Beautiful list this week. I LOVE this picture of our little ones. Do you mind if I share it in my post? What a fun night having the gang together again :)

Amber, I still can't believe you have so, so, so many thank you's. I just keep falling further and further behind your list – I'll never catch up. Maybe you should start developing an attitude of non-gratitude :-). Anyway, my favorites from your list are two – first, librarians. They were Google before Google was Google. You know? And second – I cannot believe how big your baby is – big, strong, healthy, a bouncing baby blessing. I'm still sticking to the idea that he'll one day buy you that home on the beach from his Pro football contract money. And Amber, I never get to read enough of the blogs that I heart – and you know I heart yours. So instead of posting 10 posts a week on my two blogs – I’m going down to eight posts per week. I’m thinking that the extra time can be used to read more – and for goodness sakes, comment every once in a while. I’m sorry I haven’t read you enough – this should help. Anyway, God bless you Amber, and Merry Christmas!

So glad you had a fun and relaxing time Friday- I have a good picture of Bennett picking his nose he he :)

Love the picture of all the kiddos at the end- Mckenzie looks so big with her long hair, and all the kids look adorable!
