Christmas Letter 2014

God is still working on our family,
Teaching us patience with our new puppy!
Big, chewing machine is 8 months old,
Once he's 2, we'll enjoy him- or so I'm told.
Well, we survived a few updates to our house,
And our 1st trip to Disney to see Mickey Mouse!
The kids are in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade.
Cahaba Heights has the coolest teachers God made!
After school we do too many activities;
Don't feel pressure to be good at something, please.
After tennis, soccer, Taekwondo, and ballet,
Gymnastics.... finally all home, whew....hooray!
A Dozen Dresses is still going strong,
Danced on stage with Vanilla Ice to his famous song!
Yes, hello again, Zoloft, my old friend!
I only thought our last breakup was the end!
Matt tried yoga and he did quite well,
He keeps his work accounts happy, best I can tell!
Thankful for marriage to my good-lookin' man,
We marvel at THE Father's most gracious plan!
"God wants your heart, not your performance," Julie said.
Jesus, please teach our hearts and not just our heads.
Our heads know the answers we learned as a kid,
BUT, Jesus it's all about what you (not I) did!!!

Merry, Merry Christmas 2014!

Love, Matt, Sara Ellen, Noah, Grady, and Polly

2013


2013


Hello from our box on Ossa Wintha Place,
Pausing to rhyme about our own rat race,
Oh deer! Noah (8) shot a spike, his first one!
In Taekwondo his road to black belt has begun!
Grady's (7) angry birds have taken over the living room,
Soccer, laughing, destroying pig castles, BOOM!
Would you believe Polly(5) started the big K?
Loves Hot Lava (frog), gymnastics, art, and ballet.
I want them to be good, I want them to excel,
Push, push, oh yeah, enjoy yourself as well.
See I'm trying to fit each in my “ideal box,”
Yet, no effort, no recipe I concoct
Will relieve my longing any quicker...
Oh, Jesus, please make my “ideal boxes” BIGGER*!
School days-my house is quiet, a new pressure found
No excuses, get it done, mommy chores abound!
Wow! A Dozen Dresses had it's tv debut
Still taking the old and making it new!
New neighbor friends and yoga- nomaste,
Breathing, trying, failing, crying, and pray.
My Matt, he's not just another handsome face,
His patience and forgiveness portrays such grace,
Learning of the freedom to disappoint each other,
Righteousness in Christ we slowly discover*,
Presents from any box will leave u wanting more...
This Christmas, I pray, you are filled with The Savior!

Merry Christmas and WARRRR EAGLLEEEE! 
The Allbritton Family
Matt, Sara Ellen, Noah, Grady, and Polly

**please note that the Lord is using our counselor Julie Sparkman greatly in these areas!
