Santa at the Library

We went to the library today to see Santa. Aaron was more excited to see Ms. Joy, his Sunday school teacher. She works at the library and he was soooo happy to see her!  When it was our turn to talk to Santa, only Molly would sit on his lap. The other two would only go close to him with Ms Joy. But by the end if the evening, Aaron was warming up to Santa and even gave him a hug. We all had a fun time!

Awana Christmas Party

Tonight the kids had their Awana Christmas party. They got to decorate cookies and play games. We have been so thankful for the Awana program and all of the kids' awesome teachers.

First lost tooth!

Rayna lost her first tooth yesterday!  Her tooth had been loose for quite awhile.  When it finally fell out, she and Molly were SO excited!  The tooth fairy left her a dollar and a book.  I can't believe my baby is really old enough to be losing teeth!  But she looks so cute.

We Were a Church Plant

The Sunday after our we got back from our honeymoon, Brian and I visited Church of the Redeemer. Now, ten years later, this is our family. I wanted to share the video that was shown at our church's birthday celebration. It's absolutely beautiful. Praising God for Church of the Redeemer!!

Yesterday, we took the kids to the mall to see Santa. No one was interesting in sitting in his lap. Aaron wouldn't go anywhere near him. But the girls both talked to him. Then Aunt Marie took the kids to play. The mall looks so pretty at Christmas!  I love this time of year!
