Paxton turned 15 months old! That boy is something else. Seriously. Love him!
We had a tragic loss of such a wonderful man. My aunt lost her husband so we were forced to say goodbye. He is seriously missed so much already & it still doesn't seem real.
After a great year ending in tragedy we forced a smile for our kids & celebrated Christ's birth on Christmas.
Looking forward to a new year. The Ames family sure is blessed. The Lord is so good to us.
Life is too short! Love as much as you can!
