I just wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. This Christmas is so special for DJ and I because we have Makenna with us. Last year we were anxiously awaiting her arrival and talking about how she would be here this Christmas and how fun it would be. We were right! She is so much fun and I have had a great time sharing the holiday season with her. She is so cute and she learns new things everyday. I can't believe how big she is already. We are so thankful that she is our daughter and that we have the honor of being her parents. We see parenthood as an honor and a privilege. As many of you know we tried very hard to get pregnant and lost a baby in the process. Someday we will have our complete family in heaven with our lost baby but for now we are overjoyed to be Makenna's parents. She is the most precious baby ever. She is so funny and keeps us laughing on a daily basis. This Christmas season as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ we are thanking him for our many blessings, first among them, our amazing daughter Makenna Nicole. We thank all of you for your many prayers through our trying time of trying to have a baby and for celebrating with us as we welcomed our new daughter into the world. This Christmas and with the Christmases to come we hope teach our daughter the true meaning of Christmas. We love you all and hope you have a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
