Christmas was absolutely fabulous.  So much love, so much fun, so much family, so much yummy food, so many Legos.  My heart is full.  We are the most blessed people EVER.  

This Christmas was all about thankfulness.
I’m thankful that God knows what He’s doing and His plans are better than our best ideas.
I’m so thankful for my so-wonderful-I-totally-don’t-deserve-him Jed.  He blesses my socks off
I’m beyond thankful for my 4 blessings asleep in their beds. I’m also thankful they’re finally asleep!  My kids are overflowing with joy.  They are pretty easily amused, so Christmas with them is like one big screamfest (in a good way!).
I’m thankful for loving friends God has gifted to us.  Blessed.
I’m very, very thankful for my wonderful family.  Days full of time with family make my heart sing.
I’m thankful for God’s never ending, unstoppable love.  When I think I know best and stubbornly run in my own direction, He lovingly guides me back to His path.  His goodness humbles me. 

Thanks God!  Thank you for your Son.  Thank you for your Love.

Merry Christmas (a little late– but better late than never) from our family to yours! 

I‘m no photographer, but here‘s my attempt at a Christmas picture of our kiddos.  Maybe someday I’ll be less of a procrastinator and will actually send out a Christmas card…maybe.  🙂
Warning: picture overload ahead.  Proceed with caution.

CHEESE!!!!  Woah.  Simmer down on the flash Mommy!

Still a little bright, but better.  Seth kills me.  CUTE!




“Make a sad face.”

“Make a surprised face!”

“Make a silly face.”

“Make an ‘I love my Mommy’ face.”

“Make a puke face!”

“Make a grrrrr face.”

“Make a fierce face.”

I don’t remember what this one was about…but look at Ezra!  Hahahaha!!

Make an ‘I’m awesome’ face!” (that one was Addy’s idea)  🙂


Now everyone wanted to cuddle Seth. BLURRY!



Seth’s getting bored…

Cutest kids ever.
