Oh hello there! If there is one thing you should know about me, it's that I love change! I love fresh starts and blank slates.
And one change I've decided to make this year is to update our family blog! If there is anyone out there who still cares to follow along, you can catch all the updates here.
See you there!
I finally finished our Christmas video. Yippee! Making these family videos brings me so much joy, especially when my kids could watch them a million times a day. Maybe this year I'll branch out and try some professional editing on Adobe Premier. Just maybe!
I've been cleaning up my picture files and came across these gems from November, when Oliver was just itty-bitty. I had grand visions of getting sweet nativity photos of the 3 of them, but quickly did I learn that if I thought taking pictures of 2 kids was hard, 3 was 100% harder. Who was I kidding to try to pull this off alone while Brandon was at work? One of them was always moving, my camera was on the wrong setting (didn't realize until it was done), Blake was annoyed at the itchy straw, Evelyn kept taking off her headwrap, and Oliver kept trying to bust out of his swaddling clothes. It's hilarious now and I'm sure in 10 years these will be priceless. You win some. You lose some.
About 6 months ago, we started watching Music and the Spoken Word on Sundays. It quickly became something we all looked forward to. Blake and Evelyn call it the "waterfall show" because often they have video clips of nature and waterfalls during the songs. I do love the music, but I love the inspirational messages.
The message from December really hit home for both Brandon and I and inspired our 2016 goals. Here's the message:
“It is not enough to be (busy),” wrote Henry David Thoreau. “So are the ants.” He then poses the question, “What are you (busy) about?”
