Merry Christmas!

These are the images that I've looked at over and over for the last few days that just scream "Christmas is here!"

One of my favorite things about Christmas is receiving cards in the mail from our family and friends. I love to display them during the month of December.





This year is complete with a "white Christmas". This is the view of the front of our house and lawn. I LOVE it! :)



And of course, I had to show our mess from wrapping gifts. Our basement was covered in wrapping paper, tape and bows over the last couple of days.







I simply had to share this photo from the calendar that hangs by our computer. I think it's one of the most beautiful photos I've seen of Mary and baby Jesus.



We just finished watching The Nativity Story which has quickly become one of my new favorite traditions on Christmas Eve. It really helps to put my mind in the right place and give Jesus the worship he is due.



Everything is finished now and all of our gifts are wrapped and under the tree.

I'm mostly looking forward to spending time with family and watching Elliana tomorrow as she soaks everything in. This has been the first year that she REALLY gets Christmas and she's beyond excited. There's nothing like seeing Christmas through the eyes of your child(ren).I wonder how late she'll let us sleep tomorrow?. :)

Merry Christmas everyone!



"Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”" LUKE 2:11-14

About Me

My Photo
I am a daughter of the King. Saved by grace. Follower of Christ. I love my God and I believe that he is faithful and true to his word! I'm still figuring out and trying to follow his plan for my life. I am a wife to my best friend Caleb, a mother to my miracle babies (they are my greatest joy and challenge), a sister and best friend to 3 passionate women, and a daughter to 2 amazing parents that continue to teach me what it is to be real and faithful to God and his word. I am lucky to get to be a stay at home Mom (thanks to God's provision). I love music, singing, coffee, cooking, baking, traveling, our beautiful state of Colorado, and mostly being with the family and friends that I love!

Husband, Caleb
Caleb is an amazing husband and father. He is always so good to me. He is my best friend. He is the romantic one. We love to laugh and spend time together. We've been married for 7 years and I just love that I get to spend the rest of my life with him.

Our 1st Miracle

Our 1st Miracle
Elliana Faith... God blessed us with our first miracle little girl in December 2008. She is sweet, smart, spunky, funny, strong willed, precocious, extremely outgoing, vocal and so full of life! She brings us so much joy.

Our 2nd Miracle

Our 2nd Miracle
Ethan James,.. God blessed us with our little boy in March 2011. Ethan was a bit of a surprise and an even bigger miraclle. Ethan is ALL BOY! He is very active, into sports and running around. He is also sweet, introverted, affectionate, and laid back. These days he often has us laughing, he's starting to show a little bit of "clown" in him. He makes our hearts happy too. :)

Our 3rd Miracle

Our 3rd Miracle
Emsley Jeannette... Our surprise baby girl was born on June 11th, 2013 and came into the world 4 weeks early. Her first 2 weeks of life were spent in the NICU, but due to God's hands and the prayers of many people, she grew quickly and came home to join our family! She is an easy, sweet baby and we are enjoying getting to know her personality.

We fight one day and then the next day we're fine. We're always loud and crazy when we get together. We're very passionate. We've been through it all together, lots of ups and downs. We're eachother's biggest supporters.
