New Members of the Family!

Zachary David Reed

Naomi Faye Rollins

This morning at 7:57, my sister Aly gave birth to her 6th child!!! Zachary David was 9 pounds 2 ounces and 21 inches long! He is such a cutie! I am a blessed lady to have a new niece and nephew all in the same month! Brittany and Jared had Naomi Faye on December 7th and she weighed 9 pounds 3 ounces! Big babies just run in both sides of the family I guess! Both babies arrived 1 week early to the delight of their mommies and both are doing well! Congratulations Jared and Brittany and Brad and Alyson! Aren't these babies beautiful??

Shepherds watching over their flocks by night...

Anson made his spectacular debut as a musician/actor on Sunday night! He and all the four-year-olds at our church were sheep in the nativity program! I would love to say that he stole the show with his singing and doing all the correct hand motions, but it was quite the opposite! It was all pretty funny, actually... when they were supposed to stand, he crawled around the feet of his peers. And when they were supposed to say their scripture passage with hand motions, he continued to look in the wrong direction and do nothing. But, hey! He was there with a happy heart, a great attitude, and had a great time! When I asked him what his favorite part was, he said "Singing all the songs!" I guess God can hear the songs we sing "in our heart", too! :o) So we will be working on some things, like watching the teacher and doing what he is supposed to do... he is definitely an individual! :o)

Anson and Ella

Here are some pics of their new bunk beds!


I have been a blog slacker for the past month! I will try catch everyone up with a couple posts...

Thanksgiving was great here! Both sets of grandparents came to visit us as well as Auntie Megan and Uncle Gavin and Megan's friend Whitney. We had 11 people for Thanksgiving dinner! My parents stayed for the weekend (Dusty's went to their cabin then back to FL) and we went to Stone Mountain for the Christmas festivities! There were tons of lights and a train ride around the mountain and food! It was a fun way to start the Christmas season. On Saturday we celebrated Christmas with my parents since they are going to be in Maine with Aly's family for the real Christmas. (Hopefully Aly's baby boy will decide to come before Christmas!) So there were tons of presents to open and we all had so much fun! One of their presents was a new bunk bed that my parents made!! Anson and Ella are officially sharing a room now and they LOVE their new beds! Sharing is going pretty well, although I separate them at nap time so Ella can actually rest. She gets distracted with all the toys! So that was our Thanksgiving in a nutshell! We just love this time of year!
