Basically our crazy December

December was a busy month for us...
We traveled to Columbia 3 times and Charlotte, NC 2 times. ALOT of driving! Anyway since Danielle had a doctors appt in Columbia after we went there we decided it was a perfect opportunity to visit one of the parks there in downtown Columbia. It was Finlay Park. So pretty. We played there for a little bit and had lunch(crock pot BBQ Beef-which I cooked the day before..yum!)

Once we got to Charlotte and checked in to our hotel, we decided since I had never eaten at a Cracker Barrel that we should try it. Eeeehhh, I wasn't impressed. But I loved the peg game so much we bought one!

(Christmas with Danielle happened before the park and Cracker barrel,but to be honest I tried to move them and it would work!)
So the week that Danielle left we celebrated Christmas with her. It was kinda bitter sweet. My girl has never spent Christmas morning without me and this was a reminder that she wouldn't be there with us this year. I'm so happy her family in California enjoyed but she was missed at her home!

As in the the post 2 times ago...Elijah has hiding spots all around the house. In December they were: my glad ware cabinet.
and behind the Christmas tree!

More pics to come but I gotta get on to my chore list!
Until next time...
Be Blessed,

FuNnY fAcE!!

When Rylie was about Elijah's age she used to always make this face when she was excited or if you said "Funny Face"!

Now that Elijah is about the same age as Rylie was in the picture above, he now makes the same face! Too cute! :)

New year, kinda new ways...

Happy New Year! :)

I have decided there will be no resolutions this year. Mainly because I NEVER stick to them and only partly because they are almost always loose weight or stop eating out so much or get on a budget and stay on one. LOL So this year will different. This year our family will just strive to be more and more Christ-like. We should already be doing this but since we struggle because we are not perfect we will consciously make an effort to do it everyday.

Lucky for us, being Christ-like means eating better, being better stewards of our money and body and most importantly being kind, considerate, giving and LOVING to our neighbors and ourselves. Sounds more like a life style not a resolution. :)

And since we haven't uploaded any pics in awhile, be on the look out for some in our next post. Charlotte trip, Christmas and just hanging out around the house! Until then here's a teaser...

....this is Elijahs new hiding place...our glad ware cabinet. WE really need to install those baby latches!

Have Blessed and Safe New Year,
