Welcome to the Roe household blog. We're attempting to post 365 days of pictures in a Roe. Cork and I have been married since 2002 and welcomed identical daughters in August of 2009 after a struggle with infertility. Our girls were definitely worth the wait and I say they were destined to be here because they were conceived on my birthday, due on my sister's birthday and born on my grandma's birthday. What are the chances of that! We welcomed our third daughter in June of 2012. We all fell in love with her right away. She has two amazing older sisters who love to watch over her.

Merry Christmas Eve! We've been busy cooking today. I made these amazing desserts. Yum! Home made vegetarian mince pies and a brandy butter to put on top. Fresh out of the oven, they might be the best dessert I've ever made and that's saying a lot since I'm definitely a chocolate person.
We tried a new church today. I know that trying a new church for a Christmas eve service does not always give the best idea of what a church will really be like. Our old church lost all 3 pastors this past year, did not have enough kids and was too far from home. We tried one much closer to home and really liked it. We didn't have to fight the kids the entire service. They really enjoyed all the music and there were a ton of other kids there. I'm hoping that the weekly services are as great as the Christmas eve service was. If so, I think we've finally found the church we've been looking for.
