Joy & Light

{Our family: Christmas 2010}
{Happy Christmas!}

There is so much to document about these precious, busy, and memorable days. I could write until my fingers fall off. I am tickled pink to see all of this through Sookie's sweet and innocent eyes; she doesn't worry about what she's going to wear or if a hair is out of place, she doesn't stress over being exactly on time, she is able to be fully present in the moment and see explosive joy in everything and everyone.

Things are chaotic around here; we are spending time with family, trying to meet up with them all before they make their way back home, making sweet and yummy treats to give away, running around, delivering gifts, trying to catch a few rushed but still important words with each other, all while trying to keep up on laundry and have some cherished seconds as our family of three. Our house looks like the north pole was hit by a tornado, but my heart reminds me that is all part of the crazy Christmas dance. And we are beyond soaring with the knowledge of how lucky we are that we get to celebrate this all with a healthy girl and a momma with a functioning kidney.
