"When you called me to be a Mama, You didn't ask for perfection. But that with every breath, I'd point them to You."

"a portrait of each of my children, once each week, in 2016"

Jaden: After one amazing experience at Holiday Hoopla this weekend, you were an incredibly snuggly boy before bed later that night. You are so independent and grown-up these days, that our snuggle time isn't what it used to be. But you were overcome with happiness and thankfulness on this cozy night and kept leaning into me for extra hugs and chats. I soaked it up as we huddled underneath the tree lights together.

Brandon: You have gotten your fill of Christmas tree decorating, and you were so funny helping Nana Nancy figure out where to put things in their new house. You were also very helpful - assisting her with carrying boxes to and from the garage and helping string garland on their new front porch. You have so much of your Papa Bob and your mommy in you - wanting everything for Christmas time to be just perfect.
