The reason I've been missing for a while

Please praise God with us for this wonderful little miracle! I'm ten weeks now and still feeling the effects of morning sickness, hence the fact that I haven't posted in a while. Everyone says I'll feel better in a few weeks, so I'll see ya then! :)

Bella's first answered prayer

This morning as we were walking out to the car to take Bella to school, she noticed that it had begun to snow. Now, a little background information is helpful here so I'll let y'all know that we've been praying for snow off and on for a good two months now (mostly so Bella can wear her snowpants!). Anyway, as she was looking at the snow falling, I could literally see her wheels turning. Realization dawned on her and she said "Mommy, God made it snow."

"Yes He did! Isn't that great?"

And then my little girl looked up at the sky and shouted at the top of her lungs "THANK YOU GOD!"

*These are the treasures that I store up in my heart.

Christmas Review :)

Playing Mary with her baby Jesus

This is LONG overdue, I know! We had a wonderful Christmas! We enjoyed having Greg's parents and sister with her family stay with us for several days over the holiday. I don't have anywhere near enough pictures and am relying on copies of Granny's pictures to fill in the blanks. Both Bella and Irene were spoiled this year! Bella got the baby doll she had asked Santa for and also a new kitchen. She loves both and they are giving her lots of experience with pretend play. She also received a dress up trunk full of princess clothes which she adores! So much fun! Irene's favorite gift was her dolphin! That's right... she got her very own dolphin this year! My parents adpoted one for her while they were in Hawaii. She was so touched and excited she teared up! Anyway, here are some miscellaneous pics for you to enjoy!

Cute matching jammies!

Greg's sister Amy with her husband and two boys. They are expecting a little girl in March!

'Working' on her new computer, sitting just like Daddy does with his laptop.
This is one happy girl!

My nephew got a chocolate fountain for Christmas (by request!)

Bella LOVED it
Maybe a little too much
