December and Egg Nog

December is always a bit of crazy month. I have been busy trying to get my Christmas cards out lately because our family pictures finally came in. They all turned out so nice. Unfortunately, they are all such large files that they are not loading well into Blogger. So, you will just have to wait until you actually get a Christmas card from us!

Everyone is getting very excited for our trip to the States for Christmas. Joash enjoys taking a link off of the paper chain every day.

Joash is becoming quite the funny kid. Here are a few of my favorite recent quotes.

Wilbert (heading out the door to work on something at the farm):We will see how far I get.
Joash (to me): Why is daddy meeting us at Target?

Joash (when I got him up for the day yesterday): Last night I dreamed about eggnog! (Wilbert has introduced him to eggnog and he loves it!)

Another fun thing that we just did last night was reconnect with a friend of mine from Dordt who is getting ready to move his whole family to Indonesia to go into full-time, long term mission work. It was so neat to hear about their plan and their passion for spreading the gospel to those who have not hear yet.

Oh, Mataya just woke up from nap so this is all for now!

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
