it has been a most joyous few months as we celebrated birthdays, Halloween, Thanksgiving and finally ending this week as we celebrated the birth of our Savior with Christmas. i will be quick to admit, no matter how hard i try, the holiday season becomes very busy and filled with a lot of fun (but time consuming) activities. it has been nice to have the past few days to just relax and have no plans on our "agenda". i have even taken a few afternoon naps which have been quite enjoyable. these images were from one morning this week. i stopped to observe our three year old as she was just enjoying some down time herself.
