Getting ready for a very busy Christmas. I truly believe maybe the best ever. Anticipation is intense. Here are some things we have done to prepare. It has been a lot of work and so worth it so far. Tomorrow is Christmas Eve and Uncle Nin Nin and Mary come and massive family meal. Can't wait. Will post pics as soon as I can after Christmas. Maybe on the 25th as our Christmas will be over. Merry Christmas to everyone. May this year to come be safe and bring happiness.
First picture. My first attempt at making stockings. Everyone got on. Including Jenny Brooke's Guinea Pig.

So after much talk with kids, Dave and friends the theme and colors of the wedding have changed AGAIN. This time we can all officially say we know what we are finally doing. Which is quite a relief. Going back and forth has been driving me nuts. Date has NOT change thank goodness. For so many years I have struggled with self esteem and self worth which brings me to a final wedding decision. We are going to have a Fairytale winter wedding. Although it really isn't in the winter lol! I want to be a princess for a day and I want my girls to be the princesses they already are. I will be marrying my prince and my handsome son will continue to be the prince that he is. I am completely thrilled and can envision the whole wedding. My dreams have already come true but on April 27th 2013 people will be able to be apart of it. There will be so many different aspects to out wedding because EVERYTHING Dave and I do will incorporate our three wonderful children. I don't wanna give to much away but this wedding is going to be a very personal heart felt renewal of our commitment as a family.
