Sweet Little Lamb

I’ve been trying to squeeze as much holiday fun into this Christmas season as I can. Cookie exchanges, Secret Santa, Christmas Light Scavenger Hunts, movies and gingerbread trees and live nativities and lighted parades….the list goes on and on. I’ve had a really lovely December, and my times in prayer and in my Advent study have really kept me grounded in the gift of Jesus.

That’s why I think one of my most favoritest moments…the one that I’ll remember above all others…was when my sweet & sassy niece A-bug performed in her first ever Christmas program at church. She is such a doll, and it was so special for me that I was able to take her to church and share in this experience with her. She had an entire pew of people there to see her sing, and I think we all could agree that she was the cutest little sheep we’ve ever seen.

To hear her sing her heart out about giving the gift of “me” to Jesus for His birthday…that’s what it’s about people. It makes my heart smile. 🙂

A-bug, waiting for her turn to go sing with the other “Little Cherubs”…


Do sheep get any cuter than this?!


Me and A-bug backstage…I got to be “stage mom” for the night and help ‘herd’ the sheep. Not an easy task when they are all 3 to 4 year olds!

Oh Boy!

I’m a little past due for a very important introduction. My husband’s family (myself included!) has been anxiously awaiting the arrival of a certain little man, and we’re all so happy that he’s here…chubby cheeks and all!

Meet the most sweet and darling little nephew I’ve got…Mr. Nolan Micheal!

Of course I had to wear my Texas Rangers shirt to go meet him…with a name like Nolan he’s got all the potential he needs to be great!

Ah, he’s just so darn snuggly! (His sister is pretty stinkin’ adorable too…and so polite, that one!)

Is that not the cutest picture ever?!

I share a pretty special connection with these two, besides just being their aunt. Each of our birthdays is on the 24th…A-bugs of October, mine of January, and now Monkey-Man’s of May. I’d say we were all meant to be family.

Mom and everyone are doing well…I think they are settling into a routine and he is just a little doll. As for me? I’m thinking of a new career path…one where I just sit and rock tiny little babies all day. Now that sounds lovely, doesn’t it?

As for today, I’m helping my own little brother set up his new digs. He’s starting a new job in a couple of weeks and he’s just more and more grown-up everyday. You’ve come a long way baby!
