Merry, Merry Christmas!!

It’s hard to believe this time last year we were a family of three, flying back to Ireland and Norah was just a little turnip growing inside me. 2016 you were pretty great!

This Christmas was the first (with kiddos) that we celebrated in our own home, miles from family and friends. Yes we had to be the grown ups who cooked the turkey…and all the trimmings ourselves (happy to report we didn’t go hungry!). But I’m so thankful for these experiences and the memories we are creating together and these precious little hearts that have been entrusted to us.

It’s been such a joy watching Summer’s little mind ponder the birth of Jesus this year, or ‘the baby God King’ as she would say and we’ve loved reading to the girls the beautiful story which unfolded on that very first Christmas night.

Much love and many blessings in 2017!

John1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Christmas Tree Hunting

So this was us, a couple of weeks ago, kicking off the Christmas season with a new tradition and finding that perfect tree. We went to Oney’s family owned Christmas Tree farm, an hour out of the city. You know, it’s the kind that has horse drawn carriages, Mrs Claus in her North Pole House, pony rides and hot coco on tap. It’s every big kids dream come true! It was absolutely freezing out there but I’m so thankful for another year of tradition and memory making with this family of mine. Norah even wore her big sisters little red coat…you know the one she wore here on her first visit to the Christmas tree farm in N.Ireland!!!
