December Recap 2015

This month was packed with event after event. We had plans every night before Christmas but 3!! It was so much fun though. And as much as we had going on, there was still so much down time and relaxation. I'm so thankful for such a fun, sweet month and advent season.

 My sweet friend, Nicole, hosted a girls night/For his glory party. Basically we all brought gifts that represented our walks with Christ this year. We then each told the story behind them when someone chose our gift. I went home with a pillow that represented "Rest" to a girl who came. I love that every time I look at it now I'm reminded to stop in Rest in Him.  photo IMG_2071.jpg

 WE RAISED ALL THE FUNDS FOR OUR ADOPTION!!!! This was me mailing out the very last of the shirts.  photo IMG_2097.jpg
