We woke up this morning and the ground was covered in snow! I was very excited and christian was too. Noah was not too bothered about the snow. We made belgian waffles and bacon. We put Joshua down for his morning nap and then all headed to the backyard for fun in the snow! When I say fun I mean trying to dodge all of Daddy's snowballs....We are going to do sugar cookies in a while. and then head to the assistant pastors house for a game night at 7pm if the snow is not too bad. What a fun Christmas....with no Santa, no tree and no coveted presents, no Stress=) Thank God for this wonderful Christmas!
Noah did not last long....after Chris hit him in the face a few times with snow balls he had to come in soon. No I am not trying to look cute in the snow as my husband assumed. I don't have a winter jacket and thought I would do the neighborhood a favor and put something modest over my tights.

Christian is no longer in a toddler bed! God allowed us to buy this really nice bed for Christian it has some drawers and a trundle that pulls out so eventually NOah will get a mattress and sleep in here with Christian but for now Christian is enjoying having his own space! He is not scared of the dark or anything I am so proud of him.
The same day we arrived in Missouri from our raod trip we went to pick up chris from the kansas city airport. it was a late flight so the boys fell asleep and did not wake up to greet him =( except Joshua. I was thrilled to have my husband back =) and still am almost a month later. Deployments are not fun at all!!! We stayed a friends house for a few days while we waited on housing. Thanks Liz =) and finally after not having a real place to call home for 4 months we finally got all our stuff from storage and bought some new things as well. I have never really decorated any of our homes because I always knew we would be moving soon enough...but I am going to do my best not to move any more....on my part... anyhow God is in control of how often we move so if we move again Atleast I will be an experienced decorator =)
Enjoying the hotel bath tub
Mcdonalds lunch I think in kentucky.....not too sure
God is so good I would have never thought travelling 17.5 hrs with a 3 year old a 2 year old and 8 month old baby could have been so pleasant =) We stopped twice a day once for gas/food and once for a hotel before 6pm each night. The boys were miracously content on the road for almost the whole trip. I can only come to the conclusion that it was an answer to prayer.
