Then and Now.....

Or rather, now and then...

I'm not a big "Christmas Sweater" kinda gal. But when I got an e-mail special for $8.99, I couldn't resist. So, these sweaters just arrived in the mail late last week and they wore them to church on Sunday (yesterday).

Last night, as we were sitting in my parents den, I suddenly grabbed Gary and said, "Look! Almost exactly a year ago, in the hotel room....do you remember?" It took a moment, but his face lit up with a smile when he did remember!

Here they were last night, Dec 16th, 2007:



Tee Hee Hee! And here they were last year in the hotel room on Day 3 of our first visit trip,

They've changed places, but Logan is wearing Red both seasons and Austin is wearing Green!

I can't believe how much they've changed. I can't believe how completely they have filled my life! I just love them to pieces. I can't believe what a remarkable season of memories and gifts we're having this year. In the midst of pain and loss (which I'm just not quite ready to blog about yet), our spirits are constantly being lifted by the love and the spirit of life that these two little guys have brought to us all in just 5 short months since being home!

Loving the sweaters! They look so much the same but yet so much older. Does that make sense? They get cuter everytime I see new pictures of them! Merry Christmas!
