Monday Mugs (Winter)

Last Year we enjoyed this snow over Christmas at my parent's house in Pennsylvania.
(Ok well 3/4 of the family enjoyed it. Isaac screamed the entire time!)
We are hoping and praying for some more fun in the snow. My dad has purchased a few new sleds since someone AHEM Ben....cracked 1 or 2 sleds last year!
Here's wishing some snow your way!

6 months worth of videos!

A sweet moment

My little man in one of his sweet moments all snuggled up with his lovey.
Thought all the family that is not on Facebook might enjoy seeing him!

Wordless Wednesday (Santa on a huey never gets old)

This past Sunday we went to Ben's annual squadron Christmas party. We have seen Santa fly in on a huey (Ben's aircraft) every year (except 1 year when he had to fly in on a cobra) for the past 6. It never gets old seeing santa hanging out the back & all the kids squealing and jumping up and down. This year was no different!

Santa about to land

A random shot of the kiddos in daddy's camo suitcase
No he was not going anywhere but brought supplies in it to cook the Marines in his shop some pancakes.

Kendall pre-Christmas party sporting her dress made my yours truly

Isaac looking for santa

Balloon princess crown

Still not trusting Santa

Kendall just going up to get her present....not wanting to sit on santa!

10,000 beads?! WOW I love it santa!

Loving his new 4-wheeled vehicles!

I find random shots on our old little point and shoot like these.....

Friday Picture Flashback (matching Christmas pj's)

Ok,ok so I like to dress my children in matching pj's one season a year. Call me corny but I think it is something fun to do. I thought that I would share the pj's of Christmas past for you guys to see today!
Kendall is upset because she wants to start opening presents not take pictures!

Right before Night,night!

Stockings were hung.....

Christmas is my favorite holiday. I love the ruckus, family, friends, gift-giving, decorating, AND most of all the reason for the season. It is fun to see my children grow in the love of the Lord.
This year I am just struggling. It has been 3 weeks since my miscarriage and I am just still not myself. I know that it takes time but I feel like I am cheating my family.....
We (Kendall and I) hung the stockings the other day. We put a stocking up for a baby that will never see any goodies in it or under the tree. It is so hard to see joy when I still feel sorrow.
It has been a good growing experience for Kendall and for that I am grateful. Just yesterday she asked me about Heaven and in specific if we would be able to see the "baby from your tummy" when we get there.
So for now, I am praying for peace & a little bit of my Christmas joy back this year......

2010 Family Pic



Family Pic 2009 we go!

1. The best thing about a birthday celebration is the cake and ice-cream.

2. Birthdays celebrate the passage of time.

3. I went shopping recently and the most interesting thing I bought was a Wii for Ben and the kiddos.

4. I love child's games that let me learn about my children.

5. The reason is top secret.

6. I like snow and cold. (when I am sitting beside a nice warm fire)

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to relaxing with my family possibly playing the Wii, tomorrow my plans include finishing several sewing orders, church, & life group and Sunday, I want to have a great time at Ashley's birthday party!

1. What's on the top of your holiday wish list and why?!

An embroidery machine. I love my friend Janet who has been doing my personalizations but I would like to be able to do them myself :)
2. What is your favorite Christmas gift from the past?
Getting engaged Christmas Eve 2003

Just what I am.
4. When do you put up your tree?

5. What is your favorite Holiday?

Friday, December 3, 2010

fill in the blank friday.

1. Holiday spirit makes me thankful for the true meaning of the season.
2. The holidays are incomplete without Jesus, love, family, friends, ham, pie, & hugs!
3. My favorite things to do around the holidays is making our Christmas cards. (I love looking back at the pictures from the year.)

4. A holiday tradition my family and I have is opening 1 gift a night before we leave for the Christmas holiday. It spreads the cheer over about 2 weeks instead of one sitting.
5. Holiday music is uplifting (if it is the right kind.....)
6. This year, I'll be spending the holidays at my parents house.
7. Holiday wish list is unspoken this year.....

Suited my current mood today......

You find your faith has been lost and shaken

You take back what's been taken

Get on your knees and dig down deep

You can do what you think is impossible

Keep on believing, don't give in

It'll come and make you whole again

It always will, it always does

Love is unstoppable
