2009 was year of job loss and major pay cuts in our home. It was a humble year of savings depletion and cutting corners. It was stressful and worrisome. It was and still is scary.
Thankfully we weren't alone. Our parents were there with a helping hand, just when we really needed them. Again and again. Their love and support for our family is a lifesaver and is something we can only hope we'll be able to do for our children when they're on their own.

The magic and wonder of Christmas as seen from a child's eyes!

In the end, we only bought presents for the girls and frugally collected and added the gifts mailed to us from out of area family. On Christmas Eve, Grammy and Grampy added their presents and it was perfect!
