Every year we bundle up and head to march for life. It is so exciting to be a part of something at the Capitol that is pro-life. It is also exciting to see how God has used this in the boys' hearts each year. Lukas even waved a sign that said "stop abortion now".
We have the most wonderful cousins in the world. I am not joking. They even took the boys out for a little fresh air. Tolmie State Park is so close.
We had to go do something outside after so many rainy days. Sollie ran the entire way.
These pictures are not amazing, but we sure love them. I thought I would let you see some of the beatiful scenery we take for granted every day. This pic of the mountain is on the way home from church. I love just looking out our home on either side . . .we are so blessed.
Ok, so still trying to catch up a little. This was Dec. 12th--our 11th anniversary. We were treated to our annual outing with Connie and Eddie. I must say we look forward to it starting the next day. Onion rings, shakes, you can see the pie, all you can eat fries . . .usually about 4 diet cokes for me . . . .well, needless to say we are all happy. (And enough left overs for a meal the next day). Zayin (he can pack it down) even came to me after a shake, lots of yummy food, then dessert and wispered, "mommy, I can't even eat any more". It was Anne and Rebeca's first meal out and wow, it made for a great start. They just kept laughing. Connie and Eddie, Thanks again for such a treat.
God has given us wonderful friends. Connie and Eddie have spoiled us since the day we have met them. The boys as you can imagine think they are just about the best "neighbors" a friend could ever have. "Why don't we visit them more?" "We could just get on a plane and go see them." They are just so kind and we love you dearly. We had a fabulous outing in December and they found out the boys didn't have a wii. Well, now the boys have new best friends. Christmas evening had one more big suprise . . .and it was the highlight as you can see in their faces. Thank you Connie and Eddie. We think of you so often.
Christmas morning didn't exactly go as planned. The last years we have snuggled in our bed and read the Word--getting focused for the wonderful day ahead. I like having a plan ya know. But this year mom had a migraine. But as each day passes we see how God's ways are always best and perfect. Our sweet friends Anne and Rebeca had suprised the boys with presents and they were so happy. It was a celebration for sure . . .and just beginning.
