I love…

Merry Christmas!   I am thinking about so many things I am thankful for—so I am calling this post “I love…” because, well–you’ll see…

(in no particular order…)

1.  I love my family!  Here is a picture of all my guys! It was taken before we went to church on Sunday.  They all wore their jackets–to dress up a bit because both boys were singing in church.  I’m a sucker for navy blazers…

2.  I love our new puppy!  We just got Molly yesterday. She is an 8-week old Goldendoodle.  So far, she is very sweet and very good!  The kids love her and so glad to finally have a pet!

3.  I love my new Merrell shoes that my mom just bought for me!  

4.   I love our Christmas tradition of decorating the Gingerbread House.  We just buy one of the kits, but we buy extra candy to go on it.  The kids absolutely love it—of course we eat some candy along the way!  Here is our one from this year—before and after…

5.  I love that Christopher drew the Nativity this year.  I told him I’m going to frame it–I’ll post that picture later —it is something I’ll treasure forever

6.   I love that Luke’s class did a Christmas Play.  Thank you to his teachers for having the patience for that!  14 four year olds!  Luke was a shepherd and it was another moment to treasure.  

7.  I love Chris Tomlin’s version of Joy to the World

8.  I love Christmas lights—I’m thankful to Jerel for talking me into adding color to ours this year!!

9.  I loved going to the Sabbaghs tonight to look at the crazy lights in their neighborhood. (crazy in a good way!)–and loved having hot chocolate and cookies with good friends!

10.  I love not having to wear my wig anymore—even though i don’t “love” my hair–I love knowing there’s WAY more important things in life than hair!!

11.  I LOVE that I have an 8 week break from my oncologist and that he says I have “no measurable disease!”

12.  I love those little Clementine oranges!

13.  I love living this life with Jerel–he is awesome and I am constantly amazed that he chose me!!

    What a great list. I love seeing from this list that you are still the same sweet, genuine Susan who continues to grow up in Christ.

    Well, I love….reading your blog postings. I’m one of those sneaky blog readers that you probably never new actually read yours. I read every one and they never cease to bring a smile to my face, a tear to my eye, or the occasional lol moment (usually from something little Lukemister does or says). I just wanted you to know that you have at least one faithful reader (and I’m sure many many more) who is encouraged by your posts. Just keep on keepin (Jerel would want me to add a “playa” in there, but note that I refrained…well kind of) because your writings are inspirational to all your friends. 🙂
