Christmas was wonderful. We had time with our families. We ate a lot. We relaxed a little. We snuggled our sweet girl. We received gifts way beyond our needs. We are so blessed.
Our little Christmas was our first with our daughter. I am thankful she wasn't mobile this year and into the tree and the presents (especially because our tree tried to fall over one day... not kidding. not fun.). I am glad that she wasn't in the mix this year. I needed one year of her snuggled on my chest while all the nieces and nephews tear open paper and swoon over gifts. I needed her to get stuffed animals and clothes and toys that she doesn't really care about... yet. She will love them and appreciate them. She just doesn't yet. This mama needed that. I needed it to be slow this year.
We spent Christmas sick this year. Lucy came down with a cold on Thursday. It moved to Cam and finally to me. Lucy had a fever on Christmas Eve. No pretty Christmas dress at church for this girl. She and I stayed home and snuggled.

We have some big announcements in 2012. Things we aren't ready to share yet, but things that God is doing to completely change our lives. I'll share here when the time is right. For now, please feel free to pray for us. We need to trust in the Lord and walk in faith to where He is leading.
I also realize I haven't posted in a long time, so I am very behind on pictures. I'll be posting some pics from the last two months. For now, here is sick Christmas baby. (she's better now)
