One blessed little girl...

This morning Abigail did very well for Christmas. She received many wonderful toys (kitchen set from Santa, kitchen accessories, doll house, dolls, puzzles, shape molding set), clothes, and books for Christmas from her family in Minnesota!! All the new things are keeping her very busy!!

Today has been very nice and peaceful Christmas at our new home. We began the day with wonderful yummy family breakfast. Then onto opening all the gifts, which took almost two hours for Abigail, she had so many. We also received very nice gifts!! But so much fun watching Christmas through your child's eyes.
We are very blessed!! Thank you to all our family and friends!! May God bless each and everyone of you!!

Oh Christmas Tree

It seems like years since we have put a big Christmas tree up, so I am loving it!! I love decorating and seeing all the Christmas decorations everyone does. This year since Ab's is old enough to start understanding we thought it would be the perfect time to start the tradition again. Next year we will be adding outside lights, etc...can't wait!!

90% of those gifts under the tree are for Abigail, hmmmm...can you say she is one blessed little girl!! I think it will take her a good hour or two to open all of them. She also has two other larger gifts, that don't fit under the tree. I can't wait till Christmas to watch her open all of them.

Also remember the reason for the season, CHRISTmas!!
Happy Holidays love the Woelpern's!!!

Home Sweet Home

We are all moved into our new home and loving it! So nice to have all this room, though I haven't figured out how to clean such a large home yet. Of course still doing some organizing, need to work on Aidan's room, and have a garage sale. Ryan is working on organizing his garage/man-cave! But for now, taking a few days to enjoy our new home and most important ~ Christmas time!!

Abigail loves her new room and her new big girl bed. She sleeps very well in it and loves to sit and read in her bed. I know I am a lucky mom!! I am so blessed to have such a happy girl!! Because of all the extra room we have in the house she goes to bed each night exhausted, there is so much room to run around now.

We put our Christmas tree up the other night and Abigail just loves the tree, when she goes by it she says ohhhh treeeee. Also Christmas gifts have started to arrive from our families in Minnesota and I have to say, someone is spoiled little girl and it isn't me this time. :)

Looking forward to having family and friends over to visit, so be sure to come soon, always welcome!! Here are a few pics of our new casa!! Front of house, Abigail's room, formal living room, and Aidan's future room, which we will be painting gray and accenting with blues and browns.

Thank you God for all the blessings in our lives. Thank you to the wonderful friends here in Bellville that have helped us during the move, words can't express that gratitude I feel (especially the Hoffman girls for cleaning & unpacking, Tracye for taking care of sweet Abigail, the boys that helped Ryan with moving, Michelle and her parents, and all the prayers and good thoughts from others!!). Thank you to all of our family and friends, having you as a part of our life is very wonderful! Let's not forget the most important part of Christmas, is the day Jesus was born to give us forgiveness and eternal life! Merry Christmas to each and everyone!!

December Update

Wednesday we found out we are having a boy!! We are very excited, Aidan William's expected date of arrival is April 12, 2011.

December is a crazy month for us, not only is it the holiday season, but we also sold our house or should I say traded houses with a friend and closing December 16th. I have been busy making moving preparations, packing, and all the fun things that go along with moving (ok not so fun things). I am so happy today I finished shopping for holiday gifts, so that is one big check mark off my mile long to do list. But we are so excited that we will be in a new home in time to celebrate Christmas!! Abigail is getting a new room and big girl bed!! Aidan will have his own room when he arrives, plus we will have room for our family and friends to stay at when they visit. Well actually they get there own separate room and bath detached from the house.

Over the weekend Abigail and I have been enjoying time with one of my besties Salinda. We went craft and Christmas shopping, checked out the holiday parade, and tonight watching Eclipse. Sure has been a few fun days of girl time!! Hubby was even home to catch the parade this year too!!

I realize it is only December 4th as I write this but it already feels like the month is flying by with all the things going on.

That is a quick update, now back to packing....
