Better late than ever I guess

Since my blog is really a kind of family journal, I can't believe I didn't post anything or pictures about Christmas. And I guess since it is still January, maybe it's not too late. We really had a wonderful Christmas, kind of quiet, rushing from here to there with shopping finished a few days early which is unusual for me. Getting together with my sisters and their families is especially important to me and it is about the only time all of the kids and their kids can get together and get reacquainted. We don't actually all live that far apart except for Josh who lives in Las Vegas and Bubba and his family who live in California but we all just get busy with our lives. So everyone seems to make a real effort at Christmas and I do so appreciate it.

Sweet boys

Oh my goodness. I was just looking at some old pictures of the boys and it makes me wish they were that age again. I love the age they are now, so much fun but I just want to squeeze them as they were in these pictures.
It's hard to believe Noah is 4 and Jonah is 2 1/2 and there is another little boy, Isaiah, on the way (although Noah insists it is a little sister). They bring such joy into our lives.

About a year ago the only "New Year's resolution" I made was choosing a word of the year and I am going to chose another one for this year. Last year I chose the word "worship" and yes I did worship my Jesus more this year than I ever have before. I intend on continuing with this word of worship but I will add a word for this year and that word is BLESSING. I have been thinking about what word I wanted to use this year and couldn't really think of anything that I wanted to use until I saw this word being used on another blog (sorry I don't remember which one) so I am going to copy them. I want to be a blessing to everyone I meet, to be an encourager and if you read my blog I hope you are blessed or encourage by what you read here. I know I need Jesus to teach me to be a blessing and I am so willing to learn. This is my heart's prayer. So.... I pray Jesus's richest blessings on you tonight.

Fun times in our pj's

The boys both love music and have little guitars. There were jumping up on the table, playing their guitars and then jumping down and starting over again. They have so much energy. Whew! But later they dropped. Love my cuties.

Can't wait to get to hold little Isaiah.
P.S. BTW, that's a blue pancake.
