Do you see what I see

It truly is the most wonderful time of the year and I am having a little bit of those post Christmas blues, I can't believe how fast it came and went. I am finding more joy each year, I think because we also celebrate Haven and Adam's birthdays around the holiday season. We really had the best Christmas and I was so excited for Haven that I couldn't sleep Christmas Eve (I felt like a kid again). Adam's brother and his family were in town and we did lots of fun things.

(This is the Place Monument Park, sledding, Christmas bell caroling, eating, playing the Wii)

I feel so much gratitude for all my blessings and for family and friends.
I hope you all had a Merry Christmas!!

Turning 2

We had a really fun birthday party with our family this year for Haven's big number 2. It was a "barnyard theme" with good old fashioned pin the tail on the donkey, duck shooting game and mud pie eating contest (ie chocolate pudding/oreo's with gummy worms) Haven loves to sing "Happy Birthday" and has been practicing for a couple months now. She loved the balloons and all her gifts.

Thanks everyone for helping her have a great day:)
