Deck the Halls!

 We have our Christmas tree decorated!  The girls had SO much fun decorating the tree this year.  They worked on it forever and wanted to make sure we put on every single ornament.  It is already fun to look back at the ornaments we've gathered since becoming a family 8 years ago.
 Aaron was in bed for the tree-trimming, so I showed him the tree when he got up and took the opporutnity to take some pictures of him in front of the tree.  Is he cute or what?!

Husband of the Year

 So I got up with the baby at 5AM. I went back to bed when he went down for a nap at around 7:00. I woke up to a quiet house at 11:00--ELEVEN!! Turns out my sweet, wonderful husband got all three kids ready for church and took them by himself. Seriously? What did I do to deserve this guy?

Meanwhile, I ate my cereal and drank my coffee (when you get up at 11AM, should you have regular or decaf?) while I watched Steven Furtick. Lovely Sunday morning!

Then this afternoon, we went to the park with our friends, the Wilsons.  It was a wonderful Thanksgiving vacation.  Three weeks until Christmas vacation!!

Happy Anniversary!

Brian and I celebrated our 8th anniversary this year.  We celebrated by going out to dinner while the Newmans babysat the kids.  It was great to have some time to actually sit and talk.  Happy Anniversary, Honey!

My Little Violinist

 Molly has been taking Violin lessons and is doing really well.  Is she the cutest little violinist you've ever seen, or what?!

Happy 3rd Birthday to Rayna!

Three years ago today, we welcomed our sweet Rayna into the world.  I cannot believe our baby girl is already three.  She had a great third birthday.  She was SO excited.  This afternoon, C and A came over with Mr. Newman to have cake.  She helped Nana bake her cake and informed us that she made it "all my byself with Nana."  ;-)  
 Happy birthday, Precious Rayna!  We love you so much!
