Christmas--an amazing story


During my last post I was joyfully marveling at the snow and the Christmas spirit within our old ranch house. I tried to hang on to that emotion as long as I could. We received much more snow than this area is prepared to handle and stories of trauma and Christmas Day woes began trickling through. The temps haven't stayed up enough to make the roads safe--and without snowplows and salt it is pretty treacherous. Many people spent Christmas Eve night trapped in their cars.
Before I went to bed last night I checked on Jenny of The Little Green Notebook as I have been every night for the last week to see if she had her baby yet. I read the most amazing story.
While you are there check out some of her design makeovers-- I am endlessly inspired by her!

Oh what a wonderful read, and a great blog, She sent me everywhere this afternoon. Gosh how much I wish I lived next to an IKEA. I would spend every penny I have there. Maybe it's a good thing I dont have one close by.
Hope you and your family had a great Christmas.

Wow- that is an amazing story! Perfect for this time of year. How ever did she manage to blow dry her hair and do makeup while having a contraction?! Very special birth story though and what a sweet looking new born baby.
