I took a break from the normal routine of life that I am used to. ♥Home is where the heart is♥ an I was able to brave the snow and make it home to my side of the family. It was wonderful to be unattached to technology and just focus on the things I love about being home.
I rub it into my sister all the time that her little girl is sooooooo much like her Aunt Julie! It is so uncanny how she has so many characteristics that remind everyone (not just me!) of her aunt! My face identifer even asks, “Is this Julie” because some of our facial features are alike. Poor sister of mine! She spent 18 years living with me and now she’ll have another 18 with a mini Julie!
The nephew: He crawls into bed all by himself and grabs a book and can be found there for about 30 minutes just chilling and ‘reading’! He is going to be such a smart cookie! It makes his teacher aunt (and teacher mom, and teacher dad, and teacher Uncle) very proud! I fall in love with him more every day! Such a stinker with stubbornness of his mommy’s side of the family- but with the heart of his mommy’s side of the family to accompany it! What a kid! SIDENOTE- he turned TWO on Christmas Eve! ❤
I will always be my daddy’s little girl. FOREVER!
HOW on earth did the time at home sneak away without a picture of me + mom and me + sister?!?! I know they are on other cameras. Booo! I’m missing part of my family!
I live in the country- this is true. While at my home or my parents home, I get to run with the cows. I see a cow on every single outdoor run I take. For real, I took this while out on a run. I’m not embarrassed of this, in fact I don’t know why I haven’t shared my running buddies with you before.
Celebrating the birth of Jesus
What a wonderful reason to celebrate! The time at home was filled with family, fun, food, and celebrating the reason for the season. Candle light Christmas Eve service was great and I enjoyed the Christmas service at my home church (where the husband and I were married.) It was a wonderful Christmas! 🙂
