I wanted to post one last time before Christmas. We went and saw Santa this year and I must say it went over a lot better that last year! Collins had no idea what was going on and Jack was preoccupied with the candy cane, although he was sure to mention he wanted a tractor and truck for Christmas (although he has 10 thousand!). Unfortunetly, we have spent the majority of this Christmas Season by ourselves. Turns out the busiest time of the year for an ABC person is Christmas. So Brendan working every evening leaves us alone - which really stinks this time of year. I mostly hate that the boys have to miss out on fun things like the Polar Express and Zoo Light Safari (which I am not brave enough to take a 2 year old and newborn by myself) . Thankful my Brother and Dad are going to spend Christmas eve day with us and go the candle light service with us. Since being alone for the holidays will be a yearly thing, I am determined next year I am going to be better prepared and take on all of these fun traditions even if its just us! I am a big family person so this has been especially hard, please pray that my lonliness is lifted and the joy of Christmas is restored for me. Really, I have so much to be thankful for. I can relate to how Mary must have felt having a new baby and all the happiness that brings.
On a side note... If you didn't get a Christmas Card its because I didn't send them. Like I said earlier, next year I will be better prepared and will get them out. I must say though, I have so enjoyed getting yours and seeing how all the sweet babies are growing!!
Jacks new dunp truck, and a fun toy to go inside!
