December Days

The Last few days of December have been full of friends, family, and lots of fun! Here's a few pics of what we have been up to...

My besties came! It was AMAZING!
We are going to try to start a tradition for a once a year reunion!
I cannot tell you how good it was to catch up with my best friends...
I am so thankful for how honest, encouraging, loyal, and godly these girls are...
So so thankful that even in the distance, our hearts have remained close~

Christmas Eve Service at SGC...
dressed all adorable in his Christmas pj's
and a new hand-made hat from Mrs. Mimi!

All tucked in bed Christmas eve...
See you in the morning sleepy boy!

Ray has continued the tradition that my family had of
reading the Christmas story before we open presents.
It was cute to read it to Barrett... he even helped his daddy hold the Bible!

After our Christmas we headed over to Barrett's GiGi
for Christmas with them! Barrett was taking it all in!!

Uncle Caleb was sweet to help Barrett open his gifts!
Caleb got Barrett a new little football!

Us on Christmas!

Barrett playing with one of the two gifts he got from mommy & daddy!
He loves things that make noise!!

And then we got a HUGE snow the day after Christmas!!
It was beautiful!

And a quick, but wonderful visit from my family!
Aunt Betsy just couldn't get enough of her nephew!! :)

We have also done alot of...

Cuddling with mommy!

Eating his first pancake! LOVED it!

Waiting for daddy to come home from work...
It is adorable to see the big grin that Barrett gets as his dad walks up he

Staying in our Pj's all day! :)

And driving his new car around the living room!!

December 2010 proved to be an amazing month! We packed it full of memories and fun thats for sure! I must say that this was probably my favorite Christmas yet! It was so special to be a family this year!! Even though Barrett didn't understand much, my heart was so so happy to have him here with us! The love in our hearts for our son seems to grow with each day...
In all the trials and hard times, we are blessed and our lives are truly full because of all that we have in Christ! He is our life... and I pray that we know that even more through 2011!

Taking a deep breath....
And jumping head first into 2011~
As good as it has been... I know that it can only get better...
With hearts full of faith and excitement for what the Lord has in store for us this year...

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
