Kickin' Back and Relaxin'....... NOT!!!
Some may be wondering if we are all OK over here in the middle of nowhere. Truth is we are all just fine, we have just been crazy busy with everything from Thanksgiving and Christmas shopping, to funerals and let's not forget, my "elf" gigs!!! We are all so excited about this time of year, it is such a great time to sit back and reflect upon all the wonderful things we are so blessed to have. Jacob and I are both so blessed to have come from such amazing families, I would not trade anything about the path my life has taken this far. I just want to give a big shout-out to both of our families, and say that we love you all for everything you do for us!!!
Well as the weather has turned colder on us, the boys have become a little stir-crazy. Not to worry though, it didn't take them long to think of something destructive to do. This, of course was Creeks idea. He thought it would be fun to see if he could ride the motorcycle down the lower flight of stairs! It entertained them for a while, gave them a few bumps and bruises after some pretty good crashes, but soon enough it turned into not enough of a challenge.
Sorry, I didn't change the direction of the pic, but you get the idea..
Cannon then came up with what we call "indoor sledding" but the lower flight of stairs was not long enough, nor would it get them going fast enough!!! In the picture they are kinda blurry, because they were going so fast.. It is so funny to watch them go, it never gets old. Although I must say, I am glad it finally snowed because my steps are getting hammered!
Last but not least, Chewy turned 5 on the 22nd, he is honestly the sweetest boy I have ever seen. He is so tender-heart ed, and he really truly cares for other people. I just am so grateful that we get to have him in our family. Cannon and Chewy think it is so great that they get to be the same age for a week. Anyway Chewy wanted a Batman cake, and I must say that I really did not think I could top the McQueen Cake, but I think this one turned out pretty awesome. At least that is what the boys kept telling me, they think I'm the "best cake maker in the whole world." All in all, life is GREAT, we are truly a blessed family, and I pray we will always remember that... Love you all, and hope your Holidays are wonderful!!!
