It's COLD outside!

Ok, so...we moved to southern Alabama because we thought it would be warm here all winter long, right?? Wrong!! It is COLD. All the people down here are saying it is the coldest winter they have had in a long time. Yuck! I pictured a great winter with averages in the 60's, well...that is not what we are experiencing. We are stuck inside because it is too cold and damp to have the kids out for any length of time. We do have a occasionally warm day but mostly it is pretty chilly. :( So... we are spending A LOT of time inside.
Sean, Henry, Sophia, and Edith watching "The Wiggles" on television.
This is their very favorite show!

Henry and Sophia destroying the playroom.

Henry dumping all the toy baskets out and stacking them together. Edi looking at mommy to see if she is going to yell at Henry for dumping all the toys on the floor.

We are hoping for warm sunny days to come very soon. In the meantime we will watch "The Wiggles" everyday and try to get out some of our bottled out energy. Afterall they know all the moves to the dances. It's quite adorable to watch. When I pick up the video they all start yelling, "Quack, quack, quack, quack, quack". You gotta love those guys! ;)

Unto Him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think.

BIG Gymboree Fun!

We took the kiddos to Gymboree for the first time last week. We all had a great time. It was fairly inexpensive and the kids LOVED it.

Here is Henry playing soccer with daddy, you cannot see daddy.

Henry was very curious. He took his time and looked at everything in the room.

Silly Henry, that doesn't come off.

Edi sliding down the slide.

Edi climbing. Mommy was getting a little nervous. The little ones were very BRAVE.

Edi playing with bubbles for the first time. Yes...I am a terrible mother my kids have never played with bubbles before. :(

Edi being a little more cautious.

Edi resting with her balloon before we left.

Sean on the slide. Huh, that looks familiar. They all a bunch of followers. When one does something the others are never too far behind.

Seany in a tunnel.
Sean playing hoops.

Sean and daddy playing hoops.

Sean, Edi, and Sophia. Notice the red ball that Sophia has?...

Sophia again with the red ball.

Henry trying to figure out what in the heck those wierd little bubbles are doing.

Edi and Sophia trying to catch the bubbles.

Edi and Sophia.

Sophia trying to clean the bubbles off the floor and Henry trying to catch them.
Overall we had a really good time. The kids could have played forever. They did really well and they did not even cry when we left, the balloons helped I am sure. We are looking forward to many more fun outings as the weather gets a little warmer and the kids get much easier to take out. We are finally starting to have BIG fun in our little family and I am soooo glad. I did not think it was ever going to get easier but it is!!!!!!!!

Ye shall receive.

First visit with Great-Uncle Joe

My mom came down, Yay, and we decided to take a little roadtrip to see her brother Joe. He lives a little further North than we do. He hasn't seen the kids EVER. It was so fun to see him and let him meet the kiddos.

Sean, Daddy, and Henry on the floor.

Great-Uncle Joe, Sean, and Edith. As you can see there was A LOT of interesting things for the kids to look at and try to touch. It was a bit of a chore to keep their tiny curious hand to themselves.

Sean, Edith, and Henry on the floor AGAIN. They were facinated with the floor. I guess because of the design, they kept touching it and lying on it.

Great-Uncle Joe hugging Sean.

Great-Uncle Joe holding Sophia.

His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Daddy was off work today so we got to get out of the house. Yippee!! It was a warm 60 degrees and super sunny, as you can see by the brightness of the photos. It was a great day. We spent the morning walking at the beach and then we had lunch at our favorite Mexican restaurant! Daddy, Edi, Sean, Henry, and Sophia at the beach.

Sophia, Sean, Edi, Henry, and Daddy climbing on the bench.

Sophia, Sean, Edith, Henry, and Daddy playing.

Henry, Edith, Sophia, Daddy, and Sean playing in the sand.

Happy Valentine's Day! We had a perfect day celebrating our LOVE for our family. It could not have been better. The kids are getting easier and easier and we are really starting to be able to enjoy and cherish every moment!!!

And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is LOVE.

How time flies!

Sorry it has been so long since I updated. The kids now have their third cold in three months. The doctor said to keep them out of the church nursery! We had never put them in the nursery until recently and since then they have been sick every month. Just a little cold though nothing serious. However mommy and grandma are drowning in snot!!! YUCK!

Daddy's new job is a lot of hours, but grandma came to visit just in time for this latest cold outbreak and the Super Bowl of course. We are COLTS fans down here in the middle of a bunch of New Orleans fan. You cannot find anything Colts anywhere down here. Very weird for us!!

We are hoping the weather stays sunny so we can get outside today or tomorrow.

God is good all the time.
All the time God is Good!!!!
