We don’t share much about our own story here on this space, so we thought we’d make an exception and share a peek into our world, from a post on our family blog, from this Christmas. If you shared any parts of this past year with us, you know it was a hard year. It was a good year in many ways, but also one of the hardest yet due to Zion’s health problems and multiple hospital stays. So when Christmas came around, Zion was well, and everything felt magic and blessed, we pulled out the camera and made sure we captured the little in between moments of overwhelming joy. Here’s some of the little snippets from our Christmas together, our first one in this lovely old home..

This Christmas was a gift of grace to us. I hope I never forget the fog that settled in and stayed for two days, the magic of coming down the spiral staircase with the boys for our first Christmas morning here, presents being opened before it was even light out, a christmas pup playing with all the paper and string, cinnamon rolls out of the oven with eggs from our hens, movies on the projector, and the overwhelming feeling of love that filled these rooms.
