Ferguson Christmas 2013

One.More.Christmas.   It's been a VERY busy week(s).  I have been chanting themes of gratefulness in my head so as not to complain about all the holiday chaos.  We're beyond blessed - like the kind of blessed you can't put into "blogger words."  Family on top of family on top of family to visit…. all who love us and our children.  I have a friend who fosters little babies right here in Arkansas that have the exact opposite problem - no family.  So, when I start to feel pulled too many directions and exhausted from the preparation for family Christmas, I remember all the little Arkansas b
abies with no family to fuss over them.  Then…. I realize my First World Problems are soooooo petty.  So, in the spirit of gratefulness….. here are the pictures from our Ferguson Christmas.
