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)

Finally, Christmas Photos....

Some of you have mentioned how behind you were on posting Christmas photos (this was over a week ago). Well, not that it's a competition or anything, but I have you beat :)

I'm just now posting Christmas photos.

If you need a recap on our Christmas Eve, click HERE and HERE.

I have tried not to make this blog too much "about our kid only" (though I know I have done that on occasion), but upon looking through our Christmas photos, Luke was obviously the subject :)

So, enjoy the Luke photos....

A couple of things first....

1) We gave Luke a tricycle and a helmet for Christmas. If you know Luke, you know he likes hats -- A LOT! The helmet is a "hat." Therefore, it was hit in this house!

2) Luke has a ways to go on mastering the tricycle, but he'll get it -- we know. The weather needs to warm up a bit so we can go outside :)

3) We spent Christmas morning and afternoon at home. When we first got married, we established "that tradition." Christmas morning will hopefully always be relaxing and enjoyable with our family unit.

4) After Luke's nap in the afternoon, we headed to Marc's parents' house....about 15 minutes from here. We spent the evening with them.

**And, Robin -- the "truck" book was a HUGE hit with Luke (still is)....There's a photo in here with Luke reading it.

And yes, once we got back inside, Luke had to wear shorts....This would be because Marc nearly always wears shorts in the house -- even in the winter.

Luke likes to do everything just like Marc :)

And -- the evening at Marc's parents' house....Yep, the helmet and sunglasses went along.

I get such a kick out of him and his sunglasses... too cute!!!

Allen and Debby Graber said...

Will he wear his helmet to Sunday School??

Dave and Mary said...

You don't know me but I follow your blog...a FYI...the helmet does not fit correctly. Too small. I have my own little Luke and started following your blog when I saw your announcement with the name! Oh and our family has been into bike racing for 15 plus years!
