Much Delayed Photo Montage

Okay. These photos are much delayed and they are chronological in reverse order for the most part. Hope you enjoy Christmas photos and the Grandparent visit photos. We had such a wonderful Christmas holiday and one in retrospect that we weren't sure we were going to have the opportunity to celebrate the way we did. We are in such awe of how God has worked in Maia's life and in ours this year and we have much to be thankful for! I look at these happy photos and stand back in pure amazement of our Lord!

The grandkids and their Grams and Papa

Grandma Judy doting on her granddaughter just one more time.

Call me Rico Sauve! Don't hate me because I am handsome. Muhahaha!

Okay this is just so much fun!

I really love this painting set! Thanks Uncle Joel and Aunt Toby!

Both girls looking very content!

Well! Hello "dare"!

We love each other so much!

Taking a five. Try talking to me a little later,...Okay?

Usually a daily occurence at the Sutherland household. He's so darn cute even when he is being punished!

Our Papa probably facebooking. What's your status?

How Cute! Thanks Uncle Joel and Aunt Toby!

Wow! Too cool! And what is funny is that it only drives backwards. But Grams convinced Gideon that this Spiderman toy is "extra special" because of that! Hee hee! I love my caniving, mother!

It is a "must" that you stick out your tongue while balancing on roller skates! Didn't you know that?
My green guitar! It had to be green! I can't wait to sing and play worship songs with Uncle Joel and Uncle Micah when I come for a visit.

The first "look" as he walks out and sees the toys around the Christmas tree on Christmas morning! "Oh my!," he said.

The view that he "Oh My-ed"

Our good friend, Valjon. What a sweet dear lady and another auntie to our Maia and Gideon.

Clop, clop, clop went the donkey's feet
Clop, clop, clop down the stony street
Nod, Nod, nod went Mary's head
She was so tired she needed a bed.
Knock, Knock, Knock went Joseph at the door
Is there room for just one more?
No, no, no the innkeeper said.
Hmmm, wait, you could use my stable for a bed
Shh, shh, shh what is that I hear?
Waa, Waa, baby Jesus, so dear.

Our little Shepherd Boy.

Ah, Mom! Another Picture?!

Definitely a "look". That is a "look" for sure! :)

Resting! Snug and Warm.

Maia's Baby Dedication Ceremony

Her baby dedication dress! Too precious! The Reeds gave Maia this gorgeous ensemble! What a perfect dress for a perfect day!
Well, it is Kenny's birthday today. He is celebrating 34 years on this earth. Thank you, Lord for blessing our family with Kenny! He is such a wonderful husband, father, brother, and son! We are so encouraged to have an amazing person as him. May he have a great new year of life that continues to glorify the Lord with every breath. May he walk in God's steps each new moment.
May he find joy and peace with each new day! We love you, Kenny!
Kenny might have to share this birthday with a new family member. They think Gina is going to have this little girl today. I will keep everyone posted as soon as I hear more!
