christmas: looking back

what a great holiday season we had!
busy, busy, busy making:

preparations
gingerbread houses
treats
memories
secret gifts/plans
wishes
decorations
wrappings
new traditions

and busy reading:
christmas stories
scripture stories


and busy playing:
with cousins
with family
and the occasional ds game

and busy gathering:
with family
with friends
with neighbors
with fellow church-goers

We truly feel blessed. This year has brought us much to be grateful for.
We've also seen struggles and challenges. We love our family and are so thankful to have the gospel of Jesus Christ in our lives. We would be lost without it.

I love your blog, your photos, and your decor. Simply breathtaking. I found your blog from Melissa's. {I married Rob's good friend, Tanner.} You have such a cute family. I haven't seen you guys since you were newlyweds and Bailey was a baby! Anyways, just wanted to let you know I stalk your blog for ideas. Also, I am dying to know where you got your adorable table cloth if you don't mind sharing. :) karnett17@yahoo.com
