Please forgive me…if I ramble…

You know what I’m doing? It’s after one in the morning…I am listening to the sound of my husband snoring sleeping peacefully…the sound of Ruby Kate’s swing in the kitchen next to me…

I just tucked my sweet little boy into bed beside his daddy after he woke up crying…he immediately fell back to sleep…

I am thinking just how blessed I am…

I have thought for days about all the wonderful things I would like to post on my blog…so I will remember…truth be told, I just want to remember this…right now…

So much has been happening…life is going by so quickly…before I can journal about it…before I can take a picture…before I can tell a friend…it just happens…

So I will always remember…

Ruby Kate our precious baby girl, you turned 4 months old in December and as I type this you are not far from 5 months, little one…

How precious you are to us!  Your brother and sister adore you and you think they hung the moon.  You are such a little sweetheart…always smiling…always laughing…always sticking your tongue out…not figured that one out yet…

Mommy has always wanted to cloth diaper but I have never been brave enough until now…well not exactly true…I did try ONCE with Ethan and he had a “come-apart” so I scratched that brilliant idea and went back to disposables…

This time around things are faring much better…you love them (well, truth be told you don’t really care) and mommy REALLY loves them…only wish I had started 5 years ago…we’ve even got daddy on board…woohoo!

We took a fun-filled ride on the Polar Express…

Attempted, (scrapbooker that I am) to take a picture with the Conductor…without too much success…seems I am missing a child…

Here he was…found him with daddy…

The older two acted like crazy people…I think it was the obvious lack of car seats…Ellie got “train sick”…she is her mother’s child (I, of course, took my motion sickness medicine)…

Ruby Kate thought it was all fabulous…

During the month of December, “Julie” and ” Thomas” joined our happy family…

And Ruby Kate tried to figure out if this whole “Christmas” thing was all it’s cracked up to be…

Ethan has recently taken a likin’ to sneeking out of his room after bedtime and attempting to be as close to Bryan and I as possible while remaining undetected…

I attempted to have Bryan take a decent photo of me for use on my Twitter/Facebook page and I learned a few things…I like myself better in black and white…and about 40 pounds ago…new year’s resolutions for $500 Alex…

While I’ve been busy living I’ve been busy learning and reflecting…God is showing me that while I am teaching others, He is teaching me…to love those around me because they won’t always be around me…that new year’s resolutions are for the birds…how ’bout a list of what God’s goals are for me in the new year…that I am so blessed to have a pastor that leads his sheep…that challenges me to examine my walk and strive to be someone that God is proud to display…that  I really do have the best husband in the world…do we sometimes drive each other nuts, yes…are things always yippy-skippy, no…do we grow to love each other more everyday in spite of those things…a resounding…yes…
Happy new year…happy new day…happy new hour…happy new moment…enjoy the moments…
Until next time,
