Tuesday, January 18, 2011


We rarely get snow but this year we got a good 3 inches early January. I must say it did snow here the day after Christmas but by the time we got home from Church it was gone. This recent snow stuck around for several days thanks to a nice layer of ice on top. So our weekend turned out to be 4 days!!! And since we live in the south our town pretty much shut down...which led to a lot of cooking and family bonding time :)

Yep, that is Jacob being pulled in a skim board behind a 4-wheeler. Fun from what I hear. All the kids tried it but Abby Grace, she was content eating the snow.

Crazy catch-up

Wow, I am soooooo far behind in blogging. When we started this blog so many years ago it was to document our journey to get Abby Grace. When we came home we continued as a way to document for her and for ourselves all of the amazing things that she has overcome and learned to do. Now, well it has become kind of a "When I get a chance to get around to it" kind of place. So now that I have a moment I am going to try to do some catching up with a few pictures from the 2nd half of 2010.
Summer gave way to the cooler days of fall and the leaves turned beautiful shades of reds and pinks. Abby spent many afternoons outside playing in the leaves and even collected a few that she pressed in her books in her room.

Abby Grace worked on her skating skills with her 1st ever trip to the skating rink. Now she wants skates for her next birthday. Owen on the other hand just enjoyed watching everyone skate.

We celebrated her 5th birthday with a dress up party with some of her girlfriends and big brother Owen and she finally got a big girl bike!!!

Christmas arrived and we celebrated with family the birth of our Savior. Of course no Christmas would be complete with a trip to our local light display. I love how in and amongst the myriad if Kai Lan and Wonderpets there is always the nativity. The true symbol of the Christmas season.

Shouldn't have wasted money on Christmas gifts, Abby found hours of fun drumming on the paint cans we've been using to paint around the house.

Jacob tested for his yellow belt in Tae-Kwon-Do and once again Sean held the board for his impressive kick.

Unfortunately, Owen has inherited some poor vision and reluctantly got glasses in November. Hope the glasses improve his vision and that is helps him learn those popcorn words and letters quickly :)

So that's it a quick look at the last half of 2010. Hope your 2011 is blessed!!
