Christmas 2016

well.....it has been quite some time sweet friends! life has just been busy and instagram has been the new and easy way to document and share! but....i actually got out the 'real' camera and thought i would share some of our Christmas....so get ready for a whole lot of pictures,it has only been about four years so I'm not sure i remember how to do this blogging thing ;)
sooooo.....that is a bit of our Christmas at home. we still have a few trees up, just not ready to let go of all the magic just yet ;) also for any new friends to this blog.....just a little back story. i started this blog on may 17th, 2010 to share the birth story of our magpie. she was born with down syndrome and i wanted to share the story of how even though we were saddened at first, it didn't take long for the clouds to part and see what a gift HE had given us. our girl is now seven years old and her smiles and sweet spirit, well a blessing indeed. i have always said she fixed me when i didn't know i was broken. she is truly our special gift from HIM. this social media journey started because of our sweet girl with the almond shaped eyes, the cutest dimples and the smile that makes it impossible to not smile back. then we started documenting the addition, and friends would ask to see more of the house.....oh and i also owned a shop for almost 11 years and practiced design and have always loved to make a house feel like a home....my favorite house to make a home our own of course :) so started out sharing about a magpie, and then started sharing our very LONG journey of building our home, and we have been so blessed by so many amazing friends along the way. i hope to get back to blogging....just bits of our life and home and the how beautiful life can be with a child with special needs. i have always loved to look back at the blog.....it is kinda like our journal that i love to open up and flip through the pages. and if I'm having a bad day and open this book, well it doesn't take long at all to be reminded how truly blessed we are.
