What December looks like...

It's been a while since I've posted, but our home has been full this month of December.  As hard as it is to see time pass so quickly and the kids grow and change even more quickly, I love what comes with age - more understanding, more conversation, more wonder and awe of the spirit of this season.  And there has been plenty of all of these things.  New traditions have been started, old ones continue, and my love of sharing the meanings of the traditions we hold dear has not faded one bit.  Here is a glimpse of what the past few weeks have held for us!
Snow fun!

New traditions: Our Jesse Tree

Preschool Christmas programs (there's Braeden)!

Taking family Christmas pictures of good friends

Go Cowboys!

Christmas wonder.

Can I also just throw out there how thankful I am for social media?  I know it can be such a time suck, I know it can be an unhealthy thing, but I just have to say I'm grateful for the far reaching way of receiving and giving support, empathy, and encouragement from family and friends you never thought you'd see again.   These past few months have been full of an encouragement I've not known was possible except through Facebook.

Finally, the last picture I posted above, the one of Emerson and the tree, is up for votes on a local holiday photo contest.  If you wouldn't mind stopping by and giving me your vote (only if you believe I truly deserve it!) I would be grateful!  There are some pretty nice prizes up for grabs!  Oh, and you can vote once a day until the 22nd.  Thank you!  The link is http://laramielive.com/holiday-lights-photo-contest-voting-now-open/  .  It's the 5th photo and the caption is Kelly- Child by Christmas Tree.

I hope you are enjoying the season and breathing in the feeling of celebration.  I'm trying to savor every moment!

(P.S.  I'm using these last two pictures for my You Capture: Light post today!  Merry Christmas!)
