Update on Our Family

I know, I know – it has been a while since I’ve posted anything – and I’m getting calls about when I’m going to post more – especially pictures of this precious boy!! I’ve now posted 2 sets of photos that can be found under our family photo section of our children – one is

All Gone

I have a cute short story to share – we’re sitting at the dinner table tonight and Noah toots and says “toot, toot”. A few seconds later you can see he’s trying to toot again. This time he fails, and he looks up at all of us and with all seriousness and a wave of

No Baby Yet

So we have passed Friday night, we’ve even passed Saturday night and it’s now Sunday morning! This baby is reminding us that it is in God’s timing – no matter how much we want to see’em now. Tomorrow is the due date, and I really keep thinking this baby is coming before the due date.

Thoughts on Thoughts

I know we are now past Christmas and on our way in the beginning of a new year, but I thought I would share this portion of an email from a dear friend of ours, Paul, who is from Uganda, now studying in London. As I read his letter of thoughts on Christmas from a

Firsts for Noah

Fun Time with Brother Scott

We’ve had a wonderful Christmas celebration week! My parents came in on the Friday before Christmas and then my brother, Scott came in on Sunday. We haven’t had a Christmas together as a whole family for 5 years. We spent time going to church and celebrating, playing games, relaxing, and also a trip up in

Formal Photos

Are they worth it? We have never actually taken Noah in for formal photo shots, so that should have been our first clue that it could be a challenge. Actually, the lady who took our photos for our wedding, needed some web redesign work, so we did a trade and she came to our house

Traditions for the Christmas Season

We are so excited to be celebrating the birth of our Savior once again! This year, as Noah is already 19 months old, I’ve been thinking of traditions that I would like to have for our family. One idea I recently came upon was the old traditional chain around the tree made out of construction
