Christmas Around Our House

I was looking around our house at all of our Christmas decorations and I would look at something and think to myself that is my favorite decoration... no that's my favorite. What can I say I love all of my decorations each piece has a special meaning or it's something that makes me happy. Then I started thinking about what Christmas means to me.
First it is the MAGIC of the little baby in a manger. (Jesus is the reason of the season ya know)! It's also the JOY of decorations, lights & glittery things. It's the HOPE of being able to share all of these special things with a child of our own one day. It's the HAPPINESS you see on your niece's & nephew's faces when they open their gifts. It's the LOVE of time spent with FAMILY & FRIENDS. That is what this time of year means to me. Enjoy pictures of our home & the things that are priceless to us.
Merry Christmas from our home to yours!

I love this man so much & cant wait to grow old together. He makes me smile everyday, he makes me laugh when all I want to do is cry, he picks me up when I'm down. He is the love of my life & the light in my eyes. I love you so much babe....

Just Sayin'

"By adopting a child and helping them reach their potential, they help us reach ours. An adopted child is not an unwanted child; to the contrary. They are a child who was searched for, prayed for, cried for, begged for, received by arms that ached, making empty hearts full. Love is meant to be shared" (Author unknown)

Our weekend vaca...

This summer we went to the beach with Michael's side of the Family for a long weekend getaway. We had a beach front rental in Surf Side Beach. It was such a fun & relaxing weekend. We hung out on the beach, collected sea shells, buried each other in the sand, made castles, flew kites & had an amazing time with our nieces & nephews. I also went on my first deep sea fishing trip. We went out about 25 miles to sea & it took 1 1/2 hours to get to our spot. We tried to catch Mahi Mahi but they were not biting we did however hit the jack pot with Red Snapper...
