Hello dear friends!

We are so blessed to have you in our lives! As much as I would love to send out Christmas cards to all those we love…there are just so many that it unfortunately didn’t happen this year. So, I thought I would take a moment to share a few highlights from our family this year.

The biggest highlight would have to be the arrival of our precious little boy, Caleb. He has brought so much joy to our lives and we can’t imagine our world without him!

He’ll be 7 months at the end of December and is just beginning to crawl. His two little teeth make his smile all the more endearing…although, they make the occasional chewing on your finger a little more painful 😉

We love seeing him grow…which is happening waaay too fast! His little personality is beginning to shine through and he seems to be a typical first child…never going to sleep when there is company and paying rapt attention to the conversation going around him.

We are so blessed to have family and friends who love and pray for him…and his parents!

Jose and I have been adjusting to life as parents and praise be to God who has given us strength and joy throughout the learning curve and sleepless nights. We have been learning just how patient, kind, and loving our Heavenly Father is to us as we seek to imitate that towards Caleb…nothing reminds us more of how we are flawed than being parents and we are grateful for His guidance in raising Caleb.

Another big even this year was being able to move into our own home. I am so proud of Jose and all the hard work he put into this house making sure it would be perfect for us. Even after work was done he would go and work on the yard to make sure it would be perfect. (Special thanks to my suegro {father-in-law} for giving up of his own time to help with that project!)

Ever since I was young I imagined having a home where I could raise my own family and be able to host friends and family. We have been granted that blessing and pray that we might be able to use our home as a means to bless others.

Of course, this year though filled with blessings has been filled with times of testing and growth and we are ever so thankful for those of you who keep our little family in your prayers. We have so much to learn in this journey of life and are grateful for every moment we have together.

May God bless you and your family as you celebrate His love this Christmas season.

Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
