Happy Birthday Jesus!

Some friends had us over today for a birthday party to celebrate Jesus' birth! Sage was very perplexed about it ever since I told her and kept asking "Is Jesus going to be there?"...it was a bit tough to explain to her three year old brain. Nonetheless, we had a fun hanging out with friends, decorating cupcakes, and making a craft! Thanks Jill for having us!!















August had fun too...lots of entertainment!

Family Christmas

We had a fun night tonight exchanging gifts as a family and acting out the Christmas story(this is our last night at home without plans before christmas!). Sage was Mary, Blake was Joseph, August was baby Jesus, and Montana was the angel. The angel boldly proclaimed "Glory to God in the highest" right on cue! Wonderful memories!!






















Outside!


The weather has warmed up A bit so we got outside yesterday afternoon to enjoy it! The girls had fun riding their wheels down the hill!!!

Holli's sweet tooth!


We love holli's sweet tooth...a local candy shop on the square! It's a great motivator for going to bed without crying and talking;)!! Montana's class went to buy candy for the gingerbread house they are making. I was able to go to school and help this week and it was fun because it's pretty big! I will post a picture once it's done...they are going to put it on display at holli's!

Christmas Performance

Montana performed with the children's choir from church this past Sunday at the Ford Center on Ole Miss' campus for a community-wide Christmas concert! She said she didn't want to sing on stage but we told her it would be easy and fun. She did great and they were just precious! Montana is the second from the left:

Christmastime!

I promise I will pull the camera out and take more pics these next few weeks as we soak up each moment of celebrating our Savior's birth! As I was pulling boxes out of the attic, the girls were squealing with excitement! Once the tree was up, August wouldn't stop laughing at the tree...it was too funny! So...the tree is up, stockings hung, and I even put a wreath on my car(will post a pic)! I just LOVE the Christmas season!!!





















Thanksgiving 2011

Little late but.....we hosted thanksgiving in Oxford this year because Blake was on call. The Booths were all so kind to accommodate us and bring the celebration here! It was an overwhelming day of giving thanks!!! We went around the table and shared our hearts and gratefulness to God in various ways that He has blessed us! I couldn't put it into great words on that day but I am incredibly thankful for the present!! The love of Christ, the relationship He has provided for me with him, my faithful and encouraging husband, my children who teach me so much and are the loves of my life, The favor of the Lord in health and healing since Brads diagnosis almost a year ago, the faith of our families, encouraging friendships, and on and on and on! I don't know if I have ever been more at peace than now. Thank you, God, for accepting me and adopting me!





My attempt at turkey pops...thanks to pinterest


And a fruit turkey...thanks also to pinterest



The girls were excited about the turkeys=success:)


Happy Thanksgiving from August!
