Christian and I were blessed to go away for the evening/day…without kids! It was made possible with the help of Grammie, Pops, Auntie Dora and Auntie Cacey. Yay for family! Grammie sent me this adorable picture of a certain little Santa. If you don’t have a small, fake Christmas tree…you need one! There is nothing better than decorating a mini tree with unbreakable kid ornaments. Last year we set it right in front of the big tree and it helped Addy (who was two) not touch the big tree. This year Addy gets to have it up in her bedroom instead and yes she is very proud of it!

About Marie Klein Burtt
I am the second oldest of six kids. I was shy and quiet as a kid with a vivid imagination. When I was five my parents gave up the fast paced city life for quieter Northern California. I was in heaven, spending my time outdoors, running around barefoot, climbing trees and raising any and every animal I could get my hands on. My parents homeschooled me in an eclectic mixture of un-schooling and world schooling, giving me a life long love for learning. I have a colorful imagination and a different way of thinking about things (something I have just recently discovered is called synesthesia). I am a dreamer and a complete optimist, an artist and lover of glitter, I am right brained through and through and I absolutely love science experiments and art projects. I have a deep passion to help those that have no one to advocate for them. My life’s goal is to be a little more like Mother Theresa, Gladys Alwood and Amy Carmichael every day. I have been married to my bestest best friend for over ten years and he is seriously the glue that holds my crazy together. I can’t imagine adventuring and wandering without him. We are currently raising two very capable and strong willed children that are both very creative and very smart. Being a mother was never something I imagined I would love the way I do and I can’t wait for the Lord to bring more kids into our lives!
