Oh boy, it's getting crazy with anticipation around here with Christmas drawing near. There will be some last minute shopping when family flies in over the weekend but for the most part I think I'm ready. I know the kids are! Good gravy, are they ready.
Speaking of kids, I realized that I shared pictures of Emily but not the rest of my wonderful gang these past couple of posts.
Here is Emily, Jesse and Kevvy. (Kevvy has severe cerebral palsy. He loves to laugh and teaches us daily what not to take for granted.) And that's me attempting to keep Valentine in the picture before the timer goes off!
This picture was taken for my husband who is currently deployed overseas. It is our first year ever that "daddy" won't be home for Christmas.
It's very hard, but as much as we are missing him and counting the days 'til he's home, we are equally proud of him too. Please keep him and all military members that are serving overseas in your prayers.
On behalf of my husband, I'd like to say a public thank you to friends, family and strangers that have sent care packages, letters and goodies to those deployed overseas. It does not go unappreciated and truly helps the morale of these brave men and women who are so far away from home. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
