"Santa, I Believe!" This is a great stage of life. For the kids, to be excited and genuinely believe in the mystery. For us, to witness the purity, the simple joys. I really had no idea what gifts would come into my life as a Mommy. I'm so thankful that God intrusted us to raise these beautiful children.
Wenatchee mean quality time with the cousins.
LGB train set for his tree. Nathan REALLY wanted this veggie train for Christmas, so Santa obliged. Then we watched the Polar Express movie.... and now Nathan REALLY wants the Polar Express train. He plays with all of them. An expression quickly comes to mind: How many motorcycles does a man need? Just one more. (I can hear the chuckle from Trever and Mike)

I can’t believe we are weeks away from these moments. The cuddles, the tiny hands, the awe of meeting this little person we’ve been growing for so long.
It makes me love my husband so much more each time I look into the face of our children. I am so thankful for the beautiful gifts he has given me, for the blessing of motherhood.

I wonder when our kids will start to question how many times they get to see Santa before Christmas comes around?

Alderbrook. The lobby is warm and relaxing. As you walk through the doors you are welcomed into the Christmas spirit by the roaring fire and beautiful decorations. Santa is always jolly, and the kids get to loiter and play since there isn't a line of families feeling impatient behind them.
