You were MINT to be our daddy...

We the Reisingers wish we could have baked all of you we love some caramel hot chocolate cupcakes but we simply didn't have the time or energy:)

Definition: Chelsea was too pooped!

So for those of you who didn't receive any, please do not worry we love and appreciate all that you do for us and wish you a Merry Christmas.

My photography skills are short of crappy and my dear friend Melissa gave me the recipe.
When Ty was 4 and Rylie was 3 I met Todd.... 4 months later it was Christmas and Santa came on Christmas Eve to read stories and spread cheer

My how they've grown...

Flash forward 2 years


A few more Nativity scenes for my collection

One pineapple, one pomegranate, three pears, apples for the reindeer and one eaten gingerbread house

We make gingerbread houses each year and before I could capture it's beauty it was devoured!

By none other than 4 little gremlins and their candy eating ring leader...

Todd!! ( and yes I am really short as you can see here)

4380 (at least, depending on blowouts and flu season) diapers changed in two years, endless amounts of hugs and kisses, pick up and drop offs from school, breakfasts, lunches, dinner, bedtime and bath routines,time out and tantrums, choosing school shoes, brushing hair and teeth, comforting and loving are just a few of the things our daddy does for us! To show him how much we love what he does we gave him some mint chocolate and wrote;

You were MINT to be our DADDY .... love Ty, Rylie, Noni, and Livie

(and then he shared them with us!)

I love you Todd, as we are approaching 2 years I am even more grateful for your sacrifices and loves that you show us daily. We would all be lost without you...

I wish there was an eloquent way to blog and journal all the woes and triumphs however sometimes just surviving is all I have left in me at the end of each day. I am thankful for people who remind me to hang on and hang in, I am thankful for hugs and comfort when I need it. I am thankful for my beliefs that help me hang on and hang in, regardless of if I make it to church on Sunday. I love my children and husband and I am thankful for all of the support we receive from family and friends far and wide, Pennsylvania and Nanaimo to name a few locations our peeps are:)
Merry Christmas and as Dora would say Felice Navidad

How has no one posted on this yet?! I guess everyone was busy with Christmas like I was when I first read it. Those cupcakes are so cute! What a sweet post for your hubby. I love your crazy life Chels! Keep sharing!
