Happy Birthday Baby Jesus! How blessed are we to be able to spend Christmas at home with family and our sweet precious Heidi. I think about it all the time how God sent His son to earth to be born knowing that He was giving him a death sentence. Knowing the grief of losing a child I could not even imagine. It always tugs at my heart because had I known that we were going to lose Hudson I probably never would have wanted to get pregnant in the first place.
We celebrated Christmas at home! On Christmas Eve we went to church and then to my sister's house for dinner where Santa came to visit! He brought each of the kids a present :) Christmas morning we had delicious cinnamon rolls and then opened gifts! John bought me an amazing necklace that has the birthstones and names of our children. After present time we ate lunch at.....wait for it...Waffle House :) I didn't feel like cooking and part of the message at church kind of encouraged it! For dinner we went to my parent's house and opened gifts and ate! All in all it was a great day!
Heidi and her adorable coat - her poor teeth were bothering her.
Looking so sweet and angelic
The best picture we could get of the cousins
Apparently it was roll around on the floor time...

I like to take pictures with her Christmas presents and her little smile was so cute!!
Friday night we headed to April's fun place called Jump-n-Jacks for Emily's birthday party. It is such a fun place with bounce houses, slides, laser tag, arcade games, and even a place for the wee ones! We celebrated with cake and presents! Heidi had such a fun time in the bounce houses with her cousin Georgia.
In the afternoon we had our weekly "ladies who lunch" and celebrated Holly's birthday! I have never seen someone so excited about turning 30 in my life! She wanted to go to Waffle House for her special birthday lunch :)
