Tomorrow is the big day! New house here we come!!!!
And in the spirit of Thanksgiving, a Thanksgiving Carterism: We've been really talking about what we are thankful for. Every day, usually more than once, we go around and talk about what we are grateful for. Ya know, the usual stuff...family, friends, a nice warm house to live in, the new baby, etc etc. Well, at first Carter was telling us that he was grateful for those same things. But then all of a sudden, he switched it up on us. So now it's "I'm thankful for Roxy....and Roxy's tail!" Well, as long as he's thankful for something I suppose!
We met over nine years ago and have been married for seven years. We have traveled all over together, have shared good times and bad, and now spend most of our time chasing our kids around! We believe God chose us for each other and we strive daily to keep him at the center of our marriage.
Our energetic six year old, and firstborn. He's a self procalimed genius. He loves playing with his friends, watching anything on PBS and VeggieTales, building with blocks, practicing his cartoon artist skills. He rules the roost and we couldn't imagine it any other way.
Our three year old daughter, a precious princess with her daddy wrapped around her finger. She is the daughter I always knew I would have long before I ever got married. She is a smiler and talker and lover of food, hugs and kisses, making puzzles, helping mommy in the kitchen, and loves both of her brothers (mostly!) She is a budding ballerina but loves the play in the mud and wrestle with the boys too. She is the most beautiful girl we have ever seen and we look forward to watching her grow and change over the next several months.
Our baby of the family...a walking, talking destructacon. He is hillarious, keeps us on our toes and is the funniest little toddler going on grown man I've ever seen!
