This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 9 and 3 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

Merry Christmas 2016!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season this year. Ours was quietly spent at home with our new traditions, and old ones too! For Christmas Eve we got the customary Arby's sandwiches and watched Christmas movies. After that we went to look at lights, and Brad dropped off some homemade cookies to his girlfriend.

For Christmas morning the boys were very excited to open presents!! They both got some great toys from Santa and family. Brad immediately dug into his Lego kit and began building, and Jacob carried his all over the house while I started on breakfast. Biscuits and sausage gravy are what I grew up having on Christmas morning, and now that we are on our own I am continuing that for my children.

For dinner I'm going a little nontraditional and making chicken enchiladas! Neither of us felt like having a big spread so this will be a fun change. My good friend Stephanie is joining us for dinner and it will be a lovely time!
