. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Merry & Bright

Merry & Bright

cards from Tiny Prints

I couldn't be more excited for a holiday season than this year.  I haven't done Christmas card pictures for the last few years and am so happy we did them this year.  


I'm thankful for a beautiful, healthy baby girl who has so much joy and brings us more happiness than I could have imagined.  The other night after we put her to bed Chris and I watched this little video of her laughing at least ten times and couldn't stop talking about how lucky we are. 

I'm thankful for a husband who tells me daily how much he loves me, who makes me smile, takes care of our family and after eight and half years of marriage continually wants to work at and strive to make our marriage stronger.  

I'm thankful for this week to spend with my family and soak in all the memories we get to make this year. 

Mostly importantly right now I'm thankful for this time of the year to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.  It's so easy to get lost in all the wonderful things about this time of the year like traditions, Christmas presents, baking, decorating and making memories.  Which are all things that I love and are special to me.  But I don't ever want to forget the most important reason for celebrating. 

I plan on spending time this week thanking God for sending his Son, for this season of joy, and for blessing me more than I can imagine. 

Merry Christmas!
