Merry & Bright

Christmas 2011 was a bittersweet day for me as it's probably the last I'll have with my mama see we've stopped all chemo because her body stopped responding to it so she's staying as comfortable as possible and letting the cancer take it's course. It's hard to watch but I know it's what is best. It was also however the best day because it was my first time to experience Christmas as a mama, my sweet baby girl enjoyed her day immensely even if she was more interested in the wrapping paper and boxes than the actual gifts :).

Hope your Christmas Holiday was MERRY & BRIGHT!

and our joy filled mantel with 3 stockings such a blessing to take this photograph and being a family of 3 this Christmas!

I am immensely blessed and had a beautiful day gifts were given and I got some lovely things but my favorite gift was the treasured moments of being mommy for the first time at Christmas :)

May 2012 bring many blessings to all!
