In preparation for tonight's festivities, it is nap time at the Hunt house. (According to Wyatt, there is no sleep better than on Daddy's shoulder.)

Happy New Year y'all!!

2012: A Year Full of Blessings

Wow. The year is coming to a close. I cannot believe what amazing blessings 2012 has brought to our lives. This year we bought & house, enjoyed an awesome family vacation in Tybee, attended three beautiful family weddings (congrats Grant & Lauren, Jonathan & Madison, Logan & Chelsea), celebrated our two year anniversary, became an Uncle & an Aunt and most importantly, became the parents of a precious little boy named Wyatt Briggs. Such wonderful things.

This year we also celebrated the lives of Brandon's Pawpaw & my Grandaddy as they left us to enjoy eternity with our Lord. Although we miss them dearly, we know they continue to watch over us as we grow our little family.

Here are some pictures from our 2012. Wishing you & yours a BLESSED 2013!! Here is to new adventures, new opportunities & a new year!!

The "arteest"

Wyatt has learned to "finger paint" with one of my iPhone apps. I think he may give Jackson Pollock a run for his money.

I know the younger generations are always more technology equip but I never thought that my four month old son would surpass me so soon. Already he plays with his "Wyatt" apps, takes pictures of himself & today he even switched apps from the kiddie one to ESPN. Yep, that's my boy.

My guys

My favorite Friday nights consist of couch time with these two fellas. Of course, you can see why...

The boy goes bananas

Today we added another food to the boy's menu - bananas. Saying that he loves them may just be an understatement. After taking the spoon so he could feed himself (yes, he is just 4 months old) he decided he would lick the spilled drops of banana off his tray. I think we may have an eater ladies and gentlemen.

We wish you a Merry Christmas

"But the angel said to them, 'Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, The Lord." ~Luke 2:10-11

Merry Christmas from our little family to yours. As I sit and think of the amazing year we have had, I feel incredibly lucky. From our new home in April to the birth of our angel on earth in August, our jobs, our friends and our family we couldn't have asked for a better 2012. Of course, at Christmas we reflect on the wonderful gift God gave to us that blessed day in Bethlehem, but this year I think of the gifts he fills our lives with every day. We couldn't ask for more - health, happiness & His love.

Our families joined in our celebrating yesterday where we opened too many gifts, ate too much food and had too much fun (if that is even possible). The love that filled our home yesterday was heart warming. A huge thank you to all who joined us - we love each of you and wouldn't have imagined Christmas without you.

Of course, I'm a mom now, so I will close with too many pictures of our beautiful family. Again, Merry Christmas. I wish love, prosperity & happiness to each & every one of you!

Hunt Family Christmas

The Christmas fun continued today with the Hunt family. We enjoyed the company & the food. Mr Wyatt was spoiled beyond belief - got a horse, a sock monkey, a stacking toy, clothes, a puppy & this awesome ball/monkey thing that makes noise which he adores. Always a good time at the Indian village.

Wyatt enjoyed himself so much that he had to take an extra long nap with Memaw.

Wallace Family Christmas

'Tis the season to be jolly & full... Very full. Today we kicked off our season of joy with the Wallace family. We gathered at our new house this year to eat & be merry. We do both of those very well.

Of course the family is well on its way spoiling the boy. He got new shoes, new jeans, a new vest and a firetruck to ride on. Of course that is only the gifts we opened today. There are more to come.

Such an awesome time, sharing Christmas meals with family, hearing stories of Christmases from generations past & just watching four generations of Wallaces be together. See? I told you the season was about being full... Full of food, full of love, full of hope, full of rejoicing. And for the first time, full of spoiling the boy.

Merry Christmas!

Let's Eat!

The boy's adventures continue with his latest feat - beginning to eat solid foods. Being a good ol' southern gent from Georgia, we got his eating habits off to a home style start with peaches.

He likes them... I think. Or maybe he just likes to wear them.

{I hate to do this but I must... Please know that we are following our doctor's advice on when to start food. I do understand some parents have differing opinions & that's excellent. Together with our pediatrician we decided to give food a go - please honor our wishes as parents as we honor yours. Thanks!}

The boy is growing...

Cannot believe my sweet little man is 4 months old. Tell me it ain't so! He is so vibrantly full of life, always has a smile on his face (unless he is hungry) and has such a contagious curiosity for life.

This kid will move mountains.
