Merry Christmas to All

I wish you and your family peace and joy as we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. This year has been filled with many milestones for my family. 

In April, on Ladybug’s 5th birthday, we received the final order of adoption for Bumblebee. 

In May, I started my new career as full-time Mom to my girls.  I also started my blog. 

In July, my husband was elected the Grand Knight for his Knights of Columbus council. 

In August, we began our home schooling adventure as Ladybug started kindergarten.

In October, Ladybug learned to ride her bike without training wheels.  Not to be outdone, our three-year old graduated from her tricycle to a 12 inch bike.  Soon, training wheels will be a thing of the past for her too.

This year has been a challenge for our family. We have learned to live abundantly on much less than last year. Most of all, we have learned to trust God and follow the Holy Spirit.

Thank you for being part of this wonderful adventure.

Merry Christmas to all!
