Belated Blogging

I suppose its time I returned to the blog world...at least to fill you in our Christmas and all we've been up to!
Most nights, lying on the couch, taking a bath or sleeping win out over blogging.
But at 38 weeks, can you blame me?!

So, Christmas.
It was wonderful, as always.
But I did feel a little overwhelmed by what needed to be done and more so by what I had to set aside as impossible for me this year.
In the end, everything worked out beautifully.
I even think the kids weren't terribly scarred by not getting to make gingerbread men this year.:)

Baby belly the week before Christmas. {35 weeks}

Even without my usual energy, we did get to delve into lots of fun holiday activities...

Christmas play doh - an all time favorite!
Church Christmas concerts and frilly dresses.
Gingerbread princess castles!!

And despite not be being able to make most of our gifts this year I did get around to a couple things that made me smile...


And a color match game for Taitum!

Then there were a number of heart warming moments...
Thankful sister hugs,
writing on packages that brought me to tears (again, I am very pregnant. Don't judge! lol)
And family fun! (Three cheers for Daddy being home for 2 whole weeks!)


Then we rang in the New Year 6 hours early and called it a year!

So our Christmas wasn't typical.
Much of our holiday was plagued with sick kiddos and restless nights.
And I am going crazy with the whole nesting thing.
But we were together and oh so blessed in a million ways!

So although its a little belated...

Merry Christmas
and
Happy New Year!!

I love motherhood.

We're a smiling family.

I'm a covenant keeper.

I love my husband.

I am above self pity.

I am a nation builder.

Motherhood=Adventure

Worth more than rubies.


“I am more convinced than ever that even in the midst of the mundane, burdensome, and oftentimes frustrating tasks of life allotted to me as a mother, God wants me to find his joy. He wants every single day of my life to be a celebration of his blessings, whether large or small. He wants me to celebrate life ~ the life He has given me.”

~ Sally Clarkson
