Christmas found us once again!

Well, we had an awesome Christmas and a great new year! The highlights over the last month were Austin's 1st birthday party in which he decorated his face with his cake! The picture says it all. He was a little timid at first, but his sisters helped by plunging his innocent face into the cake. Yes, our daughters have wonderful manners. We are proud parents. :-/ Anyhoo, also shown is Austin playing with his new birthday toy, yes, a tonka truck. Yes, father is proud. Son has a new man toy. Cowabunga! One of the things we enjoyed about this Christmas was . .we did more homemade gifts for each other. It does my heart good to see the girls be so giving with each other and the family. . . also, we did something which was a first for our family and put together a package to send to the troops overseas. This was really cool. . .doing these kinds of things is what makes Christmas the most meaningful to me. The Christmas spirit is definitely not all about all of the cool stuff we can rake in. . . I am thankful to be reminded once again of that babe born in Bethlehem. I am grateful for him. Happy new year!
