Scenes from December

Here are a few pictures from December.  
I didn't take as many this year.
There was something in me that just needed to let be.

We get into it around here, and it gets all over us.

None of these children are mine, but none need to be for me to love this picture.
That smiley one in the middle...she's ours.
We celebrated our 11th anniversary and escaped for three days.

Church friends...I have visions of these girls in youth group together.
The stomach flu invaded our house during Christmas break.
Then, Ella.
I am so thankful for modern medicine and iv's.
Ella spent part of a night in the ER.
She was a happy kid the next day. 
It took me much longer to get over.
Our Christmas was a quiet one.
Exactly what we needed.

With Talia's tin foil wrapped gifts that she picked up around the house.
Uncle Travis got a piece of paper and Bruce got a previously viewed When Harry Met Sally dvd.
We are putting 2011 to bed tonight.
I happily wave it goodbye.
Sleep in heavenly peace old year.
Someone recently reminded me that people still kiss at midnight on December 31st.
I had forgotten that.
I'm setting my alarm clark to wake up and kiss Bruce tonight.
2012 is already off to a great start with that planned. :)
What are you doing tonight?


  1. I could stare at the faces of your children all day long.
    Such light!
    We, too, got hit with the same flu.
    One by one...we all fell down!
    Today, New Years Eve, is my poor hubbys turn.
    No kissing him at midnight.
    Our big plans are quiet ones.
    And I am so very good with that.

    Happy New Year to you

  2. Your Christmas looks perfect! I noticed that your slipcover is gone from your couch... did you give up on it? Mine is driving me c.r.a.z.y! I should have asked Santa for a new couch. :)

  3. your halo angels are more than precious.
    happy new year friend.

  4. I love that photo of the girls with the garland in their hair -- truly little angels.

  6. Kimberlee! Oh how I've missed thee! I loved the pics (sorry to hear about 'the bug', that's no fun at all!) but yes, people still smooch at midnight & 2012 is off to a brilliant start for me as I received four kisses (one at a time of course) at midnight - one from the hubs & one from my grandgirlies, Em, Kylie & Anna (in that order) Happy New Year to you & your sweet family my friend :) I look forward to 'hearing' from you!
