This Christmas...

So in response to the previous post, this blog will be under construction until the 1st of the year. It's going to take me a while to design the new one. In other news, we are ready for Christmas! All of the gifts have been bought and are wrapped under the tree. I can hardly wait for Christmas! I feel like a little kid all over again. I am so excited for Kate's first Christmas even though she won't have a clue as to what's going on. She is our most precious gift. She's all we prayed and wished for. I don't need anything else. Chris and I are gift givers. We love buying things for others and bringing joy to those we love. I wish we had more to give. That thought brings my mind to Christ. He sent His precious Son to die for me. His greatest gift, He gave up for you. and. me. I am super excited about His gift and so thankful. I will never have anything worthy enough to pay Him back. I am so thankful that there is no need to even try to. I can only imagine the joy it brings Christ when one of His children come back to Him and accept His gift, His Son. Our prayer is that many will come to know Him this Christmas season and accept the most precious gift ever. This Christmas is going to be an extra special one at our house....much to be thankful for!

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…

TwistShake Baby

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby!
