Merry Christmas

I cannot believe it is Christmas eve! Where has the year gone? This has probably been one of the craziest years of our lives, but also one of the greatest!
We have our little Christopher with us, and he is growing up so healthy and stong! Emily, James and Spencer are the best siblings in the world to him. Every time they come near Christopher, not only do they light up when they see him, but his little face lights up as well, he loves to be near his sister and brothers.
I just hope that we can all look back at this past year with thankfulness, and gratitude for the blessings we have recieved. I think it is so easy sometimes to throw ourselves a little pitty party, and to dwell on all the negative things that have happened to us( Because I'm sure we all have that list)! But, if we really look back we can see all the many ways we have been blessed through the good times and the bad.
We are heading to California tomorrow to be with family.We are so excited! It has been years since we have seen some of them.The kids are so excited to hang out with all of their cousins,Rob and I are too. Robert has the greatest cousins in the world that he was able to grow up with like brothers and sisters.We get to see them all along with all their cute little kids, and we can't wait to play. We of course can't wait to see Rob's sister's and parents too. But all of this goes with out saying right?
Anyways, Love to all of you that read this blog!
Have a Merry Merry Happy Christmas!
