A Few of my favorite things...

Completing a state-to-state move, being 7.5 months pregnant, and having my husband work out of town for 14 days this month has made this holiday season a bit different than most. Even still, we are enjoying our new home and enjoying several days together as a family this week.

It has been so fun to share this Christmas season with Jason and Alex. We are grateful for another little one who will join our family soon. Especially during this season, we are reminded that God is the giver of life. So many years ago He sent His own Son to earth as a baby...To live as a Man and as God...And to lay down His life so that we might have a new one. This season, above all else, we are grateful.

Here are a few of my favorite things this season. I hope you are making your own holiday memories this year with lots and lots of favorites.

One of my favorite photos from Alex's Christmas photo shoot.

The live wreath on my door. I love the real ones for the way they smell and look.

Pivner. This is a new favorite for me - a Danish cookie specifically made at Christmas time. It's a longtime tradition in Jason's family and now, ours. Thanks to my mother-in-law for the family recipe!

Christmas cards received from friends - many of them welcoming us back to Texas.

Fresh flowers delivered to me when my husband was out of town. Oh sweet man of mine!

This tiny little stocking on our tree, in honor of Baby #2.

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas week!

I can't post on your other site, so this is in response to your last post on the family blog...

I just can't believe this story!!I'm so sorry that these were the circumstances you found out such a sweet piece of news! Hopefully your reaction made a profound impact on that tech. What did Jason say? Oh well, what can you do at this point but get ready for baby boy #2 - how exciting! Alex will be such a great big brother, and there will be so many brotherly stories through the years. Congratulations! Laura
