Almost

Almost have 1/2 the boxes unpacked.

Almost feels settled. 

Almost Christmas.

Almost have internet in our new home

  22. I like all your "almosts" but there is at least one great big one that's beyond "almost". Ruby Grace is beyond almost beautiful; beyond almost filled out and plumping up; beyond almost an amazing gift from God! And I am beyond almost in love with this precious little girl! Happy 18-month birthday, Ruby.
