Merry and Bright

Today is our first Christmas with Tate; both Mark & I agree that for maybe the first time ever, we sincerely want for nothing. Asking for anything just seems silly, when we have SO MUCH. And while we can think of little things we could use, they only pale in comparison to the amazing, simple joy Tate brings to us every day.

I mean, just look at this little guy!

I think he's a little confused, because we told him to never talk to strangers but then we just plopped him right into the lap of this dude...what gives?!

We are staying home for Christmas for the first time in our relationship, in order to start our own holiday traditions that will carry on through the years, lending comforting memories for Tate to share and talk about some day.  I can think of few things more important than just staying and being...right where we are, with all we have.

I pray your holidays are blessed and happy - if I could share the feeling of complete contentment I have in my heart today, I most certainly would.  Hugs and love to you all!


  1. So happy that you are so happy :). I, too, wanted for nothing this year...which may have been a mistake since Santa then saw fit to bring me the flu on Christmas Eve ;-).

    Glad that your family is happy AND healthy. I do believe that 2011 will just keep getting even better for you! And, girl, you deserve it!

  2. Loves to you all and so glad you had a Merry Christmas!

  3. Glad Tate's first Christmas was so nice! Merry Christmas to you all! xo


Please leave a comment! It will be fun for Tate to look back on some day... :o)
