Hope everyone had an AMAZING CHRISTMAS! We were home for the holidays but got to see Papa Bear and Gramma Jo via Yahoo Messenger on Christmas Day. We opened gifts and could actually see each other it was so cool! Audrey got some adorable outfits and Josh and I got gorgeous wallets and a shopping spree to boot! Being in person would have been better but it looks like we will get to hug everyone in January in Tennesse as we celebrate Jacob's one year birthday! GOD ID GOOD!

We had "Brandon's" famous ribs for dinner on Christmas Eve and opened presents with the Lopez Clan. Audrey made out like a FAT RAT with dolls galore and even a vtech laptop. Josh surprised me with a real COACH handbag and wallet! I think I heard the angels sing! I know I'm so can say it. Josh got clothes, Playstations games and an automatic Skeleton watch (the kind that shows all the insides).

Traditional Christmas Ham and all the trimmings came on Christmas Day. Food was great! Relaxing was better!!! Saturday we headed to Uncle Charles' house to viosit with family from out of town. We had a BIG day. All the pics will come later. We've been having internet interuptions due to weather. Here's wishing you and yours a fabulous holiday. Thanks for checking in with us! Till next blessed!

Reindeer Ridin, Christmas Treats and Smiles

I put on the movie SPIRIT for Audrey (which is about riding horses) so I could go in the office and work a bit. All of sudden I noticed it was really quiet in the living room. I snuck around the corner and this is what I saw...
: )

SO ADORABLE...she loves her reindeer RUDY!

We hosted the dessert portion of the Youth Progressive Dinner Saturday nite. I made banana pudding, peppermint cupcakes, coffee punch and hot apple cider. We had a blast playing charades and family fued with the kids. I was pretty proud of my decorations so I snapped a fews pics for ya!

Had to share a kiss with my little blessing! PRICELESS


I love you Audrey!

Till next blessed!

Audrey and Deacon were angels in the Christmas program at church last week. They looked so adorable! Katie and I walked them all around the assembly and Audrey just waived like a beauty queen. It was so cute!

She couldn't keep her huggers off Deacon!

All the kids singing The First Noel! They did a great job!

Till next blessed!

We finally got her hair into a ponytail for church Sunday night. She eipped it out before we got home so I don't have pictures of that adorable ponytail. Instead I have the "troll hair" pictures.

Titus loves me anyway!!!

The first ornament Audrey has EVER put on a Christmas Tree!

We had a fun Thanksgiving with the Lopez clan. We missed the Winkler and Tuley side of the family but did get to visit over the phone. Next Year we need to SKYPE!!!
Audrey discovered a love for ice cream that had everyone in stitches. We found some great after Turkey Day sales and ate till our tummy's content! Sorry bout the blurry pics below. Miss Thing was on a MAJOR SUGAR HIGH and wouldn't be still!

Uncle Brandon let us try out his deer hunting earmuffs! You can hear everything crystal clear with those things. Even a whisper but we don't know how to do that yet.

Hope your holiday was filled with joy. Till next blessed!

Josh said he was gonna take us girls on a date last nite. He wouldn't tell us where we were going. His plan worked seamlessly!
So much to see so little time!

Beautiful Smiles!

You can't tell it but these lights were moving. Our awesome photographer timed this pic perfectly to capture them.

Old fashioned Hayride


Audrey was mezmirized the whole night!

Isn't this amazing! You can't see it but there was a "river" of lights on the left side of this scene.

Twas the night before Christmas...

FOCUS AUDREY! She was focused...on the light!

If you can't tell her mouth is saying "OOOOOO"!

Final scene was absolutely GORGEOUS!!
He will bring us goodness and light!

So much fun! Daddy's Surprise was a hit!
This place was awesome! Just as you walk throught the saloon doors snow begins to fall and AJ screamed for joy! There was a man singing Christmas songs on an old time stage around a huge fire pit. We walked into an old western town with holiday decorated shops and old country food stands. Any kind of handcrafted gift you can imagine. The staff were dressed in cowboy gear and everyone was so welcoming. Santa was there sitting by another fire inside listening to all the kids Christmas wishes and there were smiles everwhere. We had such a great time that we're going back next year.

Merry Christmas to ya'll and to ya'll a good night!

I can hardly believe we are 5 1/2 weeks away from Christmas again!!! This year has absolutely flown by! So many fun new milestones for Audrey. Josh and I have experienced so many blessings for this year with careers, spiritual growth and in our marriage. We have really enjoyed being parents and yet make time to spoil each other as well. God Is Able!
Every year we go to Santa's Forest and pick a tree! We won't cut it down till after Thanksgiving but we pick it our early! We picked a WHOPPER this year. It is 9 ft tall and wider than the three of us combined. It will be a beautiful christmas.

Make it a great day! Be blessed and smile! Till next week...

AJ's 1st CIRCUS!!!

We had so much fun at the Circus!
Audrey got to ride an elephant, see acrobats and clowns and ALL kinds of animals perform!
She was mezmerized by the lights and danced the night away under the BIG TOP.
AJ loved the elephants. We couldn't get over how HUGE they were!

Right when these beautiful creatures came out she yelled "HORSEY"!

The clown picked his nose and AJ caught on real quick. She thought that was hillarious! GREAT!

Her eyes stayed this wide the whole night!

The Fam
Hope all is well with you and yours. Till next blessed!

Okay so it's Monday morning and I turned my cell phone on and instantly got a reminder to update the blog. Guess I'll have to keep that thing on in order to be reminded. Anyhow, we had a GREAT TIME trick or treating with AJ Saturday night. She was a pirate and her Daddy was Phantom of the Opera. Couldn't get him to sing though. We worked on saying trick or treat all week but all we could get was "WIGAWE". Everyone thought it was adorable and she came home with tons of candy. Success!

Sha wasn't quite sure what to thin of Daddy's get-up.

Hope all is well with you and yours. Stay tuned for more updates next week!

This was Audrey's first beach experience and she had a blast. We had fun chasing her in the sand and watching her run from the water. It was well worth the sand in places we won't mention. :)

Here's to sand in your eye...

Uh you didn't tell me the water was this cold...I'm outta here!

Hey that's my name! Daddy, did you do that?

That look is priceless!

They say like mother like daughter but we say
Like Gramma Jo like Audrey!

Do you see that fish that just jumped out of the water? Look way out there...oh that's you're Daddy.


We had such a great trip with Papa Bear and Gramma Jo. Thank you for all the memories!
