Christmas Morning-Stockings

We woke up Christmas morning and drove to grandma's for cinnamon rolls and coffee. Yum. We opened our stockings first.

The kids loved spending time with their cousins. They especially loved sweet little Henry. Ava especially! She is such a little mama.

We then moved into the living room for a little christmas story and the tree presents.

 Maddox was pretty shocked and excited about his ds. He had no idea!

Kade enjoyed playing in his boat while everyone else cleaned up around him! We later moved the party on to Uncle Fred's...

Day 2 - Colorado

Today we hung out and recovered from our trip out. In the evening we went to see the lights at Seven Falls. My memory from this adventure: two things: it took us way too long to get to Seven Falls from my grandma's house, and running down a fairly steep incline, holding Kade, trying to get him to the bathroom in a timely manor (can we say shin splints).

As sad as it gets

Many of you may remember Carson, Maddox's preschool friend, that was diagnosed with leukemia 2 years ago. Carson was sent home on hospice last week and passed away this weekend.

Social workers told the 1st graders this morning. Maddox's teacher reports that it was a hard morning for all of them. The kids made cards for Carson's family.

This is so close to home and heartbreaking. I can barely make it through this email. It is too sad. Please pray for Carson's family. Pray that our community can be a light to them during this dark time. Pray that they will feel comforted. Just pray for them. I can't even imagine.

If you feel led, you can donate money to Midland Bank for Carson Hubbard. I know they are in desperate need of money for all the medical expenses.
