Christmas fun.....and not so fun!

Christmas was a mixed bag for us this year. Last year was different with Gracie being born and all and then this year we had a run of the stomach flu in our household. Crappy is right, but for the record we did celebrate with the best of them anyway. Gracie was sick last weekend and then daddy was sick on Christmas eve, Gracie's birthday. Well, either way- Gracie amd mommy celebrated on Christmas eve at the Hosford's house and had a great dinner, great company, some presents and a little birthday cake. Daddy slept off the flu at home but was feeling better by the time we got home.

Chritmas morning everyone was feeling good and we had a blast with our munchkin and she was loving all the fun and presents. Then off to brunch at the Hosford's and TONS of presents. What a fantastic holiday- we were so incredibly blessed. We missed the Carlson's but had a greta celebration with them earlier in the month before the rents went off to Africa. They are doing well and enjoying the family over there this holiday season. We can't wait to have them back.
We are super excited about the New Year coming up. We are thrilled about the next member of the family joining us and all the fun new things Gracie will teach us. Lot's of love and wishes for God's richest blessings on you and your family throughout the New Year.

First Snow

Gracie went out in the snow for the first time Sunday morning. We were waiting for her to cry because it was cold and then when she fell face first into the snow we thought she would scream. No, we had mellow baby on our hands and she was chilling out. She loved the sledding, yelled "WEEEEEEEEEEEEEE" all the way. Then when she had snow on her face she kept trying to lick it off. What a crazy girl we have. Love you sweetie pie!

Happy 1st Birthday to Me!!!

What a blast Gracie had celebrating her upcoming Big Day with all her favorite people. Just a few missing but tis the season. She wants to send a HUGE Thanks to everyone for spoiling her beyond measure. She truly enjoyed her party and celebrated to the fullest. She crashed within minutes of getting home. Her parents would also like to say a HUGE thanks to all of you who poured love and blessings onto our baby. We are truly blessed to have so many who care so much about our precious girl. Loves to all!

Oh Baby!!!!

We are very very very excited to announce that we are expecting our second child in August! I can't believe that we have been so blessed again. God truly is amazing that He will entrust us to grow and care for another one of His precious children. We have had such an incredible time raising and loving Gracelyn and we can't wait for her to be a big sister. What a trip this will be to have 2 kids under 2 but we feel up to the challenge. God bless you all this Christmas season and into the New Year. Please pray that this pregnancy goes well and that we are able to prepare our hearts and lives for the next member of our family.
