So things got busy. Crazy busy it seems! It's rather sad that the last time I posted was in November, and even then I was doing a catch up post! So allow me to attempt to compress the last 4-5 months into a single blog post, shall we?
We celebrated Christmas, (duh) and boy oh boy was it eventful this year!! Santa visits, gingerbread houses, lots of baking, tons of shopping, lights at the zoo, parties, sick babies, an elf in our home, lots of sewing, and presents galore!! We really had a wonderful time celebrating the birth of our Savior, and I loved that Audrey "got it" this year and spoke of the reason for the season many times. Walker got sick 2 days before Christmas, so that made things a little more...whiney...but it was all ok! Here are a couple of pictures from the 896 I took throughout the month of December.
This little guy showed up on our doorstep when he saw us bringing Christmas decorations down! We named him Cooper, and while there were a couple mornings where Ben and I flew out of bed because we realized we forgot to move him, he really did add lots of excitement to our house this year! We look forward to bringing him out again next year!
Blessed beyond belief!
As a Christmas present to Ben, I surprised him with tickets to see his favorite band. His best friend was going, but Ben assumed we would never go because I'm not one to leave my kiddos overnight. I decided I could do it for 1 night, and we really did have fun!
How cute are these little chefs??
4 years have flown!!!
