I can't go by without talking about the crazy temperatures that we have been having here in Florida. In the 20 years that I have lived here, I have never seen it like this. Sure, we have freezing nights, frosty yards...but never 2 weeks worth of temps in the 50's for the highs. We have not seen the 60's in two weeks! The lowest temp that I know about at my house is 26 degrees. We had days where the sun didn't come out, and others where the skies were totally blue and you never would have guessed the temperature. And then this past Saturday, our high actually only hit 37 degrees (never seen that before here) and we had sleet and some had snow flakes. We actually had sleet all morning, and I have never seen that either here in Florida. Of course we have loved every minute of it...the Northerner in me will never die. But the plants are a bit wilted and I am tired of wearing the same warm clothes every day...not quite prepared in the wardrobe department. So, here are a few pictures. The icicles are from Matt, who had to run our water every night so our pipes wouldn't freeze. Enjoy!

This girl has been caught taking selfies on our cameras. We don't realize she has taken them until we look at our phones. She is so cute...and so preteen. As we are winding down the teen years with Bryn...we are in the homestretch, we see several more beckoning. Caleb will be 13 in one month and Esther is 11...and she is just bursting to be a teenager. She still has that softness of a little girl, but we keep on seeing glimmers in her life that are totally "TEEN." The entrance of selfies is a prime example. Love it. She has always been our quiet, keep to yourself girl...but all of a sudden she is becoming a social butterfly. Lots of friends...texting them on her tablet ( you should have seen my face when she sent me her first text)...small temper tantrums. It's in the mix..and Matt and I feel a little more prepared this time. We have some experience...we know what to expect...what to pay attention to and what to just ignore. By time we are done with this load of kid…
Who knew...16 years ago this journey would look like this? Sixteen years ago these kids weren't even alive...lol. Our oldest actually took the picture, as she was on her way to class at college. Now, truth be told...this picture took several times to take. No, we weren't waiting for any babies to smile...just for my youngest, yes my 10 year old, to get himself together. He still has a funky look on his face, but I will take it. Not everyone is happy all the time. And one day we will laugh at this picture and all of Judah's antics. These treasures have made this journey incredibly difficult, but it's been worth every step. I am so blessed to be their mom. And glad that I get to be their mom. Blessings on this next year!
