Sorry for the lack of pictures and delay in Christmas pictures. Deacon has been sick and both kids are keeping me on my toes (feels more like flat on my rear) as usual. Pictures coming soon! Happy New Year's Eve!

We have had a busy but great Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I have a lot of pictures to post, but I am going to wait until tomorrow.
Most of you know how I love Christmas music. I would listen to it all year long, but then I wouldn't have any friends. Anyways, the songs I really love the most are the traditional religious Christmas songs. They have so much more meaning than we give them credit for, because we are so used to hearing them! Take the time today to concentrate on the words and what they mean. And here's a sample of one of my favorite songs.
Hail the heav'n-born Prince of Peace
Hail the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings
Ris'n with healing in His wings
Mild He lays His glory by
Born that man no more may die
Born to raise the sons of earth
Born to give them second birth
Hark! The herald angels sing"Glory to the newborn King!"

Guess what we did this week? We filmed a short Christmas greeting that will air on KCBD sometime in the coming days.
These are Dean's grandmothers. We made candy with them this week. How cool is it for my kids that they even get to know their great-grandmothers? And, their great-grandmothers are best friends!
Here's my tree. It fell down last week and I had to re-fluff it and redo the ribbon and everything. I love Christmas trees. I remember sitting under ours when I was a kid and staring up at the lights while listening to Mariah Carey Christmas CD on my discman. If I had time to do that now, I'd probably take a shower instead.

Brace yourselves! I think I heard Deacon's first word. I'm not 100% sure, but I think he is trying to say "Lola." But it sounds like "La-La-La-La." Very cute. Of course I could be just expecting him to talk because Lola said words at 6 months, BUT I really think he is saying Lola. Or La-La. And now he is eating paper, so I must go.

Sweet little Deacon turned 8 months on the 1st. He is still a happy, content baby. He crawls everywhere-all over the house, and pulls up onto everything he can. He loves to stand up. He is starting to sleep longer stretches at night, too. He recently found his voice and loves to squeal and sing.

Dean fried our turkey, it was really pretty! And yum!
Turkey cake balls crafted by my sister, Lola, and me.
Lola's placemat she made at school. It says "I am thankful for flowers."
One of my favorite cousins- Tim (Countrybabe) and his wife Karen.
Lola took this picture.
We were so full. I thought Hillary was going to throw up at one point. It was that full feeling that takes hours to go away, you have to sleep it off.
