Merry Christmas!

Well, Miss Chayse celebrated her first Christmas today! We opened presents last night on Christmas Eve and then went to the fire house for dinner tonight with Nathan. Chayse did well opening her gifts and was a very happy girl. We feel so blessed to have her here, safe and sound this Christmas. I will say, this season has had a different meaning to it this year as we are so aware of the blessings we have to have this little girl with us this Christmas season. Today, as we celebrated the birth of one precious baby that was born so many years ago, we said a prayer of thanks for another.
This was Chayse opening up her presents...

Chayse getting ready for bed on Christmas night with her Christmas Elf! This is the elf that has become Chayse's Christmas Elf. Francois is his given name but I am not sure Chayse will be able to say it next year so we will have to see what his nickname becomes! This elf will come every Christmas and will be here with us for the month of December.

From our house to yours, Merry Christmas!

P.S. Francois came to us from a very wonderful lady named Sara. If you ever need an addition to the family, check her out @ or @
