Merry Christmas!

Dear Friends..

As my favorite week of the whole year rolls around, it reminds me of so many things. I was telling Mattie the other night, I have had a deep conviction this year of the true reason for Christmas. I know we all know the true meaning, but sometimes I am truly overwhelmed that a tiny baby came so many years ago to be our savior!! One of my favorite Christmas songs sings, "His ears have heard an angel symphony... still Mary had to rock her savior to sleep..." I am humbled to think that he came to save the least of us, the ones that are so busy, stressed, & truly forget the meaning of Christmas-- especially standing in the mall traffic or finding out that something that we realllllyyy want is sold out! He is here with us! always! in the good, the bad, and the trying. Celebrate each day that He gives you and know that you are so blessed!!!

In this crazy season, take a second and thank the baby Jesus, who came to save us!

What an amazing gift he gave.. the ultimate gift!

I am so thankful for you & truly am blessed to have you as a part of my life!!

The very Merriest Christmas wishes to YOU!

.....Glory to the newborn KING.
XOXO, Aubs

We had a great Thanksgiving- we had a family open house the night before Thanksgiving which was a lot of fun. On Thanksgiving Day, we went to the Naish house to hang out with family. Grandmommy came in town from Clayton, so we spent time with her as well as with the rest of my family. It was a relaxing day and really nice to just chill and be with family.

Blue House

The blue house has held many memories, good and bad, for us. I still remember when we found out that Charlie would let us live on the farm. We were so excited, just starting to think about how our life would be together after we got married. As we are just a few days away from moving and leaving the blue house, it is bittersweet for me. This is the place that we came home from our honeymoon as husband and wife :), first time we started our jobs and our life together, we got Bentley, shared so many hardships through Mattie's diagnosis. I will never forget where I was when he called me to tell me that his Dr. had called and told him about his white blood cell counts.I cried as loud as humanly possible, and the blue house was there. It didn't judge me and let me pour my heart out. It happened in the blue house. We also grew so much in the blue house. We learned what it meant to truly follow the Lord's will for our life and prayed that we would be constantly reminded of His love for us. We have taken walks down the driveway, sat on the porch while Mattie smoked many cigars, threw the ball to Bentley, talked about our life goals and dreams... Though I am happy to rid myself of the smelly basement, sooo excited to have a disposal, can't wait to have more than 1 bathroom!, wheel my trash a short distance down the drive, the blue house will always hold a lot of memories. I am so thankful that God blessed us with it and know it was a HUGE burden lifted when we felt like our life stopped.

But it didn't.. and for that I am grateful.

Blue house... I love you!
