A Month in Pictures

Here is what we've been up to for the month of December.
Baking cookies
 Cuddling with Daddy on chilly nights
 Chatting it up with Santa (don't mind the not so friendly elf)
 Building and decorating gingerbread houses (thank you Ikea for a $4 set)
 Visiting the big, big city (so bummed the beans eyes were closed in this shot)
 Baking more cookies! for parties, teachers, friends, mailmen and garbage men
 Dining with our closest moose friends
 Erecting a chicken coop worthy of it's name (Monticello) 
Kudos to the hubby on this masterpiece
 The girls (all six of them) seem to love it
 Mama was sewing up a storm (first projects since home ec) 
a construction blanket, pillow and toolbelt
 celebrating the birth of our savior
 opening presents
 loving our presents (score one for mama on this tag sale crane)
 Getting very excited for our first snowstorm
 Fixing up the house with our new tool belt
 Whoa! Snow!
 How do I get out there to play in it?!
 Providing Daddy with moral support
 Visiting the Museum of Natural History ( Dinosaurs and Butterflies!)

What a month!  We went through another rough patch with sleep issues in the first half of the month but right now for the past 5 days we have been sleeping through and doing wonderfully, no screaming/crying/etc.  Last night Charlie was blowing me kisses when I walked out of his room and then shouted to the wall "I love you Mommy", he melts my heart- I shouted it back to him.  I wish we could stop the ticking of the clock and just soak up the beauty of this time.  I know I will keep that and many other beautiful moments from this month locked away in my heart.

Looks like we'll be jumping back into the fertility treatments in the next week or so.  Any prayers you could offer up would be most appreciated and this is a costly process both emotionally and financially.

Wishing everyone a happy new year that is abundantly filled with God's blessings!

Talk about how much little ones are growing, my how Charlie has grown! What a lovely post and beautiful sentiments of 'I love you' that you shared. I agree, sometimes I wish we could bottle these precious moments as time flys too fast. Merry Christmas and may your next year bless you beyond your dreams.
