The Love Bug

Do you ever catch those moments with your kids that you just want to bottle up and save forever?
Well, this was one of those moments for me.
I caught the kids just sitting on the bottom stair, hanging out, enjoying each other, and yes ... maybe even sharing a little love.
That made this Mommy smile!

Holiday Highlights

In no particular order:
*Gabrielle telling me "Shhh ... God is talking to me right now."
*Dawson totally suprising us by reciting the ABC's ON Christmas Day!. This was a 1st.
*A white Christmas
*A Christmas spent with the entire DuBay clan - all 16 of us!
*Family photos by - a gift from Mema & Papa
*Time with a dear childhood friend, Carrie
*Gabrielle repetively stating that the laundry room smelled like Santa ... "He must have come in through the garage since he is too fat to fit down the chimney."
*Dawson loving his new interactive "crocodile (um son I have news for you - it is a dinosaur) Spike Jr.
*Goodie baking. The plus side here is only one recipe flopped and I blame that on what is thought to be stale brown sugar.
*Travis surprising me with a very nice!! wine selection as well as a gift card to the Legends
*Gabrielle literally crawling into the Santa present bag to retrieve her gift. Too cute!
Picture forthcoming on this one
*Sledding TODAY!!!!!!
*Successful shopping with many great deals and some bonus buys from one VERY GOOD FRIEND! You know who you are - HUGS!
