Love Beyond Words | February 2014

“it doesn’t make sense to call ourselves ugly, because we don’t really see ourselves. we don’t watch ourselves sleeping in bed, curled up silent with our chest rising and falling with our own rhythm. we don’t see ourselves reading a book, eyes fluttering and glowing. you don’t see yourself looking at someone with love and […]

“it doesn’t make sense to call ourselves ugly, because we don’t really see ourselves. we don’t watch ourselves sleeping in bed, curled up silent with our chest rising and falling with our own rhythm. we don’t see ourselves reading a book, eyes fluttering and glowing. you don’t see yourself looking at someone with love and care in your heart. there’s no mirror in your way when your laughing and smiling and pure happiness is leaking out of you. you would know exactly how bright and beautiful you are if you saw yourself in the moments where you are truly your authentic self. “

moment of confession. i really really dislike being on this end of the camera. at the same time my heart pains that i do have more images of me and my children together. in the moment i am self critical. i realized that i haven’t really seen myself. not the way my children see me nor even the way my husband sees me. i truly want to capture my authentic self, and my love which is beyond words for my children. i give this gift to them, even if it makes me uncomfortable in this moment. years from now my future self will thank me, and my children will have warm memories to look back on.

our first Christmas at Dunrovin was wonderful! i love decorating our tree with memories so i had to hunt down the perfect ornament for our first year at Dunrovin. i found one with a bell which Dunrovin has on top of the roof -an old ships bell.

our traditional family Christmas portrait before we open gifts. i guess i should have worn red. lol

the wee boy is obsessed with hero factory. he put together this 300 and some piece hero factory all by himself with no help. the boy can build!! he also loves snakes, spiders and anything that crawls.

i didn’t get too many pics of opening gifts because i was living in the moment rather than viewing it behind a camera. (; we put names in a santa hat this year and drew names to open gifts one at a time. it was so enjoyable watching them open their gifts and it made it last a little longer.

we did do some homemade gifts this year. lexi made lola this little book. she wrote and illustrated the story and we bound it together in a book form. lola adores it!

MIL made the most yummy cheesecake ever! seriously restaurant style. so good!

been reading the children chapter books at bedtime. james and the giant peach was one of my faves as a kid. they loved it. we did watch the movie too and it paled in comparison!

the cutest jammies ever were a gift from their grandmother, Wanda.
