Dear Boaz,
Mommy sure misses you! Sometimes it's the only thing I can feel. You've been in Heaven over a year now. Knowing where you are doesn't make me miss you less. So many times I wanted to buy you something this past year....just to see your face smile one more time. But I didn't, it would've been for me....not you. Some people think Heaven is all serious and somber...and if it was, I know it's lively with you there. There are so many things I miss about you....everything!
I have an idea for next Christmas for you....for us. I will be able to do something for me...for you...and others will benefit too! You know, I love to say your name. We picked it out, of course, special just for you. We tried quite a few, but none "fit" till we came to Silas Boaz.
Thanks for being such a great little boy! You weren't didn't pout. You had such a good attitude about all the time. Sometimes I had no idea how you were so good, I know I wouldn't have been. We had such great times together. You "bucked up" every time! You were the best buckaroo!
I know I'll always miss you something terrible, but I just wanted to tell you. It's ok with me that you don't miss us, I don't mind at all. I love you little man!
Merry Christmas Boaz! I know your having the best Christmas of all of us.
Love, Mommy

family time

when we left it was pretty nice
sun shining, short sleeves
 something happened as we drove north
first the leaves began changing
and we needed an extra layer of clothes  
 by the time we reached our destination
I was freezing...and wanted SEVERAL layers
I'm just southern
 I did get to take these awesome pics of snowflakes
 I couldn't believe how intricate the details were
on our way back 
we stayed a few nights in the mountains
the first thing we saw...
a flock of wild turkey
 the view from our room
one of God's many masterpieces
 I do love a fireplace!
 celebrated Timothy's birthday 
with one of our favorites
Great American Cookie Company
 gorgeous sunset
.  . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .  
 we took the kids ice skating
 they've all been a few times
 though it's been quite a while
 I felt like this most of the time
 they all caught on pretty good
 I refuse to put the pics of us falling :)
 Stonewall actually looks cute on all fours
but we all had a great time
 even if we were a little sore later
 it was worth it.
I love playing with my children!

happy birthday

for my birthday
Nick got me a super cool gift
a Canon PowerShot D10
and freezeproof
and shockproof 
(though I don't plan on testing that one).

so we had to test it out
in the pool
(the inside, heated one)

 I checked out the freezeproof easiest
since it was FREEZING
for 2 weeks (and counting)
the pics were pretty fun
 Caleb somersaulting
(chlorine was a lil strong)

 Caleb slid down the pole
 Daddy and Hunter making funny faces
