Welcome....Here's a glimpse of our happenings!

The verses that have REALLY spoken to me (Sarah) lately....

"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." Matthew 7:24-25

Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. I Peter 5:8-9

From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. For in him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.' Acts 17:26-28

May the words of my mouth and the mediation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock, and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14

So be careful to do what the Lord your God has commanded you; do not turn aside to the right or to the left. Walk in all the way that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess. Deuteronomy 5:32-33

God, our God, will take care of the hidden things but the revealed things are our business. It's up to us and our children to attend to all the terms in this Revelation. Deuteronomy 29:29 (The Message)

About the Friesen's....

We are Marc, Sarah, Luke, and Kate Friesen. We were married June 5, 2004. We have one son, born July 21, 2008, named Luke Andrew -- now 4 years old. We also have a daughter named Kate Christine -- born June 6, 2012. Marc is working at Cessna as a Senior Accountant, and Sarah stays home full-time with Luke. Sarah also gets to work very part-time at home for Graber Backhoe -- an excavation company AND VERY part-time at our church. We LOVE being a part of Grace Community Church here in Newton, KS. We lead a Community Life Group of other wonderful couples. Marc thoroughly enjoys long-distance running and Taekwondo. Sarah thoroughly enjoys walking -- especially when the weather is nice to take Luke and/or out in the stroller. Thanks for reading our blog!

I feel as if I haven't posted a photo of Luke in awhile, and I'm sure some of my readers only read this blog for that reason :) (That's O.K., though).

Anyways, here's a photo of Luke from last week -- playing in his puppy pajamas -- we LOVE these pajamas. They are very cute on him, but I know we're biased.

Since Marc was off work today, we both took Luke to his 18-month well-baby check this morning. I'll post on that another day -- complete with updated Luke "stats."

Why do you think some of us visit only to see Luke? Just because he is so ADORABLE and always has that HUGE DARLING SMILE... well, then.... yep, you know, huh! LOL! LOVE those puppy pjs!!

Hmmmm, shake-and-bake... haven't had that in a while. Going to have to add that to my list!

hi Sarah :)

yep, those chicken fingers were probably the best i've ever had...seriously...

i don't know why i did the dip in the honey mustard...i thought it might make them a little tangy and take some of the salty taste from the French fried onions...

i used reguar french's honey mustard - in the squirtable container... i didn't measure...i just squirted some in a bowl...moved the raw chick. finger around in the mustard (it doesn't coat real well)...then to the egg bowl(1 egg, beaten), and then into the crushed French's fried onions... (i used the whole bigger can)
i had some left over FF onions, tho...just sprinkled them in with the green beans... :)

i can't wait to make them again... :) however, in all honesty, anything with those French fried onions has to be GOOD! :) i love those things! :)

let me know how they turn out for you... :) i'll be curious to hear what you think of them, too! :)

great pics of Luke, too... since i have a girl, i don't buy those cute puppy PJs, but we always want to... :) i wish they had them for little girls, too! :) :)

i had another ? for you, but i forget what it was... :) oh well...

have a good Tuesday! :)
