The Hivory Happy Holiday Season Post


Happy Holidays from the Hivory Family -


This year - 2016 - is not our year!  We are a blended family - what that means for us most of the time is more children, more happy, more love, more smiles, more laughter and sometimes more hard, more sadness, and more tears but mostly more happy! But every other year - the even years, Ian and I are left without all of the children, the smiles, the laughter, and no matter how many years go by -- it doesn't get any easier!  Look at those sweet faces - how can we Christmas without them?




The answer is -- we don't!  Today is the 24th but it is not "our" Christmas Eve and tomorrow will be the 25th but not "our" Christmas day.  The wonderful thing about our family is how well we all get along -- the children are SO loved!!  We really could not ask for anything better for them - they are with the rest of their families celebrating and sharing their smiles and happiness with them this year!

Ian and I busy ourselves during this time and although it is never easy we are comforted by the love, happiness, smiles, and cheer that we know the littles are experiencing. That being said the tears still flow and my heart still aches to be with them during this time!



So, before I take myself to the spa for a day full of pampering I will share these amazing smiles with the rest of you . . .

Thank you to Natalie K for capturing all of this happy!

Aren't they the cutest?  And getting so big! How did we get so lucky?  These kiddos really make our house a home, our hearts so full, our family complete, and our bank account SO empty!  






From our hearts to yours . . . Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah!
