I love receiving mail in December! We love to see how all of our friends’ kids charge over the year, and we keep our cards up all year long, does anyone else?. Then I create a book with the cards.

P.S. I often get e-mails asking for our mailing address, if any of you want it, here it is. We’d LOVE to see the families that are a part of our blogging world:

This guy is my rock!. He loves me for who I am, unconditionally (even when I am a stinker and kind of hard to love ;), he’s a keeper!). I am so grateful for him.

We celebrated 14 years together November 30th. How crazy is that? <3
