2011 Christmas Update - no video this year....

After one crazy year- We were lucky to get our Christmas cards to the post office before 2012! Though many of our family and friends will receive them in 2012! Oops - well maybe next year....

S- Sometimes it's more important to be in the moment than document it on facebook or blogspot. With a 1 yr old I am getting a post or two up on the blog when he goes to sleep.

K- Kuddos to Wyatt who has become a seasoned traveler flying to Wichita, KS in Dec 2010 and May 2011, a flight to Florida in March and then to Chicago in November! He also started his acting career as baby Jesus at the Christmas Eve service in 2010 and made an appearance this year with his mom and dad.
Baby Jesus - 2010

The telling of the "Night Before Christmas" - New Testament style, 2011

I- I have had fun with my new sewing machine making a few baby blankets, stockings, and pillowcases - on the few occasions that I have some free time - hence the limited on time blog posts.

L- Looking back on the past we thank God for the blessings he has bestowed upon us: our healthy child, our jobs ( Dr. Matt at Elizabethtown College and Rebekah is working full time as a mom. After 10 years of working full time she was able to work part time as a RN and moved from the Emergency Dept to the Medical Intermediate Care Unit), our health, our family, and our friends who are like family.

L- Looking to the future we thank God for his mercy, instruction, grace, and hope as He guides us in this next year.

E- Elated to have celebrated 10 years of marriage with an actual dinner date & Wyatt at home with a babysitter!

12/15/2001- 12/15/2011 and beyond!

N- Never a dull moment is had in this Skillen household with 2 cats, a dog, a momma, a daddy, and a very smart, silly, and sweet little boy!

At first Wyatt wasn't to sure about this event...

Then he got his "cool" look on.

P.S. his photo was taken BEFORE Christmas- I took the photo of the photos with my camera tonight- :)
