Boys in Hats and Paul made me do it!

Aren't they adorable... (If you ever get sick of looking at pictures of my kids... SORRY! Go Away!!) A major reason I do this blog is so that Mimi and Papa can see glimpses of their grandchildren since we live so far away from each other and if I post a picture at least once a week (twice is better) for Mimi she is happy and if Mimi is happy ... well you know how it goes!

And that picture of me at the end! like I said Pauly made me do it... the things you do for your children huh! He got a kick out of it.

Lately I've been running around like a mad woman getting ready for our trip to where I grew up to spend Christmas with Mimi and Papa (my parents). It has been about 4 years since I've been home for Christmas so I'm jazzed!!!! & little Billy will be dedicated there the Sunday after Christmas in the Church where I grew up. We decided to do this so my grandparents (his great grandparents including my Grandpa Bill - who he is named after) can be in attendance which is extra special!

I am a little bummed that I decided not to put up a Christmas tree up this year... It was Ben and my decision since we will be gone - we just didn't want to deal with it... I think if the boys were a little older I would of just put up with it. I CAN'T wait to see my mom's house. They have been working on remodeling it FOREVER! and I haven't seen the finished product - not to mention, my mom is a decorating genius and it feels so magical walking in her home during Christmas! Just thinking about it makes me feel like I've been drinking gobs of coffee... all jittery and excited!

I will also be able to spend Christmas with my little sis and neice but not my middle sis :( and that makes us all sad BUT I might get to see her the week after New Years which is awesome! I love how God surprises you with this kind of stuff when you least expect it!

I wish all of you and your family a joyful and magical Christmas and Happy Birthday Jesus!

Nice post Sami, I hope you enjoy your time w/ your family. Its great that you get to go see them. I know exactly how you feel, but now we are w/ our family for the 1st in 6 years. I am so happy for Caden, he gets to enjoy a Christmas with all of his cousins, aunts uncles, etc. Its an important aspect of your life, to be w/ your family.

I wish you all a wonderful holiday season.
