December 30, 2015~Pre Christmas Happenings~ I really love Christmas and all the fun but I stress myself out a bit I got started a bit earlier this year and tried to get it all done in a more timely matter it helped a bit…. but I have to quiet my thoughts each day approaching Christmas and remember why we truly celebrate it Christ and Christ only all the other is so much fun but I think that is why I get stressed I try to make it “great” for everyone…. instead of focusing on Christ I am going to do better next year!!! So here are a few pics from the week before Christmas:) My sister and brother in law niece and her family came over the weekend before Christmas the crew Janie with her 2nd cousin Max he is so very sweet to my kiddos and just a year and a half older than John David funny how life turns out Max is my niece Andie’s son she is my niece from Jeff’s side of the family… Andie was Allie’s very first babysitter when she was 12 years old now we have kids around the same age as her own mine being younger joke is on me!!! hahaha my sweet Andie with her daughter Lily they look EXACTLY alike!! Lily is 9 which is how old Andie was when she was in my and Jeff’s wedding:) my peeps.. never a dull moment with these 2!! truly this is so funny!! I hear klunking and turn around to see M in these shoes every.single.day funny thing is that Kendyl had to wear these in a wedding wonder why they ended up in my house??? ha I don’t even remember where Janie and John David were but Madeline and I found ourselves at home alone one day… this girl LOVES to be in the kitchen (unlike her mother…I do it out of necessity:) she was so very excited to get to cook with me by herself I love love love time alone with each of my kids! this day I will remember forever!
