As I'm writing this blog post Sierra is on her way back home to Jersey, and we are so thrilled to finally have her home for the holidays after an entire year of not seeing her. Although we did miss her, our first Christmas spent without her wasn't so bad (I only wish she would have been in our Christmas photo). Nonetheless it turned out to be a pretty great day spent with great friends eating amazing food filled inside a happy home full of happy kids!

And maybe some of them were not so needed like an American Girl doll, the Maze Runner movie, candy, and jewelry to name a few...
but at the end of the day seeing my kids expressing gratitude with a side of happiness surrounded by the small amount of spiritual and temporal gifts they received is all that matters and that's what makes us the happiest parents in the world!
Especially on Christmas day when they are all busy playing nice not only with their toys, but with each other too! Such a beautiful sight to see.
Happy Holiday weekend!
