Happy Birthday, Jesus

So I got this ornament for a swap that ended up being cancelled and so it gets to stay on my tree forever and ever (just so we are clear I was going to try to steal it back for myself anyway) and I'm so glad, because I definitely needed a reminder about the "reason for the season." As I rush around trying to find the perfect pillow pets (a dog and a bumblebee p.s.) I so easily forget that Christmas is to celebrate the birth of our SAVIOR. Thank you God for sending your SON to SAVE us. Thank you. Thank you. Happy Birthday, Jesus.

A sign from above

There could quite possibly be no clearer sign from above that we are on the right path than going downtown, finding a parking spot on the front door step of the office you are going to, finding some random change, having the nicest state employee in the history of the earth help you at the window, get your documents so quickly that you make it back to the meter with 12 minutes to SPARE! That is exactly what happened to a friend and I today as we went downtown to take care of some adoption paperwork. Yes, God was shining down on us today! Major shout out to the Davidson County Office of Vital Records and the sweetest lady ever at their front window!!
