Last Christmas…..with JUST Little Man


Why is it that Christmas seems like it is a while away and then once it is here you start saying, “I can’t believe it is Christmas already!?”  Well, that is how I feel this week.  I also had the thought of “Wow, this is probably going to be the easiest Christmas I will have for a while too.”  Starting next year I will have double the gift buying, double the hiding and sneaking, double the projects and double the wrapping.  I hope I can handle it, I hope I can try to be the same Mommy to one as I am to two.

I also started thinking that I will have double the excitement, double the cuteness, double the love and joy of sharing such a wonderful time and the Love of Jesus.

So I’m soaking this Christmas in.  By this time next year everything will be such a blur and I will be trying to find my footing with two.  So I’m going to spend extra time with Big and Little…..uh, right after tonight and my last things of to do’s.

Makes me SMILE week 14


Blastball Season.

Little’s Excitement.

Little’s Braveness.

The Challenge to not just talk the talk but walk the walk.

The feeling of productivity.

Little circling the cul-de-sac on his bike and saying na-na-na-na, you can’t catch me! To the girl who lives across the street that is almost a year older than him and he just got the hang of riding his bike this week.  Don’t get me wrong we told him it was not nice to tease and all of that but it was still a great moment b/c he was doing so well and going so fast for just getting the hang of riding, plus we know we all did that as kids.  I also tried to teach him that it was not Na-Na-Na, but Nanny-Nanny-Boo-Boo.

Receiving God’s word at the exact right time.

Big working his butt off in the back yard this week for me.
