"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

Got a little techno support from my BFF on how to upload videos from my new Flip! Here's some of the videos we took of Miss C on Christmas day! She's pretty cute in them! You will need to pause the music playlist at the bottom of this page to hear Caroline's "new toys" excitment!

The Leviners had a delightful Christmas! We celebrated Christmas with my family the weekend before Christmas! We ate lots of fabulous food and opened presents! We are so thankful for our gifts and C had a great time spending time with her grandparents, great grandmother, aunts, uncles, and cousins!  
So on Christmas morning, it was just the three of us! We enjoyed a yum breakfast made my Sam and we certainly enjoyed seeing what all Santa brought for Miss C! Her big toy item was the kitchen! She also got a cozy coupe, books, a doll baby, mini Mrs. Potato head (which seems to be her favorite), a Curious George Christmas movie, a first word puzzle cards, a mini doll baby, a Tickle Me Elmo, a cute monogrammed snowflake outfit, baby doll with stroller (I'll post stroller derby pics soon), chat and count leapfrog phone, alphabet discovery leapfrog, band in a drum, bowling set, bee pillow pet, blocks, and a lap writer (similar to magna doodle), and a very special note from Santa! I am sure I'm forgetting something!
For the afternoon we headed to Orangeburg to Sam's mother's where we enjoyed Christmas day with more family! We loved spending this special time of the year with our families!
I have some videos to share of C on Christmas morning, but I'm having technical difficulties!

Santa Claus came! Here's some of what he left!

I love books! I'm an avid reader myself and
I teach first grade! I hope Caroline
enjoys reading as much as her momma one day!

Playing with my new kitchen!

Frying some bacon like daddy!


Opening her Tickle Me Elmo!

She loves this mini baby doll...

and Mrs. Potato Head!


WOW mama! Daddy look!

Think she likes her new car!

This thing really sizzles!


Cookin' some more!

 Christmas Day at Granny's!
Anna, Samantha, Silas, Franklin, Christian, and Caroline!

All with our Uncle Lee!

Granny and Miss C!

Granddaddy, C, and Granny!

Waving Bye-Bye! See you later!

Toot toot beep beep look who's coming down our street!

White Day After Christmas!
C loved looking at the snow from the inside...

but didn't like being in it on the outside!

"Ice" "Ice", cold momma!

"Hold you" was all she wanted to say and she'd
run back to the driveway everytime we took her back
out on the lawn!

I absolutely love cards, especially Christmas cards!
I love sending Christmas cards and I love getting
Christmas cards!
I love displaying them on and around our mantle!
I love seeing pictures of families and hearing
about all the good things the Lord has blessed
them with over the past year! These are all
reminders of God's blessings in our lives!

Santa's note to Miss C!

 This year's ornaments!
I want our tree to be fun and to tell stories
about our family! Here's 2010's ornaments!

Merry Christmas!
I have so many many things to be thankful for this Christmas! Way too many to post here! I am especially thankful for a healthy family! I am grateful for being part of such a fun family who fill our lives with lots and lots of fun times, laughing moments, and special memories! I am very blessed to have loving friends! I am amazed this Christmas at how much Jesus loves each and everyone of us and yet we still can't imagine the depth of His love for His children! He's amazing and I am His child!
Here's some special moments that I am reflecting upon this Christmas with my wonderful family!

Miss Caroline!

Silly baby girl!

This girl loves puzzles! She's trying to do two
at the same time!

Like my reindeer shirt! It's all girlie!

I've got my Santa PJ's and my singing dog
so I'm good to go!


I'm reading the pictures of "Twas the Night Before Christmas"!

My very best "Cheez" smile!

I can be silly too!

Are you excited about Santa!

Ornaments are my favorite!

Mama said to smile big...

so I am!!!


Trying to put on her shoes all by her big girl self!



Thank you Ms. Leah for my stroller!

I am going to have a great 1st dental checkup soon!

Aw! You sure can open up your presents!

My girls! They just love me!



Love my family!

Here's all the girls!

My Aunt Melinda has a baby secret! (OOPS!)

I am the best present to my
mommy and daddy!

I love to "culor"!

Tending to my babies!

Pretty girl!

This is my favorite!

Here's daddy and me!

Stroller derby round 1!

More "culoring"...

and more! (The reason there's no presents under
our tree is because I will tear them open)!
My mommy has hid them elsewhere!

Silly girl!

Me with my baby doll friends!

Just passing through!

Merry Christmas everybody!

Finding my favorite ornament!

I am ready for church!
