    "One thing I do know is that I was blind and now I see." John 9:1-41
We're officially one of those families. The type with an extremely loud child that has to sit at the back of the church and go for frequent laps just to burn off energy. Remy's cute bird noises have turned into ear piercing screams. Like SCREAMING for joy at the top of her lungs. It's cute when we're at home, but not so much during a long and serious Catholic service. Then when I try to cover her mouth with my hand she licks me. Honestly, Geoff and I can't complain. We actually have to stifle our laughs. We were truly blessed with such an amazing girl. I prayed for her for such a long time, and my prayers were answered. And then some. 
Also, it is the anniversary weekend of her and her cousin's baptism (@abighousefull). What a special time of year. Always ready to help unload the dishwasher, clean dishes or not. More importantly, it's Friday!

My husband and I have to break up our Christmas holidays. We usually spend Christmas Eve with my family, and then Christmas Day with his. His family also lives out of town on an acreage, so the hour-long drive there Christmas morning feels like a nice way to wind down from the night before. By the time the evening rolls around, we are usually home, tired, and unbelieving of the past few days. Then it’s time to open our gifts from each other.

This Christmas evening, we made sure to watch Red Skelton for Baba. She would always talk about how comical he was, and how she and her husband loved watching his show. Neither one of us had ever seen an episode, and so we felt that it was fitting to watch his Christmas Special for the first time, together, on Christmas night. Then, we finished off the evening with National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, of course. What a wonderful end to another great holiday season. I can’t wait until next year’s Christmas events and photos.
