Recently, Adam took a youth pastor position at a church 10 minutes away called Immanuel Church of the Nazarene. This doesn't mean that we are leaving GBS, it's just a good ministry opportunity for while we are here. Tonight was his first night to actually do the youth service. Unfortunately, Aubrey has been sick since Thursday morning, and we have been nowhere except Children's Hospital ER. That being said, she is much improved tonight, but not completely back to our little Aubrey quite yet. When Adam arrived at church this morning he heard Pastor Meredith Moser announce that there would be a time of welcoming our family and fellowship and getting to know one another after church tonight. Adam knew the possibilities of Aubrey and me being there tonight were slim but they went ahead with the fellowship anyway. A few people brought adorable gifts for our baby and the church SS Superintendent and her husband brought a nice gift for Aubrey. I would have given anything to be a fly on the wall to see Adam opening these baby gifts all alone! Haha!!!
Loved how my friend titled the gift list - "baby sprinkle!" Since it wasn't technically a baby shower, I guess this is most fitting! :) Below, is a picture of the loot!

38 weeks with Aubrey
I was 38 weeks this past Wednesday. Time is flying by this time around. I guess that's what happens when you have a 2 year old to occupy all of your time! :) It's been quite the adventure with having Aubrey already. She loves to talk to the baby, pat my belly, etc. I have been so blessed and fortunate to have had a complication and sickness free pregnancy again this time. I have the normal aches and pains that are associated with the 9th month, but certainly am blessed. Looking forward to meeting our next little bundle in just a little bit of time!
If you don't know the Profitt family, one thing they love to do is play games!! Aubrey is no exception. Here, she and Grandma are playing Uno (at least of sorts!!).We were thrilled to be able to go with Mom and Dad to see Grandma Ballard - Ron's mom. She is staying at her home in KY and one of Ron's sister's is staying with her. We were just there for about 24 hours, but it was certainly good to see her and some of the rest of the family again.
A happy little gal!
Adam put this together the night before and we put a blanket over it so she could play with it immediately. She loves her new laundry/iron set!
Christmas was different for us this year. With Aubrey being a year older than last year she was so much more in to it! It was fun and we were thrilled with being able to give things to her.
It was nice to be home for Christmas this year. Adam's parents were in the states for a couple of weeks and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our time with them. Aubrey didn't take any time warming up. She ran and practically jumped in mom's arms when we saw them at the airport for the first time! She was thrilled! Thankful for every time we can spend together as family.
This year, we got together for gift-opening on Christmas Eve evening and had various taco dips to eat. Then, for Christmas Day, we headed over to Aaron and Lisa's house for a lunch which was made by the guys. They did quite a good job!! Adam even did the dishes that were left in the sink after we got home!! :)
