Noah would cheer them on and he did sparklers too! :) He was very wary of them, but he did hold it. I think Mama was as nervous as Noah. Jeremiah loved being outside! Celeste had these poppers things that you throw on the ground and she threw some of them down close to him and he loved the noise :)
Both babies were all smiles early in the evening but as I said above they both rang in the new year asleep! I so love to watch them sleep! :) and Smile! :)
New Year's Day was fun! We had our traditional black eye peas and I cooked them with some of the Logan Farms ham that my friend Pam gave me as a Christmas Gift! We have gotten ALOT of meals off that 1 delicious spiral ham! :) What a thoughtful and yummy gift, and having looked up the nutrition information. It is not too bad in moderation :) I did a little New Year's Photo Shoot with them in the new shirts they got from our friends Dianne and Leanna gave them for Christmas! :) TOO CUTE! :)
This week we started back to therapy. We go to our private therapy on Monday Mornings and on Friday Mornings the school sends out several therapy folks to see both boys. Here are some shots from this Friday, the first ones of the new year! :) We are so blessed by these wonderful people from the school! God has really got us with awesome folks both private and school that just poor into these babies!
I was looking back at some of the pictures of 2011. I tried hard this year to get some family pictures more and more. It was hard to get us all because No one really to take the picture if Celeste is in it and even when she is not sometimes the pics are more like outakes! LOL and at times it feels like nobody wants there picture made, but we did have a few done this year so I made this collage! :)
And I made this because it kinda symbolizes me heading into 2012. I have really felt the Lord is showing me that If I do not do something about my health and weight I am going to die. Super Morbid Obesity kills people. That is where I am now. I am trying to make changes and priorities to try and do this. At times I am overwhelmed by the fact I need to loose 200 pounds! But I keep trying to cling to scripture that says that HE has made EVERYTHING beautiful in HIS time! EVEN ME! and I love the thing I found about the catterpillar becoming a butterfly! I am seeking as much support in as many ways as I can because I know it is going to take it, and its goin to take a long time and the changes need to be for life. Next year at this time, I will still be obese, but I pray I will be well on my way to loosing this 200 lbs and alot closer to not being obest anymore. and alot healthier!
To all my wonderful friends and followers, May 2012 be the best year ever for you and your family! Please keep in touch this year, comment, post on my fb (Tamijoysisemore@aol.com) email me at the same. Lets get to know each other better! :) I am so excited for 2012 for ME personally as its the year I will finally begin to live, and for our family as well as the boys grow and change, as my beautiful daughter continues on with her work, college and enjoying time with her boyfriend, and as we see what all God has in store for us this year!
I send you all kisses in the wind!
