daily moments – week 52

Here we are at week 52 and its crazy that its time to start back at week one. We had a full, but relaxing week. We did lots of holiday type activities and it was one of the best Christmases we have had as a family.

Here’s our week . . .

Decorating cookies with friends on Christmas Eve.

These five have grown up together. Brooks and Gabriel met when they were both about a year old. They often think of each other as cousins.IMG_8636

Making sugar cookies is no small task with busy little hands.

I was crazy and took all three to run errands on Christmas Eve during the monsoon.IMG_20151226_202247Children’s museum.

I have started to run around sundown a few times a week. So glad I am making myself get back into the habit.IMG_20151226_202510

Grabbing a quick lunch with a friend while Mark took all 3 kids alone to the zoo so I could pack and clean. God bless him. IMG_20151226_123104738

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!
