Isaiah told me a couple of days ago that me and him were going to go on a "date". Ok I said. He said it would be just me and him, not Mama or Daddy, just us. And that we would get Lunchables. This he said with a lot of excitement. Lunchables. You just never know what gets a three-year old excited. Well, we went on our "date". We ate at McDonald's which is where he wanted to eat dinner. He met some friends there. Then he informed me that we should get a toy when we went to Wal-Mart to get the Lunchables. So off we go to do just that. After we get the toy and candy, Isaiah was not interested in the exciting Lunchables so.....we didn't get them. Then that little sweetie spent the night with us. I love having all my kiddos with me but I also love having them one on one.
We have gotten only one small amount of snowfall so far this year. I am one of the crazy people that like snow. Not Ice under it or with it but just lots and lots of beautful snow....enough that it forces everyone to stay home. We didn't get enough to do that but we did get enough to make snow ice cream. If you have never had snow ice cream, then you are really missing out. The boys had filled up two big pans with snow and were waiting for me to get home from work. When I did, we made a big pan of ice cream. So easy and so good. I think everyone enjoyed it. Now we just need at least one more major snow fall. Two things to notice here. 1. I am not a good picture taker (not even close to a photographer) and 2. Isaiah did not partake of the ice cream therefore no picture.
This should be the last of the Christmas photos. And it is a hodgepodge of pictures from Isaiah loving to clean out the wood stove to life-long sweet friends, to baking with Nana, kissing under the mistletoe, honoring the great grandparents, Christmas at the Browns, family pictures at church, new bedding from Aunt Jess, funny hats and new pjs. Overall, we had a very good Christmas season and I am so thankful for my family and friends at Christmas and any time of year. I am one blessed wife, mom and Nana.
Well I really thought this would be my last post of Christmas pictures but like I said before, we were very busy this year with lots of fun things going on so naturally I took pictures. And since this is where I post them instead of printing them out, it makes for some long posts. In this round of Christmas pictures we have our Norman Christmas party with swimming for the kiddos big and small and we got to meet the newest members of our family at this gathering. (not pictured. sorry)
Dirty Santa prizes are the best.
Another fun game: girls vs boys
Such a good picture of that roll of paper towel, the background people are just photobombing.
More Christmas cookie making with good friends
Christmas sacks at the church. The ladies got to hand them out this year and I loved it.
Our annual youth Christmas party dinner
Such good sponsors
And two of my favorite boys helping me bake my Christmas apple cakes
I am a child of the King, wife to the best husband in the world, mom of four wonderful children and one great daughter-in-law, Nana to the three cutest little boys and one beautiful little girl. We have a wonderful life. Who ever would have thought that I could have all of this.
