Wow. December. Where'd you go?

So, December. My how in the world is it almost 2014? December flew by in a blink. in a flash. I believe one big recap is in store!

December 1-7

We spent a ton of time loving on cousins and beginning the first of the holiday season. Beau's Nana Sue kept him this week and we partied hard with Nana! Christmas with a baby is really so much fun!! Even though Beau had NO idea it was his first Christmas, we did and that was the best. 

Best friends. And cousins. 

Big bow head girls. Loving on their baby.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! 

Snuggles with Nana! 

Bath time is serious business. 

December 8, 2013

This date gets it's very own spot, because this is one of those landmark days of our family. (No not the day Beau slept through the night, which did insight almost as deep of spiritual significance. Kidding). On this day, we dedicated Beau to The Lord. We prayed that God would guide us to raise Beau as a man that seeks God's heart. Our prayer isn't that Beau is "good" boy because that behavior is pleasing, but that he will be a person who truly seeks and loves The Lord because that is the only way to live your life and have true joy and meaning. Unfortunately, we live in a world that tries to make that statement seem intolerant and untrue. But truth is truth, and we wanted to landmark a day and covenant with God to raise Beau in a manner pleasing to him. 

So, Beau. Find the Lord young, and cling hard. Your mama and daddy will fight for that for you.

Love my boys.

Best Dad. 

Nana and Ghee (I mean Granddaddy according to him)

We were at a surprise engagement party for A Fri!! soon to be A Gill coming live and in action 2014. Beau was such the gentleman. He got passed around and loved on by many. He especially loved Emily's husband Taylor! 

December 16-20

Nana Sue was back in action to keep our baby. It really has been so fun getting to see our parents so much during these weeks. And a huge blessing to have an easy transition back to work before B starts daycare in January! 

Matching babies. Love them!!

Merry Christmas Eve!! We went to church and celebrated the birth of our Savior. I can't help but tear up every time I hear O Come All Ye Faithful. "Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing. O come let us adore him." I pray that I, and we, do that better and intentionally in 2014.
