The Week of Christmas

Just a hodge podge of events leading up to Christmas.
I have loved Christmas this year. It hasn't been as stressful in years past and it all started with ME. I found that Christmas wasn't stressful it was ME that was stressful.
Mothers make the home. They can make it stressful or peaceful. It all starts with us.
We have bought less. Visited people more. It's amazing how different this year has been.
We have mainly been enjoying our sweet new boy.
All of our boys at our church the Wednesday before church. They had a fun Wednesday for the kids. Santa pictures, games, and pizza. The boys had a great time.
Kevin had a work Christmas dinner on a Friday night. That same morning Karson got sick with the stomach bug. He was throwing up all night and so I couldn't leave him to attend with Kevin.
Kipton decided to be daddy's date that night and they had a great time together. They looked so handsome before leaving.

Kase turned 2 months old on the 21st of December. He is a growing boy!

All of my boys. My life is one picture :)

Hope your Christmas week was well.

The week before Christmas

Just wanted to share a few pictures from our home. 

Three boys by the tree. 

We have had very warm days here in WV for it to be almost Christmas. One day 70 and feeding chickens didn't seem too dreadful that day. 

Kipton and his girls 

Sleeping babies are the best :)

Our boy is growing now! Thankful.

Hope you are ready for Christmas!!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

It's December 11th, and it has been a busy month so far.
The boys enjoy holding their little brother. Kipton especially wants to hold him and rock him. If you can imagine a 5 year old's rocking is a sight to see.
This picture says a thousand words to me.
Blessed. Honored. Thankful. Full.
Just to name a few.
Karson - (6) Kipton - (5) Kase - (7 weeks)
I enjoy having the tree up. It is a beautiful backdrop for pictures. I changed up our tree this year. I used to have a lot of the deco mesh, but it is just not my style anymore. I like simple, clean, and country. My tastes continue to change. Even in my clothes, my tastes are changing.
My big boys looking so big!

Christmas Tree 2015
I put burlap ribbon in between the layers. It has red and gold ornaments and the sweet ones that my boys have made. I have Kevin's deer antlers placed around the tree to give it that country feel. The top has red picks in it with berries also.
Kipton is sure proud of his little brother. He wants his picture taken in front of the tree with Kase often. He is a big helper. Both boys have fed him and diapered him. They help me talk to him and sing when he is fussing in the evenings. They are really a big help to me.
Karson had a program at school this past week. It was about elfs and he really enjoyed the play. However, he is not much on singing in front of large crowds, or wearing an elf hat :)
But he did his part, and it was cute!

I hope your December is going well!
I hope to get a post of my Christmas decorations up soon!
