nutcracker finale

This was Camryn's third year performing in the Nutcracker ballet with her dance academy. We are so blessed to be a part of Claylee's- everyone is absolutely wonderful! It's truly been amazing to watch her enthusiasm grow for ballet. She has found her passion, for sure.
As an angel and soldier she always had a beautiful smile on her face- one definitely meant for performing! :)
I sense MANY more years to come for us with the Nutcracker....

pure joy... to the world

This year Christmas has definitely snuck up quickly... and we're ready! The kids were so excited to get our boxes out and start decorating.
We've had a blast figuring out what our month was going to hold, considering we put "the books" away to focus solely on Christmas. There's been a lot of decorating, baking, caroling, giving, hot chocolate drinking, singing, and creating going on. It's been so special to do all of these things totally together this year. I wouldn't change a thing and am so grateful to infuse the birth of our Lord into our every day. We are blessed!
