First, I'd like to thank each of you that reached out after our last post. We've received so many sweet comments and emails; I am truly touched by the outpouring of love via blogging. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

We are making it, and taking it, one day at a time. Bear Clayton doesn't slow down for anything or anyone, so this Momma stays busy!

A look at our recent happenings...

Bear's first snow! And yes, those are Ziplock bag "snow boots".

Another first: Saltwater Sandals! I've wanted Bear to have a pair since before he was born. They arrived tonight, just in time for our Hawaii trip!

Hope you're having a great week! I'll be back soon with one last post before we depart to Honolulu! For those of you that have been, any packing tips are greatly appreciated!
