Yesterday Was a Busy Day Full of Joy

We began the fourth Sunday of Advent at mass followed by the baptism of our goddaughter, Olivia Grace. We are so VERY honored to be her godparents. Her parents are two of my former students, who now live next door to the house we're building. Her daddy is Nelson's office mate and quickly becoming his best friend. We are so excited that because she'll be right next door, she will always be a special part of our lives. We love you little Olivia!
After the reception for which I made four lasagnas, helped serve and clean up, we headed out to Nelson's parents' house to celebrate Christmas with his family. The kids thought it was great to get to open presents BEFORE Christmas with the cousins and family they so love.
One of the biggest hits with the boys were the binoculars they received. They immediately wanted to go "hunting" for something.
They also loved that they got their very own suitcases with Lightning McQueen on them.
Nelson's family is such a blessing. They have welcomed me with open arms since day one. And, as you can see from the photo, there is a lot of love in that family.

i agree...your in-laws are some of the best people on the planet. But the fact that they welcomed you with open arms should come as no surprise; you are equally awesome!
