After Christmas

We had a great Christmas day(s) with our family. A bit crazy, but good. Haven is still at that age where too much activity kind of wears on her and she gets a bit cranky (a LOT cranky with no naps, ect.) but she enjoyed it all.
I took the tree down on Monday, and it felt good!! When it’s over, it’s over.:) I am ready for a new year, a new year of blessings, expectations, and I’m sure a few surprises. I am exepcting BIG things for our family.
Micah and I have already made our list of ‘goals’ for this next year, so that’s been good. We have told each other that we don’t want to call it ‘resolutions’ but goals that we intend on fulfilling by the coming year.
Other than that, I have been working and Haven has been coming to the office with her cousin Cambron as they both are not in school/Katherine’s this week, so it’s been interesting.:) They always have fun together and are two peas in a pod! They are sleeping now! Other than that, nothing much going on.
Keep believing,
Kara

Okay, this is fun. A bit scary since I am 50% of both!!

You Are 50% Boyish and 50% Girlish

You are pretty evenly split down the middle –
You do get along with both sexes.
You reject traditional gender roles. However, you don’t actively fight them.
You’re just you. You don’t try to be what people expect you to be.

A silly hat


This is one of my favorite pictures, thus far. It was taken a few months ago while Haven was showing me the hat she made at Ms. Katherine’s house. They had a party and made hats when she pooped in the potty.:) Of course, we are still working on that, but we are so thankful that Ms. Katherine is so creative and thoughtful to do that! She sure had fun making them with Kyle and Megan!
Almost ready for Christmas. I am having trouble trying to figure out what to make for Christmas lunch. My mom and dad are coming over for Christmas this year. It’s the first time ever that we haven’t had it at their house, so I am excited. If you guys can think of something yummy (and quick and easy) to make, please let me know. I am out of ideas….
Other than that, I am ready for Christmas and am excited to spend time with my family.

This weekend

We had a good time this weekend. It was quick, but good. We went to my family’s and Micah’s family’s Christmas Saturday and then left for Branson and Silver Dollar City. We went to SDC yesterday and saw all the Christmas lights and some little Christmas shows they had there. There were a TON of lights, I think they said there were over 4 million or something like that. We stayed until about 5 and then it got too cold!! A highlight of our day was when we saw a gentleman that worked there who was older and had a long white beard. We were standing around trying to fix her coat and he walked by and said ‘Hi sweetie’. She said hi back and then he walked on a bit. She said ‘Mommy, is that Jesus?’ I wanted to laugh and cry at the same time. Just the innocence of a 3 year old. She also said yesterday that daddy was her best friend and I wasn’t.:)Went to the outlet stores and got some good deals. Micah got a really nice work shirt that was 35.00 and we got it for 10.00 at the Gap. Haven and I didn’t find anything though….blah. Good weekend, ready for this week to be over.:) Snowed a little bit this morning, put me more into the Christmas spirit.
Thank you Lord for a new day in You and for all the things that You are going to show me.
Keep believing,
Kara

Ate me some good Bueno

Went to Bueno Taco Bueno today for lunch with my sister Kelley. Good stuff and cheap. My hubby probably wouldn’t like it, but it was great to me!
Another funny Haven saying she said last night out of the blue was ‘That’s a bad deal mommy’. I cracked up!!! We weren’t even talking, she just said it!
We are going to do the family Christmas this week for both sides of the familia. The Laney side tomorrow morning at 9 and then the Bonner side (my mommy’s side) tomorrow at 11 in the morning. Then we are off to Branson for Saturday evening and Sunday to hang out with my parents, do a little shopping, and go to Silver Dollar City to see the lights. Should be a fun time for all.
Take care and keep believing,

In the words of a Haven

Our sweet daughter Haven is the funniest girl. She has been saying things lately that just crack us up. A few of those things are:
‘Mommy, look at the pretty Christmas lights. God MADE those’.
‘I’ll wake up in just a minute mommy’.
As she looks at the smoke in the sky, coming from a building, she says ‘Mommy, I am waving at the oven over there’.
‘When I get as tall and big as you, I can go to ‘that’ school’ (meaning high school)
‘Guess what mom?! Did you know that you can pray when you are scared?’
I did my hair curly this morning and she noticed and said ‘Mommy, your hair is so cute’.
Micah and I were just commenting last night how she is just growing up and starting to say more and more things.
What fun!
Keep believing,
Kara
