Ammon & Carter’s New Bicycles

The tricycles Mamaw bought for Carter and Ammon two years ago were still being used just about every day, but it was time to move up to a bicycle. When Ammon, Carter, Sean, and I did the Santa list before Thanksgiving, both of the children put a bicycle on their lists.

I was 5 years old when I got my first bicycle, but I didn’t learn to ride without training wheels until I was 7. I’m not too sure how they will do without training wheels, but I will keep you all updated…LOL

One more thing. I love coveralls for both Carter and Ammon and myself. They are so warm, easy to put on during the winter months, and easy to toss in the washer and dryer if they get dirty. Hey, and aren’t they a contrast to the “Cutesy Christmas clothes”? (You cannot peg what this family wears!) ;o)

We Survived Christmas 2012!

I got Ammon and Carter up at 7:30 (I’m soooo glad there is sleeping and no peeking during the wee-morning hours during this age) to tell them that Saint Nicholas has been here. I loved reading “Twas the Night Before Christmas” on Christmas Eve, and Carter and Ammon were anxious for Santa.

They had a good and blessed morning with their Santa toys. Their biggest gift and challenge is their bicycles.

Santa was good to Carter!

Ammon and Carter’s Nana has the Jesus Christ’s spirit of GIVING during Christmas, and she spares no expense on her grandchildren. They are very blessed (in a familial way & material way …LOL…) to have their Nana.

I hope and pray that you and yours enjoyed Christmas 2012. Starting and ending the day with my family and with Jesus the Christ child in my heart was my favorite and most important part.

Merry Christmas

Dear Friends, Family, & Blog visitors, thank you so much for being Christmas blessings. Have a peaceful Christmas Eve. Put aside the thoughts of gifts, preparing Christmas lunches and dinners, and find some alone time to think of a traveling and anxious mother and father (Mary & Joseph), who together brought Jesus the future Christ into the world in a lonely stable with only God’s creatures as witnesses. And, oh my, envision the star of Bethlehem that shown where Jesus lay, with it picture the angels those heavenly hosts singing of his birth. Thank you God for our Jesus, and thank you Jesus for choosing to come to this earth as a babe so as to experience life just the way we do.

Merry Christmas everyone, and may you carry the Christ Child, Jesus the man and preacher, and Jesus the Christ our Lord and Redeemer in your hearts every day of the coming New Year. With love, Haven

Ammon & Carter’s Christmas Fashion Show

Before I begin, please let it be known that the most that was paid for Ammon a dress was probably $20. Carter’s sweaters cost even less.  EVERYTHING was bought after Christmas of 2011 in those BIG BLOWOUT SALES. This isn’t a brag about expensive children’s clothes, it’s about being blessed to dress our children in cutesy Christmas clothes. I know Ammon enjoys the clothes. Carter couldn’t care less. However, Sean and I LOVE the pictures and memories that we make. The real blessing is that God gave us the children to dress, and for that we are eternally grateful. Please enjoy the blog “Christmas Fashion Show”.

Toys R Us 2012

It’s so cool to enjoy the Ferris Wheel at the Toys R Us in Times Square, New York City. Ammon and Carter really enjoy going there even if it is just to “look at toys”.

It’s so cool to see Carter & Ammon growing. I am including their last year’s link so we can all compare.

Happy Monday, and enjoy the music!

When I went out with the hounds last Friday morning, we had such a picturesque frost on the ground. Mother Nature and the art that she creates is incredible: the ice crystals on the clover or the feathery, ice designs on the sheets of ice on our pond. The frost was so heavy that there was still frost on the ground in the shaded areas at 10 o’clock that morning.

The frost reminded me of the opening lines of “The Christmas Waltz” song. I never really appreciated the song until one of my favorite singers/actresses, Kristen Chenowith, sang it on her Christmas album from 2009. I want to share the song with you all. Enjoy and have a blessed Sunday.
