Children sleeping
snow is softly falling.
Dreams are calling
like bells in the distance.

We were dreamers not so long ago.
But one by one we all had to grow up.

When it seems the magic slipped away,
we find it all again on Christmas day...

Believe in what your heart is saying,
hear the melody that's playing.
There's no time to waste,
there's so much to celebrate.

Believe in what you feel inside,
And give your dreams the wings to fly.
You have everything you need,
If you just believe.

Trains move quickly to their journey's end.
Destinations are where we begin again.
Ships go sailing far across the sea.
Trust in starlight, to get where they need to be.

When it seems that we have lost our way,
we find ourselves again on Christmas day...

Believe in what your heart is saying,
hear the melody that's playing.
There's no time to waste,
there's so much to celebrate.

Believe in what you feel inside,
And give your dreams the wings to fly.
You have everything you need,
If you just believe.

If you just believe.
If you just believe.
If you just believe.
Just believe.
Just believe.

I really like this song because it applies to not just Christmas. When we believe in ourselves, in others,and in God amazing things can happen. Just remember this Christmas to give more than you receive and to believe and not doubt. Merry Merry Christmas!

A note of thanks!


In all the hurry and scurry of the new season I forgot to thank my mom and dad for a great vacation over Thanksgiving break. We had an amazing week filled with sleep, peppermint bark, the infmaous Wii, laughs, stories, play time with the nieces and MUCH MUCH more. Everyone went above and beyond to give us a wonderful break and for that we are very thankful. I firmly believe that family, although sometimes wild and crazy, can be very therapeutic and ultimately the answer to life's most troubling questions. Thank you MAMA and PAPA for a great week. I put up a picture of us stuffing our faces on the airplane and a video of us all playing the Wii!

THIS IS US!

Halloween Fun!


Soo yesterday was Halloween and oh how fun it was! Jake, Paul, and I went to the mall to watch all the kiddies in their cute little costumes. The cutest one was this little boy in a Curious George outfit absolutely screaming his head off. I think sometimes Halloween is more for the enjoyment of the parents. Afterwards we gorged ourselves on the cheap leftover candy from Albertsons and Little Caesar Hot and READY delicous Pizza. I can't think of a better Halloween. Jake picked Star Wars for our movie and Paul ended up doing homework and I slept. Jake admits that he has a nerdy spot in his heart for Star Wars and just the fact that we gave him the option to chose Star Wars validated his little nerdy spot. I have to say I never knew about this nerdy side before we got married, but since I love everything about Jake, bring on the nerdy! ANYWHO, we only had a few fun (our scary faces) pictures, but that was our Halloween. Hope you all had a Happy Halloween as well.

Sunday Fun!



So yesterday, Paul, Jake and I got together and had some picture taking fun. I have to admit it was very therapeutic to be silly for a couple hours and not have to act like a mature adult. We love having my brother Paul live with us, he brings so much love and life to our home. Sometimes its like I'm 6 again and Paul is 8, except this time we TOTALLY get along and we aren't fighting or making fun of each other. What can I say, we were kids then! Anywho, yesterday was just a fun day filled with Blokus competition, camera use, and GOOD FOOD! I posted some of the pics so you can all enjoy them as much as we did.
