Meet our gymnast :)

SK has been doing gymnastics this year and has totally loved it.  We got to go to her last class and watch and of course, take some pictures!

We are taking a break from the gym for the spring, but I am sure there will be more flipping at home to keep up what she has learned so far :)

SK is pretty fun these days.  We def. have our hard moments with her, but it is fun to watch her grow.  Yesterday we were getting ready for church and she had music on in her room and was dancing.  She said she was dancing the way the music told her to.  She said she was just letting it flow out :)  So so cute.

She can be quite difficult to wake in the mornings.  Girl would sleep in till at least 8 most mornings if we let her.  Some days she just has to get moving before then (for instance yesterday for church).  I go in her room and literally bounce her bed for 5 minutes before she really stirs.  Then we turn on music to get her moving :)  Most weekday mornings Michael is in charge of waking her, so I have fun on the weekends getting to go in her room and jump on her bed and act silly to get her going in the morning.

She is our little social butterfly.  She would be with friends 24/7 if we would let her.  She asks most days in the afternoon who is coming over for dinner.  Of course, her mom and dad are extroverts, so we like to be with friends too, so she is pretty used to being around friends a lot :)

If she could wear a skirt or dress everyday she would.

She loves movies.  We decided to have a fun family day on Sat. and went up to the dollar theater and saw Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.  We figured if Evie didn't make it through the whole thing it was only a $1 so not a huge loss.  It was a fun time for only $3!  I brought our own popcorn and water and we had so much fun watching the movie and Evie actually made it all the way through the movie.

I guess that is a little update about our eldest :)  We love SK to pieces and more than anything love seeing her grow into a child that loves the Lord and wants to honor him.  She fails daily, but I can see her heart gaining more and more understanding of how Jesus loves her and wants her to cling to him.  It is beautiful to watch.  I am thankful  :)

If I don't post again in the next couple of days, Merry Christmas, y'all!  May this week be full of joy and celebration as we celebrate the birthday of our King!
