Our first Christmas in our new home! Our first real Christmas tree ever in our marriage! We were pretty excited to get a real Christmas tree this year. I love the way they smell. Don't worry we have added to the decor by adding a protective barrior around our tree so our children do not try to take all the ornaments off.
On a walk at the park! The best double stroller! It is sad to say that this is the best photo I have of them together. Don't get me wrong they are precious, but at some point I would love for them to sit side by side and smile at the same time.
They are smiling in this one....maybe I am asking too much.
They are growing up SO fast. Anna is 21 months and Eliza is 8 months.
This is one of my dresses that I had as a little girl that my mom kept for me to use for my little girl one day. I don't know why Anna looks so sad. She loves her owl dress. She can say owl and I taught her what sound the owl makes. We had fun saying Hoo Hoo. Oh well!
Eliza waving hello to her MaMa, which by the way she is saying! She is also saying Dadadada and babbabab.
Here are a couple pictures from our trip to NC to see Annette and Family. The flash on my camera is STILL broken :( One day I will get it fixed so I can take pictures indoor's once again. I say all that to say this, if you have great pictures from that weekend please send them my way. The two above I stole from my sister-in-law :)
These are some recent pictures of my precious girls. Anna is now 19 months and Eliza is now 6 months. Life is extremely busy with two little ones! It is getting easier though. I can hardly remember what life was like when Eliza was born. It is all a blur! Some how we survived a newborn, a 13 month old, finding a house, and a new job for John. Whoa...that's alot! Eliza is finally sleeping better at night and Anna is learning new words every day. We have moved into a new house and I hope by Christmas will be settled and feeling more like home. John is enjoying his new job as Pastor of Hope Aglow Fellowship Church and chaplan in the Blue Ridge jail system. Enjoy the pictures friends, family and blog stalkers!
Our first house! We are official home owners and in debt :) We closed on the house June 6th and signed our name MANY times!!! Just an FYI the green shutters and doors will be painted ASAP. The color the previous owner used was race car green. Not the best color for doors and shutters in my opinion. I will put more pictures up of the house, backyard and rooms when we are more settled. We needed a house in a certain amount of time and God provided for our every need!
Yesterday was a really pretty day and so we decided to take advantage of the nice weather. Here are some pictures from the trail looking at the James River. Anna loved it! Her new phrase is "I see. I see." Meaning I want to see. One of the photo's is of her trying to climb the fence.
