Time to turn the page on another year.

I'm sitting in my bed as the little ones nap and playing this past year back in my mind. There was so much. So many happy times, hard times, times that made me stronger, times that made me more sensitive, times that made me a better...me.

It started with a trip to Nashville in January, so many things were confirmed then that this is where we will soon call  h o m e. We celebrated our precious boy turning 1. What a joy!

February. We decided that we were going to sell our cottage and move in with my in-laws sometime this year. Thoughts and plans started running wild. We spent much time in prayer asking the Lord to direct our every step.

March was crazy and exhausting for us all as Chris was knee deep in grad school and super busy over time at the firm. Will became really sick and we were back and forth at the doctors for about a month. He also learned to walk this month! We started to work on the house and get some of the things that were on our list done so we would be ready when …

Christmas must be something more..

What if ribbons and bows didn't mean a thing?
Would the song still survive without five golden rings?
Would you still wanna kiss without mistletoe?
What would happen if God never let it snow?
What would happen if Christmas carols told a lie?
Tell me what would you find
You'd see that today holds something special
Something holy, not superficial
So here's to the birthday boy who saved our lives
It's something we all try to ignore
And put a wreath up on your door
So here's something you should know that is for sure
Christmas must be something more
What if angels did not pay attention to
All the things that we wished they would always do?
What if happiness came in a cardboard box?
Then I think there is something we all forgot
What would happen if presents all went away?
Tell me what would you find
You'd see that today holds something special
Something holy, not superficial
So here's to the birthday boy who saved our lives
It's something we all try to ign…

Baby #3...

This pregnancy has been so different yet so much like my other ones which has had me completely clueless to whether the Lord is knitting together a baby girl or a baby boy. Chris has been 99.9% that it's a girl, and he has been right this far and my gut has been boy, I have never been right. I asked God to give me a dream of the baby a couple weeks ago, the next night I had a dream of twin boys. I didn't think about it since I knew there was only one in there and had a dream a few nights later about another baby boy. My tired mind didn't even put two and two together that God had totally given me a dream about what He is creating until the night we found out..

Chris and I went to the doctor on Friday afternoon to find out, waking up felt like Christmas morning. As I laid on the ultrasound table I was totally having flashbacks to finding out about our William, it felt like I was just laying there waiting to find out!! The first thing we saw was the baby's sweet profile …
