I am really proud of us for keeping this tradition (not putting out the cookies of course we would have done that, but making them ourselves from scratch!) despite how crazy our lives were at the time, it is so great to have these pictures!
Christmas Eve 2009 Cookies for Santa, Carrots for the Reindeer, and an extra Milk for the flight...nice job E!
We set everything out before E & I went to 10pm mass thinking he'd be asleep on the ride home, no way, he was too excited!!
Liam, don't worry we won't leave you out for Santa ;)
That's me...one blessed mama to the 5 sweetest and most handsome BOYS (a 5-year-old and 18-month old quadruplets)..yes 5 boys 5 and under (I only get to say that for a few more months!) Wife to the man God made just for me (and me for him). God gifted us these five little men and I rely on him always through this journey. I hold hands and hearts, create home, and through His grace, my will, and my family's love, I live for and in this moment.
TAKE HEART WORDS
People are often unreasonable, illogical,
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, People may accuse you
of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some
false friends and some true enemies;
If you are honest and frank,
people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could
If you find serenity and happiness,
they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today,
people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have,
and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis,
it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway
- Mother Theresa
