A long, long, long vacation

No, we haven't been at the beach for 5 months...just for the week, last week. Will try to do better about posting, promise.

Sky Angel Cowboy

My friend Megan had this on her wonderful blog and I have watched it over and over. I can only hope and pray that I raise my boys to have this much insight into our Father's love for us.

Humbled.

I have been humbled, to my knees, by a few fellow bloggers today.

A mother who only held her precious baby girl for a few hours before she "danced" in Heaven.

A young wife and mother who lost her husband in a tragic car accident just a week ago...she is pregnant with their second baby, but had not told anyone, yet.

And finally, a blog I have followed for a long time, through her whole pregnancy- many of you have seen it linked on my blog. Kelly had her baby yesterday, but baby Harper had extreme pneumonia and many complications. She was air lifted to Oklahoma (Kelly is in Arkansas). Her husband and his parents went to be with the baby and Kelly was left, without her baby and her husband in despair but lifting God up and giving him glory for His plan.

Read over these fellow bloggers. Pray over them and their families, as I have.

I have also seen God's hand in the life of Luke...the nephew of a best friend I told you about in one of my first entries.

I find myself, today, doing something I should do daily, hourly...constantly. But sometimes, in between the errands, and school, and tasks and exhaustion...I forget. And then I have a day like today and I am humbled. I thank you God for my wonderful husband and every single day I have with him. I fell in love with him as a friend, but I fall in love with him all over when I see him as a father and as my husband, he is still my best friend. I thank you for my two healthy children...oh, God- thank you for my babies...thank you for allowing me to be their "mommy".

Missing: 2 elves


So, what happens when your elves are missing? I was looking all over the house for them to help them return to the North Pole tomorrow and we can't find them...anywhere. I told Hill that maybe "Huxley and Bailey returned a day early to the North Pole." hmmmmmmm...WHERE are those elves??(I really hope they didn't decide to hide in one of our trash boxes??!!?!?)

Happy Birthday Jesus!!

We had a birthday party for Jesus today at one of my friend's (and neighbor's) beautiful home. Lauren P. was so sweet to host all of us and the kiddos. We had cupcakes, sang "Happy Birthday to Jesus", and released balloons to Heaven for him. Enjoy the pictures!

O'Christmas Tree

I have been playing with my camera...a lot(Scott said I looked like a Japanese tourist around the house). So, I used Rett's FAVORITE time of the day as a great opportunity to snap away.



I couldn't believe it when I came in the room and Hill was helping Scott decorate the tree. WHEN did he get big enough to do that!?!? When I looked back at pictures, it was amazing to see how fast and how much he's grown in just 4 Christmas'.



All Aboard...

Okay, I know I totally skipped over our Disney trip...that may be attributed to the fact that half of our pictures were totally out of focus. My poor, sweet husband had to listen to me complain about each and every one of them. So, the sweet, sweet thing that he is surprised me with a new camera for Christmas. THANK goodness he gave it to me before our fun filled week so that he wouldn't have to hear me complain about all of those pictures.

I got the new Nikon D90, so if anybody has any tips or recommended manuals, PLEASE let me know. Now, if I have blurry pictures it is totally user error.

With that said, I will get back to Disney after Christmas photos-but, in the meantime, TIS THE SEASON! We had the most fun last night on The Polar Express. Granny, Lori, Dane, James, Will and The Bennett family were all on the same train car with us which made it SO much fun.
