HO HO HO !!!
these crazy photos where taken six years ago...we had all just gotten 
our eyes checked that week when i found these silly glasses at the dollarama.

i still get a good giggle every time i look at them...
i think they make up for the fact that my kids have never and probably 
never will - have their pictures taken on santa's lap.

but most of all, i love them because they remind me 
of the beauty of our imperfections, our brokenness, 
and how through all of it, we are growing an able-ness, a willingness, a strength 
to embrace each other in our most vulnerable true-est level. 

as a new mom, i remember dreaming and trying to grow a perfect family 
especially after birthing a beautiful, beautiful boy
 and then the most adorable baby sister for him.
now, as a mom of teens, i'm truly seeing the craziness and impossibility
 of that old dream and instead i am starting to really see the beauty 
of embracing the imperfections and the messiness of our life together.


before i sign off for a few days... 
in order to sink deeper into the chocolate almond bowl and the holidays,

i wanted to extend 
sincere and warm holiday wishes 
to all of you.
