Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all our friends out there! Sitting here being thankful for our friends and family, but especially for our God who is ever faithful to us. Christmas has a way of bringing both joy and pain to the surface. I am thankful for that. It always feels good to have a long conversation with someone that you know is real and to the heart of how you really feel.

Josh and I had a great heart to heart in the car today. We took a 2 day trip down to Orlando with my parents, Holly and Jay, and all the kids (no we don't smoke crack). It went surprisingly well. It also gives you a lot of time to sit in the car and talk. I love feeling like my husband understands me and knows how I feel. I realize this is probably part of the job expectations but it's appreciated all the same. We had some great conversations about our 3 kids and the fourth on the way.

We are now in Orlando in a great 6 bedroom house I could easily move into. All the kids tired themselves out swimming tonight. They are now all snug as a bug and looking forward to our Christmas together tomorrow morning. Blessings to you all and Merry Christmas!


So who's surprised to hear from us? I've been slacking in the area of updating the blog because I never have any new pics. One of our girlfriends took a family picture a few weeks ago (mommy is looking a little rough but the rest of the fam looks great!) and we just got it on Josh's computer. Not a huge amount of stuff going on here. Noah is on a new med the last 2 days and it seems to be working very well praise God!!! Our doctor is amazing and a huge help to us!!! Zoe is a sweetie as always and full of sass (trying to keep that under control). Last night Josh was putting her to bed and she was crying and screming like a typical three year old and Josh says to her "Why are you so sad?" Zoe's response: I'm not sad, I'm grumpy!!! (with all the passion a three year old can muster!) The baby is growing well and Mommy is getting over the pukies and tiredness. My tummy is growing a bit too fast for my pleasure but our little poppy seed is now almost 3 inches long!!!! God has kept our baby safe thus far and pray he has big plans for this baby. Josh is staying busy with Greenhouse and getting ready for Christmas. We have Decemberfest tomorrow night as an outreach to the community. Please pray that we will reach the people who God places in our path.
