We got Olive the "Little People Nativity Scene" and decided that she needed to play with it all month instead of just on Christmas. She absolutely loved it! We were telling her the names of all of the people, which I am sure is sinking in, right!? But she started repeating "Baby Jesus" when she was holding him! It was the most precious thing! I tried to get it on video, but she wouldn't do it then, of course.

Checking it all out.
"Daddy, look! The donkey is who helped Mary get to Bethlehem."
I love her "concentration" look in this picture.
We love Christmas around here and we want to make sure we are focused on the REAL reason we celebrate and the greatest gift ever given.
Stephen and I were married in December of 2004. We met through a very persistent friend who insisted that if we met, we would get married. Sure enough, he was right and 7 months later we said I do! In the years since, we have suffered great loss but are learning daily to rely on God and each other, knowing that we can rise to use tragedy for good! We welcomed Olive Kay into the world in August of 2009 and our lives haven't been the same since! She is a firecracker and makes every day worth waking up for! On her 3rd birthday, we found out we were going to be blessed with another little one. Nora Kate joined our family in April of 2013 and has brought even more joy into our lives! We can't wait for the adventures we will have with the two of them.
