Thank you for visiting my blog today. Originally it was started in 2006 as a way to chronicle our overseas adventure, but it has turned into a place where I share my heart after my husband's untimely death at the age of 40. You can read more about his brief, but fierce battle with a rare cancer on his caring bridge site: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/rob_murphy.

our tree, all decorated
On Christmas Eve we open our stockings. The kids get a Hallmark ornament every year and some kind of candy. This year they each picked out the kind of candy they wanted in the stocking. Sarah chose Milky Way candy bars, Noah choose Skittles, and Micah choose Nerds. Sarah's ornamtnet was an angel on the phone with a cup of coffee. Noah's ornament was a camping scout scene with Snoopy and Woodstock. micah's ornament was a reindeer kid playing super hero.
After the ornaments we went to our church's Christmas Eve candle light service and then to a holiday gathering at someone's house with all our church family. It was a wonderful time. Mike and Jessica McDonald opened up their home and made us all feel so welcome.
