Pre-Christmas Fun!

We've been having tons of fun here at the Jones house! This has been the least busy Christmas I have had since I've been married and I've loved it!

I wanted Trinity to make something to give to some of our friends and family. There isn't much she can do yet but I decided she could finger paint! I cut out cupcake letters with my Cricut machine and she painted the top part of them. She loved getting messy!

Yes. She has paint on (and in) her mouth! By the way, if you ever do a finger painting project with your child, make sure you have water! Steven had the water turned off because he was fixing one of our sinks while Trinity was finger painting so we had to wash up with baby wipes. Not a good idea!

These are the ornaments after they were finished. They didn't turn out as "Christmasy" as I had hoped but they are still cute!

Sunday, the kids got to open gifts at church. Here they are all lined up!

This is Trinity with her gift.

On the third Sunday of every month, after Sunday school our church goes to the local nursing home. We usually sing and then our pastor preaches. This Sunday was a special Christmas service. So we sung Christmas songs. But Trinity, Kari and Malachi got to dress up and walk around the halls and meet the residents. They loved seeing the little kids dressed up as Mary, Joseph, and a little angel!

Isn't she the cutest angel ever?!

This is Mary, Joseph, and the little angel.

Aren't they so cute!

Here is our tree stuffed with Christmas gifts! We will be ALL day long opening gifts! Which is fine by me! Thank you God for blessing our family.

Trinity Is 14 Months Old!

Trinity is now 14 months old! I cannot believe how fast time has gone by. She has changed so much in the past couple of months. It seems like she changes every few minutes! Here are some things about her at 14 months...

She has 3 teeth coming through which makes her having a total of 11 teeth! Wow!

She loves to eat chicken. It is her favorite food. (Besides sweets!)

She knows where her nose and belly is.

She can tell you what sounds a dog, cat, fish, and tiger make.

She says "ite" (bite) all day long!

She still sleeps through the night.

She has a little attitude!

She can shake her head no.

She says "Oh, Pee!" Which means oh, pretty!

She loves to blow kisses.

She is in size 12-18 month clothes.

She is in size 3 diapers.

This is Trinity at 14 months.

This is Trinity at 2 months.

I have a story to share about Trinity.

Trinity has been on this throwing things away kick. Which is fine, when it is something that actually needs thrown away. I just got a new sewing/embroidery machine. I also just ordered around $50 worth of embroidery thread for it. I haven't had much time to use it so I just put the box of thread on top of my machine and left it there. Well, last week I needed the thread and couldn't find it anywhere. I looked all over the place. I pretty much tore the house apart looking for it but it was no where to be found. I even looked in our storage building and it wasn't there. After spending all day looking for it and wondering where it could be, I finally decided to look out in the place we put our trash bags until the garbage people come and get it. Well, in the second bag I picked up, there it was. I was so excited to find it but also frustrated to know that Trinity threw it away. I guess I'll have to go through the trash before I take it out now.

Trinity is at such a fun age! I can't wait to see what she learns next!

Prayer Request

Updated to say that everyone is doing fine! Thank you all for praying!

I have a prayer request for all you my friends. My friend Ashlee text messaged me tonight wanting Steven and me to pray for her because her throat has hurt her for 3 days and she said that the pain is moving down into her neck. She can't eat because of this. She said that Matthew and Chris were getting ready to pray for her. She has blisters all in her throat. It sounds to me like she has strep throat. If that is the case, I believe it is contagious. Please pray that Matthew, Kari, and Malachi don't get it.

Also, please pray for Steven. He came home from work today sick. Trinity has been sick all week and I've been sick since Sunday. Trinity and I are both better, praise God! But please pray that Steven will be healed.

God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all that we could ask or think! That's just what He does! Period.

(This was posted from my iPod, so please over look any misspellings!)

Our Christmas Tree

Well guys, we finally got our Christmas tree up! Last week we finally had the time to put it up. I love our Christmas tree. I think it is so pretty! I was a little (a lot) worried about Trinity messing with it but she has been great! She likes to look at it, but she doesn't touch it! We haven't had a problem with her and I am so glad!

This year I put a tree up in Trinity's room for her.
She loves it. I decorated it in all pink! I like
her tree better than mine!

Playing In The Snow

We had our first "big" snow of the year over the weekend. I was so excited to let Trinity play in the snow. She actually liked it! I had her so bundled up that she couldn't move though. Ha! She looks like a little Eskimo!

This was Trinity's first big snow last year. Look how little she was!

This is us with the first big snow this year.
I'm really hoping that we have many big snows this year!
