These little munchkins are keeping me busy! Updating the blog has been the furthest thing from my mind. I'm going to upload a bunch of pictures (birthday and randoms) to enjoy. Please excuse what will likely be a long absence. It is Adam's final week of dental school, graduation next month and then a cross country move... Will let you know when/where we land.

The Merriest Christmas

Getting ready for Christmas was the BEST! I am so glad we spent every day in December celebrating the holiday because as predicted, the baby arrived a week early on Christmas morning.

Last preggo picture-3 days before delivery

Christmas Eve

He came!

We had just enough time to wake the kids and open stockings before heading to the hospital!

Merry Christmas to us!

The best Christmas gift of all!

It's the most WONDERFUL time of the year!

I wish we could have a tree in the living room year-round!

The kids playing "Polar Express"

We are in full fledged HOLIDAY mode at the Stephens house! With D-Day rapidly approaching, we have already decked the halls like possessed elves, baked our way into a few food comas and even found time to carve out a corner for baby. I can't really tell what the kids are more excited for: presents on Christmas or bringing home the "new" baby. I think they are mostly enjoying all the treats around the house (no smell reminds me more of Christmas than chex mix-so I have been whipping it up by the pounds)! We have been busy crafting our way through the advent calendar and can't believe how quickly the month is flying by! Early this month Adam received GREAT news when word came that he passed the second and final part of the National Dental Boards! Woo-hoo! He completed his FINAL final last week and now with just five months to go, he is preparing for the state licensure exams. I can hardly believe how far we've come and how close we are!
