So lovely!

ha! Is this what's in my future?! Oh, boy.

I know what you mean. My mom was dad also so I can appreciate having a husband to help out. I love watching my hubby and the kids. Those are the most precious things in the world to me. I wish I could capture each and every last one of them.

E looks so cute in her little snow white dress. That's adorable.

well it's the loveliest rabbit trail tale a magical place. happy holidays to your sweet family- to you, your prince and princesses. xoC

Crystal - What a great post.

I just wanted to thank you for that amazing photo of your daughter and husband playing dress up. I work hard to broaden my 5 year old son's definition of what is powerful. I showed him that photo of a man in the army (which holds such power for him right now) playing dress up and it started a wonderful conversation. We talked about how your husband is in the army but how it's his job, he's also a daddy who is strong when he plays with his daughter. I'm having trouble writing the gist of our conversation but really I wanted to say thank you.

It's a lovely little christmas tree. Sometimes I'm surprised at all the different colors trees now come in. Pretty pictures in pink.

Hi there from New Zealand. I came across your blog looking at the oven mitt tutorial (which I'm about to make for Christmas presents, thank you! :)) and saw this post, which is lovely :) My daughter has an amazing daddy like that too. Merry Christmas to you!

What a touching, beautiful post. I love reading about your happy family - you are all very blessed to have each other, and to have a mother who prayed so diligently for you.

I was at Walmart yesterday but all I saw was a white tree - I would've snatched up a pink one for sure. Eve would've lost her mind!


Family can be so amazing. You are a lucky lady...although I am not sure I believe in luck. You are probably just a good picker!


So great to talk to you the other day while you were out and about!
Love this post, like all the others... I don't know how you find the time SuperMom!!!
When you write your book- I'll be first in line to buy it :)
Love ya and Happy Holidays-

He is an awesome man and an awesome daddy!
You are a blessed lady, and I'm totally sure he's equally blessed by you!
Lots of love, and thanks for sharing!

I have been waiting to see the pink tree and my oh my what more could there be. Your post brought tears to my eyes. I am raising my boy, much like your Mom (being both parents since he was 2). I heart your post - bless you for being grateful out loud. My Longest Year has made a difference in my world, thanx.
p.s. think the pix of daddy and e would be a great Christmas Card - photoshop in a and you and your set.

Love this post! You are blessed indeed!

This post made me smile from the pink tree and the little princess decorating it to the sweet daddy stuff at the end. And then the teary-eyed comment from your mom. You're definitely blessed. :) Hope you have a wonderful Christmas if I don't get a chance to pop by again before then. :)

Oh my gosh. I'm all teary-eyed right now. God has answered my prayers for you, little Crystal Lee. Yes, I knew that. Tonight you reminded me. (((Thank you)))

~ always, mom xo
