A Big Very Merry to You All!!

After agonizing over "the card" for several weeks...I decided to go with pictures from the professional. I used some of the images that Debbie took in Williamsburg in the fall. I love how the cards came out...she captured Lia perfectly!

"Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful." ~ Norman Vincent Peale

And now as we prepare to experience the magic of this very special time of year, I wish you all peace, happiness, health and prosperity. Thank you for taking the time to share in our lives. It is hard to believe that I started this blog almost a year ago. It has changed my life in ways I never would have imagined. I have enjoyed getting to know so many new friends and I consider you all a blessing. Best wishes for a wonderful holiday season!

Think I started my blog about a year ago too and it's been so much fun! Plus, I'm sure I wouldn't have any record of anything we did all year without it!

Wishing you and Jim and Lia the Merriest of Christmases!

What a beautiful photos for a beautiful card! Merry Christmas from our family to yours!

Thank you for the very loving and "understanding" comment you left on our blog. It means so much to me...that others out there actually get it. We are so truly blessed and I do treasure my girls more than my life itself. I can't even begin to describe it. Yes, there are days I want to crawl back into bed & dream that I am still that 20-something girl that only has to care about what outfit she will wear to work that day and where the office might want to step out for lunch...but when I think about how "uncomplete" my life was back than...I quickly pull myself back and SO KNOW that this is where I need & WANT to be. Again, thank you for your beautiful words...there truly mean so much to me at a time like this...

(We are having some medical issues with Francesca...and I am praying that today all goes well...)

HUGS to you & your family! And Merry Christmas!
