a new tradition we are beginning this year is to pray for the families represented by the christmas cards we receive in the mail. we pray for them before dinner and the boys take turns praying that God would bless that family with a wonderful advent season. so if you send us a christmas card, know that you have been prayed for!
i had a little slice of heaven in my home last night. we were able to babysit our new cousin while his parents went out for a birthday date. the boys were completely obsessed with him and kept petting his head as if he were a puppy. it was sweet to see their love for him though! here they are at their pajama party. baby s was not happy that we took the bottle from his mouth for the picture!
and seeing john with a baby again just melts my heart. and doesn't help my baby fever much right now!
isn't he the sweetest thing! somehow my sister and i had such cute babies! we loved our time with him and can't wait to watch him again. noodle even woke up this morning wondering where he was and could we go wake him up!
