworld

The "Boney"

He has recently become obsessed with his “boney” (beanie). He wears it all day & the second he’s done with his bath he puts it on again, sleeping with it all night long. Sometimes he’ll even wear it with a “hook” (hood) if his jacket has one. I guess he won’t be needing a haircut this winter.

Because of Him

We finally had to force them to stop looking at pictures to get the tree decorated. This year had its ups & downs but taking the time to review our year in pictures always reminds us how blessed we really are. I’m grateful for this time of year dedicated to celebrating the one who made this beautiful life possible. #becauseofhim

A New Tradition

We started a new tradition of a movie and Chinese takeout on Thanksgiving Eve. 
I think the kids were most excited to be able to use their chopsticks.

Just A Guy In The Shower


Feeling Old

Maeli found an unopened disposable camera at my parents’ house last week. She looked confused as she tried to figure out how it worked. It took a while to explain that you can’t just take 20 pictures at a time or even see the pictures until you take it in to get developed. Nothing makes you feel old quite like having to explain what “film” is to your kids...
