Happy Anniversary!

Five years ago today, we got to witness a beautiful, God-honoring ceremony uniting our oldest son to the wonderful woman God had designed for him.  So thankful for both of them and the exciting ways God is growing their marriage, their family and their ministry.

Happy Anniversary, Drew and Elizabeth!!!
We love you!!

Snow Day!

We had a beautiful snowfall on Tuesday afternoon and all through the night..... 
the kind that piles up on the branches and makes the world a winter wonderland.
 The kids were out of school so of course we had to take advantage of what I hope is the last significant snow!
 Two years ago, Uncle Brian gave the boys a snowman kit and this is the first time we've had enough snow to make a great snowman!
Sadly, due to some very poor choices, Lucas spent most of his time outside right here....
but, he actually didn't seem to mind (which kind of defeats the whole choices/consequences thing but that's a different story!)
Ian was just happy to drive his power chair up and down the driveway.  While we were busy with the snowman, we heard him squeal with delight and he was in the middle of the road!  Had to have a chat about boundaries, which is something new for all of us!  I've never had to worry about Ian getting in the road.  :-)

 The infectious smile....
 He did, however, want to be moved so he could watch the sledding and we piled up snow so he could play in it.  I still couldn't get him to agree to get on the sled with me.
 Jeremy, sledding down the hill....
 This kid loves to pose!
Not such a great picture due to taking it through the window but I have this thing about cardinals in the winter, especially against the snow.  They brighten our world and are so beautiful!
