Merry Christmas!

This was Cara last night before we left for our Christmas Eve service. Thanks for the 4 wheeler Luxtons...she likes it, can you tell. We had a great time at my parents house yesterday (and this weekend). This morning we woke up and Cara LOVED her kitchen. Then we went to Eric's parents house for gifts and lunch, and watching movies all day. We are still here now, waiting on Ronnie, Eric's best friend to come visit. Cara is already asleep, she was exhausted after this week!! Love to all. Remember Christ was born to die for our sins. God couldn't have sent a better gift.

This is just too cute to not post. We are very much focused on teaching Cara about Jesus' birth and the true meaning of Christmas day; that is our main goal and why we celebrate. It's hard to stay out of the secular traditions, but we believe we've found a nice balance. We don't really talk about Santa, we agree we'll pretend she gets gifts from him, until she asks us for real, then we won't lie, but I can't pass up these cutie patootie photo opportunities! :) I'll post this year and last year too! :)

Back from the dead (ok, just offline)

Hi! We are back online. Thanks to family and friends I've been able to check emails periodically, but didn't want to waste time doing posts/pictures, etc. We got our new Dell laptop today (we were told it wouldn't ship until tomorrow...go Dell). It's great, and fast. It's our first computer to buy as a married couple! We bought our old one a couple of months before we got married, so it lasted 6.5 years. Anyways, lots have happened recently. We've found out the gender of about 5 of our friends babies. My best friend, Trayce Hernandez, had her 2nd little girl on Thursday, Dec 6th at 12:31 am, after a whopping hour and a half of labor (I PRAY my next comes that fast!). There will be pictures on flickr shortly. Eric's Christmas concert was last night, and Cara actually stayed through it. She was VERY tired at the end, and fell asleep the second she was in the car, but she was pretty well behaved through it. The band kids just love her. I'm on month 8 of trying to get pregnant. I had my yearly exam with my OB/GYN yesterday, and she said that if I'm not pregnant by mid January, because of my surgery last year and losing the use of one of side of my tubes, that I'd have an HSG done. I've heard from a friend it is very painful, so let's pray I just get pregnant now! :)

Anyways, that's a brief update. Will do more later, I'm sure. Love to all and Merry Chrsitmas!
