We decorated a little early this year. We just couldn't help it. When it starts to feel like Christmas, you must embrace the season, even if that happens to be before Thanksgiving. I've always thought of the two holidays so intermingled anyways so it's never bothered me. We had fun decorating our tree this year with music playing, hot cocoa and sugar cookies. My mom brought over some soup and I made some rolls and Andrea and her family came over and we watched Elf. It was perfect and I love filling my home with family and friends and feeling so much love. Nora gets to have her first Christmas and we couldn't be more excited to show her what it's all about. I love having a chubby new baby to share Christmas time with. Ryan and I keep saying who needs presents with a baby like Nora around! She is the best present of all!
Welcome to our blog! Hopefully you will enjoy looking at fun pictures and stories from our lives. Ryan and I got married in December 2005 and we have a son named Oliver, and two daughters Amelie and Nora. Ryan works as a Facilities Manager for Dreamworks while I get to stay at home with our beautiful kids. I also work as a birth doula which is something I love deeply. Life is pretty wonderful to say the least. Gratitiude is something we try to strive for in our family, and recognizing where and who those blessings come from. We can't wait for what the future holds for us...stay tuned for future adventures.
