As we all know, it's really easy to live our lives out of habit (alot of times they are even bad habits). I stumbled across this quote and it just really jolted me.  So, my mantra for this year is, "live less out of habit and more out of intent". I am trying to make everything I do have intent, and I hope you will consider this thought as well.

12 Posts of Christmas- #12

So thankful for cousin love. We've gotten the privilege of getting together the last 2 Christmases with my cousin and Jake's brother (who are married) and it's been really special.
4 out of our 5 kids got the stomach bug and we all said despite that, we were still glad we'd all gotten together. That's when you know you had a really good time. And I mean who can really stand all this cuteness????

 This out of focus madness, truly sums it up!

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Disney Pics Part 1:
This face right here literally says it all. We saw this face on Keaton all week, and this made it worth it all! Aside from some colder temps than we were prepared for, we had such a great week!

This is the only proof I have that I turned 30.
I think I'm gonna burn it.
I'm kidding. Mostly.
But the above mentioned thing did happen and my sweet hubby threw a little party for me at my job and then we went to Disney, (so it wasn't all bad).
But since I turned 30 my joints have started hurting and I've been needing coffee more and I'm gaining holiday pounds that I never gained before. I guess it's true what they say. 
I'm no longer celebrating my birthday, but rather the death of my youth. :O

 That day when you look over at your kids and go "woah, how did that happen?" That was this day. It might have been the way they were sitting, or that they were sharing an app on my iPhone... but literally Beckham looked almost as big as Keaton and neither one of them looked like babies.
 Now, Beckham's behavior today proved he is INDEED still a baby. But on this day, he didn't seem so.  Of course Mother's can always think of their kids as their "baby", but the reality is that actual season of life is a very, very small one.
 The Orange Rethink Company has a lot of great blogs and thoughts on the preciousness of parenting young kids and appreciating the moments and the impact you have in this season. They suggest having a jar filled with marbles for every week you have until your kids high school graduation, and then removing one marble each week to remind you of your "window of impact". Such a visual reminder is great, because even though time passes fast, I want to try my bestest to enjoy each season that I'm in and influence them as much as I can. Because these pictures, (while they don't contain any babies) still show my young, small, innocent children, and I know it will not be that way forever. But for now it is....
