Happy New Year!

Dustin and I spent New Year's Eve snuggled up in our living room watching movies and holding and playing with our boys.  Luke is not doing much other than feeding and sleeping, but that makes him a prime candidate for cuddling while watching TV.  Matthew is in love right now with a box full of plastic balls and a pop up tent he received for Christmas from Aunt Dori and Uncle Nate and also with Mom and Dad's iPad.  He spent most of the evening playing with those three items.  On the iPad, he enjoys playing a farm animal peek-a-boo game that we've downloaded and he and Dustin generally had fun playing it and goofing around on the floor with other toys. 

Matthew was in bed by 8:30 and Luke by 10 PM.  Matthew slept through the night (as usual) and Luke was up again to eat at 1 AM and again at 2:30 and 5:45. 

Today, we have pretty much relaxed around the house.  We activated a free trial for Netflix and watched a few movies this afternoon. For lunch, Dustin made cookies, a ham and cheesy potatoes and for dinner, I made mashed potatoes, pork and sauerkraut.  It's almost time for Matthew's bath... but for now, he and Dustin and sitting on the couch eating grapes while I hold baby Luke and stare at his sweet face!

As I look forward to 2013, I pray for good health for our family.  I will ask God everyday to watch over our boys and Dustin and I and to help us share the love that we receive from others.  In addition, I ask for Him to grant me a deeper understanding of technology and medicine and for the faith to cast my cares on His shoulders.

  1. Kristin, I've been thinking of your family often and how wonderful it must be to have your new boy join your family! I am asked a few times a week if I've heard any updates from you. You've got people here that are thinking of and praying for your family! God bless.
