It's been so long since I last posted that I don't really know where to start. Several family members have hinted around to update my blog, so they motivated me to take the plunge :)
Where did December go? The month went so fast. I so look forward to Christmas and spending time with family and then it seems like it's over so quickly. Even though it went quickly, we had a wonderful Christmas season.
We went down to my parents in Burlington for four nights the week of Christmas. We mainly relaxed, ate, watched movies, read, and my mom & I went shopping the day after Christmas. We celebrated Christmas day at my Grandma's house. There were 14 adults and 3 kids. I got to meet 3 new family members (or soon to be) for the first time. My cousin Sarah brought her boyfriend, Dalon, for Christmas and he proposed to her on Christmas Eve. It was fun to meet Dalon and celebrate their engagement. He's a great guy and we are really excited for Sarah.
The other family members I met were two foster children that my two cousins are caring for. One is Brenna's age and the other is ten. It was so fun to meet them and love them as if they were part of the family. My cousins are doing a great job parenting them and loving them. It is so neat that they are opening up their home and heart to children that are in need. What a great example of Christ.
Brenna enjoyed Christmas as well. She's getting better at unwrapping gifts and enjoyed all the fun things to play with at grandma and grandpa's house: Zeke (their dog), my mom's old jewelry, tree ornaments, baby stroller, etc. She also enjoyed a bath in their big tub. She is at such a fun age and doing so many new things. There were several times that my parents, Jared and I would just sit and watch her play.
