-Kicking our Way to Christmas-

A lot of prep has been completed. I have had my presents wrapped for weeks, so it was time to finish the last minute things (and wait for a package from Hong Kong...) As we waiting and anticipated the days counting down, a few things had to happen. Little baby Edmonds is a kicking MACHINE. Daddy finally got to feel her and she was being ornery and kicking him back after he pushed her a bit. It was so exciting! Check out these kicks (by the word 'don't' on my shirt)
Perhaps she is just cheering about the fact that mommy passed her GLUCOSE TEST!

We had to chase each other around the house and growl. She can be a rather convincing monster! :)
 We learned to tie our shoes! (I didn't do much... haha but he just kept trying and did it!)
We opened a new CAMERA! I am so excited. We relaxed all night and played with all the different settings. I am so blessed. I can't wait to take pictures of little baby Edmonds. 

 We relaxed in our black leggings. :)
We created a basket of goodies for the nurses and staff at Villa Angela to encourage them throughout the holiday season as well as nourish and thank them for the help and love they give to our dear friend, Jennifer.


 We (finally) send out our Christmas Cards. <post of all pictures coming soon!>
 We decorated Christmas cookies the night before the big performance! They were delicious.


We celebrated the birth of Christ. We performed "The Friendly Beasts" for our church and it was amazing. All of the kids did a fantastic job. It was worth all of the time, energy, and effort. I am so glad we pulled off another successful year!


More Christmas love to come. Next up: Family Christmas Celebrations... Candlelight Service... and NYC trip!
