December wrap up

This post is sure to be the longest one ever.. Too much fun this month but I will try and keep it to just the highlights ;-) Mid- December marks our 3 month anniversary with Brooklyn.. She has certainly becoming more comfortable and her personality is shining through more and more…

She has become a favorite at our local gym and is always so excited to see me when I pick her up which I love!!! I wish all my kids jumped up and down when i walked in the room ;-) I may have to start requiring this.. HAHA

Colton our 4 year old has had the hardest time adjusting to his new little sister. I will occasionally see them playing together and it makes my heart smile!
We had a great time celebrating Christmas little early with Dan's family. The little cousins exchanged gifts and this was Brooklyn's first time to open a Christmas gift. She got the hang of it pretty quick. ;-)

We celebrated Christmas Eve and I especially felt so grateful to reflect on our journey to bring our girl home. How we have the privilege to teach and show her God's love for her. One that we don't take for granted and pray we do well.

Christmas morning was perfect!!! Cozy, Exciting, Relaxing and full of family time.. All the things I love.

I mean this face shows you her personality. she is so funny and makes us laugh all the time! Note the little pack n play in the back.. I love watching her put her dolls night night in there..
One of my favorite things is when the kids get gifts for each other. This is when Nathan got Brooklyn a doll and she is saying Thank You. It so fun to watch them get excited about giving. So fun to see lots of pink girly things in our house.
My mom, her husband, my brother and his girlfriend joined us for Christmas dinner. It was full of ugly Christmas sweaters, yummy smoked turkey and tasty cheesecake.

As 2015 came to an end, Dan and I took a trip to California for some relaxation. It was a great time for us to commit to each other new goals. Strive to do better in 2016 with God as the center of family and our own personal lives.. We have some exciting new ventures coming up! Working to simplify our lives to what matters most. Make this the best year yet!
