Blessed. That pretty much sums up this Christmas! Jared and I are so overjoyed with the blessing of our precious little family. Spicer Beth and Axl Joe and baby #3 are blessings straight from Heaven. They filled this Christmas full of love, laughter and joy. Spicer can tell you the story of baby Jesus without leaving out a single part and Axl Joe, well he just is so funny! Both kiddos keep us laughing! Now that Spicer is getting older and understanding more we are working hard to keep the gifts she receives from mommy and daddy low key. We want to keep the focus on Jesus being the greatest gift of all. She and Axl each had 3 gifts from mommy and daddy just like Jesus received 3 gifts from the wise men. Spicer was all about unwrapping her gifts but Axl could care less! lol! Spicer opened his for him. He was however pretty pumped about his little RZR rtv! (it was too big to wrap). Spicer said the best part about Christmas is baby Jesus! PTL! She is getting it! This year it actually snowed Christmas afternoon! SNOWED!! Unbelievable! A white Christmas! Wow! Of course the kiddos loved that and mommy and daddy did too! Thank you Jesus for the joys of Christmas!

My precious first born is growing up way to fast! She turned the big "4" years old a few weeks ago and Jared and I just can't hardly believe it! This girl has brought so much joy and blessing into our lives. She has also taught us how to love in a way we never knew we could! Spicer Beth LOVES life! I learn from her joy and zeal each day. I'm convicted by her life. The way she cares, loves God and gives. She's just unbelievable! Jared and I always joke and say she's like an adult in a 4 year old body! ha! This year she wanted to have her birthday party at the Monkey House. What fun! Several of her sweet little friends were able to attend and oh how she loves her friends! We also had so many family members who were able to come celebrate with us as well. It was a great time! On her actual birthday she wanted to eat lunch at Cheddars, rent movies and eat popcorn in our jammies. A girl after her momma's heart! Love love her! Spicer told me this morning that the best part about Christmas and the funnest part about Christmas is Jesus! Praise the Lord that he is so real to her at this very young age! Thank you Jesus for our precious 4 year old Spicer Beth!
