Christmas Blessings.

I feel blessed every day. I thank God every night for all the incredible gifts He has given to me and my family. There are so many things to be thankful for in my life. I have a wonderful husband, a strong marriage, 2 perfect and amazing little boys, an incredible family- in laws definitely included, a home, a strong faith, a church I adore, great friends, a voice I use to advocate for my sons and all those with disabilities, a crazy dog, great neighbors, 2 cars that are reliable, the chance to be a SAHM, food on the table, clothes on my back, a healthy baby growing in my womb, clean water, a safe neighborhood- and SO MUCH MORE.

Despite the fact I feel like I can't possibly be given any MORE to be thankful for blessings continue to come into my life. This Christmas we were blessed with an anonymous gift from a generous "Santa" and we are beyond blown away.

We were also blessed with seeing both our boys begin walking. They are now taking tentative steps throughout the house and are getting stronger everyday. Nothing could have made me smile more than seeing the looks on their faces when they gained one more step toward independence. Beautiful!

Finally, when my boys were about 5 weeks old my cousin came to our home to take some newborn photos of Casey and Connor. Unfortunately, the files were corrupted and we feared we would never see them. We decided not to get any other newborn pictures taken and I just figured they were forever lost. On Christmas Eve, my cousin- unbeknownst to me- slid a disc of 54 pictures in our diaper bag. They were some of the lost photos. She sent them around the world to a friend who is a computer genius and he was able to help recover them. We found them today.

I am going to share some of her work here because these are such beautiful photos of my miracle men when they were brand new to the world and all I saw in them was beauty and love. I still see those things but now they have fabulous personalities to go along with that and I see a much more round picture of who they are.

Enjoy these. I know I do.

God Bless.
