Beautiful Button (my preemie) was baptized on the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe surrounded by the love of family and friends. Oh, where does the time go?

JellyBean's first Christmas
Even the stomach flu couldn't keep them from decorating for Jesus that year!

I am missing my littlest one who was due to be born this month; another joyful bundle supposed to be adding a bit to the hustle and bustle and beauty of Christmas.

Bring on the celebrations!!!
