Looking back on the year of 2013, the one thing that stands out to me is how deeply blessed I am. I have the most wonderful husband and I love him so much. His heart is so big and so full of love for our family.
So, instead of using today to reflect on the year in its entirety, I am soaking up all the ways I've been blessed in 2013 and anticipating what God has ahead for our family.
PS: I plan on using this more in 2014 :)

Lazy Thursday

I'm having a lazy day. I wish the kids and I were out taking advantage of all the leftover snow, but, the little girl is sick with a viral infection. I'm praying that none of us catch it. I've been advised to keep them separated. Ok doctor. That's easy. So far, the six year old's new birthday presents are keeping the boys entertained, except that our house now looks like Kevin McAlister has been here. While they're making a battlefield of the entire downstairs, the little girl and I are cuddled up on the couch watching princess movies. We've been pretty lucky, lately, with our well streak...I sure hope she feels better soon. 
I've been enjoying looking at all of the beautiful, festive homes on my favorite blogs. Dixie Delights is one of my favorites to look at for ideas during the holidays. She goes all out at every holiday. So fun! Perhaps I'll get around to taking some pictures of our unprofessionally holiday-decorated home sometime soon.
I finished up Sadie's Christmas and Santa yesterday and still have the boys' left to do. We've always been last minute Christmas shoppers and I'm completely ok with that. This year we're getting the boys bikes. I'll also be checking out JM Cremps. They always have super cute little boy wonderfulness.
This year, Sadie's getting a dollhouse. I'm not sure who will be more excited- me or her :)
Well, I better get back to "Tangled"!
