Just several pics from Christmas. It actually snowed Christmas Eve so we had a white Christmas!! Papa even spent the night because he went to Christmas Eve services with us. It was just raining when we left. We ate chili and looked outside and it was snowing. Snowing hard. The wind was blowing it everywhere. So Papa slept on the spare bed in Garrett's room and was here for Christmas morning! The kids opened presents then went outside. Sean is from Minnesota so the fact that we did not have a sled was just odd for him, but he used the lid to our recycle can and they had a blast. He then pulled out his ice skates and tried to ice skate on our street. It sorta worked! Ha! He also had a goal of staying in his PJ's for Christmas so he did all of this in his PJ pants! Ha! So all in all it was a great Christmas. I would be lying if I did not say I had a few "I wish" moments, but I really do have so much to be thankful for. Yes, I wish, but I also have to trust.

amen! love it! found a lot of time for wishing as well and remembered all my mom's in blogland who carry us thru those moments and offered up some weeping for you...finding it so hard some times to be celebrating the life within as we remember the life we are without. how about you?
