Hammie is completely obsessed with elephants. So when he saw this family of elephants in target last week, he made it his mission to buy it. He worked so hard all week long -asking for jobs around the house and getting them done all on his own- and earned enough to go buy them today. Could he smile any bigger? πŸ˜„

Making gingerbread houses with cousins at the farm. Hammie was not at all interested in decorating his, he just wanted to eat it 😁.

The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. - John 1:14. Wishing you all a joy-filled Christmas!

Last year, I decided to try something new with our kids for Christmas. We cut waaay back on gifts, and instead gave them a booklet with a coupon for an activity for each month of the coming year. (Some coupons are for "bigger" things, like a visit to a museum, or a trip to sky zone, while some are freebies, like a baking class with me, or camping with daddy. There are also 12 coupons in the back that they can use anytime they want for things like a movie night, or having sprite with dinner (a big deal for our kids!), or going to the dollar store.) I wasn't sure how it would go over, but after a year of getting a family experience each month, they begged for another coupon book this year. I love the idea of giving experiences instead of stuff, and I love that we were able to enjoy fun family time all year long. This is our new must-have each Christmas!

After many years (and almost 5 kids), this charcoal from our honeymoon is finally framed and hanging. It gives me so much happiness every time I look at it, and reminds me of the sweetest, most romantic thing anyone has ever done for me. Not only did Keith take me to Italy, but he planned the entire trip by himself and kept the destination a surprise until we showed up at the airport the day after our wedding. I love surprises, and I love Italy, and there were so many special moments in that trip, and it all comes back each time I glance at the charcoal. So thank you, honey, again and again for the honeymoon, the gelato, the boat ride, the evenings in San Marco square, and most of all - the surpriseπŸŽ‰ and the memories! I love you! #besthusbandever @schaeferkeith

We had the great joy of seeing sweet Magnolia baptized today. So thankful for God's promises to his covenant children, and reminded of his great grace to us.

Sometimes she has trouble eating because she can't. Stop. Smiling. Also, trouble falling asleep. For the same reason. #happiestbabyever #itsagoodkindofproblem

I'm so thankful for these people and for all the ways they have become my family: marriage, adoption, or birth. They mean the world to me, and I can't imagine life without them! #adoptionrocks #nationaladoptionmonth #thankful
