Mrs. Claus spreads a little sunshine

Mrs. Claus at Like Christmas Every Single Day has truly made my day.

I blog almost every day and I do it for my kids.  Each year I turn our blog into a book and I have my favorite photos, stories, and emotions at the time all wrapped up in a nice neat package, but I often wonder if anyone out there ever reads our blog.  I do it for my kids, but I also want to share our lives with others and in return I involve myself in the blogs of others and their lives.  Blogs like Our Journey with Micro-Preemie Twins inspire me, blogs like The Peanut Gallery-Exit Here make me laugh, and photography at Life with the Lairds leaves me in awe.  Monica's blog hop at Pixel Perfert is something I look forward to every week and I've made many friends there.  I enjoy everyone's blogs as they all have something special to offer, so it made my day to learn that Mrs. Claus gave our blog a Sunshine Award.

"Tracy, Monica and MckMama are like "rock stars" in the blogging world. I love their photography and their wonderfully funny stories about their kids/lives! Thanks for sharing with all of us!!"
