I am praising God, partly for being constant and loving. Partly for all of the people he has placed in my life who show his love to me each day. For all of you, and especially for Luke and Greg. Because of this my heart is not always downcast, because of this I still have laughter and happiness, because of this my life is still full of hope.

Daddy is saying cheese even if Luke isn't.
Daddy told him to show Mommy the soap so that is what he is doing, first the soap on himself...
Then the soap in the bottle!
One of my favorite words that he says right now is shampoo, which comes out, "poo poo?" He won't say it on command though, just when he is actually taking a bath and is ready to wash his hair.
Luke has been terribly sweet. When I am sad he comes and sits on my lap and gives me hugs and kisses or pats my back to make me feel better. He used to tell me to give the baby in my tummy nah nahs and I would say that the baby was too little, but recently I started telling him that the baby went bye-bye. At first that made him upset, I wasn't playing the game right. Then one time I asked him if that made him sad, that the baby went bye-bye, and asked if he wanted to say bye-bye to the baby. He brightened up and waved bye-bye to my tummy and then came over and gave my tummy a kiss. I can't be sad too much with such a wonderful little boy to cheer me up!
The boys really hit it off right from the start! They had so much fun playing together, which really surprised Leah and I because most of the time our boys just play next to other kids, but Amos and Luke really interacted a lot while they played and they LAUGHED AND LAUGHED AND LAUGHED!!! (and so did we!) Glen, while just as big, is 4 months younger, so he mostly played next to the two older boys, but Luke and Amos are only 2 weeks apart in age. These next pics are from the first day they were all together at Amy's house. Leah spent the 27th with another friend, Beth. Then the next evening she spent the night with Amy and on the 29th I went and picked her up and brought them to our house for the rest of her stay.
Luke and Amos are both on later schedules to accommodate their parents work schedules (Amos' dad John works late hours with his pizza food cart), so it worked out well for visiting late and sleeping in all together.
I had to do a few modifications on the patern and to my own knitting but I think they turned out pretty well.
We had a lot of good time hanging out together and playing.
After Christmas Brunch luke had too much sugar in his system and had to get some of it out!
We went out to dinner at a family owned Italian restaurant here in town.
Luke and I shared this beautiful dish, Luke ate almost all the broccoli right away, my favorite part of the dish too, although the whole thing was good. The broccoli was the best broccoli I have ever had I think.
Becca and Joe's visits always go by way to fast, but it was really good while it lasted.

We also had Cassia's name this year and we got her a couple of activity books, one that has lots of princess things to make to wear, and the other has things to make little stuffed toys, kind of like potatoe head dolls I think but soft and more options.
Anna and Isaac both got those little razor scooters from Mimi and Pawpaw.
Luke got a bunch of things including this music set in the picture above (I think the canastas are his favorite). He also got some books and movies, a great big play mat which he loves and some hand-me-down duplos from Kent and Kathy's family which he also loves.
From Greg's parents I got a beautiful set of earings and a necklass pendant. From my name some knitting needles and one of those things you can use to hang your purse up anywhere so it doesn't go on the floor!
After the gifts we took a bumch of family shots, first all the grandkids!
