We spent Thanksgiving with Nana and Grandma, Grandpa McDonald, Uncle Tiger and Uncle Scott. We have so many things to be thankful for this year and we were glad to celebrate with some of our biggest blessings. As tradition the day after Thanksgiving we were able to break out the Christmas decorations and begin Mommy's favorite season.

37: December | Celebrating the birth of Our Saviour is a favorite in our house but seeing it through a child's eyes made it even more of a blessing. We celebrated all month long with friends, gifts, snow and Christmas lights. We spent Christmas Eve and morning with Nana and then Christmas Day with the whole McDonald Family. We have been so blessed this year and we even got to end it with the Matt, Becky and Jessie! I can't wait to see what 2014 has in store for us!
