Christmas Day

Well it's been a nice quiet, peaceful Christmas with family.  Wasn't about the gifts this year which is nice.  Glad that Samuel's ok with not having the latest gadgets and very happy with what he got even though we wish we could have done more.  But like I said, it's just not about the gifts.  At least not about the gifts we give each other.  We're blessed no matter what because of the gift of Jesus.  Sounds trite when I type it like that, but it really is true.  I didn't open gifts today, well, I did open a card from my in-laws... a trip to the lovely Olive Garden.  Very nice.  I got my sweet ring from my men that covered my birthday and Christmas.  :o) It's got April's and September's birthstones in it, for Cayla and Samuel.  They are so thoughtful.  They wanted to give me a ring for Mother's Day, but too much going on.  It's very special that they got this for me.  I love them both so much!  :o)

Some Christmas ornaments we got this year to remember our precious Cayla Joy...

Our senior and our baby... 2012
There were a few tears shed today.  But it was a beautiful day.  I wasn't sure how I'd be or even Lowell and Samuel, but we had our time this morning remembering her and talking together.  Amazingly enough, thanks to the prayers, we all were able to enjoy the day without a lot of stress or grief, but happy memories.  So a huge thank you to those who have prayed.  God answered!  :o)

Hope you all had a blessed Christmas!  We are looking forward to 2013 and all that it will bring.  I still want to post pictures of Cayla's little mementos and her shelf.  Another night this week maybe.  This is one tired mama who's got a doctor's appt. tomorrow.  God bless!
