New Friends!

Beth got the boys gift cards to Build-A-Bear for Christmas so I took them Friday.
 
We have never been before, and they loved it! 


 
Afterwards we got free Yum-Yos!
 
Jacob declared it the 'best day ever!' :)

Little Love. Big Heart.

Today Levi had his yearly Echo & EKG on his little heart.
 
We truly are blessed to be Levi Scott's parents.
He is the most laid-back child I have ever met!
 
He has such a precious soul.
And I'm told numerously how sweet he is.
It truly makes my momma heart swell! 
 
We waited in the waiting room for almost an hour.
He never complained one bit.
In fact, he made himself at home. ;)
I even offered him to play a game on my phone, and he declined.
 
This sweet pumpkin never gives us any problems.
Never throws fits, never did as a two year old either.
I remember saying when he was a baby, "this baby never cries."
He's always content.
He is the textbook child. 
I wish every parent, especially first-time parents, could experience a child like him.

We received the best news at his appointment!
His little heart is doing perfect.
At 3mos we had to take him to Arkansas Children's Hospital for a balloon procedure to open his aortic valve.  He receives Echos and EKGs annually to monitor his valve.
 
And year after year, we are told, "it looks great!"
 
We thank God for watching over Levi.
It's my prayer we never have to step foot into that hospital again.
I know the Lord has big plans for Levi!!

Texas Bowl - Go Hogs!

Beth received 4 tickets to the Texas Bowl.
She graciously asked Kris and I to attend. 
Thankfully, Kris' mom was in town and she was able to watch the boys.

Always love the big 'A' 
 
 Go Hogs!
Can you tell I love the band? :)
 
The panoramic didn't turn out, boo :(


 
This is the only pic I took of the game, which actually isn't the game per se. 
These players prayed before the game.
 
We had a great time in Houston (our first time there, too).
Thank you Bayeth for inviting us!

Christmas Day!

While the boys patiently waited for Kris to get home, I made them breakfast.

I was going for a snowman look, but when Levi said, "I love the gingerbread, Mommy!", Gingerbread it was! :)


Snaggletooth (and i don't like it one bit!)
 
Look at these cute labels Santa used ;)

And my most precious gifts of all!
Two special necklaces from Jacob (bought at his school's holiday shop).
 
Kris finally got home and it was down to business! :)





 
Around lunch time, we headed over to Meme's and the kiddos opened gifts from my mom.






 
They are/we are spoiled!! 
So much to be thankful for!!

Christmas Eve Service

We attended the Christmas Eve service at church.
Kris had to work, boo!

They sang an acappella version of 'Mary, Did You Know?' while we lit candles.
It was so beautiful!!

 
 Afterwards we came home, and we left cookies and milk for Santa.
 
And Jacob left this nice note.
"Dear Santa, do not touch these toys.  They are just watching to see if you got us the right presents.
From Jacob and Levi."  LOL!!!! :)
 
 Since Kris works nights, he typically gets home at 7:45am.
I told my early risers that even if they get up before Daddy got home (which I knew they would), they would have to wait until Kris got home.
 
Too mean?  :) 
 
They were up at
4:49am!!!
So yes, that's how long they had to wait!!

Christmas Eve Eve

We all got together at Beth's house on Christmas Eve Eve.
Looking back, we didn't really need to since we were all together on Christmas, ha!
 
We (adults) always draw names, and this year so did the kids.
Kate bought for Jacob and Luke for Levi (and vice versa).

Levi is living in his Superman costume!!!



We also played Win, Lose or Draw.
And when it was Levi's turn, we laughed so hard!
It was so funny!


We played 100 rounds of Dominoes.
Serious stuff, folks.

We are pretty certain Levi will be the class clown. :)

Tuckered out from all that clowin' around ;)

And our annual Christmas Hat pic :)
