A Moberly Christmas Morning

Christmas morning!

We had a wonderful holiday!  We went Christmas caroling on Christmas Eve.  Although I think next year I will reduce the number of houses that we carol at.  (  =  We didn't get home until about 8:30 p.m.  Once we got home,  the kids opened a present and then we sent them to bed.  I think James was asleep before the kids were!  Except preparing for a talk for Sacrament the next day, Christmas day was nice and relaxing.  When Gill and Maureen were here a couple of weeks ago, the girls prayed for a snow day and got one,.  So, I decided to ask Cardi to pray for a snow day so I wouldn't have to speak in church on Sunday.  Then I started feeling guilty about not setting a good example for the kids so I asked her to pray that I would do well on my talk.  The next day, church was cancelled...I guess the Lord figured the second request was next to impossible and decided to go with the first!  We hope you all had a WONDERFUL Christmas!!!

Meredith Turns One

     It's hard to believe but our sweet little Meredith turned one on Monday!  While she isn't walking yet, she has no trouble getting into everything!  We kept our celebration low key.  James did a wonderful job decorating the Christmas tree and ornament cake I made.  I wrapped little mini candy bars (one of the many treats our neighbors keep us stocked with) and placed them under the Christmas tree cake.  Meredith enjoyed eating the wrapping paper and the boys enjoyed playing with Meredith's presents.  Thank you to everyone who called  and sang "Happy Birthday" to her.  Her little face  lit up each time someone sang to her and  she had lots of fun dancing to all the different renditions of "Happy Birthday." 
    On Tuesday, Meredith had her one year check up and received 4 shots including her second flu vaccine.  John was terribly upset.  He didn't want Meredith to have to get shots.  Apparently he is the only one who can torture Meredith!  (  =  She is in the 50th percentile for weight and head circumference and 70 percentile for height!!!! 

Yum!  I love wrapping paper!

Our beautiful Christmas tree cake!
