It has definitely been a stylin' weekend at our house. The twins got their first real haircut, and the dog got her first bath!
We ate Christmas dinner over at my Mom & Dads, as we always do, this year we were joined by the Cookes, The Johns, and the Linders. We had lots of fun, although having lots of kids to take care of makes it a little stressful at times :)
Here is a picture of the litter, we are waiting for recent pics before we choose one, but seen as Becky's kitty name poll was so successful I wanted to get everyone involved in our puppy! Any ideas are appreciated, although, before David even suggests it, we are ruling out Beast!
We thought it best to name her before she gets here, otherwise, left up to the boys you never know what it may end up with!! I like Gracie, Jasen is ok with that too, but would like to name it after a tool, go figure!!! Jaden has said he likes the name Madalee, we are open to other suggestions!! Let us know :)
On another note my Grandmother & cousin have been visiting from England. the kids have had a great time with them, and I must say I have enjouyed the additional help!! Do you think anyone will notice if I don;t send them home?
Just recently we have had a couple of great announcements from our young adult couples! "I'm pregnant" has rung out with much excitement. We are all eagerly awaiting these new little ones, sweet bundles of joy........I have one thing to say. Enjoy your sleep, savor each minute, because 7 or 8 months from now, your life will change forever. You will have no more sleep, it will become a precious commodity. You will hear yourself say to each other, "honey, remember when we used to stay in bed until 10:00am on Saturday morning" or "remember when we used to lay on the couch after dinner and watch a movie?" or the best one "remember when we used to sit together through a whole church service?" Appreciate these times now, you will get them back.....in about 10 years from now!!!!!
I love each of my children will all of my heart, they are a true joy. One of the biggest lessons I have learned over the last 5yrs, is that NOTHING, not even marriage, challenges your ability to be selfless, like a child does :) Can anyone say AMEN? !
