much thanks

There are so many blessings that God has given us and I are forever thankful... first and foremost, my salvation, then the priceless gift of my husband and children, our family, friends, church... the list goes on and on. Noah was playing with stickers and I told him how he needs to thank God for the gift of his stickers because so many children don't have them. It's this time of the year that I look at my life and am amazed that God has blessed us so greatly and realize that in a split second all of it can be taken away. All of our blessings are just that - blessings - none of them earned. Anything above my salvation in Christ is just an added bonus.

This Thanksgiving we celebrated with family in Texas... it was so nice to be back home surrounded by our loved ones. The boys played outside in the yard and as you can see, Noah gathered sticks and Jude ate leaves... boys! They both had a bit of a cold before the holiday but Thanksgiving day it hit Noah hard... poor little guy was sick throwing up. But that didn't stop him from running around!
Noah fell in love with this Christmas ornament - he thought it was the coolest! This is going to be such a fun Christmas season. Everytime he sees Christmas lights he says CHRISTMAS and gets super excited! I have a feeling we are going to be driving around neighborhoods and stopping at every decorated house. Tomorrow we are decorating our own house and tree! YAY!
