So much to say...

Well, we decided to start blogging, because we have loved following all of our friends lives and we thought it would be fun for everyone to see what's goes on at the Ward house!

The newest news in our lives is that we have relocated ourselves to the Alma area. Matt's job requires him to be in Northwest Arkansas a few days a week and Fort Smith a few days a week. It just so happens that he is in Fort Smith much more than Fayetteville so after a long amount of prayer and thinking, we felt God was moving us to the Alma area. It was a hard move at first, but as soon as we committed and decided to make the move, God changed our hearts and brought us so much excitment in the move!
We have been here for about 2 1/2 months and it feels like we have always been here. We are looking forward to raising Alyssa and Lord willing another child here too! It is a great place for us and we could not be happier!

We are so blessed to have such a wonderful little girl who brings so much JOY to our lives. God has given her a wonderful personality and a loving spirit! She is just such a blessing to us and we have enjoyed every minute of her life.

Christmas was so much fun this year. It was great to spend time with family and friends. It becomes so hectic at times, but then I just stop and thank God for family and friends to be able to get together with. I know like could be oh so much worse than having "too many" places to go. Oh how we forget!

Alyssa loved all her toys this year. She is pretty much into anything that makes sounds and sings. She dances and loves to sing and it is just the cutest thing ever! She loves to show you all the words she can say and will sit for ever pointing at things to name and looking around till she sees something else she can say! It is pretty funny! She is learning and growing up so fast!

We are leaving tomorrow for Dallas for the cotton bowl. It was one of our Christmas gifts from my mom and we are so looking forward to it! I can't wait to leave!

Well, for now...that is about all going on here. Oh but there is never a dull moment here so just be on the look out for more postings soon!
