I am a proud mom 3 ways. By marriage, birth, and adoption (in that order). I became mom to Megan in 1997 when I married her daddy. I became mom to Noah in 2001 when I gave birth to him. And finally I became mom to twins, Dalton (aka Moose) and Devin in 2005 when we adopted them. This is the story of my life....it's a story worth telling!

Christmastime is near
Sometime last Christmas season I found Edie's blog. She posted this about her family's holiday season.
This year, this is our Christmas journey.
Less decorating, more living.
Less shopping, more giving.
Less running, more being.
Enjoying all the little gifts along the way.
CHRISTmas is coming. I hope we don’t miss HIM.
After I read this I copied it to a post-it note on my computer's desktop. It has been there for a year. I wanted to remember it this Christmas season. I want this to be my motto. I don't want to get all caught up in the rushing around and focus on what really matters. Which can be kind of hard with 3 boys who want everything they see!
