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.

  • Long weekend spent doing errands and packing - sore throat, full ears and a headache making this girl frustrated - sleep they say!?! And I say I wish but when your a mama to 4 and moving in just days sleep will have to wait! Thankful for medicine, @starbuckscanada and the fact we get to move to our new house so soon! Perspective changes everything - can’t change how I feel but I can change my focus!
  • Cold wet morning and early specialist appointment where they told me I had to wear loose fitting clothes- track suit it is! #monday #letsdothis
  • The privilege and blessing it is to be their mommy is one I don’t take for granted ever. They were each worth the years of heartache. Today is always an emotional one for me so today I say “Happy Mother’s Day” to all the moms - the first time moms, the seasoned ones, the mommy’s in waiting, the hurting ones, the grieving one wether that be from the loss of a mom or a loss of a baby/child, to the foster mamas, to the bonus moms to the adoptive mommy’s and the birth moms - I am thinking of you today and I hope you feel love and valued because you are!
  • As a mommy I find myself often times so proud to be the mommy of my little people. I remember being proud when they slept through the night or took their first steps. The older they get the more proud I am of them not necessarily when they simply accomplish a task or master a skill but when they make choices that show their true character. This girl had another gymnastics competition today and she was feeling all kinds of nerves but as she told her brother and sister “I just went out there and did it” and that she did. I was so proud of her not just for being brave or not just because she put lots of work into learning her skills and ended up placing in each event she competed in but because my 6 year old was awarded the sportsmanship trophy for the ages 7-9 in the competition. That to me as her mama made me cry and beam with pride. My girl out there with a positive attitude encouraging the other athletes and competing in a kind and fair manner that’s what it’s all about to this mama. I can take no credit for her awards or her trophy today she earned them all but I sure am proud and not afraid to say it. I love you #graylynnhope and I’m proud to be your mama not just today but everyday!
  • Easter behind us (already) May is coming and dare I say summer is on its way... I’m pretty sure end of school will be here literally before I know it and I’m ok with that but lots of exciting things in store for the next little while and these little people make it all worth it.
  • Monday’s mantra! (And everyday) If we all where a little kinder think how different the world would be! Kindness always wins!
