Merry Christmas!

For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that you might live!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas celebrating the birth of our King! I am so thankful that Jesus was born to save you and me - that we might live a life abundant, full of hope and peace!

**How fun to have a white Christmas!?**

Christmas Day!

Christmas was so fun with Lee this year! Santa Claus came and brought him a bucket of tools and a train set. He had so much fun playing all day long. Deedee and Happy came and brought him a tent which was a big hit. And, Erin and DJ gave him Frisky the cat (Lee loves a cat in my mom's backyard that we named Frisky and if you can get him to "meow" it is the cutest thing ever). After such a busy day Lee was a little wound up. When he was supposed to be taking a nap, we went into his room and found him dancing like a naked jay bird in his crib. Down below is the g-rated version of our wild man!

Who is that behind our door I see?

Why, its Santa Claus coming to visit Lee!

Christmas with Pop & Bebe

The night before Christmas Eve we went to dinner with Mom and Dad and then came back to our house for presents. Lee was very into presents - giving and getting! I am so thankful that Lee has both sets of grandparents close by that love him so much. Thank you for the fun things Bebe and Pop!

Priscilla the Pink Pig Train

This was our 2nd annual trip to ride the Pink Pig with DeeDee and Happy. We lucked out again and didn't have to wait in a very long line. But, long enough to have a little dance party with lights for Lee. Lee & Thomson loved this - such a fun Christmas tradition!

Three Weeks From Today

Whoa! Just three weeks from today sweet little baby boy will be here. I can't believe it! It seems like I have been pregnant but now the time is flying. I can't wait to meet him and hold him, snuggle up and see what he looks like and what kind of person he is. Cannot wait! Things I have been praying for are:

That he would have a heart for the Lord and that he would know Him one day.
That he would be healthy.
That he would be super sweet.
That I will have more and more love to give.
That Lee would have an easy time adjusting to a new baby.
That they would be the best of friends right from the start.
That I will have a lot of energy come out of no where.
That any sort of weird postpartum would stay far away from me.
That my mind would be clear so I can take care of two boys, Whit and myself.
That Whit and I would soak up the sweetness of a new baby together.

Thank you Lord for the gift of this baby. Come on January 6th!

My Sweet Boy

Christmas time!

Lee loves Christmas time! Can't you tell?! Whit asked me the other day if Christmas was my favorite holiday. I said that Easter is my favorite. He asked why and I said because I am so thankful that Jesus died and rose again for us. He said that sounded like a "Roswell Street Baptist Church answer" - but I was serious. I love Christmas so much (I mean a whole, whole lot!) and everything that comes along with it, but Easter truly is my favorite holiday. BUT, so far Christmas seems to be Lee's most favorite by far! Some things about Lee & Christmas time...
~ He loves Christmas lights. Driving in the car at night all you hear is Ho, Ho, Hoooooo until you get to the next house with lights.
~ I got Lee a little tree for his room at Target before Thanksgiving. I took that thing back right away because after a 45 minute (normally 3-4 hour) nap Lee would wake up saying Ho, Ho, Ho over and over. It was cute but not that cute.
~ Definitely likes to say Ho, Ho, Ho!
~ Loves the tree. I love how his face lights up when he sees it again.
~ Runs up to the tree and throws his hands up and yells, "Don't touch!" and then runs to me dying laughing over and over.
~ Sweetest sound ever when he says, "Meeerrryyy Christmaaaasss!" but you can't get him to say it very often.
~ Likes to sing Jingle Bells and say, "Hey!"

I know there will be a lot more to add but these are just a few things so far. We are going to see Santa on Sunday night and I can't wait to see how that goes. Love this time of year!
