*Christmas Gifts* (the best little ones ever)

I truly didn't need even one gift under the tree.
*even though Dan surprised me a new Anthropologie purse! Yay!*
But seriously,
I really don't need anything.
I have been given more than I could ever have dreamed of.

God answered our prayers for a baby
by giving us two.

And that makes this the merriest Christmas of all Christmases...
knowing there are two sweet little lives growing inside of me.

Last Christmas, we were in our fifth month of praying for a baby.
But God's plan for us didn't yet include a baby.
We did trust His plan
but wondered why it was the way it was.

And now we can see.

And it's beautiful.

And we are so thankful.

God is such an amazing author.
He wrote our little Stephens' family story
in a way that was better
than we could ever have thought up ourselves.

And I am so thankful for the precious little gifts
that God has given us.
I can't wait for them to be born
so I can tell them about our amazing God
who sent His Son to die for us.

who loves us. 
who answers prayer.
