Christmas Gift.

This year we were blessed with a wonderful Christmas gift.
My sister, Brandy, delivered a healthy baby boy on December 26th.
Brogan Manual was born at 6 lbs and 14 oz and 20 inches long.

My nephew was wanting to get a good look at me. He wanted to remember the one who helped change his first poopy diaper. Not a pleasant experience!

Since, my sister and her family couldn't make it to the farm for our Christmas celebration.
We took Christmas to her.

Big brother, Maxton, opening his presents.

Big cousin, Mallory, holding the new baby.

Santa made a trip to our daycare today! Mallory was sooooo excited! Hannah? Not so much.

This is the next project that we are working on in our new house. The kitchen walls were yellow, the counter tops were cobalt blue, and the floor was white tile. All three have been renewed. I LOVE my kitchen now. The floors were replaced by a contractor. The counter tops replaced by a firefighter friend who does construction work on the side and my mom & I painted the walls. It's beautiful!

In addition to the kitchen, Todd has been working on insulating the attic.

This was the foyer to our new home. Didn't really do anything for me.
Kinda boring.


The chandelier just "pops" now. You probably didn't even notice it in the "before" picture.

I've always wanted a red room.

We're working on the fireplace. Isn't the mantle just beautiful?

This is Matthew's room.

Before it was a striped gold wall. Not really appealing to a seven year old. He wanted blue walls. So he got them.

Happy Birthday!

My sweet boy celebrated his 7th birthday today.


Seven years ago, these boys were brought into the world. December 2002.
Little did their mothers know that their paths would cross that spring and that their sweet boys would soon be inseperable. The best of friends.
Happy Birthday to Matthew (December 2nd) and Casen (December 11th).
