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)

beautiful tree and sweet memories of tree cutting.
Years ago, before our last child was born, we went tree hunting w/my parents. It was chilly and fun. Our daughter wandered about the trees a bit. Wasn't long before I heard a song..."oh christmas tree, oh christmas tree..." She was 4yrs old and I didn't realize she even knew the song!
This is still a very cherished memory for me. Especially now that we are planning the wedding for that little song bird.

Wow! Let me grab my sunglases. LOL! That is so pretty. Bet Luke is lovin' the bright pretties on the tree.

If you don't have them already, you should find the blocks (or have Marc make them from wood scraps) that have all the different shapes and sizes for Luke to use along with his regular blocks... so he can start making towns and buildings and things. That would really get him goin' on those towers and other ideas! (I made/sawed my boys' blocks and other shapes myself when they were little, it was such fun. Sanded them well, painted and sealed to finish.)

Mmmmm, chili and cinnamon rolls. One of our favorite meals. I make both from scratch. Back when I was in junior high, this was a meal looked forward to by all the students in the school because it was sooooo yummy... and the rolls were twice as big as the bowls the chili was in, LOL!
