Merry Christmas Eve! Guest blogger - Aunt Peggy

Today we have a guest post from a very special person in our lives, our Aunt Peggy. 
Aunt Peggy has been a constant in our lives since the day we were born. She used to sneak us candy and yogurt when we were little and she ALWAYS let us drive her car on obscure roads or the beach when we were around 10 15 years old. She is that Aunt, the one that takes her nieces and nephews to do fun stuff that only an Aunt can get away with. She has showered us with love and gifts and legal advice, and now she is doing the same with her great nephews and it's so fun to see! So here is a little word from our Aunt Peggy on this wonderful Christmas Eve, enjoy!
With Christmas tomorrow, I am reminded of what is important in my life.  I recently came across a picture of my beautiful family when my kids were 3 years old and 4 months old.  We were preparing for Tamara’s open heart surgery (she was 5 months old when she had it) and were told that she may or may not survive!  We immediately got her baptized and had a family picture taken because we weren’t sure how long we were going to have her!  I basically lived at Texas Children’s hospital for 5+ months, Shane lived with Big Mar and her family, and Tim worked his ass off trying to support us!
When we found out she had Down Syndrome, the doctors told us that she would never walk, talk, run or play like other kids and that we really should terminate the pregnancy and/or think about putting her in a home or up for adoption!  Trust me, the worst thing a parent wants to hear is “your child has no chance in life!”  I would give anything to be able to walk Tamara into those doctor offices and show them how wrong they were!!  She has been such a blessing to all of us, and she certainly talks (too much at times!), walks, plays and loves and hugs with a fierceness we could all learn from!
I cannot imagine not having my family!  When times get tough or I get frustrated at my work, I am going to remember how truly blessed I am,  and that the things I am getting frustrated about are what keeps this beautiful family of mine going!
I hope you all have a blessed Christmas and a safe and happy New Year!!
Aunt Peggy

Have you downloaded the new album?  Thoughts  So, if you want to purchase or see this rad neon do a drive by on West Alabama…. KINDA Still wanting to plan that ROLLERSKATING party!!!!! - i loved our skating rink in Baytown!  -i can see it disco balls, American Apparel gear, with Beyonce on!  I have a funny feeling bohoGrace is already rocking this out with her girls from the Moonlight Dolls.

bohoJC, her boyfriend & babies.

bohoJC is my beautiful co-blogging best friend.  She has an eye for all things beautiful and truly everything she touches turns, you guessed it - beautiful.   Her family is obviously no exception.  She is a true modern-day renaissance woman: studied art history in college, attends baking schools in San Fran, owned a flower shop that employed bohoJulia and handles a million odds and ends for the growing restaurant empire her boyfriend and partners own.  Oh and dinner parties!  You get invited to a bohoJC dinner party and you change whatever plans you might have had.  

But back to the family, they glow from the inside out and the happy, fun-loving playfulness you see here is truly who they are.  Stylish, uninhibited, kind and a bit quirky.  We giggle with Jacy that she "hasn't quite figured out what she wants to be when she grows up", but you see her with her family and I realize that question is such a silly "inside the box" blah question.  Of all the things she is incredible at, she does nothing better than nurture, inspire and care for this sweet family of hers.  She is comfortable in her skin, maternal, patient and super creative.  

Our friend Brooke Schwab shot this of her family and I hijacked the pics for this post because I love them so much!!  I recently found this quote and it reminded me of bohoJC...and kinda bohoGrace, and well everyone can probably relate a little:

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”
~Steve Jobs

So I hope you enjoyed the pics and getting to know a little bit more about bohoJC, because I promise, as much as you might know there is definitely more!

Happy Monday!!
