Gonna pick back up...

Yes it has been months since I have blogged, mainly because I could never sit longer than 2 minutes at the computer without a child crying. :)
So, there is so much to talk about. Mainly Mason has grown like a weed and is now 15 months old. He is talking quite a bit and says several distinguishable words. He says "mumay" for mommy, "DAAAA" for Daddy, "sissy" for Bridgette. A few other words- giraffe, food, milkie, wa-wa (water), Nene "Mimi", Paw-paw, truck "vroom vroom", all his animal sounds, please, thank you, Santa, Jesus, pasta, Elmo, and many many others. Our favorite thing is when he sees his Dad he yells DAAAAA. It's so precious.
we just went to Dollywood to see the Christmas lights last night and it was the beginning of a new holiday tradition for us. We just loved being there at night in the cool, brisk weather. We laughed and saw Santa, rode some rides, sipped hot chocolate. It was a little perfect. :) Mimi Nina and Paw-Paw Marshall went with us.
I have really been into establishing some fun family traditions, from Christmas lights and carols, to every day traditions like singing and dancing to fun music while I cook dinner. I love the thought of establishing comfortable routines that our children will look forward to for years to come.
Tomorrow is a special day for our church, it will be our first Happy Birthday Jesus party at the North Knox campus of Faith Promise, and I am just so happy to be a part of it.

We have also joined a spectacular group of people to "do life with" at the church- we feel so blessed to be a part of such a loving church that is reaching out to everyone in Jesus' name.
