Christmas 2009

Whew! Sorry....January's been a little busy so far! For those who are unaware we spent Christmas away from home at Seabrook. I was wary of being away from home (or my in laws home) for Christmas but this was SO lovely! Seabrook is about 40 minutes north of Ocean Shores and it is BEAUTIFUL unlike Ocean Shores. I love the ocean. Its humbling beauty is something I could stare at for hours. I feel small in its grandeur and I think that is a very good thing. One cannot help but be in awe of the Creator.

The kids did well and had a great time. Beau was pretty sick but on the mend by the time we arrived and I was doing better after contracting pink eye two nights before! But all was well and most notably there was NOT a cloud in the sky the entire time! ON the OCEAN! IN Washington State!!! It was butt cold though, as evidenced by my children actually wearing hats :)

I received a most outstanding gift as well from my mother in law. She made me a book.... of this blog!!! Every entry starting at the beginning, which I gathered is quite a feat. It is truly one of the most precious gifts I have ever received- Thank you, Janie! She told me I would cry as she handed me the package. Well, I did. And I have since then too :)

Being known and loved for who you are by your mother in law is a wonderful gift.

Thanks God :)
