A Special First Christmas…

This was our sweet sweet boy’s very first Christmas!

KJ 8 months

Of course I was prego when we came “home” to be with my family last year, but obviously not the same.  I felt the most excited about Christmas ever it felt like…I am over-joyed and thankful for our precious little one and was so happy for him to experience Christmas for the very first time.  I know, he is only 8 months old and he won’t remember and won’t care… but hey, no matter! We had a blast!

He LOVED his stocking…

was not so much on opening gifts yet, but loved the wrapping paper, boxes and just playing with whatever was inside…

even the practical pack of bibs…

notice the red sweater body suit… guys hated it, girls loved it! 🙂

and the bows… he loved the bows…

ohhh the bows…

did I mention he LOVED the bows?

and the lights…

oh mom, love these lights…

Anyways, we had a super fun Christmas and entire holiday season as a matter of fact!

Merry Christmas!

With love,

our little family of 3

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

A Foggy morning with the hope of spring!

It is a foggy morning around these parts, but the promise of spring is in the air! We have had a few warmer days combined with some good rain which has encouraged some green to come out! This is really exciting because I love spring!  The warmth from the sun the past few days feels so nice… so nice that it is hard to stay inside and get things done!  I love how the sun warms me and puts a tingle on my face!  The weather people tell us not to get our hopes up about warmer weather sticking, but how can I not? I love it! Anyhow, we will enjoy it while we can and if it is not here to stay, I know it will be back!

The warm weather is especially welcomed because we have had a lot of cold weather (yes, in Florida)! We’ve experienced many nights near or below freezing along with days of needing at least a jacket, if not a coat too!  I am used to colder and harsher winters…moreso used to SNOW which brings with it shoveling, scraping etc.   Locals have said it is a colder winter this year than usual. There has been longer spells of cold and it just hangs on longer.   I am still thankful to have a break from the elements though!  Snow, ice and freezing  temperatures most of the time is a winter I am used to but I have to admit, I kind of miss it!  Something I am not used to however ,  is the “wet cold”  here… it has more of a “bite” and it does not have to be too cold to feel it! Enough about the weather… there are many many other great things to do and talk about – like things we CAN control! 🙂

I hope this finds you enjoying your February day!

Merry Christmas 2010

Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone has a wonderful and very merry Christmas “white” or not!  White… rainy… warm… cold… hot… or any combination!

This Christmas…

I hope this  finds you well

I hope people are able to enjoy time with loved ones as this never happens often enough

I hope that we can all stop, relax and enjoy some of the simple yet priceless things in life away from the hustle and bustle

I hope that this finds everyone thankful for the blessings in their lives

I hope this finds us in awe of … Christmas
