This blog is about our family, who have dealt with the loss of two sons with Muscular Dystrophy, the adoption of a son diagnosed with Agenesis of Corpus Callosum and the birth our a healthy little girl. It's a crazy life, but we are loving it.

Christmastime Wrap Up

Just tying up a few Christmastime Ends for you!

We did the Secret Santa gift exchange at work. The girl who drew my name was awesome! It seemed that every time I left my desk and came back, a new gift would appear.

She knew my love for chocolate mint.... God Bless her!

I wasn't sure what to do for the girl whose name I had drawn. I talked to her work partner for ideas and a lightbulb went off. She likes to bake and do canning, so I made her an apron.

Her name starts with a B and her favorite color is yellow. I found a plain white apron at Hobby Lobby along with the iron on B, the flower and the ruffle. I ironed the B on and used liquid stitch for the ruffle and flower. I don't sew. Wish I could.

And lastly, here are some outtakes from my Christmas photo shoot I tried to take last night.

Mark already took the Christmas tree down and packed the Christmas stuff up for the year. The house is officially back to normal. Well, as normal as we can be!


  1. Merry Christmas! What a creative idea for the apron. :)
