"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." - Psalm 139:13-16

Abby's First Christmas

We had a great Christmas. Abigail was overwhelmed on more than one occasion. She did not know what to think with all the paper laying around (paper is one of her favorite things). We are so thankful for this past year. There is too much that has happened to even try and think of it all. Abigail has taken us on journey that no one could have ever dreamed up. Colton has made us so proud with his continued hard work in school and in being a great big brother. Thanks to everyone for a great year and we can't wait to see what 2009 brings. Here are some of our holiday pictures:

The Candy Cane Festival was a bust, but at least we met some cool elves

We saw Santa at the Texas Road House! Abby was amazed.

Abby and Nash got their first cars

All we hear in the morning now is Indiana Jones
Abigail in her Christmas dress (Thanks Mima)

The best looking kids around and they are pretty good too (so Santa says)

One of, if not Abby's first ornament. I think she likes it

The Happiest boy in the world

The happiest girl in the world

Now it's time to play with all the new toys
(See the Chia Pet in the last picture? We have given this exact one to Colton for three years running. I can't wait to share this joke when he is older.)
PS - Sorry it has been a while since our last update, but just you all know, Abigail's palate surgery is on March 17th (Happy St Patrick's day)

New Pictures

I thought we needed a little change in the look of Abby's blog so here it is. I picked the picture at the top because I think it shows exactly who Abigail is. She has always been so curious and so alert to her surroundings. She loves getting up on the shelf of our coffee table as you can also see in previous pictures. Colton and Abby continue to make us so proud every day. We have begun to update our other blog as well. That blog will be mostly just pictures and captions and will probably be mostly about Colton. Here are some pictures of Abby without any arm restraints or anything.
"You want some of this?"

Close up. Dr. Allen did such a good job. Thank God for the good people we are surrounded with!

Is something funny?

Abby's first touch of snow! She pretty much loved it.
