Catching up. . .

I can't believe it has been so long since my last post! This time of year is too crazy. I'm finding myself looking forward to the new year and slowing down a little! But at the same time I want to savor every moment of this Christmas w/ my 11 month old and 2 year old! Hayley is understanding a little more about Christmas this year but not 100% into it, of course. She loves decorating and re-decorating the bottom half of the Christmas tree. Most of the time half of the ornaments are missing. I'll find them random places like under couch cushions. : ) We've finally made the successful transition to the big girl bed. Grant it, we do lock her in her room for now, but it works and we all get sleep. We've had lots of family time this month w/ my side of the family. One of my cousins got married 2 weekends ago and last weekend was our family Christmas lunch w/ my dad's side of the family in Dallas. It was interesting as usual.
Jack is going to be 11 months on the 23rd. I can't even believe he is almost ONE! He is an absolute JOY in our lives. He is the happiest kid I've ever known. He LOVES his sister and vice versa. He is happy w/ his style of crawling (army crawl) and has no desire to do things like everyone else does them. He loves naps, wheels, and playing outside!

I'm assuming I won't have a chance to blog again before Christmas, so Merry Christmas everyone!

I am so glad to see an update. We sure do miss seeing you guys, but we are so thankful for the way that you are following God's leading for your precious family. I pray that you continue to be blessed in this new chapter...and I am even more thankful now to have blogs to keep up with you and your sweet kids in between those times when we will hopefully see you guys. You and Tra are always such an example of faith and trusting in the Lord with all of your hearts. That is such a a blessing to our little family who is a few years behind yours. Have a wonderful holiday...and post some pictures soon!

I have been wondering about you! So glad to see you are back in the blogging world. I know we have talked before about this but again I am SO HAPPY to hear how wonderful things are going at your new church home. We all do miss you so much but I know my little family will support you guys. You and Tra love the Lord SO MUCH and I know that you two have prayed about this and have put a lot of thought into this change. If this is what God is asking of you then who am I to selfishly ask you to stay...I won't.
Mrs.Trietcher have a wonderful holiday and know that your family is dearly loved by the Wilson's and always will be! :)

Tine--
I have tried twice today to upload pictures and blogger is being moody. I'll try again soon. :)

How is Garrett?? I thought about calling you today more than once and something happened between the thought and getting to a phone every time. :) Love you--

Shelma,

I was glad to see your update. I love reading about my friends even if I've already heard their news! We are thrilled to watch you guys on your journey with the Lord and pray that we can always be here to encourage you in any way that you need it. One thing I love about the Body of Christ is that you are in the same Body at your church or ours and we share the same Lord and the same love that He gives us for each other. I praise Him for His amazing ability to lead us all in different directions designed specifically for our families individually. Isn't it amazing that He pays so much attention to us?! Faith can be a wild ride but I sure don't want to get off of it! We love you! Merry Christmas!
