So, it's been a busy month with Christmas preparations which has put blogging on the back burner for awhile. Now I have a little over a week to get my house spotless for our trip to New Orleans, Louisiana. My mom and Dad are serving a mission at the Employment Resource center in Slidell near the Bishop's Storehouse that helped tremendously with Hurricane Katrina. They teach workshops on Self reliance, employment, and Interview prep so that people in the community can find work. We are looking forward to seeing them so much! We're also excited to go to the aligator farm among other things. I'm done shopping for Christmas! Yeah! I still have to do some wrapping. But as some of you may know, it has to be somewhat of a camo job with little inquiring minds lurking about. So I get it done little by little. This was our first year where we could really invest some time and energy into Christmas for the boys. It's been a total blast! I love it when I've gotten something already then they'll say how great it would be to have it! Adam's got several of those so it should be fun. We were in the car a few days ago talking about Christmas and what we should get for each other. I asked Adam what he would want for Christmas and he was quiet and didn't answer. I asked him why he didn't say anything. He said, "I don't really care what you get mom, Christmas isn't about getting presents anyway. It's about Jesus being born." So sweet! I sure love that little guy. But then about a day later, we were sitting at the table eating lunch and we were discussing the various characters in Whinnie the Pooh. I said, "If you were to pick one character, who would I be most like from Whinnie the Pooh." Without hesitation, he shrugged and said, "Well, probably Rabbit because he likes to tell people what to do alot and sometimes he yells." I guess I'll have to try to be a bit more like Kanga from now on!

YES! I'm so glad you decided to post something. I've been wondering how you are doing! The boys look so sweet in their matchees... Lincoln looking so grown up and Adam, well, looks like Adam! I'm glad you get to go visit family... are you driving? Well, I'm always curious about what you are up to and am sad not to have a number to call you ever, so call me sometime and give it to me!!! (Oh, and don't worry, I'm a rabbit too!)

I'm glad you finally let everyone know you're still alive. We still have to talk on the phone. I like the Winnie the Pooh story. I think we all could be a little bit more like Kanga. She is so sweet. When are you leaving town for Christmas? I hope you take lots of pictures. I am about to pop... the doc said today that the baby seems small (that's what they said about Noah though...) so we are hoping this goes easier. Gimme a call when you have free minutes. Love you! Katie

I agree, Lincoln looks so much older. Cute boys. We are glad you are doing well.
