Hi there.
This is me...a happy wife, mom to three awesome boys, teacher to two of the aforementioned boys (we homeschool), chauffeur to karate, archery and all sorts of other activities, former scrapbooker and founder of the 
Good Grief Blog.
Life is good.

Even though Christmas kind of snuck up on us this year, it was a pretty darn good one. :) It finally cooled off and snowed...Micah and Nathan made me lumpia for Christmas...(we generally ask the boys to either make or do something for their gifts for Nathan and me)...this is them prepping it the day before...

...we took our traditional drive to look at lights and found this house again with light shows coordinated to songs on a private radio station...

...we opened and then played lots of fun new games...(I counted eight new board/card games and three new video games)...(oh, and the boys didn't crack my present labeling code ahead of time this year either, lol)...

...and we enjoyed loads of YUMMY Christmas goodies--annual Christmas cookies from my brother Joe (always a favorite gift around here!), delicious treats from neighbors and friends, homemade chocolate dipped honeycomb that Asher made me, peppermint cake Nathan bakes most years, chocolate oranges the boys get in their stockings every year, and goodies from Italy, France and England that Santa brought along with passports for boys to celebrate the trip we're going to take next year. (Seriously, this picture is only a portion of the loot and we definitely have too much sugar here at the moment, lol.)

(Here's the chocolate dipped honeycomb Asher made me...)

Yup. Lots of fabulous, thoughtful gifts here and just feeling so incredibly blessed. Happy sigh. :)
