Merry Christmas Letter to all!

Merry Christmas blog-followers! I thought in addition to sorting through our many email lists and trying to email a Christmas letter to all our friends and family, we'd post it on here too (if I can get it to work). Printing and mailing has just gotten to be too much - although we do enjoy receiving "real" Christmas cards and letters in the mail.

We hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas season, celebrating with those you love. We are truly blessed with how much God has given us this year. Our daughter, Heidi, has been a true joy and so much fun! We don't really need anything else.

And the gift of God's son in Jesus is a greater gift than we could ever think to ask for. Praise Him, and Merry Christmas!

Hi Heidi... Hi Heidi

I was gone most of Saturday and Sunday to watch dear friends run the Dallas White Rock Half Marathon. When I returned home Heidi was, needless to say, excited to see me, but she had also found a newfound best friend in her daddy and was quite snuggly with him.

Here's what we caught her doing after I got home on Sunday. She was really entertaining herself... maybe I should go away more often! And thank you to my sweet hubby for letting me spend the weekend away while he played Mr. Mom. I love you!

Gettin' Caught Up...

So, I meant to post some pictures from Thanksgiving, which I may still do, but I thought I stick a few of these up while I have them handy. Basically, whenever Heidi has a really cute outfit on, and especially if it goes with a seasonal theme, it spurs on a photo shoot in our front yard. We do them for the following reasons:

1. She looks cute. (always)
2. She loves being outside.

3. It's fun to watch her play in the dirt.
4. It kills about 20 minutes.

5. It gives us material to put up on the blog.

So there you have it. Enjoy! We are looking forward to this Christmas - maybe Heidi will remember this one, or at least figure out how to tear into some wrapping paper. Last year she didn't do much. :-)
