Look! It's us being married again! Actually it's quite the opposite....some of you may remember four years ago when we said our vows we promised the whole "til death do us part thing..." but there was one stipulation...when the Broncos played the Bills all marital promises were void. While we're smiling in the picture, I can assure you that I am taking full advantage of the clause right now :) (that, and I am a sore loser!) Five more hours of amnesty and you better bet I'm milking this one.
Nevertheless, we got out today (something that is very rare) and had a good time (despite the 15 degree weather...only in Colorado would the sun be shinning so brightly and it be that cold outside!)
Faith just keeps trucking along. Christmas should be quite amusing this year. Whenever Faith is introduced to something new she cries. My mom brought her a princess wand last week and Faith was in tears.... think she'd like a doll? Nope- absolutely terrified of it. So as long as we're not too attached to any ideals, I think it should be a good time. :)
Check out our little ham:
Now that Faith can pull herself up on things (!!!!!) we were a little worried she'd try to do so on the Christmas tree. Apparently we forgot we were dealing with a sensory kid because she wants nothing to do with the bright, poky thing. So this is as close as she is going to get. The shirt she is wearing reads, "Good things come in small packages." I wonder if the people who came up with that concept of this shirt knew how absolute that would be for families like ours.
May you see the blessings in the small stuff,
Jen (and no Brian tonight...he's not allowed...j/k.)
PS: I'm really not kidding- after the game one of our friends joked that Brian would be sleeping on the couch tonight. Since we never sleep in the same bed we won't have that problem. ;P I guess I'll have to find another way.....
