25 Days of Christmas Dec 23

Oh we are having SUCH fun, and now daddy has joined our family so I feel much more complete. I love being in Michigan, but it means extended time away from him. The boys were very happy to see him after naps today too.

Today's ornament for Mama Bear's carnival is an ornament I got in high school from my friend Anna. I don't even think Anna's family celebrated Christmas, at least not traditionally with trees and gifts. Help me out here Megan, does my memory fail me? Anyway, this ornament is very shiny and pretty on my tree, and is another one that my kids can touch and I have no worries about. I also love remembering back to high school and the friendships I had...some I still have!

"House News" was in yesterday's post...we have an offer, but we counter offered due to some...stuff. Well it was close to what we wanted, but not quite. They had some things they wanted that didn't seem quite fair. We'll see what happens, but I doubt we'll know until after Christmas. You can pray that we find a house we would like to live in...of all the houses we had on a list to see should we get an offer, all but one or 2 have sold and those that are left we had already decided wouldn't be good options for our family. There is one more that we found, but we don't know much about it...maybe the one, maybe not. We do NOT want to move into a house just to move. That was NOT the reason we put our house up for sale, it was so that we could live somewhere that would fit our family for a long time. Always exciting!

Yay!!! How exciting! I'll say a prayer that things get ironed out with the offer & counter offer.

Have a Merry Christmas!

Sorry I have not been checking blogs very well. You are right! I loved your Christmas pictures in the newer post. Your boys are so cute! That is awesome that you guys have an offer on the house, that seems so quick, which is great! I'll be praying for the offer and finding the right new house!
