a sneak peak...




this is ONE of my most favorite pictures we DID NOT use on our Christmas card.
love.love.love it of karolina, and kaycee is just hysterical.

********************************
i look at my family. and i smile.
i take it in. we are not promised tomorrow.
i am so thankful for today.

so much tragedy in our neighborhood right now.
4 young kids in our school left to celebrate Christmas without their dad.
he was killed in a motorcycle accident sunday.
another local family grieving the tragic loss of 3 of their 10 children  in a car accident...
ugh.
i don't want to think about what could be around the corner, ya know?
but chose to stay blessed in this moment...
and pray for those who are saddened by the grief and loss that overwhelms them right now.

************************************
thanks scott, ang, addalie and jyla for making our pics a reality this year.
we appreciate each of you!

you should not expect to get our actual christmas card in the mail until the week of 12/18...
but it is so much fun running to the mailbox to see whose cards you get, eigh? :) 

~think~ i am done decorating, but still have a pile of things to make in my spare time. :)
winks and smiles.

Beautiful! I opted out of Christmas pictures this year because I couldn't even get two girls to cooperate - I'm impressed.
