my new outlook on Family!

Our family has been so busy and I hope to get more pictures up, for now these pictures will have to work for now!

As always the Christmas Season get's so packed with special events that Gary and I look forward too. The biggest change this year is Chloe, and how she views her little world around her. every time she looks at the Christmas lights out side our house or the rein deer (pictures to follow shortly) she goes ummm, oahhh maaa maama... Not sure what that means but the best translation I can give is cool what is that mama?

We are also looking forward to our Higgins annual Christmas Party, Chloe get's to meet Santa for the first time! I can't wait to get some awesome pictures!

This holiday season has been a turning point in my life, with various things that have shaped my life and those around me, and now being a mom this is my new out look on life, it might sound a little selfish but I firmly believe it works:

life is too short to worry about those that don't care about you! Make life fun and only do what you want to do, as long as it makes you feel whole inside. The rest of the day to day stuff, and people is just fluff. your real family is what really matters and those are the people you need to watch out for daily and edify those relationships. I have found that it's such a better place to live in, to deeply care about those that mean the most to you and for those that maybe don't care, you have to let them be and know that you did your best.

So you might think why is this coming out of me during the holiday season when this is the season to reconnect with those you loss contact with, right? I wish I could say that I came up with this new logic because of something wonderful that happened, however, not so much in my case. I don't want to get into it too much but I just want to say that my feelings for the ones that love me and are the closest to me mean the most to me in my life. I truly believe that when you are surrounded by the purest love you make your world a better place.

So anyways here are some way cute pictures of Chloe and our first Thanks giving!
