Travels

December 20, 2012

We have had quite the December, traveling so far!

Earlier this month, we boarded the “Polar Express” with some of our dearest friends for a trip to the North Pole.  The train ride was complete with cookies, hot chocolate and of course, the big guy…Santa!  Laney enjoyed the ride and we had fun watching the other kids get so excited to see Santa and sing Christmas Carols.

Since our trip to the North Pole was soooo cold, we decided the next weekend we would head south to Florida!  We had a great visit with Nana and Chad’s Grandparents.  Laney showed off some of her new tricks and we enjoyed Nana and Great-Grandma’s cooking.

We’re looking forward to all our Christmas festivities next week!  I have a feeling Elena is going to find plenty of goodies under the tree this year 🙂  Merry Christmas to all!

 All Aboard!

This is Elena. Our Light. You can see all the goodness and joy that shines from those deep blue eyes. She loves sneezes, yawns, industrial toilet flushes, automatic paper towel dispensers and The Star Spangled Banner. Music is her everything, specifically Moana, Frozen (really all Disney), Queen & Taylor Swift. Nothing makes her squeal quite like swimming, fast boat rides and her two brothers in trouble. In addition to her megawatt smile, Elena reminds us to cherish the smallest of victories, to live in the present, and to daily dwell in a posture of gratitude for every breath and every blessing.  

More About Our Story

I’m Emmalee, an ordinary gal born and raised in the Heartland. Wife to Chad, and Mom to Elena, Calvin & Turner, I spend most my days ridin’ dirty (literally so much trash) in my minivan carting kids to and fro. When I’m not being a Momager, I excel at self-care, cooking gourmet meals my kids won’t eat and deep-diving all the feelings. Most days, my attitude is gratitude, just taking life one step at a time.
