Merry Christmas!!

I've posted a couple of videos and if you are viewing this post on the blog, don't forget to scroll to the bottom and pause the music player.


Well to start, I need to back up just a little bit.  

The Sunday before Thanksgiving, One Happy Momma (not so much on this day, lol) slipped and fell on the porch as I was stepping out to go to church.  Sprained my entire left foot.  I know, crazy, huh?  Didn't go to the ER until Thanksgiving night to make sure it wasn't broken or fractured.  Thanks goodness it wasn't, but a sprain is just as painful, believe me.  The doc put me in a walking boot and used that for just over a week and now back in shoes, but if I'm on my feet for too long, it starts to hurt beyond belief.  But it's healing and even though it may be slowly, I can walk.  :D

And before we knew it, December was upon us and it has been one busy month here at our house!


We started the month off with going to cut down our Christmas Tree.  We got a GREAT deal and a beautiful tree.  Mind you, we usually put up an artificial tree, but this is Michael's first Christmas home and we wanted to share getting a tree with him.  Honestly, I don't think he realized the tree was coming into the house, until he saw Papa and Jacob bringing it in.  His face lit up and all's he could say was, "wow!"  Okay he also said, "cool!"  :D

Mind you it took another 2 weeks to get it decorated.  But it's done and the kids helped and we're all enjoying having the tree in the house and when it's lit at night, it's just so beautiful!

Then...








On Sunday, the 11th, we had our first Family church service and both Miss Magoo and Mister performed.  They looked so cute all dressed up to the nines.  :D  We just love to watch the littles do things like this, they just love church so much!

Next...





Miss Magoo has been learning all about the Christmas Story this year and she tells us the story on a regular basis.  I videoed her telling it the other night.  She really does have it down and understands exactly what it's about, Jesus' birth!  She has such a LOVE for Jesus.  She is happiest when she talks about Him throughout her day or talking to someone, to anyone else about Him.    I know He is smiling at our precious girl, ever time she mentions His name.  :D

Oh and she is so excited that she has not one, but two loose teeth!  They're right next to each other and one of them will be coming out any day now.  She is doing everything she can to loosen it up so it will come out and the tooth fairy will come and visit.  Maybe by the end of the year it will come out.  So she hopes.  :D

So these are some of the things that have kept us busy this month and Christmas is fast approaching.  Looking forward to spending time with our family and watching Michael having his first Christmas home with us.

Thanking God for sending Jesus to us!  We are blessed beyond words and oh so grateful!


Wishing all of you a wonderfully blessed Christmas!!

Our Blog

Well apparently my custom domain name expired and after working on this for almost a week to get it resolved, it doesn't look like it will be anytime soon.

So in the meantime, I have had to go back to using becauseweareled.blogspot.com

But at least the blog is back up and working again.

Now maybe I'll get posting again with some of our families activities during the Christmas season.

I am so sorry for any inconvenience.
