More Christmas Spirit

Well, last night I had Tom pull down all the Christmas stuff so I could decorate today. We also took the kids Christmas picture for our cards. Here is the photo. Evan looks great, its just pretty hard to get a baby to look at the camera and smile. I will post more pics when we get the house decorated.

Christmas Spirit

Evan, Ella and I are going to decorate cookies today at my mom' s with my sister and her daughter. I have just not really gotten into the Christmas spirit yet this year. I am excited but having a hard time getting motivated to get the tree up, do Christmas cards, shop. Hopefully today will get me in the spirit.

I totally do not know what to get the kids for Christmas?!?! I am thinking for Evan- a toothbrush and toothpaste and floss (he loves floss). Then I think Tom is going to order him some kind of thing for outside for him to play with- like a john deere ride on thing, He is also getting a kitchen because he loves to cook---- Ella- what do you get a two month old??/ Diapers, wipes, toothbrush, toothpaste (for later) hmmm.. That might be it for her. She needs no clothes and I am sure she will get plenty of toys from the grandparents. Oh yeah, I am going to get her a baby of some kind- maybe a Barbie?

How one decision can change many lives!

What a heartbreaking weekedn. My ex-BIL who I still love and care about was involved in a very serious car accident. He was ? drunk-driving (numbers are not back yet for blood alcohol level), he was with his girlfriend. Long story short she ended up dying and this just makes me so sick because she has 3 children and now these kids are going to be without their mother. I feel so awful for everyone involved. I think I have prayed more this past weekend for her family and his family than I have ever prayed in my life.

I have honestly never known BIL to drink and drive so I just don't understand this... Only time will tell.

Please pray for his family and hers. They are all going through alot right now.

I am new to this whole blogging thing but thought I would give it a try. I figure this will be a great way to keep family and friends updated on what is going on with the family since I am not very good at sending personal emails or snail mailing cards and letters. I will try and keep this updated with photos and more about us.
