Christmas Time is Here!

Yesterday we went and picked out our tree! It was so fun to watch how excited Aubrie was. We let her pick which one she wanted and she loved it. When we got home she could hardly contain her excitement to decorate the tree. Every time the lights lit up she gasped and said, "What pretty lights!!" She loved playing with the ornaments and setting them on the bottom of the tree. I think my favorite quote I heard from her sweet mouth over and over again was " It's looking goagus!" (Gorgeous) :).
So excited to see Christmas through her little eyes. I love that little girl with my whole being. She brings me so much joy.

Other pics I've snapped lately

~Life is full and busy with our girls.. It's fun to watch Aubrie with Emma. She tries to help me take care of her and only has had a few jealous moments. Emma is a lot fussier than Aubrie was so that has been a little bit of a challenge, but we are slowly figuring things out to make her happy. She is getting baptized tomorrow. So very thankful that our girls belong to the Lord and He has placed his seal on them. 
Children truly are gifts. 
~The other day I took the girls to Hobby Lobby to pick out a few Christmas decorations and let Aubrie look at all of the pretty ornaments. Aubrie very excitedly told a sweet older woman that we were at Hobby Lobby!!! She thought Aubrie was so cute, wanted to look at Emma, then looked at me with the sweetest expression and said, "You are very blessed." That warmed my heart. So many people when hearing how close the girls are in age (22 months) have made comments like, "You're crazy!" or "Your going to be so busy!" or "Your hands are full". I know people probably aren't meaning ill will but I HATE these comments. They are talking about my babies after all! I am overly grateful that God chose to give us two healthy girls who will get the joy of growing up together. We are giving them the precious gift of sisterhood, a bond they will forever cherish. What could be better than that? I'm not going to lie, there are some days that I just want to cry, some I want to scream, some I want to just take a break, but the good out weigh the difficult, and the joy I get from spending every minute watching them grow is something my heart will treasure. I am extremely grateful to be a stay at home mom and couldn't imagine doing anything else.

Happy Weekend Friends!
