As Christmas is quickly approaching this year, we are taking time to slow down and focus on what matters. Our kids, our family, health and the all our blessings. This October we lost our first baby, our sweet pup Jackson, and I was very nervous about the holidays without him. He has spent every Christmas with David and I for the past nine years and coming across his stocking this year and not hanging it up was heart breaking. We still miss him terribly, but are thankful that with the absence of one family member we have the addition of a new one, our little Deacon. I am so thankful we had these photos taken nine days before Jackson’s passing of our WHOLE family. It was one of the good days for him, and you can see how happy he is in the photos. Thank you thank you to B. Schwartz Photography for capturing these photos of all of us, we will treasure them forever. We hope that whatever kind of year it has been for you, one full of prosperity or one with great struggles, you can enjoy this holiday season and God’s abundant blessings and grace. Health and happiness to you and yours this Christmas and in the New Year!
