3 Christmases

If that is even how you spell it. We have had a busy 2 days. We went to the Lawyer's to do Christmas with them on Christmas Eve since Jeremy and Brandi were heading to her parents today out of town.

We had a great time and the boys loved their gifts.

This morning we got up early and headed to the Kenney's and did Christmas there then left about lunch time to come home to do ours here. My parents came out to watch the boys do theirs since they didn't have anyone at home today.

We have had a fun and exhausting day, probably mostly exhausting for me since I have little one inside me. We are so excited to think of next year with a 5 1/2 and 3 year old and a precious 6 mo. old!

God has been so faithful and good to us this year and I know that He will continue to amaze us in 2010.

So now we wait for January 25 when we find out if we will have a Caden Bryant or Harleigh Faith!!!!

Cooper has started playing basketball for church. This is his favorite sport and has been I think since before he could walk. He has waited years to play and finally has the chance.

Last Saturday was his first game and he loved it! He scored 2 points and was just thrilled to be out on the court.

Yesterday when he woke up and was getting dressed for his game he told me he was going to score 20 points and dunk it. I said, we'll see about that.

Before I go into the next part, I was the only one at the game. Colton had a fever, so Jon said he would stay home with him and no one else from our families were there. I didn't have the video camera b/c it wasn't working so....

Cooper scored 28 points!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was incredible! I love watching him play and it just makes me so happy to see him in his element and loving every minute of it! Basketball was a huge part of my life growing up and I am excited to get to watch my son enjoy it as well!

What a great kid! Wish I could post some pics.

Happy 2nd Birthday Colton!

Today you turn 2 years old. I cannot believe how fast time has flown! I remember when you had such bad reflux and we just couldn't wait for it to get better, it did feel like it took forever at the time but it really flew by.

You have grown up so much and we are so proud of you. You love to do everything Cooper does but when he is gone to school you love all the attention. I can't wait to see you as a big brother!

You have brought us so much joy with that adorable smile of yours!! We love you and are honored to be your parents!

My picture thing still won't work, maybe one day I can put pics on here!

Thankful Thursday

I know sometimes I forget all that I have to be thankful for and focus on the negative so today I thought I would write a few things that I am extremely grateful for...

* my God who is so faithful to me
* a house with working heat for my family
* 2 working cars even though one doesn't have heat, they both work!
* a son who is doing awesome in school
* a son who is growing like a weed at home
* a precious baby growing in my belly, come on Jan.25! We want to know who you are!
* an incredible church that we get to serve along an amazing staff

I know there are probably thousands more but that is good for now.
