This year we had a wonderful Christmas. Not a lot of gifts and I have been once again recovering from another surgery but our hearts were filled with so much joy and we focused more on the true spirit of Christmas, more on our Savior, more on family and spending quality time with one another. We are so happy. Mike took the week off from work to help me with recovery and he has been so amazing. He has gone above and beyond to make sure I had everything I needed. He has sat by my side and watch the chick flicks just so that I knew he was there and didn't get bummed out for being down at Christmas. My life is so blessed and I could not ever ask for more. Christmas Day was spent with Mike's family and it was great.

Dashing Through December

This has been an eventful month for us. Maddy had her Christmas piano recital. She played "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" and did such a good job. Then the following week was her musical theater recital. I was so impressed with the show. We were sitting with Mike's mom and dad watching the performance and Mike's Dad leaned over to Mike's mom and asked, "why isn't Madyson smiling and singing? She should be more like the girl beside her who is smiling and doing such a great job." Mike's mom said,"who are you talking about?" He pointed to the girl next to Madyson. His mom said, "THAT IS MADYSON!!" We were dying, Maddy got contact lenses this month and he had not seen her with them in so he didn't recognize her. So funny!! Maddy did such a great job and looked so beautiful!
