Elinore got to meet a ballerina at Window Wonderland downtown when we saw Santa come to town!


Christmas Day we saw Ruthie take her first steps solo!  We are cruising around on our own yet, but we're taking a few steps here and there to our family!  We're so close!  Best Christmas present this year, seeing my baby grow and learn and develop!

Caleb visited the orthodontist again Monday and had his expander put in his mouth.  He's impressed me so far and he's doing really well with it!  I was nervous for us through it, but so far so good.  I could use some practice at the turning it every night thing, but we've only done it one night so far, so I'm sure we'll get there!
Elinore has been getting into music lately.  It started with 'This Little Light of Mine' that we would sing at bedtime and 'Itsy Bitsy Spider.'  Then I picked up a children's CD of Bible Songs that we listen to the in car that she's digging.  She'll ask us to sing along sometimes, and sometimes she'll tell us to stop singing!  At bedtime now we sign 'Jesus Loves Me' to Ruth.  Elinore joins in and sings along.  She is starting to sing along more with other songs too and it's awesome!  I love watching her discover this new activity!

Dear Lord,

Our world needs more Jesus.

Please help me spread your love in the world Lord.

And help me raise my children to do the same in your name.

May your will be done Lord.

A men.
