When life gives you lemons. . .

Standard

eat them! Here’s some photos from Christmas Eve – we spent the day taking some goodies to friends, then we went out to an early dinner at Olive Garden. Here’s a few pics from the day and a short video – just so you know – in the video, Chloe is (trying to) say “yum, yum, yum! delicioso!” 🙂

Chloe’s knocking on Olive Garden’s Door – so polite, you know. 🙂

A great smile for Mommy!

Oh. bless the hearts of all the wonderful restaurant owners who think kids should have crayons and coloring sheets while they wait.

Well, I go to Olive Garden for the breadsticks and salad – Chloe goes for the breadsticks and lemons.

“Yeah, mom, I’ll just take these – you enjoy your lasagna.”

Chloe’s first Christmas gift from this year.

She was soooo tired after our long day, that she didn’t really care too much about opening any gifts.  Guess this’ll change after a year or two. 🙂

She really did like her new Christmas Story Book, and the accompanying paper doll set, but she was really tired.  So, we just read the story again the next morning. 🙂  Honestly?  This was kind of a repeat of last year.  Maybe falling asleep during the Christmas Story will the the tradition of our family for awhile. 🙂

About Kim

I am a sinner, miraculously saved by grace, living by faith, and pressing toward the mark of being more like Christ. I absolutely love being a stay-at-home mom! I'm also a caterer for a few weddings throughout the year, a baker, and a party planner. And I love to play in other people's kitchens as well as my own! My husband, Chris, just finished his studies for his MA degree in Pastoral Studies. He's a wonderful (and super smart!) daddy - and the most loving and supportive husband. My two beautiful daughters, Chloe and Kami, are the joys of our lives! We pray that they both would be greatly used of the Lord. Throughout their short time here on earth, we have learned so much about ourselves, our God, and the gratefulness we have towards our own parents, who raised us in the ways of God's Word. Our third unborn child is a blessing as well - even after its recent pre-diagnosis of Trisomy 18, or Edwards Syndrome. This blog has kinda turned into a little journal of sorts of our dark journey down this rather uncommon road. I stay busy cooking, cleaning, gardening, and raising the plants I killed back to life, and homeschooling. I blog when get the chance. :) We are always happy to have visitors, so please stop by anytime! Although, if you do give us a call first, we'll make sure to have some fresh cookies and sweet tea available when you arrive!
