My intention was to email everyone a Merry Christmas card with updated family pictures.
Christmas Day came a lot quicker than I thought it would! So . . . HAPPY NEW YEAR!! In 2011 we felt like we got run over by a train! The year started out with a lot of financial struggles but ended with Chris' business finally looking up, after a long, hard season of getting established. We are continuing to press into our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ trusting in Him for provision. We have so much to be thankful for! A roof over our heads, health, beautiful children and many other blessings.
Elizabeth turns 5 in 10 days!! She will be celebrating with friends and family by having a "Royal Tea Party". She is looking forward to learning how to read and last year I started teaching her to write her letters in cursive - that's been fun! Ellie loves to play princess/dress-up, she is always "cooking" in her kitchen and LOVES to draw us all pictures.
Josiah is 3 1/2 and continues to keep us on our toes. He mimics his big sister much of the time, constantly playing "catch-up". He still loves to be rocked by his mommy, makes strange noises when he is falling asleep and doesn't stop moving when he is awake. He's really into knights/princes and dragons. He turns into a "big-boy" the second that there is "danger" he must save Ellie from!
You can see more of our pictures and our life throughout this last year (and continue to keep updated) by checking out my web album. I probably upload new pictures every week or so. I also have a youtube account where I try to upload videos of the children at least once a month. Enjoy looking at them as much (or as little) as you desire!
Have a Blessed New Year my dear family and friends!
