Let's Catch Up!

Christmas morning! We had a wonderful Christmas!

Kaeleigh Jay will be 12 in April. TWELVE! She is such a beautiful young lady. She's in the 6th grade, she works hard and has straight A's! She enjoys singing and is in choir at school. She dreams of opening a salon with her friend where she will specialize in makeup and her friend will specialize in hair. (Just like Aunt Korie!!) She may or may not be having interest in boys. ;)

Mackinley James just turned 10! Double digits! I can hardly believe this. He enjoys video games, video games, video games. :) He recently discovered Calvin and Hobbes and reads as many as he can. (YAY) He dreams of having his own YouTube channel. He also wants to be a policeman like Daddy, and/or have a "techy" job.

Piper Renae is 7 going on 17. She is all spunk and fire and she's hot or she's cold...no in-between! She loves to read. Right now her love is Junie B. Jones. She still gets lost in her imagination and loves to pretend and play with dolls and Barbies. She dreams of being a vet, a good mama, and a baker. (Seen here about to make cookies with Sissy and Daddy in her chef hat from Robin)

Hershel is 1 and the joy of our lives! We don't know how we were a family before we had him. He enjoys tackling with Daddy and Mack, eating treats of all kinds but especially cheese, and he is sure to get in a good solid 18 hours of sleep each day. He dreams of finally removing each and every squirrel from the backyard for good.

For Christmas the kids and I gave Jason a Kindle Fire 10. I researched art apps and gave him a list of the best 10. He has been dabbling in it, learning to draw and paint digitally. He's such a wonderful artist, I'm excited to see where this new medium takes him. He works two jobs to provide for us. He is an amazing daddy. He is the love of my life and my best friend. He is a picture of God's grace for me, because I certainly don't deserve him.

I recently discovered there's a tiny artist living inside me. :) While I cannot draw...I do enjoy digitally enhancing and manipulating artwork. I've started a little hobby creating social media banners and other pieces, mostly people ask me to use characters from the game World of Warcraft. I still have so much to learn, but I am having fun and it's a wonderful creative outlet for me. Some of you may be surprised to learn of this "other life" I lead, while others of you have always known my geek at heart.
