This was my first year without my two older kids for Christmas since they would be spending it with their dad, and I honestly didn't know how I would make it. Christmas has always been my favorite time of year, and I couldn't imagine how hard it would be to not hear their excitement on Christmas eve, and Christmas morning. Heavenly Father knew just what would make it better. Hunter Dan and I had only been married a few months when I found out I was pregnant, it was a bit of a surprise.
She was beautiful, she was brought to me in a big stocking by the nurses, and Santa even brought me a stocking filled with treats on Christmas Eve in the hospital. We had an awesome huge snow fall Christmas Eve night, and Hunter Dan and I spent the evening with our beautiful new baby girl. I got out late Christmas morning. It was wonderful!!!
Jibbity has been very excited for Christmas this year because Grandma will be spending so much time at our house. She keeps saying "this is the best Christmas ever!" Last week she asked me what my best Christmas ever was....I said, "oh that's easy, it was the year I got a beautiful baby girl for Christmas". She said, "thanks Mom", then gave me a squishy hug.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JIBBITY!!!!
I love you more than you could ever know, and am so happy that Heavenly Father knew just what I needed. Thanks for making me smile, and laugh all the time. Now stop growing up will ya!?!?!
