Personally, I am enjoying getting back to the routine of things around here! I am such a Type A personality that it’s not even funny! Scott begged me not to be Scrooge the day after Christmas because by 4pm on Saturday I already had ALL the inside Christmas decorations down, packed up and back in the attic. Seriously. He made me promise to leave the outside stuff up for a few more days so our neighbors don’t think we are complete Scrooges. I obliged on that one since he’s the one that’s going to be taking that stuff down and it’s way too cold for this southern girl to spend more than a few minutes outdoors. Yes, Suzie, it’s supposed to be 30ish tonight! BURRRRR!
I hope y’all had a great CHRISTmas! We truly did. It was filled with faith, family, friends and fantastic food! My soul was fed and my spirit nourished through this Advent season. Goodness, I just think about the awesome wonder of Christmas morning in Wyatt’s eyes…it gives me the best possible glimpse of what my daughter experiences every. single. second. And, it’s breathtaking to even imagine. I love that the most.
Wyatt got a Wii…of which he has begged for over a year now. Is it just me or do y’all protest video games, too? This Wii thing is pretty cool though. Santa let me practice on it Thursday night. Smart me chose boxing (and rocked it, by the way) and could hardly move Friday. Apparently, there are these tiny little muscles that surround your spinal cord that get a workout when you box. Who knew?
Our family rule is that whoever (Wyatt) wakes up first on Christmas morning has to sit in their bed and yell “Happy Birthday, Jesus!”. Well, we heard it at 1:30am, 1:50am, 3:30am and finally at 5:30am we caved. We then all pile up on our bed and pray together and share the real Christmas Story before seeing what Santa left behind. Wyatt is really starting to understand it more and more. It thrills me to no end to see him growing spiritually. He’s begun asking more and more questions about Jesus and salvation. Oh, my heart is so FULL knowing he is growing in his quest for knowing our SAVIOR personally and intimately! He has the sweetest little spirit and is so tender hearted. Once he gives his life to Christ, I know he will be used in mighty ways!
So, friends…I just wanted to take a moment to chat. I got a fancy new desktop for Christmas and I’ve yet to figure out pictures on it (not that I’ve had a ton of time to play with that part of it yet but I did figure out the live writer thing that will post to the “blob”…wow!). So, as soon as I get some time to work on that, I look forward to sharing some special pictures with y’all.
Oh…one more thing…Luke had his 4 month well visit this morning and had a great checkup! He is grabbing at toys now and laughs this contagious little giggle that will make you cry it’s so precious!GOD IS SO GOOD!
Can we please stop time for just a little bit??? I am loving this moment of our lives so much.
