Christmas was wonderful! Our greatest blessing is that we have two HEALTHY, HAPPY children. We are so grateful that everything went well with Joshua's second surgery, it was very minor but it is a relief to have it over with. What a miracle modern medicine is! Here's a few snap shots of us this Christmas season:
after church at Grandma and Grandpa C's.
Jacob sleeping with his new Buzz and Woody (he loves these guys!)
Joshua - having fun opening anything wrapped in paper
Jacob with his Mr. Potatoe Head from grandma C
Two cute boys in their Christmas snowman jammies on Christmas Eve (Aunt Cami is in the background she is due in less that two months yeah!)
Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and were able to spend time with those you love!
I was reading a friend's blog today who lost her baby just a few months before our baby Joshua was born. She has been through a lot, and she is an amazingly strong person. It made me realize how very grateful I am for our little family. They each bring me so much joy. Yes, life has it's difficult moments and sometimes things are hard. But, there are so many more good times than hard times. There is so much to be grateful for. I love my children and I am SO grateful that they are healthy, and happy and so much fun to be with. I love it when Joshua opens his mouth really wide and gives me a big open mouth kiss on my cheek. I love it when out of the blue Jacob comes and gives me big bear hugs for no reason in particular and says "I love you mommy!" Then I say I love you too! and he always responds with I love you too! LIFE IS WONDERFUL!
Here are some fun pictures from the month of November: First one that I don't have a picture of was celebrating our 4 year anniversary at the Roof restaurant. - Thanks mom for the gift certificate and thanks to mom and dad for babysitting : )
Jacob and Joshua playing a "duet"
taught Jacob how to make Snow angels
We got a new kitchen table for our anniversary (yeah for having a husband who works for Deseret Manufacturing - the Church's furniture making department)
spent many fun hours playing with Jacob and Joshua I love my boys!
made a girafe with Jacob and Joshua out of blocks. We made lots of other animals too but this was Jacob's favorite
Went to Ivan's citizenship ceremony. If any of you think you know a lot about American history, I can almost assure you that Ivan knows more than most Americans after studying for the citizenship test. It is really difficult. I only know about 1/2 the answers on the study guide.
