Happy New Year!

Jeremy, Jensen and I celebrated early tonight with our friends at Lineberger's Steak House. The food was delicious, but the company was even better. The Summeys, Ramseys, Bradleys, and McSwains are always fun to celebrate with.

The girls got to hangout with cousins at Grammy and Pop's house and we are watching TV and going to bed shortly.

We had an exciting year. We sure didn't expect to have a new baby this year, but Jensen has been a blessing. The girls have grown up so much and have been a lot of fun. We have very exciting days and some very hard days, but we are so blessed. 2013 will definitely be our busiest year so far and we are looking forward to making new memories.

After opening a million new gifts, the girls played with this box forever. Haven asked Jeremy to cut it up and they used the cash register to make it a drive-thru.

I love how kids can forget all of the crazy stuff and just enjoy the simple things!

Christmas Eve/Day 2012

We started celebrating on Christmas Eve at my parent's house with my my sister's family. The kids were so excited to open presents.


Jovie loved this Santa hat and cried when she had to leave it at Grammy's house.

Jensen slept through the festivities.

Haven was so excited about her presents this year because she got a lot of the toys of the shows she watches on tv.

Christmas Eve night we were back at my parent's house for our extended family celebration.

The Bradham Men

Dana and Jensen

The 10 Bradham Grandchildren

Christmas morning we found presents from Santa.

Haven was concerned that she was the only one that got stocking stuffers. I guess maybe next year everybody will get some.

Jovie really enjoyed opening presents this year, but really only played with a few things.

Haven and I making pop bead creations.

We then traveled across town for lunch and presents with Jeremy's family. 

Aunt Lyndsey and Jensen

Once again, Jensen slept through the fun.

Along with a million other presents, the girls got Minnie Mouse Scooters.

Our family

Jensen was thrilled about his first Christmas.

My favorite gift from Jeremy, three rings with the kids' names on them.


Haven's favorite gift was the Pop Beads. She has organized them a million ways and made beautiful creations.

All of our loot. I only take pictures to show the grandparents how ridiculous this is and because I love looking back at pictures and remembering when I got special presents certain years growing up.

1 month old

Our big boy is already 1 month old. He had a great appointment today. He weighed 9 lbs. 10 oz and was 22.25 long. He is growing perfectly and getting so active.

Christmas Prep

We decorated for Christmas super early this year because we didn't know when Jensen would make his arrival. We have enjoyed our decorations and are sad to be putting them away today. Haven said she didn't want Christmas to be over. Neither do I!

Our Tree

Mantel with 5 stockings and nativity

Spindle Nativity in entry

Little tree that is only half lit. So we will be throwing this one out this year.

Jensen went to church for the first time last Sunday morning. He wore his drum shirt under his clothes in honor of his daddy.

We visited with Pop and Grammy for a little while after lunch. The kids were so cute in their Christmas colors.

Haven still enjoys holding her brother at least once a day.

Jovie spent some time with Jensen for the first time. She looks huge beside him.
