Merry Christmas!!

As this will likely be my last post before Christmas, I just want to wish you all a VERY Merry Christmas. I hope that this Christmas season you will take time to remember the most PERFECT gift we could ever receive: Jesus.We have been celebrating the Christmas season with lots of friends and great memories. Ty's work party was at a restaurant in Tampa called Bern's Steakhouse. To say it was delicious would be an understatement. We got to tour the wine cellar which has 350,000 bottles of wine - the largest private distributor in the country. The oldest bottles date back to the 1700s and cost as much as $10,000 a bottle! Here is a picture of our party in one of the wine aisles. We also had a fun gift exchange with our small group from church. I ended up with the gift that we brought, but I guess that was my fault since I brought kind of a crummy gift! We gave our small group leaders a gift certificate to Bern's Steakhouse so they could celebrate their 14 year anniversary. We have been incredibly blessed by this small group of Christian men and women. Because the Lord has blessed our lives with you all, we can comfortably call Tampa home.

Here's a funny picture of Molly and Colt. Boy was it hard to get them both behaving for a picture!
This is my favorite video of Colt this week. He is now rolling over from his back to his stomach! And he enjoys putting his feet in his mouth :)

Here is another video of Colt prop sitting, well at least for a little while....

Mr. Romantic

Today is the 6 year anniversary of the day Ty proposed to me. Yesterday, Ty conjured up another production that will be hard to forget. I have been bugging him for a while because of the lack of romantic gestures lately, so around 1pm I receive a bouquet of flowers. The card was sort of lame, but I called him to say thanks anyway. Then around 3pm, the doorbell rang again and there was ANOTHER bouquet of flowers and some candies. This time the card was very thoughtful. Around 5pm, I was in the front yard getting ready to walk with some of my neighbors. We saw a florist's van coming down the street. My neighbors said, "We saw the van at your house earlier. Wonder who's house he's going to now?" Well, the van proceeded to pull into my driveway again for the third time, this time with a BEAUTIFUL bouquet of roses.
When Ty came home from work, he took Colt and put him to bed. Then he mentioned going out to eat dinner, which I was not excited about because that meant we couldn't go eat until after Colt woke up from his nap. I sat down at the computer to do some things and the doorbell rang. Ty had been telling me all day that the Verizon guy was scheduled to come by (that way I'd be home for all the flower deliveries), so I figured it was him at the door. In walks a couple from our church small group (We Love you Abe and Julie!) with a whisk (a reference for Joyce and Lindsey). I was VERY confused and thought Ty had invited them over to go eat dinner with us as a surprise, when they said, "No, we are here to babysit while yall go out." So, Ty and I went out to play putt-putt, go carts, video games and eat burgers. What a thoughtful husband - really using his thoughtful gene. I love you Ty!
Here are some pictures I took of Colt this week in his cute reindeer hat :)
