I've only blogged twice this month and I probably won't get around to blogging any more. Not because I don't want to, but because we're headed to Grand Junction on Thursday and I very rarely post from my parents house. I have to say, even though I despise the cold, I love December! It just feels so holiday-ish, and since the Christmas season is my favorite, I guess I can put up with the cold for a little bit. However, with cold come germs, and out comes Kari the germaphobe, so we haven't left our house too much. I know that you're thinking "Jonathan had Strep for 2 weeks AT YOUR HOUSE" and you'd be right, so the not leaving the house thing really doesn't mean there aren't, I'm just a freak.
Anyway~ I have thoroughly enjoyed my hot chocolate every morning and my occasional trip to Starbucks for a caramel apple cider. I constantly have on Christmas music no matter where I am. I have also enjoyed getting my girls dressed in cute winter outfits like this:

Going to church

"Little sister"

What you can't tell from this picture is how ridiculously cute her boots are.

Well, I hope you all have a wonderful December, and I'll be posting more in January!

My girls

I just want to tell you all that I think my life is great. I'm not trying to brag, just let you know that I am happy. I'm grateful for all that we have, and I really enjoy having 2 kids. More than I enjoyed having just one. Of course, having a 2 year old and a newborn doesn't always make for great days, but we're just taking it one day at a time. And most days are great. I especially love it when I come into the living room to find this:

Breast pumping.

Excuse the nakedness. She seriously does not like to have clothes on. Ever. Her favorite thing is to get naked, wrap up in her blanket, and sit in front of the space heater in her room.

Addilyn is 7 weeks old now, which is crazy! Time is flying by. She's going through the dreaded baby acne phase right now, so I haven't been taking too many pictures, but here is one:

I know one of the greatest gifts we all get is thinking that our kid(s) are the best/greatest/cutest. There are days when I don't think mine are the "best", but I definitely love them the VERY MOST!
