It begins!

One would think that knowing my family Jeremiah and I would have been on skis before the age of two but that is not correct. Neither of us skied until after two, therefore my child beat us. We took Noah skiing 1 week before his second birthday for the first time. I'm not sure who was more excited, Noah, me, or my Dad. Dad was just giddy and took the day off of work to come up and help us. Noah did terrific and had amazing balance. One of the instructors from Mt. Rose asked how old he was and upon hearing let us know that most of the 4-6 year old kids don't have the balance that Noah did. I'm so proud...he's a natural.

After a few runs he was nodding off on the lift. I had to carry him down the last run because we couldn't wake him up. Good job little man!

God is so good!

It never ceases to amaze me how good God is! Almost three years ago He gave me the greatest blessing in my life, a godly and kind husband whom I am madly in love with. God is so good! Sometimes it feels as if we've been together forever but then I remember the feeling of not having a person to share my life with before we were together. God is so good! Not long after our marriage, what joy filled my heart to find out that God was blessing us with a child. God is so good! Our precious sweet child has added so much to my life I can't even begin to put it into words. He teaches me lessons daily and has helped me to trust in God and praise Him as I have never before.
God is so good!

This Christmas as many in the world reflect on the blessing of Jesus Christ I am joining them. What a blessed life I have been given because God loved me enough to send His precious son to come to this earth, live as a man, and die so that I might live. God is so good!

Christmas Morning

I believe Scott and I were more excited about this Christmas than any others before. It's such a blessing to have a little one around at Christmas that is starting to "get it". Last year he didn't really understand what the whole Christmas thing was about but this year he was much more interested. We spent Christmas morning just the three of us. Here's a few cute pictures from our family time together. What blessings we have!

An Improvement

So, we finally made the time Chrismas Eve to go and visit Santa. We've been trying to talk with Noah about Santa and look at pictures to try and improve on our experience. He was close to having a meltdown but at least we have improvement. Smile next year?
