It goes without saying that the reason for Christmas is the BEST gift to all of us, without HIM, not only would there be real no reason to celebrate anything, but basically life would suck. ANYways, my other special gift from God for Christmas is that it is COLD!!! No snow, but it's cool, chilly, frigid, sweater weather, C.O.L.D. here. And I LOVE it. Thank you God! And finally, the presents that are amazing EVERY day, not just Christmas, my sweet hubby and babies. Thank God for my family, my extended family and my amazing friends. I feel so blessed.
I hope this Christmas season, you have the gift of Christ and His salvation, first and foremost. I hope you have the gifts of Peace, Love & Joy, and all of God's blessings and promises in your life! I hope your Christmas is amazing and somehow the day goes by very slowly and you can enjoy all the blessings of Christmas. Merry Christmas! Love the Solers!
Quinn's first-ball/christmas themed birthday party was a blast. A nice, *family* event with lots of yummy food, laughs and Quinny had a great time. I've never seen a baby scarf down a cupcake so fast in all my life!!
Quinny in the ball pit! (aka baby pool filled with balls!)
Well, when I said "ate" a cupcake, I guess I should've specified, DEMOLISHED a cupcake, some of it went into his mouth!

Tio & Kat (Quinn was over pictures, no reflection of how he feels towards Tio & "Ms Kat"!!)
Uncle David, Lukie & Jackson (Auntie Beth, not pictured, but thanks so much for coming out before work!!)

Gavin, is my hero for going Christmas caroling to empty houses with me when no one else would.
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, we wish you a merry christmas!

Elvis said it well....(ourfirst dance).......
Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be
Take my hand, take my whole life too
For I can't help falling in love with you!
Our wedding was such an amazing day! I just remember the butterflies, the good friends and family being so amazing, and I remember seeing Guillermo for the first time. It was breath taking, overwhelming feelings of love and happiness and I am sad I don't have a video to relive it again and again. I am so blessed to be married to the best person I have ever met in my entire life, not to mention the best friend I could ever have. It's amazing how you could love someone exponentially more and more every year and time and time again thru the years realize how life does not work without them. If this is how awesome the first four years are, I can't wait for more!!

To my sweet heart, angel man, Quinn. The moment I saw you I fell head over heels in love with you. I treasured each snuggly moment with you and prayed for time to slow down. You brother adores you and you are the sparkle in your Daddy's eye. The past two and a half years have been the best years of my life- I hope you & Judah always know how much Mama loves you. I love you Quinny, Happy Birthday!

What a difference a year makes!! Every year we visit the lights, like most families, but for us the lights are very special. We had our wedding reception in James Island County Park on December 16th. Every year, we try to go to the lights to celebrate that event and just have fun as a family. Every year we take a family picture in front of the same tree. I have one when I was pregnant with Judah, then last year with itty-bitty Quinn and then this year, with my two big boys! We are sooooo blessed, not a day goes by when I do not thank God for all of His blessings to us. And we are so blessed to have such amazing friends and family around us- so to those of you reading this, who are those friends and family- we are so blessed by you and I hope we tell you and show you how much we love you guys!
