Today we met with a builder to get a price estimate on a house we are wanting to build. Here are our upcoming challenges: finishing touches on our house, sell our house, find somewhere to live while our house is being built, build a house. All of that will require much prayer and patience. If you know someone wanting to buy a house . . . send them our way! We are truly busting at the seams of this living space with two boys.
Hope you enjoyed the pics from Christmas! More to come from our Christmas here . . .

Unfortunately I will be unable to follow all of the rules because I do not know 7 people with blogs, but I will do all of the people that I know and here are my oddities:
1. I have a fear of popping balloons.
2. It really annoys me when my eyebrows, or other peoples' are brushed the wrong way. Although, that also goes for my arm hairs as well. This is probably the weirdest. Like, I can't watch someone brush their eyebrows the wrong way without "fixing" my own eyebrows, even if they are okay.
3. I do not care for nuts in most desserts, like brownies or fudge. But, chocolate/peanut butter in combination is okay.
4. I am INCREDIBLY ticklish.
5. My hands are super squishy, like bendable almost.
6. I can't touch frosted glass, the thought of it makes my skin crawl.
7. I can't watch the movie, The Other Sister, without sobbing. Not tearing up, not tears running down my face, SOBBING to the point that the dollar theater security guard came and asked if Jennifer and I were okay, except that happens EVERY TIME!

However, the thing weighing heaviest on my heart is a prayer. My friend Courtney is 35 weeks pregnant and is going in for amniocentisis on Wednesday, hoping to hear that baby's lungs are developed enough for her be induced that afternoon. She has a rare condition that makes her VERY itchy, uncomfortable, and can be very risky to the baby's health. She was quite blessed to be in the right place at the right time when she had an emergency with her first baby. Please pray for her. Please pray for her unborn baby. Please pray for her family. We love you Courtney . . . know that God is holding you tightly in His hands. If you want to visit Courtney's blog you may find it here: http://breedlovenotwar.blogspot.com/

Michael has not taken it too well that Cayden has been getting a lot of attention however. He has been a jealous bee! Last night though I took him to a birthday party. He was very polite, listened well, and was a good eater. I was very proud to claim him as my son. Today he and dad are off getting haircuts and buying a pumpkin for us to carve, which will be a first. Next weekend is Hey Day which should be a lot of fun!

2-If you ask him to wave, he is GREAT at it! Sometimes you will even get a double wave!
Michael will be going to his first birthday party this weekend that will involve lots of kids. He has been to family parties, but this one will have several children. I think I might need medication of some sort!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If anyone drives tanker trucks we sure could use some gas in Asheville! People are getting CRAZY around here!!!!!
Cayden is fighting us on giving up the bottle. He refuses to take his cup in the morning, wants only a bottle at daycare.
Michael's pants issues continue. Today he threw a holy fit about wearing wind pants. He wanted NOTHING to do with them. On a funnier note, his daycare does Computer Pals every other week. Since Michael is still working on pronouncing everything well, his version of Computer Pals is "Peter pals." We are trying hard to correct this faux pas! But . . . it does make us giggle a little.

Please pray for my friends Shanna and Christal. Both have family members in the hospital that are vital to their lives! May the Lord hold these families in His hands and may they feel His presence with them at all times.
Updates on the boys:
We are working on weaning Cayden off of his bottles and to a sippy cup. He is putting up some resistence though. Fun things he did this weekend: waved hi pretty consistently and growled like a lion at a puppet we have.
Michael hates pants. He would like to wear only shorts forever. "These shorts are too long mommy" he said when I put a pair of jeans on him. Hee hee!

Michael: He is working on writing some letters. So far he is doing pretty well with the letter H and O. He can tell us how to make an M, but hasn't perfected that yet (up, down, up, down he says). He can pick out an M, H, and O consistently when looking at letters different places. We are also learning how to play games, such as Candy Land and Lucky Ducks. Potty training is going great. The only time he is still wearing a diaper is at night and we don't see that changing in the near future.
Cayden: He is still "cruising". However, he is getting braver about letting go. He is also "talking" all the time. He is eating people food more often, and really doesn't care to eat baby veggies anymore at all. Since we stopped feeding him baby food dinners he is spitting up considerably less. He is SO smiley. He is definitely exhibiting the stranger and separation anxiety though which breaks my heart!
