11/3 - Girl's weekend for me - beautiful location and amazing friends!
12/7 - one final birthday celebration - we went to a bouncy house in Springfield with Josiah's best school friend. They had a blast!
The evening of 12/7 we left to go to my parent's house for our first Christmas! We had a great time seeing everyone and getting to relax and hang out.
After coming home from Christmas with my side of the family, I downloaded pictures from the camera to the computer (the same way I always have for the last 5 years), and then deleted them from the camera. Problem was, they didn't all download. It was strange - some in the middle of the sequence got left out. So I lost about 200 photos - Josiah's birthday and Christmas pictures. But then my amazing husband came home and was able to do a restore using a program he found online and retrieve the deleted images from the SD card. He is my hero!!! Seriously, what would I do without that guy?
The last month has flown by, but we've had so much fun and enjoyed celebrating Josiah's birthday, as well as beginning to celebrate Jesus' birthday! Merry early Christmas!
