Merry Christmas Eve! Hard to believe that it is already Christmas Eve! This year Christmas snuck up on us very quickly and the fact that we sadly have no snow making for a very green Christmas it doesn’t feel all that festive outside! I have loved celebrating Christmas and Jesus birth since I was little but now having my own littles to celebrate with I have a completely new appreciation for Christmas! I am so excited for them to wake up tomorrow and to get all of our celebrating started! Well I guess technically we start tonight by attending our church’s Christmas Eve service and let me extend to you a welcome if you are in the area! I will be leading worship at both the 5pm and 7pm services and would love to see you there! Than after the services we will open a gift from Santa and the babies will head to bed and hopefully sleep the night away and wake up to find all Santa has left them!

I had fun playing with my tablescape for our Christmas Dinner the other day and I thought I would share with you what I decided on doing for my table. Since my babies are still little I am leaving the fine china out and keeping is simple yet pretty (in my opinion). I have so much fun putting the pieces together and I like the finale product. Let me know what you think!



I am not artistic at all by a long shot but I had fun pretending to be by making my table runner! I added simple gold, white and silver accents. The chargers and napkins each alternate colour from gold to silver. The white snow flakes are made of wood and are the cutest accent. I added the white candles and some larger gold sparkly snowflakes as well.















From my family to yours I truly hope you have a very Merry Christmas and take time to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas with your family and loved ones! Be safe and Enjoy!

  • Sometimes being an adult you gotta do scary things like getting a bunch of bloodwork and other tests done in order to get answers that are needed but like I shared earlier this week it’s all about your mindset. Yes I was sweating and shaking with nerves wishing I didn’t have to do it but I also was thankful that I have a dr who cares and wants answers, thankful for that these tests are available to me and especially thankful for a gentle and kind nurse who made it easier for me.
  • Woke up to the most beautiful white snow and was immediately thankful it was snow and not the rain they are calling for - thankful that the kiddies have snow to play in (which makes them so happy) and thankful that we have different seasons to experience. It’s amazing how a grateful heart changes your out look on things. There is a lot I could chose to complain about today but where I put my thoughts is my choice and will definitely effects my  entire day! Look for the positives in your day focus on those and don’t give negative thoughts a place in your heart and mind!
  • Mama, You were given these children, you! No one else. 
You were given these children because you are who they need.
You have the soul to love them even on their hard days.
You have the motivation and love to give these children everything they need.
You have the heart to wake up every morning and do it all over again, 
Even when you are exhausted. You have the smile that they crave and the touch to make everything okay. You are their sunshine and their comfort. You are theirs and they are yours! On the days you are questioning yourself, remember this! You’ve got this!
  • If you missed it we have a family update up on the blog!
  • After 13 days together this guys Christmas holidays came to an end and I’m not the only one sad about it... little people keep asking “how many more minutes till daddy gets home?” Thankful for how hard he works but safe to say @tspinksy your people miss you!
  • 2018 you were the year of crazy adventure from moving to a new city, saying yes to another foster baby, a new school, new relationships - A year of change and challenge but we are ending the year full of excitement for 2019 and thankful for all that 2018 taught us!
