Holly Jolly Christmas

Silent night, holy night
Son of God, love's pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth

We had a beautiful morning! Full of smiles, excitement, and love!

Santa left a few bites for Miss K. She made a request and it was granted!

Santa left a few notes for us - he's very thoughtful you know

A wondrous morning indeed!

The reindeer sure made a mess!

Landon was so into his presents this year! He unwrapped them all and even helped Grandma K and Papa Gary with theirs

Kisses! Kisses! Kisses!

Miss K's new baby girl!

This was a great Christmas filled with love and family. I tried my best to focus on making this a special day for Kennedy and Landon. Although it was hard at times without Jared, I had to be strong for our children.

Christmas morning, I was awakened to the sounds of giggling and laughter and one super excited little girl and boy. We checked out the cookies and milk that Santa enjoyed and the carrots that Rudolph himself had eaten (they even left a few footprints at our front door). As the house awoke, we opened up presents and watched an amazing video that my dad found on You Tube (a must see!) Christmas dinner was spent at my grandparents house where we enjoyed my grandmothers famous lasagna YUMO! We are blessed with an amazing family that is built around love - thanks for a beautiful Christmas!

Daddy will be home once again and we have such an amazing thing to look forward to. I want to thank all of my family and friends for the encouraging words and constantly trying to make this an easy transition - you guys are my ROCK!
