It's been awhile since I have written over here! This Christmas was so special and filled with so many sweet memories and moments that I will hold dear to my heart forever and ever.
We surprised the kids with 3 new pets! Ainsleigh and Apple got two new orange Siberian kittens ( Arlo and Simon....lovingly named after the Good Dinosaur and Alvin and the Chipmunks) and Aiden got the chameleon he has been asking for!
Never could I ever forget their reactions when they opened up a box of sweet little orange kittens and when Aiden turned the corner and saw his new tank + lizard. Surprises seriously are the best!
The kittens have been SO precious- they are always asleep cuddled up with the girls and have the most precious, sweet demeanors.
This little miss had her very first Christmas and smiled the while way through it! She's 5 months old ( which I literally cant believe) and she's just as sweet as pie. We are all literally obsessed with her and I truly can;t imagine our world without her in it!
We desperately soaked in all the family time while the kids were home for break. All my little chickens under one roof is when my heart is most content.
All of the Christmas traditions that I grew up doing as a child, we have passed on to this sweet family of mine...Christmas cookies, candlelight Christmas Eve service, stockings the night before, Gingerbread houses, hot coco as we put up Christmas lights, Christmas movies and music, the list goes on...
I will never have the words of what these people mean to me. The love is such a deep-gut love that I know I can never explain to them. My gratitude is overflowing.
You guys have made all my dreams come true.
