This Christmas was our first in our new place. One in which we searched high and low for, for months and months. This house gives us room to grow, mentally, physically, and spiritually. And affords us an expansive yard in both the front and back of the house. Our house has trees and a clothesline, an attached garage, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a humongous kitchen/dining room and plenty of beautiful windows with which to look out of.
We’ve worked hard for the last 2 months, battling illness and tiredness. Our house is far from finished, as far as improvements go. Still, we have some of our top items off the list. There’s still so much we want to do to transform this house into our vision of home.
Hun’s family came, including a surprise by other family members we thought weren’t going to make it.
Everyone pitched in helping to moderately organize and do a little cleaning. There were some small decorating touches, making great impacts. Hun’s uncle helped install the kitchen floor.
A minor vehicle tragedy happened right in front of our house. Thankfully the driver that crashed into a pole and rental car wasn’t hurt. The power pole did need replacing, which happened so quickly and was exciting for Monkey Boy to watch. The rental car company was nice and the car was easily exchanged.
We even have a small table tree!
Hun’s family took over the kitchen, cooking so much Puerto Rican food! Of course, it was all tasty and there aren’t any leftovers!
There are now living room curtains!
Baby Boy quickly recovered from his fever (likely teething induced) and played and ate and played some more.
Presents were bought, shared, opened, and enjoyed by all.
We made memories. Some older memories were remembered. Laughter and Love abounded.
Everyone enjoyed the house. All was well. And I even shed a few joyful tears!
Hun’s family freely accepts me into their lives. They love me and I feel so grateful they’re part of my life, too. They are a blessing in our lives.
I hope your holiday was filled with joy, love, laughter, play, good food, and grace.
