Having a strange family that no one really understands unless you know us... perfect... It draws us all closer and brings us all together. So thankful for my amazing family this Christmas. There are so many fond memories that I have with my parents and my brothers and sisters on Christmas: reading the Bible together and finding the nativity scene characters hidden all around my house, talking all night with my brother because the excitement of Christmas was killing us, waking up to a snowy Christmas, spending Christmas Eve Eve with our close friends. I am so happy that I have what so many people dream about and what so many people cant understand- a family that loves to be together, sooo full of love and dedication for each other and our families.
I am so blessed to have an amazing husband who is the best father for my children that I could have ever asked for. Adding him to the family has been so seamless and perfect, he loves my family as his own and they love him sooo incredibly much. He considers my brothers his close friends!!?? We are soo perfect for each other and Im so thankful that God brought us together and has blessed our marriage so much. Next Christmas we will have a second little baby! How did I get so grown up? Haha I love that i can carry on my Christmas traditions with my husband and that our kids can experience the joy that I that I shared with my brothers and sisters on Christmas!
Last night we went to the Botanical Gardens in Encinitas to see all of the gorgeous scenery lit up. There was a Santa, food, and live music. All my family and my aunt from Arkansas came, her daughter and granddaughter from Seattle came, my Uncle and Aunt, my cousins, my grandparents... It was so nice to all walk around and see each other during the best time of year!
