...and a happy New Year to you all!
I can hardly believe its been two months since my last post. Nor can I believe Christmas has come and gone and it is already the first day of 2013! Our life has been very busy and full of joy, fun and a bit of chaos this holiday season. We had a wonderful Christmas celebrating the joy of Christ and the wishes of little children in our household came true. We are very fortunate to be given another year, and though change seems to be on the horizon, my prayers are that we can embrace it with all our hearts and grow a little closer to who we were meant to be and fulfill our purpose on this earth.
So much has happened and changed since my last post. A few hardships and many blessings have come our way. I intended to share them but time has been lacking. Time for blogging anyway. There has been time for many other things, like reading stories in our jammies and baking cookies for Santa. We have had time to enjoy Christmas lights and play in the snow. We have had time for very important things, but less time for sharing them. So lets catch up a little, shall we?
Kieran turned two in November. Oh, and is he ever two. With each two-year-old, more meaning is given to the phrase, "terrible two" and yet I try to remember that he is equally a wonderful two. He loves cars and candy, he loves being outside, swinging and sliding and he has a very developed an ability to find some kind of trouble to get into no matter what time of day and where he is.
In November my Mom treated us to a wonderful production of "Beauty and The Beast" put on by the Christian Youth Theatre in Spotsylvania. I highly recommend any of their plays, and we all thoroughly enjoyed their interpretation of Anastasia's favorite Princess Story. We also had the pleasure of meeting Belle herself (who we were thrilled to find out is also Home schooled!). And do you notice anything different about Anastasia?:
