...and for the way that you love the Lord, Ace and me. 5 years brings a lot of ups and downs but I would only ever want to experience them with you. I love you.

Jonathan's just jealous! Oh well, I still have two blank shelves for my favorite photos of him.

One of Ace's favorites places to play is in his kitchen cabinets. Originally I put the tupperware in there but everything in that cabinet gets thrown on and dragged across the floor and is now un-useable. So now it's all just Ace's.

This weekend we had the entire family in Houston: Honey, Sashi, Aunt Leah & Uncle Allen, Brookelyn, Braedyn, Gabby and Pops! The Gilliams came in for Christmas at Granny's and the Evans came in because Aubrey was having her tonsils out. Coveniently, our church was having baby dedication so we decided better late than never to get Ace dedicated. Ace is OBSESSED with the Hallmark singing snowmen that Gabby gave us a few years ago. He calls them "Noah." Here he is sitting on the stairs. He is saying "cheese" for the camera.
Here is Tata in heaven! I love my "Bookend" and "Baedyn."
Here is some video of Ace asking for me play the snowmen for the millionth time. He says "MO-EY" when he wants more.

I LOVE the Bachelor (much to Jonathan's dismay) and am MORE excited than EVER that it's Jason! January...come on already.
I'm a little weary that they are going to involve his son...so hopefully they will do all in good taste and protect that little boy. I will be watching am sure to have an opinion. Yippee...as if I needed any more TRASH to watch.

After the snow, I didn't have the heart to put Ace upstairs in his play-yard so we played with Hula.
Ace found a spot in the laundry basket to watch tv.

Yesterday, about 3:45, I looked out the front door and thought I was going crazy...it was SNOWING! My angel was sleeping but I woke him up from his nap and slapped on his shoes, mittens and his winter jacket and we outside.
It is the second time it's snowed since Ace was born. The first was in Waco the second day we were home from the hospital but, of course, he'd never remember that so it was the first time he'd seen snow.
I bought a $5 Santa from Walmart because I just knew Ace would love it. I was right. He always calls Santa "Noah" but he can say Santa too.
If we could bottle cuteness and sell it, we'd be millionaires!

With our Daddy working long hours, Honey and Sashi in Thailand and Gabby and Pops travelling the midwest, we haven't been up to much of anything lately. (That's my excuse for not posting.) So here are just a few videos and photos of Ace being Ace.
Ace was saying "3...2...1...go" and pushing on Hula's hiny. By the time I grabbed the camera he was just saying "3...2...3...2..." and then "weeeeeeeeeeee."
Sheer delight and mischief.
Ace has learned to say "Hello" and it's the sweetest little voice so I was trying to get it on camera, that's why I keep telling him to say "hello." Keep in mind that we have removed the couches and rugs so Jonathan could seal the floor, Ace was loving the echo and Jonathan was TRYING to sleep.
We love our Acey.

AH! I have wanted to update the blog for so long and run out of time every day. I get so excited to see that friends have updated theirs while not returning the excitement. I've got to get my latest photos downloaded...but first...I must ask: Who invented Christmas cards???? I LOVE them. I love creating them, I love receiving them but trying to get these things to print perfectly is like chasing my TAIL.
I know, "Kelly, use Shutterfly or one of the million easy applications online." I HEAR ya but I waited too late and have a cool program on my computer (not so cool at this moment). All so that friends and family can pin it amongst the other cards from loved ones among whom we are lucky to be counted. No one will know how many times I printed it, whether the photo is milimeters off-center, or if the font looked better in white.
AH! Let me stop...I just achieved the perfect print. Be excited friends and family. The cards are on their way. Life just got a little better. I will post pictures of why you really visit this blog tonight or tomorrow.

Poor Ace has had no fun lately. So here's an update on a whole lot of nothing...
He got sick last week and came down with a really congested cough. We went to the doctor on Saturday morning but the LIGHTS WENT OUT while we were there so the doctor had to do some old-fashioned diagnosis. We came home with two prescriptions which he is actually slurping up and asking for MORE!

Yesterday, Jonathan got a call during church (we have to keep our cell phones on in case the nursery contacts us about Ace) from his company who happened to have two tickets on the 50 yard line at the Texans' game!!! What a no brainer.

Ace is into everything animals and is constantly making animal noises at home, in the car, watching tv, in the bath...This is his favorite book (thanks Gabby and Pops) and here's two minutes of him reading it. The "bye, bye" at the end is just too sweet for words.

I've always watched Oprah with a guarded mind, knowing that she doesn't completely believe the same things that I do. I think she's intelligent and powerful and had great taste in favorite things. I can appreciate, love and watchpeople even when they don't believe what I do. Today...no more Oprah for me.
When I hear her talk about our president-to-be and say that he's a source of hope and a spiritual figure, that his campaign was a spiritual movement and things like that...well, it is my humble opinion that those things can only be ascribed to the Lord. I think Billy Graham is a spiritual guy and he gives hope...but his spirit belongs to Jesus who is the source of his hope and he would never let you say that he is anything in his own power.
Oh Oprah. Fare the well. I'll still eat your favorite Greenburg turkey for Thanksgiving but not while watching your show.

This is how trick-or-treating SHOULD be done.
We gave away most of his candy to other trick-or-treaters but he did get a package of M&Ms and a Dum Dum on Halloween. What a fun night!

We also got some Fall photos taken of Ace while we were having his Halloween photos taken.
The story of these photos is an awful one. The first go around, I was so sick that we had to leave before Ace could get his photo taken. I barely made it to the parking garage before losing my lunch. He spent the night at Aunt Barby's and we went again the next day...this time without the sickness. He screamed and kicked the entire time we were putting his costume on and we barely got any photos without puffy eyes and tears. Luckily, someone had left a pumpkin which was the ONLY thing that made Ace smile.
