Al's family came over Christmas Eve to celebrate with us. We had a great time. Here's Baby Park enjoying some time at the keyboard. What a cutie.
Santa came to see us on the front of a Firetruck!! He was a few hours late but hey he was a busy guy that night. Mag's and Gracie even talked to him. That's a big accomplishment. He was giving out candy so that might have been a small incentive for them.
Jackson loved getting his gifts. He got some really good stuff. He can probably operate his new MP3 player better than I can mine I'm sure.
Here's my girls. I think this is what they wore outside to wait for Santa to come by. We had a great day with family, presents, friends and a great meal to finish it off.
Don't tell God how big your storm is, tell the storm how big your God is.
"No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” I Corinthians 2:9
How can your heart not break when you lose a loved one, or when a child suffers, or even when somebody's beloved pet gets hit by a car? But broken hearts are what give us strength and understanding and compassion. A heart never broken is pristine and sterile and will never know the joy of being imperfect.
Parents rejoice when their children turn out well; wise children become proud parents. So make your father happy! Make your mother proud! Proverbs 23

Hi! I hope you enjoy the adventures of my fascinating family of 5! My loving and amusing husband Alex is my best friend. I have 3 beautiful girlies! Sweet Clara Paige is our oldest who is 8. Maggie and Gracie are our adorable twins who are both 7 going on 17. It's no wonder I've nicknamed our family the Hicks Circus. Add our Dog Kelsey and we certainly have a 3 ring circus on our hands and I wouldn't have it any other way!
