Happy 2009!

2008 was a year of great blessings, opportunities and new challenges for us. We are so thankful to have had the chance to travel, visit friends afar (well, so cal anyway), attend weddings, camp, go to Disneyland, see DMG Engineering continue to provide for us, watch our children discover new things each day (literally), adapt to living with and caring for our grandma, and celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary!

We are excited to see what the new year will bring and trust that "...He who has begun a good work in [us] will complete it..." (Phil 1:6)

We hope you have a happy, blessed 2009!

Why we don't buy artificial Christmas trees......

Can your artificial tree do this?

Yes, our neighbors did come out and check that this was a "controlled" burn. And yes, Dylan assured them that everything was under control because started the burn 1 foot up the tree to keep the flames from getting too big and he was holding a garden hose. Hmmm......

The Greats!

I think it is so cool that our children are able to grow up with 5 great-grandparents around- one of them even lives with us! What a blessing!
