Christmas with Papa & Granny

Well, like all of you, we've had a wonderful Christmas holiday! We got way to many great things, ate way too much, and enjoyed a lots of laughs and good tears with our family. Here's a few pictures of our Christmas with Papa and Granny (Nate's parents).

Christmas Baking

In celebration of stirring day, the girls and I whipped up some of Aunt Andrea's special Christmas cookies. My little helpers did a wonderful job icing the cookies--and had a great time too!

Is that icing good, Rosalyn?

Wait, is that icing on your cheek, Katie?

Rosalyn in Christmas Fancy

Somehow the girls received (or either we bought!) too many Christmas dresses this year. To be sure each dress got at least a wear or two, we would try them on during the week around the house and sometimes show up "over dressed" to everyday activities. Here's a picture of Rosalyn showing off her fancy Christmas dress. Isn't it cute?

Blogging at FPC, Luci Shaw, and the Incarnation

Nate is a contributor to the FPC Jackson blog, and though I don't think he writes very often, he put up something today on the modern Christian poet Luci Shaw and one of her poems on the incarnation. I thought some of you might enjoy reading it.

Check it out!

BTW: Hope you all are having a wonderful Christmas season! We've enjoyed receiving bunches of your Christmas cards in the mail. Keep them coming. Some of you will hopefully get ours soon, if you haven't already.

Decorating the Christmas Tree

The girls had a great time decorating the tree this year. Rosalyn knew exactly what to do and Katie thought it was just easier to place the ornaments inside the tree instead of on the branch. What a fun time of year it is!

Belhaven College Singing Christmas Tree

It was a perfect night for the Singing Christmas Tree this year. We were all bundled up, drinking hot apple cider, and enjoying beautiful Christmas music with great friends. Cindy Mercer, one of the pastors wives at FPC, is holding Katie in the picture.

Matching dresses!

I know one day the girls will look back on all their pictures and ask me why I dressed them alike so much but I think it's precious right now. We have matching Christmas dresses for each week of December and here was the one from the first week.

Sorry we've been away from our blog for so long. We've been swamped with church work and the holidays. Sadly, something had to go, and it was the blog that took the hit! We're back though, and ready to post. We'll try and clue you in on all that's been going on this past month...

Here's a few pictures of Thanksgiving. What a great time we had!

The Laundry Basket Queens

We were getting the girls ready for bed the other night, and they delayed us by playing in the laundry basket in our room. It's amazing how much fun laundry baskets can be!

Trick or Treat

I am finally posting halloween pics of the girls! Rosalyn was a princess and Katie was a fairy. They loved putting the glitter makeup on their face and sticker earrings on. They had the best time trick or treating this year!

It's a BOY!!!!

We found out a few weeks ago that we are expecting a baby boy! We are so excited! When I first told Rosalyn that she would have a brother she was not happy because "boys touch bugs". I told her we'd have to teach this one to not touch them. She was just fine with that and has been excited about the thought of a baby brother. Katie doesn't seem to understand but points to my belly when we ask her where's the baby? Both the girls are at really fun stages right now and I think they'll do great with the baby. We're now praying that the rest of the pregnancy goes well and that we'll have a healthy boy come March 9th!

Daddy & Katie Time

One of the things I look forward to the most is spending time with my girls. There is nothing like coming home, walking through the door, and hearing "Daddy" being yelled from various corners of our home. The other night Katie and I spent some time reading through a couple of her favorite books while Christy grabbed the camera and snapped a few pictures.

The Whole Family

Just before we left for the night, Granny snapped a quick one of the whole family with the bright lights of the fair in the background.

Mississippi State Fair

We had a great time at the MS State Fair this year! The girls rode tons of rides, had a blast at the petting zoo, ate some delicious food, and enjoyed a thrilling performance at the circus. We look forward to it every year. It's just a shame it only comes once a year!

Pumpkin Picking

As a special event to do with our family for Katie's birthday, we went to the Ag Museum for Family Pumpkin Picking! We enjoyed a hayride, a haystack maze, and picking just the right pumpkin to bring home!

Katie's Birthday

Here's a few fun pictures of Katie's big birthday. It was fun to have Granny, Papa, Nanny, and Pops visit and celebrate with us. Believe it or not, she's two years old! My how time flies...!

Riding Horses

We were out at Twin Lakes earlier this month for the annual FPC Labor Day Picnic. It's always a fun time with friends and a great way to meet new folk. As always, they had a lot of fun things for the kids to do. Here's two pictures of Rosalyn and Katie riding horses.
