Where to start....

It's 9:15 pm and I have a feeling I won't last long enough to finish this blog entry! As I fluttered around the house today I questioned whether I had it in me to blog when it's been so long... but here goes anyway.

The "gay"ble guys (who are also "partners") temporarily hooked us up to the rest of the world yesterday. I honestly could do without tv as long as I live but the internet I've come to rely on fairly frequently. It's nice to have it back.

December was a good month for us... it was a challenging month with trying to get moved in and the holidays are always hectic. But I have so very much to be thankful for that I really can't think of anything other than the bountiful blessings He's provided. We did have a time of grief when our good friends Abby and Jeremiah lost her precious mother to a long battle of cancer. We grieve her earthly loss but remind ourselves that she's whole and complete and best of all with Jesus!

I've added a bunch of pictures to sum up the month and these don't really even sum it up. I would have loved to have been with my family for Christmas but greatly enjoyed the "simplicity" of being home and having our little family in our own home (a first for us)! The girls are growing up so fast and have become "best friends" as Morgan would say. Tonight she asked Justin if we would have to get rid of Paiger when the other baby is born. When Justin explained of course we wouldn't, she replied, "You mean we're going to have 2 babies!?" I love the way their little minds work. Paiger took a pretty mean spill tonight and there's not much worse than running to a child who is looking at you with blood spilling out of their mouth and already dripping all over their jammies. She seems to be ok and I never did get a "good" look in there to see exactly what part of her mouth took the brunt of the fall but I'm hoping it wasn't those little teeth!

Ok, so it's 9:26 now and I'm going to explain these pics and call it a night!! Love to all my long lost blogging friends! I hope you haven't given up on me!!

This was at Chris and Kara's wedding in early Dec. and a very fun Chi O reunion for some Alpha Betas! (Ann Buster Payne, me, Jenny Webb Watkins, Blair Dagostin McCurry & Tami Tolleson Stanford (a KD but we let her in the pic anyway!))

My 2 little princesses!!

A serious Raiger in her daddy's arms on Christmas morning!

A happy Raiger (& a few crumbs in her reflection)


My 2 little ballerinas... you'll see Paiger has a little curl on the back of her head!
