Merry Christmas

December has definitely been a crazy busy month. We attended 1 Birthday Party and 7 Christmas Parties this month, so you can only imagine how tired we are! We had an amazing time with our families and loved every minute of it. Thank you all for the wonderful gifts and time together. The picture above is our family on Christmas morning. Josiah loved all of his gifts from Daddy and Mommy. Joseph woke him up at about 7 AM and asked him if he was ready for presents. Joseph explained to Josiah that on Christmas morning he gets presents from Daddy and Mommy. He tells him that God has provided us with the ability to get him these gifts. We should always put God first in everything we do and honor him with our tithes. Although there are good and bad times the Lord will never leave us. He is still too young this year to fully understand, but we hope that in the years to come he will understand. Thankfully, Josiah woke up in a great mood and came in and saw his bike sitting under the tree. He immediately ran and took off the bow and sat on it. When he opened his helmet and knee pads he screamed "Georgia." He thought it was a football helmet! Joseph and I were teary-eyed the whole time. Mary Elisabeth was also in a great mood. She played on the floor kicking and giggling the whole time. It was an amazing morning Praise God!

My Kid...The Rockstar

Joseph and I recently had a weekend getaway for our anniversary and left the kids with my mom. After only two nights and three days our little boy seems so much older. He is now repeating everything we say. Here is a picture of Josiah rocking out to Barney. He is now dancing and trying to do all of the motions to the songs. He also has a new favorite phrase, when he likes something he says, "whoa, cool." Joseph and I got so tickled and turned to each other saying "did he really just say cool?"

Mary Elisabeth is as cute as can be. She smiles and giggles at us. Every day that passes we fall more and more in love with her. She is such a sweet baby and sleeps most of the day. She has also started to sleep through the night (YAY for mommy!). I will put her down most nights at 8:30 and she wakes up about 8:30 or 9.
Joseph and I are so blessed to have two wonderful babies. God has blessed us so much in every aspect of our lives. He keeps Joseph safe every night at work and keeps the kids and I safe while he is gone. We are so thankful and give God all of the honor and praise because without him we would be nothing.
Praise God!
