We are feeling the Holiday Spirit!

Things have been crazy in the Presley house. As some of you know Jason was laid off on Thursday. It has been hard BUT we are already feeling the Lord's hand in our lives. We feel very blessed and are grateful for the blessings and opportunities that are coming our way. It is not easy and at times I feel like I don't have control of anything BUT at the end of the day I do have control over my attitude and perception of this whole situation. I am choosing to be happy and stay positive. If you know me than you know that I think my smile is my best accessory and that has not changed even with this new challenge. Having the most wonderful husband and best friend sure helps. Jason you are amazing and we are sure lucky to have you!!!! You are an amazing man and every day I can't believe how lucky I am to be married to my best friend!

"If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."

Over the past week we have enjoyed getting into the Christmas spirit. We have stayed busying finding lots of wonderful things to do to get us in the spirit!....

We trimmed our tree!

Hung our stockings!

Collin... well he ... watched! wink!

We wrote to Santa...

We went with friends last night to see the
Christmas lights in Naples!
This one is always my favorite!

It was a blast... well until this little guy
fell and busted his head. We feel so
bad E.

We have had LOTS of fun and it is just beginning!!!!

I am so sorry to hear about Jason's job. It is very hard but you will get through it. Andy got laid off from his job back in May and things were very hard at first, but like you I changed my attitude and things always seem brighter and I know the lord will bless us. I am so glad that you have a great attitude. Things will get better. What is jason profession? I will let you know If I hear of anything?
