Holiday recap and other happenings

Sometimes I hate Christmas.
 It was a special time for me as a kid, but after Emily died, my expectations were never met (not even talking gifts, here), and I was always disappointed. I was ripped away from the only family I knew, only to create traditions that I did not enjoy. This year I was EXCITED. Really excited to be around my husband's family and to enjoy my time with all of them for the first time ever. Christmas started out great. I skyped with my mom and She got to watch Paxton open his Christmas presents. All was going well until later that evening. John spent our gift money on me, so we were not able to get gifts for everyone. (Paxton did manage to get a gift for all his cousins, though. the dollar store is a wonderful thing) So I had this idea to write a letter to the whole family. My goal was to bring to light their strengths because sometimes I feel like I hear more negative things about them. So I shared some really private things about my life with them. Things…

It's the most wonderful time of the year

Hello all,

Let's cut to the chase. We have another baby on the way!
Miracles happen and this pregnancy is one of them.

Please pray for john and I. We have a lot of changes that need to happen before she ( I hope) gets here, including but no limited to trading in our car for a van, purchasing a double stroller, and The most important being, finding a home to birth in. I doubt any if you forgot, but I plan on doing a home birth at all costs with all of my children. We just don't know where home is going to be. The way I see it, we have 2 options:
1. Buying a house before June 30th
2. checking in to a luxury hotel with a swimming pool sized bath tub.

I hope for the first, but wouldn't mind the second.

We are otherwise thrilled, and we wish everyone a happy holiday season, and a very Merry Christmas.
