This Christmas we were hit hard with a terrible storm. We had over 6 inches of flooding in my work studio (aka. Santa's workshop). We thought that Christmas was going to be ruined, but the entire family came together and helped clean our house up just in time for the holiday.
I originally thought that Christmas had be ruined. I was exhausted and frustrated from all the water and mud clean-up, but it ended up being one of the best Christmas' we had ever had.
The kids were so excited about just spending time together as a family. Steve's Santa costume from Costume Discounters came the day before Christmas, and the kids loved seeing him dressed up like the big guy. We really focused this Christmas on the importance of our family and they we are together!
The cutest part of Christmas morning was Tyler's extreme excitement for his two presents. Steve and I woke up to the kids screaming with excitement from their pillow pets that were under the tree. (who knew a pillow could make a child so happy)
It was such a special holiday and we were so grateful that we had each other, our families by our side and love in our hearts! ~We hope that you and your family had a wonderful holiday together too!
