Well, it's been a long time since I sat down to blog on here. It's not that we don't have anything going on to tell about. It's actually quite the opposite. This year has been a year of ups and downs, sadness and excitement, lots of fun times and lots of accomplishments from the kids. I am going to catch up from January but for now I will just start with what's happening these past 2 weeks.
Katie attended Mustard Seed Preschool and absolutely loved it. She made some really good friends and learned some great things. 2 weeks ago she graduated preschool and also had a spring program.

Today, Rosalyn attended her schools awards day. What a special day it ended up being for her! She was awarded: First Grade Character Award "Sweet Spirit", All A Honor Roll, "Voracious Reading" (to those who love to read and are seen reading in their free time), Diligence Perservance and Effort, and a wonderful honor, Citizenship 2011 (She was the only one in the school who received this award). I wish I was prepared for her winning the Citizenship Award because the teacher who presented her with it said the most kind words about Rosalyn. I would have loved to have it on video. Here are a few pictures of her day.

This teacher will be Rosalyn's 2nd grade teacher and is the one who presented her with the citizenship award. They already have a sweet relationship so we're looking forward to next year!

My family was with us on Christmas Day and Nate's family came the Monday following Christmas. We had a great 2nd Christmas with them!

Pillow Pets were the girls favorite presents...I'm so glad they got these so I don't have to listen to the request each time we go shopping!

I love Knox's intense look here as he opens his present.

Knox favorite present was definitely his sword. He loves it!

Christmas Day

We had a wonderful White Tennessee Christmas this year. It was a very relaxing day. Here's some pictures to show the kids happiness on Christmas morning.

The girls loved their guitars my parents gave them. Knox looked at their guitars and ran upstairs and brought his down. They played all afternoon and sang several songs for us.

Christmas Programs

Rosalyn was narrator in her Christmas Program. She also did great and had a confident voice as she spoke.

Katie was an angel in her preschool Christmas program. It was her first time to sing in a choir or in front of people but she did great. She was so happy to be up there.

Catch - Up : Thanksgiving Feasts

Both girls had Thanksgiving Feasts at their schools. I thought they made precious little pilgrims!
We also had a great month of giving thanks to the Lord for all He has done for us. The bottom picture is our Thanksgiving tree!
