O Christmas tree...

This is my favorite- our 6 stockings. We bought a stocking for Matthew last year, knowing we would need it soon! We will fill it with notes this year, telling Matthew what we will do to make sure that we can live with him forever one day.

My three cuties, making the neighbor Christmas gifts! I love free labor. They seriously love helping, and they had 16 jars of cookie ingredients filled in no time.


Our tree- this is just to fulfill Lorenne's request! This pic looks a little out of focus?? We fill our tree with every ornament we can find, but it's so fun- we have lots of memories from all our childhoods! If you haven't posted your tree yet, please do it!

I like the picture of the stockings. Such a good idea. Your tree is beautiful. I wanted to thank you for the info about the Draper Temple Openhouse. I'm excited to take my kids to see it. Thanks for sharing.

I got a little teary when I read about Matthew's stocking. It's such a good idea. It's amazing the good things that come from our trials? You are so awesome and a good example to the rest of us.

Good idea Heather. I really like your tree too! The free labor is fabulous, isn't that why we had kids? (j/k!)

Wow, what an AMAZING way to remember Matthew! I love that idea. You are such a great mom. You will definitely have to keep me posted on your family plans! (I already showcased your cute post about humanitarian kits at the D.I. - I hope you don't mind! You are just such a great example...and it doesn't hurt that your kids a DARLING either.)
