Christmas Time

Christmas time. It means different things to different people. For us it means:

Happy smiles on Christmas morning

Lots of food!
Celebrating our son Cody's birthday
Fathers and daughters 
Friends  and family
A first Christmas!
43 people in a small area and having fun!
Cousins, brothers and sisters
New cousins
Extra kisses
Grandpas undivided attention
The new coat you wanted
This Christmas was wonderful!  Almost everyone that I love was in our home.  But we know the  reason we celebrate this day is because of the birth of Jesus Christ. He was born so we could live. Without Him we would not have life. We would not know the love of family and friends, good food, a child's first Christmas. We have because He gave.

I've got nothing!

The last couple of weeks I have had nothing to say on my blog, twitter or my facebook page. I find this very strange. I can't even think something up! I had come up with all these excuses. It's Christmas time and I have a lot to do. Working on Hug Away. Working at work! Talking care of my family. I realized that couldn't be the reason because except fo the holiday that is my life.
Maybe I am suffering burnout. I don't know. What I do know is I don't like it. During the day I can think of a lot of things I would like to share but when I get home and sit in front of my computer, nothing. I don't get it. Maybe God is wanting me to slow down and spend more time with Him. Something else I haven't been very good at lately. Hmm..I think I just figured out my problem! 
                         May we all remember the reason we celebrate this season, Jesus Christ. 
                                               Merry Christmas from my family to yours!

Baby J

The newest addition to the Bayer family! Baby J. He arrived in June. He loves his cute little pudgy toes. He can almost stick those precious tootsies in his mouth!

He loves to look around. He is a very curious little guy.

He loves playing with grandma!

He loves to make loud noises at the top of his lungs!

Remember I said he was curious? He will role all the way across the living room to get to the door so he can look out.

I am thankful for this precious little one. He is a blessing! I wanted to show him off :)
