Silly Eliza

Eliza is getting sooooooo big. For awhile there she was a skinny, itty bitty thing and always looking too skinny. Now she's suddenly getting a little bit chubbzy and I love it. She's also in to EVERYTHING and starting to get really good at talking and she loves to sing and dance. She can really drive me crazy, but she also makes me laugh and she is sooooooooo cute!!!

New Years Eve...eve...

Justin and Carrie were in town the week after Christmas, but had to leave on Dec 31st in the morning so that Justin could chaperone a New Year's Eve Dance. So we had a New Years Eve Eve party with the Vegas Pings.

The cousins had so much fun together and (AS ALWAYS) Carrie makes the best spread of food. It was laid back and fun and so good to be together.

Merry Christmas 2010!!!

My goodness I'm behind on blogging. We've been very busy with me returning to work and the kids being involved in all sort sof activities.

Dec. 25th, 2010
What an amazing Christmas we had!!! More than anything we had some sweet miracles and blessings come our way that made our future look a little brighter.
The kids all had great insights this year into the true meaning of Christmas and I'm pleased to say it has been our most meaningful and spiritual.
We woke up around the usual time and I think we all enjoyed teaching Eliza how to rip into her presents. She seemed a little confused since she had been told no on ripping the wrapping paper so many times. Everyone loved their presents and the finale was Christopher opening a Wii for the whole family that he was not expecting to get until we got our tax refunds. Thanks to some saving and some help from both sets of grandparents we were able to make that happen. If any child in the world deserved to have his every heart's desire on Christmas it is Christopher. He is so obedient and helpful. He rarely complains and when he does he tries to do so in private. I don't know what I'd do without him.
We hope to hold these feelings and experiences with us throughout this next year and forever.
