While this season has brought much busyness and a great deal of activity, in its stillness I have noticed the amazing blessings. For it is in this season that the blessings abound much more noticeably. There is family. Friends. A home. Food. And Lord knows so, so much more that is beyond the necessity!
We have spent time with my family on Christmas Eve. Enjoying a dinner, that I did not have to cook (thanks Ash and Jessi) at a home that is more welcoming than any other (thanks Mom & Dad). Relaxing as much as one can with 4 small children on Christmas Day! Conversations and laughs with family. All of these things are priceless blessings to me!
Christmas Morning we spent time at home with our children, reveling in the amazement of the season. We sang Happy Birthday to Jesus together throughout the days, read the birth story and answered many a question about how it actually happened from very inquisitive toddlers!
We have played in the snow, entertained my husbands family and made it through Scott's recovery with seemingly no pause! God has continued to show Himself true and evident to us in the large and very small things in our lives!
Scott and I have gotten to enjoy each other on his extended vacation from work. More laughs, tears, and words spoken in the past 10 days than...well...probably the last year!!! With 4 small children and 2 hours a night to communicate...well communication just sometimes doesn't happen too often!
For unto us a child is born!

Alicia is wife, mother, and creator of Baby Elephant Ears. Baby Elephant Ears was created out of parental concern, not financial desire. In 2005, when their second child was an infant, he cried all the time and just couldn't seem to get comfortable.
After seeking advice and suggestion from the medical community and alternative medicine, they eventually ended up in the chiropractors office where their baby was successfully treated for a subluxation, discomfort most likely the result of the strain during labor, which was now being exacerbated by the normal lack of infant neck strength. Only proper neck, head, and back alignment would offer him relief. When they couldn't find a product to give their baby the necessary support, Alicia took matters into her own hands and crafted her own infant support pillow. The first Baby Elephant Ears was born!
