We had a really sweet Christmas this year. As the boys get older, it just gets more and more fun to give, get, eat, play, relax, love, eat again, etc.
Here are two of my favorite pictures from this year.
This is my mama and Simon reading about baby Jesus. I love the intense look on his face.
This is our little family of five by the tree at church. We take pictures here almost every year, and I can't believe how different those little boys look from year to year!!
Hope you're having a fun "week between". This is one of my favorite weeks of the year. Don't forget to stay in your jammies for awhile and play board games and eat some junk food.

Outside My Window... a little snow and a cat on the porch who doesn't belong to us and WON'T GO AWAY!!
I am listening to... Smallville in the living room (the 5th or 6th episode since yesterday at this time!) and quiet quiet quiet on the baby monitor (yippee!!)
I am wearing... jeans and a fuzzy (our name for fleece sweatshirts)
I am thankful...for Christmas break, a warm house, grace, coffee, my four guys, and friends, in no particular order
I am pondering... the healthcare bill, but I don't want to talk about it because you'll probably be surprised by what I think and I HATE arguing about it so PLEASE don't comment about it...just know it's what I'm pondering. :)
I am reading...I started Les Miserables in October, but have not found a moment to read it since then. Perhaps I should get off of this computer and go read it.
From the kitchen... plans for toffee and chocolate chip cookies, haven't given a thought to supper...hmmm...do we have any entertainment money left???
I am creating...pillows and pictures.
I am thinking... that I should NOT have brought up the healthcare bill. :)
I am going... to have a really fun week with family.
Around the house... Christmas is in the air, Lou has become an inside dog, toys are out but the house is clean...life is good.
One of my favorite things... sitting on the couch with Tim after the boys go to bed

I found this treasure of a photo today while I was loading up our digital picture frame with old Christmas pictures. It reminded me that a sweet baby is the center of all of this flurry we are in. I love the flurry. I love the sweet baby who came. I love the man who died for me.

I think this picture captures so much. Isaac is the first grandchild, the quiet one, the protective one, the one who loves to draw and play checkers at Grammies house. Ezra is the middle grandson, the one who can get almost anything he wants from Grammie if he just cuddles up and gives that sweet smile. Simon is the baby, the one who can bring joy when no one or nothing else can, who squeals with delight when he sees "Mammie". I love this woman, and I love these boys.
