    Christmas at our place

    I thought I’d share a few brief glimpses of our first Christmas with our baby boy. It was crazy as usual with seven family get togethers to rush around to over a few days. I thought Christmas at six months pregnant was exhausting, Christmas with a nine month old bub is insane!

    Off to find more wrapping to eat

    From our family to yours, we hope you had a blessed Christmas surrounded by those that you love. 2010 brought me more joy than I could have ever imagined. God has blessed me with friends and family who fill my life with love, and with the most divine little red headed creature who has redefined existence. Love has filled every corner of life that wasn’t filled with something important. It has pushed the edges of life out beyond recognition.
