Chistmas catch up

So before we get started "catching up" I want to let you all know that we are home and EJ is doing so much better. His fever is down and his nose is clearing. I am so relieved that we conquered yet another bug. I just pray we don't get another round of this for a long while. I need a break....
I have unfortunately finally caught the bug though, and it is miserable. I am so sad this is what my little ones have had for two weeks!!!
I love the holiday season but I hate the colds and illnesses that come along with it.

Okay, so without further ado....Christmas!

And I enjoyed some of the best food. Seriously.

We had a great Christmas. For starters it was the first white Christmas I have ever had. Ever! Christmas Eve we spent at my Aunties house and I got to see all my relatives. I love family. The single most important thing to me is Jesus, but family is a close second. I am so thankful and so wonderfully overwhelmed by the amazing family the Lord has given to me.
Christmas Day we stayed home and ate all of the food I made. I spent an entire day cooking and I loved eating it!! Well, I love eating anyways!
The kiddos opened presents and played with their new toys. We wiped sniffles and gave medicine. We even played in the snow some.
Austin played with his bb gun. Yes you read that right. A bb gun. "Santa" brought this but I was kept out of the loop for a good reason. Sigh.... Sometimes I think Christmas is just as much for the parents ;)
Speaking of the parents, I had made Adam some great presents and a picture collage of the boys. Austin bought me the most beautiful decorative wall cross. He picked it out all by himself and I love it! I told Ausitn he started my collection! I am so excited to now collect something meaningful.

Since then we have been hanging low trying to recover from the bug that has recked some serious havoc around here. Hoping now that everyone will be on the mend.

Oh and one more thing.

I am now sewing. Watch out fingers world! I will let you now how that goes!

Oh and my sweet nephew Bryce is doing fantastic. They got to hold him yesterday for the first time. I can't wait to meet him. Thank you so very much for your prayers. You all have no idea how much it means to me. How much you mean to me!
And since you all mean so much to me...
Watch out because I have a giveaway coming soon :)
