Merry Christmas 2007

To you and yours, have a very blessed Christmas filled with family, faith, love, and peace.

A Foggy Friday Before Christmas

It started out foggy this morning here in Kansas City; perfect to match my brain this morning.  Do you ever have days like that where you feel as if your brain hasn't quite kicked the power on?  Well,  I guess vacation will do that to you when you're off the routine, sleeping in, and "living in the …

Sweet 16 Weeks

Today my little baby turns 16 weeks old.  He is rolling over now from back to front (very easily) and grabbing things.  He holds onto small toys and has also become a chatter box.  Of course, I think he's cuter than ever!  You can't really tell I'm a proud Mommy can you????

In keeping with the th…

Pete's Early Christmas Present

We are praising the Lord today that Pete has finally been promoted to Sergeant.  For Pete, it's an early Christmas present and probably the best one our entire family will benefit from.  We've been praying for this for about a year now and God has once again proved faithful.  He was awarded his prom…

All Bundled Up

Babies sure are cute when they are bundled up for cold weather!  I put shoes on Shad's feet for the first time this week since it's so chilly.  He's worn slipper-type shoes, but these were his first REAL ones.  I had a nice pair of tennis shoes that Levi and Zeke wore, but unfortunately Shad's feet …

The Weather Outside is Frightful

The freezing rain was really coming down by by the time I got up and the lights were flickering off and on.  Thankfully, the electric never went off and it looks like the temperatures stayed warm enough to avoid the really bad stuff.   It's still raining, but it's not accumulating any more ice.  …

It's Beginning to LOOK a lot Like Christmas!

As most of you know, the ice has hit our part of the country with more expected tonight and tomorrow.  Our neighbors to the south have been hit hard and we are already under a winter weather advisory for tomorrow.  I am praying that our electricity won't go off.  Several years ago, we had a huge ice…

Icy Saturday and Online Shopping

For the next 3-4 days, our area is expecting ice.  Good thing I got out and did our grocery shopping last night and gassed up the van!   Thankfully, we have practically all of the Christmas shopping done, with some minor things to get.  Everything we've purchased has been wrapped and is ready to go.…

Celebrating Christmas with a new baby in the house is wonderful!  It fills the heart with warm memories and brings an extra element of anticipation.  It's fun to hang up baby's stocking, shop for gifts, enjoy holiday events and traditions, and simply watch him as he explores everything for the first…

Celeste's Early Christmas Present

If you are a tweenager living in Kansas City, there was  only one place to be last night... the new Sprint Center at the Hannah Montana "Best of Both Worlds" Concert!   If you've heard anything about the concert at all, you know that as soon as the tickets went on sale, they were gone!  Scalpers had…

Making a Prepackaged Gingerbread House

Celeste, Levi, and Zeke had a lot of fun helping with the gingerbread house this weekend!   After years of making my own gingerbread houses I didn't know if I would like using pre-made gingerbread house pieces, but it worked out just fine.  It was a little smaller than I expected, but just right for…
