We did get enough snow to have some fun though. Luckily for Christmas Hannah got her very own toddler toboggan. She LOVES it!
Here is a video of her in her chariot being pulled by her trusty dog Kenai.

Kristina is doing good. She had a rough go of it but she did amazing. If all goes well they will be home tomorrow afternoon.
Good night! I am exhausted and I didn't even do all the work!

Kristina's water broke around 6am so we are heading to the hospital sometime this afternoon!
Also, pray that I (Kristi) will be a good coach and help to her and Adam!

As a step into toddler hood, I decided to pack up the bottles. Hannah hasn’t used a bottle in a couple weeks and she doesn’t seem to miss it. I decided to stop using bottles a couple weeks ago after talking to a friend who is a pedialdontic (kid’s dentist) assistant. She told me about a couple kids she had worked on that day. She didn’t know I still used a bottle; she was just sharing about her day. It was sad. They did a root canal on a 2.5 year old who still drank out of a bottle. Her teeth were rotting because of the bottle. Sadness…
This encouraged me to take the leap. We had been doing bottles only morning and night and I thought it would be hard for her to give those up, but it really wasn’t. I think I cared more about it than she did, I liked that time of closeness. Hannah didn’t seem to mind at all. Instead of a bottle I give her a sippy cup now and we still cuddle while she drinks her milk.
She is such a big girl now, next thing I know she will be off to school.

However, I can't help to think this is happening for a reason. I think of Proposition 8 dealing with gay marriage. The majority of people in California voted to make same sex marriage illegal. Then people started marching and crying and whining. They are so blinded by their sin. They are all over the TV trying to convince the rest of the world that their sinful ways are right & just. I have heard some say it is their constitutional right to marry who they want.
I think of those who wrote the constitution. They must be rolling over in their graves. They did not design the constitution to promote sinfulness.
Over half of my family lives in California and I am thankful they are the Christians who have voted against same sex marriage. But it saddens me how so many of the people of California have forsaken God.
These fires remind me of Sodom & Gomorrah. Genesis is very clear that the sin of Sodom, homosexuality, brought on the destruction of the city. The Lord let fire and brimstone rain down on the city, all of it inhabitants, save Lot and his two daughters, were destroyed. I can’t help to think God has allowed these fires to wake or even warn the people of California to turn from their sinful ways.
Please be praying for those in California. Pray God will open their eyes to their wicked ways. Pray they will renounce their sinful ways & flesh and set their faces Heavenward. Pray for the Christians of California to not be complacent but to stand up for Godliness, to endure persecution for what is right & true.

Hannah & Cousin Tanner in the bath!
Hannah & Abby playing with fish!
It was a lot of fun.
While in Tennessee we visited a pumpkin patch farm...
We went to the zoo...
We did some shopping...
We played at playgrounds...
We mostly just played all day long...
Then Hannah & Kristi took at 7.5 hour drive to Florida to visit Jeremy's parents. The drive was really good. No crying at all!! Hannah slept most of the trip and other times we sang songs, played peek-a-boo and she watched videos. It was a lot of fun.
In Florida Kristi went fishing (fish pictured above)
Got beat up by her cousin Tanner...
We are glad to be home but we do miss our friends & family along with the sunshine! It has rained every single day since we got home :(
