Bumps First Christmas


Each year I look forward to all the Christmas Cards from our friends and family – especially the photo cards.  Unless I am expecting packages it is the only time of year when I actually check and bring in the mail.  My husband and I have been continually blessed in our marriage, with our family and friends and now with expanding our own little family.  It’s surreal to think that next Christmas we will have a 9 month old little boy and if all goes well a couple month old golden retriever puppy!  OH, the ideas I have for our Christmas cards then!!!  But, for now we are very happy to celebrate our love and excitement for my growing baby bump.

I planned for us to take some casual pictures for our Christmas card and of course we had a lot of fun with the bump too!

When […]

Christmas Wrappings

12.19.15 017

When I was younger my mom would create the most beautiful packages for my sister and I to open.  Each of us had our own wrapping paper where all our gifts from my parents would be wrapped in our own paper.  And then there would be the gifts from Santa; each year slightly different but […]
