Hello again!! Sorry I’ve been a bit MIA lately. It’s hard to believe that I haven’t really been on here since Thanksgiving. Between Henry’s never ending cold, three ear infections, Henry’s birthday party, Christmas, the flu, computer hard drive crash, internet issues, baby preparations, and a new addition to our family……well…..I’ve been a little busy. So now that I just dumped 732 pictures from my cameras onto the computer it’s time to get caught up. Lets start with some exciting news first.
Our sweet baby Lily has arrived!!!
She was 6 lb 12 oz and 20.5″ long.
I am so thankful that the labor and delivery was easier this time. It has certainly made for a quicker recovery.
So far Lily has been the complete opposite from Henry. She is a content and easy going baby who actually sleeps!
At first Henry was curious and a little hesitant but he quickly warmed up to Lily. He calls her “my baby”, showers her with kisses and loves to help take care of her. It melts my heart when he is so sweet to his little sister.
Just stopping by to wish you a very Merry Christmas! We hope that you enjoy this special time with friends and family. I am looking forward to the candlelight service at church tonight. It should be a wonderful time of focusing on the true joy of the season; the birth of our savior Jesus Christ!
Yes, I know that it is December and it seems a little odd to be talking about leaves. But around here there are still a few leaves clinging to the trees and lots of people have piles of leaves out by the road waiting to be picked up.
A few weeks ago Stephen blew our leaves into a giant pile for Henry to play in. At first Henry wasn’t quite sure if he wanted to go in the pile. However, it didn’t take long to be convinced that it was fun!
Of course sticks can be just as exciting as leaves.
Once Henry was done playing in the leaves he decided it was time to help Daddy clean up the mess.
He does have a cute child sized rake but he liked the challenge of trying to wield the huge rake.
We just completed the second page in Henry’s Thanksgiving keepsake book. In case you were wondering, cars made the list of things he was thankful for this year. :) To make your own keepsake book click HERE. Are you looking … Continue reading →
We have had some interesting fall weather this year. It was hot and sweaty one weekend and snowing the next! What!! It is way to early for snow in South Carolina! But for the most part it has been crisp … Continue reading →
Have you ever heard of wagon or stroller costumes? Before last year I had never heard of them but I have to say that they make a lot of sense. When your little one is too small to walk around … Continue reading →

Fall weather has just started to blow in around here but I did manage to squeeze in one final summer activity last week. I pulled out Henry’s water bin and decided it was time for some new objects to play … Continue reading →
