Simple things

We have had a very wonderful end to November and start to December here at our house. In the midst of a busy season, we've dug in and tried to make simple, sweet memories together. Wearing a newly sewn nightgown, having a snowball fight, going to a tree farm to hunt for a Christmas tree, and decorating the house together have filled our quieter moments. In this season of Advent, of waiting for Christmas to come, we are finding joy together doing simple things.

  1. Maya looks so much like a younger version of you. What beautiful children they are. I really really love that snow turkey.
