This Christmas we were unbelievably blessed with the joy of being parents to two healthy, happy, beautiful children. Rylan and Reese bring great pride to Tyson and I, and this year it became even more apparent to us the sacrifice that God made when he sent his son to earth for our sins. We are so lucky to have such great families to celebrate Jesus birth with. We were grateful to our families this year for not making, or asking us to travel with a 6 week old baby. We got to stay home and celebrate Christmas with both sides of our families here in Muleshoe, making life much easier. We had many different activities leading up to and on Christmas, and they were of course captured by this picture taking obsessed Momma. We hope that Christ filled your home this Christmas and that many blessings come your way this New Year.
Our two little blessings. Getting Rylan to be still for a picture is a task in itself, now getting two is even harder. But the unplanned ones are usually my favorites.
What a beautiful Christmas gift from God. This is our sweet little Reesey Cup all wrapped up ready to go on the Polar Express. Nana and Papaw took all of the grandkids, Aaron, Samantha, Tyson, Kyra and I to the Polar Express this year. It was fantastic and something that we will have to do again!
Rylan and the conductor of the train. Ry loved how he said "All Aboard", just like the movie and the book. Which we watched and read before and many times after.
Rylan decorating his cookies for Santa. He also enjoyed tasting them as well.
Introducing our elf Jimmy (which Rylan named all by himself). Right before he left the very last day he turned our milk green with his magic. This was a fun tradition that Rylan really enjoyed, and that we all are looking forward to doing next year as well.
Our sweet baby girl on Christmas Eve. She smiles all the time and this picture captured her and all her cuteness (yes I am partial, she is my little girl).
Here is our little man on Christmas Eve. He is all boy and full of fun and laughter, never a dull moment.
We had a white Christmas. On Christmas morning we woke up to a snow covered ground, it doesn't get more perfect than that. This picture is of the boys all bundled up to go play in the snow.
Our baby girl on Christmas morning. Sadly this Momma couldn't get a picture of her children together in their Christmas outfits. You have to be faster than your two year old football obsessed son. Before I could get a picture of the kids together Rylan had already put on his Texas Tech football jersey. Maybe they can wear their outfits for church and I will try again.
We are blessed, thank you God for your sacrifice and your sons sacrifice.
Hopefully with this New Year I can begin blogging more. Since our sweet Reesey Cup got here I haven't been doing that well. I will try and do better. The adjustment from one to two has been just that, an adjustment. As I am sure most of you Momma's with two or more know it takes time. Words of wisdom ladies, that is what we need. Until our next post, there will be one but I am just not for sure when.
