Merry Christmas!

Standard

We spent the morning together opening gifts – and re-reading the Christmas story that didn’t go so well the night before.  We started at 9 AM, and didn’t finish until about 11:30 – Chloe was a little slow. 🙂  Then, I cooked all the side dishes for Christmas dinner, and we headed over to Chris’ parent’s house for dinner, where we were joined by his Aunt Kathy from Williamsburg, VA.  I didn’t have my camera with me then, but as soon as I get some pictures, I”ll put those up! 🙂  For now, though, here’s our Christmas  morning at home – our last as a family of three! 🙂

Christmas morning – Chloe’s favorite gift is right in front – that Dora Backpack. 🙂  I can’t say enough how blessed we were this year – we are so thankful for all that God has provided for us this past year – and we can’t WAIT to get our new blessing in March. . . more on that later though! 🙂

Probably the easiest time I’ll ever have holding both my girls at the same time. 🙂

Her Dora backpack was filled with goodies – a new toothbrush, toothpaste, jelly beans, a few Backyardigans bath toys, and some jewelry.  She was pretty excited about it! 🙂

Reading her new Nemo book – it’s so nice for ME to have new books to read to her! 🙂

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!
