Hello! It's been 4 months since I have updated! Yikes! The real reason I am now is because my dear friend Joy has guilted me into with her last post! So this is just for you Joy!

Lots of things have happened lately. Denton is growing like a weed and itching to crawl! He loves to chew on everything! He has two teeth so far and loves anything that has music.

We are doing well, busy as usual. We have been thinking very hard about redoing our bathroom. The only problem is that it is our ONLY bathroom and it would not be a one day job! Oh the joys of being a homeowner!

My mom was here to visit a few weeks ago and Doug's parents just left yesterday. Company is nice but so is routine! Have a great day!

4 Months Old Already!

Merry Christmas to everyone! We hope you all are doing well! Denton is already 4 months old! I can't believe it! We are excited for his first Christmas even though he doesn't have a clue! He is talking so much now and is so much fun to play with. He is quite the character! He seems to be getting much fatter, but a lady at church told me "It's the only time in life when it's cute to be fat!" Too true! He has to go for his 4 month checkup next week so we'll see how much he weighs. Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!

Christmas Parade!

Saturday was the Roanoke Rapids Christmas Parade. It was a little different this year. Instead of having it in the afternoon, it didn't start until 4 pm. That was both good and bad. Good because since it was dark all the floats had lights. Bad because it was so cold!!! It was in the 30's the whole time! Denton did very well but he fell asleep before the end. Doug only took videos of the parade so I only have pictures of Denton!

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

December is already here! I can't believe it! We have had a busy few weeks around here. Doug helped me put out all our decorations before Thanksgiving. That way when we came back from Bristol everything would be done. Denton loves to look at the Christmas tree with all the lights. Last night we finally got a family picture made. We met the photographer and hoped that Denton would at least be in a decent mood. He was and we even got a few smiles out of him! Tomorrow I am taking him for his 3 month pictures. Hopefully they will be even better!

Yesterday I decided to be a little festive and bake some cookies. Well, I didn't have any baking soda so I searched my cookbook for any cookie recipe that didn't require it. I finally found one for sugar cookies! Well, needless to say, they were a little bland and boring. Doug said they tasted like raw dough. At least I tried! I guess I'll just have to go back to sipping hot chocolate!

This and That

Things are going well here in North Carolina. Except for lingering colds we are all doing great. Doug is busy as always designing flyers for our revival, the new church calendar along with all the normal stuff. I am just trying to keep my head above water cleaning the house and doing laundry! Denton is doing great! He is always smiling and is starting to talk more. He is also rolling over both ways and trying oh so hard to sit up.

It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away. The time has flown by! I can't wait for Christmas. I keep trying to talk Doug into getting out the decorations early but I don't think he's going to give in!

I am also very excited that our good friends Phil and Michelle Gage only live 2 hours away now! Yeah!! Can't wait to spend some time with them! Doug and I are so happy that the Lord has led them to serve at a good church (and that they are so close!). Michelle, if you read this, you really need to call me!
