In Awe

Our neighborhood boasts the most beautiful scene every fall.
It nearly takes my breath away that we get to live here and enjoy it.
Little man likes taking his tools on our walks.

Secret is out

Its true.
Abram is outnumbered, but full of excitement!

Last night we opened a dvd that was unseen by any of us, including Jeff & myself.
We sat down with my parents, Jeff's mom, and the kids and watched to reveal whether mommy had a boy or girl in her tummy.

It was really neat to share that with everyone.  God's timing with sweet news is always the best timing.  We all needed this reminder of life and its renewal.  As you can see from the picture, everyone really is excited to have another sister.  Looking forward to what the new year will bring!

Today we lost my father is law after a tragic accident,  He was a man beyond compare.  Mike was someone I turned to for advice, directions, support, laughs, positive attitude, and so much more.  He helped raise my husband to the be loving, smart individual he is today.  Words I would use to describe him... classy, positive, loving, kind, and thoughtful.

This picture was taken just hours before his accident.  I am so thankful to have hugged him and said goodbye & I love you before he left that am.  

There is such a feeling of joy that has come through this deeply sad time.  We have been overwhelmed with love, prayers, funny stories, food, and gifts in rememberance of this great man.
