December is an amazingly busy month for the West family. We are scurrying to finish up home school so that we may enjoy a winter break. We also celebrate 3 births!! The greatest and most extensive celebration is of Christ's birth, but we are also so very grateful for two blessed gifts that arrived in our family during this month. Our very first child, Marcus Elijah West (better known as Eli) was born December 12th! What a sweet Sunday evening indeed, the first day I tasted motherhood. This year he turned nine. He is growing up. BITTERSWEET! We celebrated together with family on his actual birthday. We also allowed him to celebrate with some time with friends, while us girls had an afternoon date. I baked him his requested cake. This year was a Star Wars theme, which is currently his "thing".
Truly blessed this sweet young man!
