Bah humbug.

So between the $229 I had to shell out for new tires,

$135 for our sweet Sadie's ear infection (among other things),

oodles of Christmas gifts purchased (although I was quite proud of the amount of money I'd saved on many of them and the fact that you'd never know I saved said money because they're just so.darn.great),

the not-so-mysterious-anymore HOA bill that shows up every December (how nice of them to time it that way) even though I can't for the life of me figure out what the heck they actually do,

the $1,000+ dollars we still owe the stupid hospital for Avery's just-a-little-traumatic birth,

and other unexpected bills/expenses that appeared in our mailbox this month,

I'm feeling rather Scrooge-like.

BUT.

We are fortunately able to cover aforementioned expenses (albeit barely), and just as fortunately, my sweet little girl is more entertained by a table than by toys (hehe!).

In our Lifegroup over the past couple of months, we've been studying God's provision, and I have a feeling that this lesson will come in handy frequently over the next year as we learn to do with much, much less than we've become accustomed to.

Bah humbug Merry Christmas!
