Whoo Hoo.

As Usual my In-Loves spoiled me for Christmas. I am so happy with my treasures that I have to take a few moments to brag about them!

Most of you know I started running this summer and had hopes of doing a 5k to get me going for a half marathon by next spring. I was doing really good for several months, lost weight, got motivated, did a fun run and then Avery got a virus and was out for several weeks and I couldn't get the free time to go run so I haven't been running in over a month now! I also had one serious shoes. The running shoes I had were from my sophomore year in HIGH SCHOOL. Yeah, been awhile since I bought sneakers and they were not the best for me in my runs. Well, I officially get to throw them away now!
These were under the tree for me!!! Adidas Women's Marathon 10 Running Shoes. Is it weird to say I am in love with a pair of running shoes?! I did a lot of research and it was between these and a pair of New Balance I liked and seemed most suited for. They are so comfortable and breath so much! I got them a half size up like I read so many reviews for and am so glad I got them in that size! I just can't believe my In-Loves knew what to get me (The power of Amazon wish lists I suppose..) I haven't tested them out yet but I am so eager too! Evan got a pair of PUMA running shoes too and he wants to start running all I need is a sitter or a running stroller for Avery.

I also got this amazing gadget I have yet to own in my kitchen!!!

Yup, a PINK food processor. I have so many recipes I haven't been able to use at home because I didn't have a food processor. Needless to say I may want to reopen my foodie blog now since I'll be in the kitchen even more than usual.

I also got these cool gifts from my loved ones, again I am one spoiled  loved woman.

So Needless to say I was on the GOOD list this year. :)

Evans Aunt and cousin fly in today and his uncle and other cousin are driving in later in the evening so we're getting a belated Christmas gift since we don't get to see them often. Plus, we're going to see our sweet friends the Richardsons who moved away to Pittsburgh so this week will be a wonderful one full of events.

On the Evan front- Pray for him as he continues to let Gods will be down. Things are already taking shape and I am praying to be patient and not get my hopes up too much. Whatever happens is meant to happen and I am proud of my husband regardless of the outcome and soon I'll be able to share some of the big changes taking shape for our family.

I hope you all were Blessed with wonderful traditions, family time and lots of food and laughter this Christmas, hard to believe the New year is less than a week away!

Blessings & Love-

Merry Christmas Eve!

We had our own Christmas this morning just the 3 of us and it was such a fun time. Avery got lots of leapfrog stuff (Daddy LOVES leapfrog) and books, my child loves books, it's quite ridiculous but I love it. She's starting to figure out letters and sound out words but I think the only reason she can read along with us on a few of her favorites is simply because we read them so much!

So many new little ones have arrived this week! Literally, we've had 4 friends have babies this week, 2 of which were today!! Makes me so happy. Lots of things happened this week that I want to share but for now with the holidays I don't feel like it's right. Please just pray for Evan and I. We're waiting for some news that could be good or bad and will have a huge impact on us for the coming new year. We've gotten a lot of family time this week though of just the 3 of us, sometimes forget how great that is.

Hope you have a blessed Christmas. Remember that a child was born, a son was given and our debts were paid forever.

Picture post to come soon.  Could this post be anymore random?!

In closing, I wish to share one of my favorite songs during this holiday season. I love it so much and just sing it out when I hear it. :)

Here With Us- Joy Williams

It's still a mystery to me
That the hands of God could be so small,
How tiny fingers reaching in the night
Were the very hands that measured the sky

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Heaven's love reaching down to save the world
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Son of God, Servant King,
You're here with us
You're here with us

It's still a mystery to me, oh,
How His infant eyes have seen the dawn of time
How His ears have heard an angel's symphony,
But still Mary had to rock her Savior to sleep

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Heaven's love reaching down to save the world
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Son of God, Servant King
Here with us
You're here with us
(Ohh, mmm, here with us)

Jesus the Christ, born in Bethlehem
A baby born to save, to save the souls of man

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Heaven's love reaching down to save the world
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Son of God, Servant King
You're here with us
You're here with us

Blessings and Lots of LOVE,
Brittnye & Co.

Happy 2nd Birthday Avery Claire.

Avery is officially 2 today!
Where has the time gone?! It is super hard to believe that my sweet sweet girl was being knitted in my womb and into my heart 2 years ago. It's hard to imagine what she looked like when she 1st smiled at me, said her first word, cut her first tooth and had no hair on her beautiful round head. I say all that and yet they are imprinted on my heart and mind forever.

How Blessed she has truly made me and her daddy...

6lbs. 5.9oz 18in. Long

 6 months old and taking life in like a sponge.

 December 19, 2009
1 Years Old Already!!

 1.5 going on 3!!

 Happy 2nd Birthday Cuppycake.

I'll be sure to post more updated pictures on my FB so be sure to check them out.

I asked Avery how old she was going to be yesterday and she sat for a minute looking at her fingers before smiling brightly and proclaiming with the right number of fingers up "I FOUR!", I corrected her by saying "You wish you were four, try again." in which she shrugged and said but would not show me with her fingers "I two, I two momma?" in which I just hugged her and said "yeah, you will be two but you know you'll always be my baby though, right?!" in response I got a tantrum with head shaking, tears, screeching, the works as she pouted that she was "TWO, I TWO!"

Yup, you are indeed a two year old.

To our sweet Avery Claire-
You were our miracle of life, an answered prayer and indeed a bright light in the dark. We couldn't be more thankful and humble to our Lord for giving us you. You complete us in so many ways. You teach us the beauty of innocence and the joy of pure, unselfish love. You make us laugh til we cry and cry til we laugh. You enrich all who know you and have a sweet spirit. I hope we never fail you in teaching you the ways of right and wrong and may you grow up to be a leader in Christ to your friends and an outstanding person of your own making.

She makes me giggle.

If I could get it to rotate, I would. Sorry.

She cracks me up, it's bad enough we watch the same 3 movies over the day when we're home but now she quotes them and sings the songs which has caused me to hide them and turn the TV off. However, Wall-E is an acception because mommy hasn't gotten tired of it (Yet.). This is her singing the intro to Wall-E in all her off key, garbled word glory.

I love her. :)

Time after Time

I should have made sure to say the previous list was not complete, I left a lot out but I think anyone who read my post gets the gist, WE'RE BUSY!

I must give myself some kudos, I somehow managed to mail out over 50 Christmas cards this week!!! That's like, 3 weeks earlier than I normally get around to doing it! I still have to order more which just amazes me and Evan since we never truly realized how blessed we were with such a LARGE number of family and dear, sweet friends all over the nation. I've enjoyed sending them out this year, brings joy to my heart to think of the family I'm sending it to and how much I love them for being in my life. Just another perk of this holiday season.

We have NYE plans in the works which I am excited about, I've never gone out to celebrate the New Year and this year looks to be a lot of fun. I think we'll just make it out anniversary outing too. Hard to believe we're about to celebrate 5 years of marriage! I feel old saying that for some odd reason but it just doesn't seem like it's been 5 years.
April 2005- Engagement Shot

October 2010
The Old Couple Shot HAHA

Guess that's all that's on my mind for now. I just felt like rambling.

Have a WONDERFUL Sunday.
Love & Blessings,
Britt & Co.
