Tis the season....

 .... to be too busy for blogging!  Just wanted to post a quick catch up on what's been happening with the Dixons.

Micah was an Indian in the Thanksgiving performance at the preschool he attends on Tuesday and Thursday morning.

We had a great Thanksgiving weekend in Kingston Springs.
The kids had fun taking their annual ride in the lift that dad so inconspicuously uses to put up his Christmas tree lights...

The boys learned that all who eat the Thanksgiving meal should contribute to the preparation of the Thanksgiving meal :).  

Some took it better than others.

Sophia got to love on her Ma.

Mom and Noah did the whole wishbone thing.  I think they actually ended up with the same length bone.  I didn't think that was possible...


Just because she's so stinkin cute!

Micah and Sophia's favorite new activity at Nana and Grandy's...walking to the river.

We had the extra treat of being able to spend some time with the Stites family on Saturday!

 Noah and AK :).

And now we are getting ready for Christmas!  
We had a fun morning putting up the tree with one of our favorite people in the world - Cole!  We had a yummy breakfast and the kids hung the ornaments.

We celebrated with our college students by having a great weekend of service and fun.  On Friday afternoon they split up to go and visit several widows in town and deliver fruit baskets to them.   After meeting up and eating dinner, they wrapped up gifts that they bought to bless a single mom and 3 kids who live in a house that sits right behind our lot in West Circle.  They finished it off by delivering the gifts to her house on Saturday morning and having a pancake breakfast at the Blue House.  We have the BEST college students!

And last, for now, Micah was very excited about Warm and Cozy day at Preschool.  They all wore their PJ's and had hot chocolate with "smarshmallows" AND whip cream!

Noah finished up a great soccer season and is now playing basketball.  He won his first game Saturday!

Duane closed out another great semester with our awesome college students and is now busy with things like planning Gulf Coast Getaway and planning for our home to be built.

Micah is doing his best to keep up with Noah, which often results in conflict.  He actually kicked a hole in a closet door with his bare foot yesterday.  But, in spite of some anger management issues, he is growing up to be an amazing little boy.  He loves to work!  Give him a job and he is happy.

Sophia is learning to hold her own with her big brothers.  She is so sweet and yet so strong.  I guess that's what it will take to survive around here.

I have been extremely busy with my Etsy business and my new adventure of photography.  It's been a great source of income to fund our adoption, so I am VERY thankful, but I will be glad to come up for air after Christmas!  

We FINALLY own land in West Circle! After a city council meeting tomorrow night it should be subdivided and ready to go!  We are so ready!

And finally, we are anxiously awaiting our referral which could come any day.  I find myself thinking and wondering about Selah more and more these days.  But for now we will just keep praying that she stays healthy and loved until we can get to her! Please join us in that prayer!
