Proud Daddy

It makes me a very proud papa when I hear my daughter in her room after putting her in bed praying to God.  She was saying "God, thank you for this day" and then i heard her say "God, please bless this offering".  So I am sure she picks some of that up from church.  :)

She is very good about wanting to pray before we eat (not letting us eat until we do) and we always pray before bedtime.  She is growing up so fast.  We have so much to be thankful for and I am glad that we are teaching her early that what we have isn't from anything we do but we always need to thank God for it. 

On another note she went into our guest bedroom (that she calls "Steven's Room" ) and was playing.  She comes in to my room and said "Daddy, its Christmas!"  She gets me into the room and tells me she turned the radio on and its Christmas!  Sure enough.  It was playing Christmas music after she turned the radio on and she was very excited to hear it.

Our daughter has been through a phase where she pushes our patience.  But its times like this when its all worth it and the slate is wiped clean.

Baby Progress

Kristen has been feeling the baby move a lot.  Every time I put my hand on her belly to try and feel the baby I never do.  I have only felt the movement a few times.  Seems to be very stubborn already.  Weeee!!

We purchased our new family vehicle yesterday.  We went with the 2011 Toyota Sienna.  It is a fantastic vehicle and we are so blessed to be able to get this van.  Chloe loves it and (as sad as it is to admit) I love driving it.  I am sure the novelty will wear off but for now I am so happy to have it.

A New Smith!

It has been a long time since I have posted. Our lives are crazy but I figured it was time to announce to the people that still keep an eye on the blog that we are having another baby! We are due at the beginning of March 2011. Kristen asked me to post the video we got from our sonogram. We aren't finding out the gender until our bundle of joy shows us him/her self.

I hope to post more updates to keep everybody a bit more informed of the goings on in our lives. We are in the process of getting a minivan. We sold my car a couple months ago and have been looking around to find the right van. We were pretty determined the choice was between a Honda Odyssey and a Toyota Sienna since those were the two best rated vans. We decided on the 2011 Toyota Sienna SE. We both really like it a lot.

Till next time. Please comment or send IM if you have anything you would like to see for next time.
