Life with four kids is CRAZY! That is all I am going to say about that! It has been a busy 6+ months. The last two months of my pregnancy I was put on bed rest and in and out of the hospital because of blood pressure issues. However, Isaac was born on September 2, 2010 9lbs 3oz, big boy!! He is now 4 1/2 months old and is still a big guy! I am still amazed at God's intricate design of my youngest son. I love looking at him! I love looking at his nub and just being reminded just how awesome God is! We have yet to see any doctors, however next month will put an end to that.
So, life is full of it's comings and goings. Hannah is doing well in her 1st/2nd grade split class and has made some great friends. She has also lost 5 teeth, 3 of them have been in the last month! Ben is in pre-school and continues to plug away at school work still as crazy as ever with his contagious giggle! Phoebe is awesome! She will be two in February and just.....amazes us. She has an awesome personality! She is just crazy! I don't know how else to describe her.
Christmas was......ok at best. It would have been great except for the fact that our church has been going through a split. It made Christmas awful this year! Christmas has always been the time for great fellowship for our church with families coming together, kids home from college, and seeing old friends, instead it was filled with accusations, slandering, gossip, and hurt feelings. What a disappointment! In the height of everything going on I read a sweet quote from my cousin's wife when she wrote about her Christmas experience also filled with disappointments
"And yet. The story of Christmas goes on regardless of our circumstances. I’m sure Mary had all kinds of expectations, plans and dreams for her first born. Those all went out the window with an angelic visit." It was so encouraging and so what I needed to read!
So there was a quick little update for all of you keeping track. And now, what you are really here for....pictures!
