Wishing you a Merry Christmas!

I just wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas! And Share a few pictures of Christmas around our house. This is a picture of The Trees we put up for The Girls. I'm really proud of how they turned out again this year...and I especially loves the tree skirts!This is our "big" tree. I looks so pretty at night! We decided with Maggie running around it would be best to put The Girls Trees on the table...and I agree!
I hope you all have a Very Merry Christmas tomorrow! I also wish I could have sent a Christmas Card to each of you but I can' this will have to do! I hope you enjoy!

Also I know this image is horrible, I think it may be time for a new scanner...but you get the idea!

My Birthday

Friday was my Birthday. I have always loved my Birthday; my parents made a point to differentiate between it and Christmas and in doing so made it a big deal. I loved it, I still do! In my mind your birthday should be the one day that you can do anything you want to and you should LOVE it!
My birthday also happens to be The Girls official due date, their original due date was Christmas Day but was changed to my Birthday at our 12 week ultrasound which Mr.K had predicted at our very first visit. Even though we knew there was no way I would make it to my due date and I had been "penciled in" to be induced on the 18th of November, I still always hoped to share my birthday with My Girls. And if you know know I don't share, but still I couldn't imagine anything better! Giving Birth on my Birthday, sounds pretty amazing to me!
Last year on my Birthday I was a wreck, not only because I so badly wanted The Girls but because I had lost my job the day before. To tell the truth, I don't remember any of it! This year though I anticipated my Birthday with a bit of happiness, I have come so far in my grief and I have to admit I think I owe a lot of that to all of you. I woke up early that morning with sadness but as Mr.K and I ate breakfast and watched Maggie play I thought of My Girls and smiled...I miss them but I know they are loved and I know they are happy in heaven, and it is a wonderful place to be.

And the Winners are....

I had originally planed on doing this last night but time got away from us and it was so late that I couldn't do it, I had to go to bed! So as Mr. K was running out the door this morning I put all the names in a bowl and he picked the two winners!

And they are...

Congratulations to Marie W at My Expected End and Jus and Kat from In Dylan's Memory!

Also I wanted to say a Big Thank you to everyone that commented yesterday, it was so nice to get on and read all of your wonderful comments! And it made me realize how important commenting is and how good it makes you feel!

25 Days of Giveaways - Day 18!

Hello! Hello! Welcome to my contribution to the 25 Days of Giveaways!
First, I have to say a BIG Thank You to Tina at Living without Sophia and Ellie for putting this all together, you are amazing and it has been GREAT to connect with so many other baby lost mammas and blogs that I had yet to come accross!
For my giveaway I have this ornament!
I found it at a local shop and it had a bow tied to the bottom but I decided I would change it up a bit so I added a crystal and two charms. One charm says love in English on one side and has the Chinese symbol on the the other side. The other charm is a frame.
In the ornament I did for myself I placed an extra tiny picture of the girls in the frame and if you would like I will do the same for you or if you would prefer I will place your angle baby(ies) names in the frame. But I can work that all out with the winners!
Yes that's right I said winners! In honor of my Birthday this coming Friday I decided that I would giveaway two! Mr.K made me promise to let him help so we will put all of the names in a hat late tonight and he will draw the winners! All you need to do to enter is leave a comment!
I wish you all the best of Luck and Thank You for stopping by! Make sure you visit Tina's Blog tomorrow and find out where to go next! And I'm sorry for the quality of the pictures, I took them on my phone because after an hour of trying I could not get the camera to cooperate!

I have no interest in doing laundry today! I need to do some work, but I don't want to do that either! I want to sit here on the couch and just be. So I thought I would upload some Thanksgiving pictures...
Maggie got a new is her new favorite!
Maggie doing her best to look extra cute for the camera. Cousin Daisy Dog...letting us see how well she can behave after her schooling!Maggie and Daisy, who are bestest friends, playing with the new toy! They ran all around the yard just like this for over an hour!
And yes there were people at our Thanksgiving but there aren't any pictures of them...go figure!

Texas Weather

It has been a strange week for weather in this part of Texas. The Sunday after Thanksgiving it was hot and pretty and we took Maggie to the beach with her best cousin dog Daisy...which was tons of fun!
Then Friday we had snow, yes I said SNOW! It was crazy...and sadly the only pictures I managed to take were with my cell phone, so the quality is...horrible!
Saturday was gorgeous and then yesterday it was cold and rainy all day and we just hung around the house most of the day and Maggie looked like this...
But then this morning it is warm and muggy! Go figure that's Texas weather for you!

I am really hoping for snow again! I love snow and sadly live in a place that gets very little of it, even though we have had snow 3 times in the past 5 years! But I am looking forward to the holidays even if I am getting a little stressed out about buying presents. I love to buy presents but at the same time I freak out a bit about spending money...go figure!
I hoping to get the Christmas trees for the girls decorated tonight, they are up just not decorated. I hate that they aren't decorated yet but I want Mr. K and I to do it together and for some reason we just haven't found the right time to do it yet! But it is happening tonight...END.OF.STORY!
Well I better get of this computer and get some laundry done! Hope everyone has a great Monday!
