It's the most wonderful time of the year.

Indeed, it is.

This December not only brings Christmas, but for us, it brings having our baby girl home for one year. On December 9th we will celebrate Morgan Kate's one year homecoming. What a terrific day that was! The answer to so many prayers.

This December we celebrate and cherish having our baby girl home free of wires, oxygen and feeding tubes. This December we look forward to remembering Jesus' birth. This December we will get to spend quality time with family, which is something we weren't able to do last year. This December Santa will make a stop by our house, which is something I especially look forward to. This December we will sit as a family beside our Christmas tree, reflecting on the past year and looking forward to the new year ahead.

And this little girl has already begun doing just that, sitting beside under the tree.

It's the most wonderful time of the year for so many reasons. And I can't wait to spend it with this little girl.

I believe Morgan Kate loves this time of the year too. Her eyes light up like a Christmas Tree. Our eyes light up like Christmas Trees when we see and hold her. Hope to see you guys during the Holidays. We would love to come see her or meet you guys for lunch or dinner and shop!!!!
