‘Tis The Season

I am finally done with my second semester of college. I still see those beautiful dreams of mine waiting at the end of this tunnel.

I guess I will start off by saying Merry Christmas to all of you! I must apologize for not writing/ posting in such a long time! I have been keeping nice and busy! Taking 5 college classes, trying to be an active parent AND prepping for baby number 3 has kept me away from my beloved blog! But I am back, and just in time for Christmas!

I have yet to take on any holiday crafting and or baking, but I have a week to knock your socks off… with the help of Mom (of course)!
One of my brothers flew in for the Christmas holiday! I couldn’t be more excited! He has been missed around here! Bert and I had the pleasure of letting him live with us for a while before he joined the Army and I can honestly say he was my saving grace when my husband had to work or I needed my son to be entertained for a few hours so I could knock out a few things! My Dad was also able to fly in! For how long, we don’t know. He is trying to retire and the process is taking longer than planned.
Other new from this end of the world…. Emma is now a full time walker. She has attempted to run a few times in the past couple of days… it didn’t end in her favor. She is still trying though! Emma was also baptized yesterday!
Bradley is going to school 2 days out of the week and he has slowly gone from toddler to little man. It has snowed a few times here in MT and Bradley LOVES it. He is also my self proclaimed best helper! I can not deny these claims!
And, baby number 3 seems to be doing well! We find out the sex next week. I am having a hard time picking a name out for a boy… but oh well, we will play it by ear at this point! We have until the end of April beginning of May to figure it out (yes, I am that mom that can’t remember her due date).
Well, now that you are caught up on most things, I can get you ready for a few upcoming posts! Sugar cookies are on the to-do list, as well as gingerbread cookies, and yule logs! Mom and I are also making stocking again this year. We made some last year, but they are in storage so we are making some to keep at my house (and yes we know we only have about a week to do them!). I am sure there will be more blogging to do and with me taking on-line classes (except for my math class) I should have more time for my beloved blog!

So until next time, I will leave you with a few photos from the past few months.
