After MUCH delay....

I am returning to blogging. Between finals, holiday preparation and celebration, Disney World trips, birthdays, and a husband who finally came home I have been extremely busy and blessed. I am in awe of how much my family is blessed and cannot stop giving thanks for all God has given us. I ended the semester with a 4.0 and left for Disney. We had an AMAZING trip and watching the boys at Disney was the only present I needed for Christmas. I cannot believe that I have been so lucky to get to go to that magical place time and time again and cannot wait until my next trip. Christmas was wonderful and we enjoyed spending it with both sides of the family. The boys both got too many gifts and had a great time with cousins. Mom and Dad got too many gifts too. Jack really seemed to start to understand the Santa concept and Sam was adorable at his first Christmas climbing on boxes and in and out of everything. My sweet nephew turned 5 yesterday....I can't believe it. And now we are about to start a new year.

So with that very abbreviated catch up....I am back. I will post a few pics from over the last few weeks and give a promise that my blogging will be more punctual from here on out. Thank you to those who inquired as to my whereabouts. Very sweet of you. I hope everyone had as blessed a holiday as we had.

the best part of Christmas!

Anyone who has little ones knows that no matter what you purchase, how beautiful the house looks, how tasty the cookies are, the only thing that matters is the empty boxes. Jack and Sam took full advantage of that as soon as we started decorating. They played like this almost the entire time we decorated. I love every little detail about Christmas.
