A Great Night!

Last week we made it over to the Quast's house for a great night of pizza and salad. Jerry and Ben had to go to Basketball practice so they had to head out early. Before they left Jerry showed us the school project Jake (and Jerry) have been working on. Building Noah's Arc! Did you know it wasn't an actual boat? This is what it looked like!

Gemma, Carson, Gabe, Audrey and Jake.

Gift time.

A Blessed Christmas!

Did you know that the chopping down of the Christmas tree represents the death of Christ and putting it back up again represents the resurrection of Christ?
Did you know that the wreaths we hang are never ending circles that represents eternity?
Candy canes were made to look like shepherd hooks and the colors red; Jesus' blood, white; purity.
The gifts, represents the 3 gifts the wise men brought for Jesus.
The lights represent the light of the world, Jesus Christ.
So when you are running around trying to get the "perfect gift", stop yourself, take a deep breath and remember we have been given the perfect gift. Jesus Christ was given to us to remove all of our sins.

Merry Christmas everyone!!

Raul. He is all ready for Christmas too!

Trever, Cameron, Chris and Garin

My Brother-in-law, Chris just emailed this to me. I love it! The last time I remember seeing all of them together in a picture is either from our wedding, or maybe even before that. So at least 9 years old!

Don't they look great?! Love it!

Celebrating Carson!

11.30.11 Grandma took us to lunch at Taco Bell for Carson's birthday.

12.1.11 I blew up a bunch of balloon's for Carson to play with for the day. He and Gabe are loving them! He also had a gift from Pat and Trev and I to open. He was very excited!

We had Carson's first birthday celebration on Sunday night, his birthday today, and will be having more celebrations next week with friends and the Coster's.

Thank you friends and family for the wonderful love, gifts, memories, and time spent on Carson (and myself too!). We love you very much!
