Fotos for Friday......

Michael asked me this morning, if he could send his balloons to Grammy in heaven. He was so excited! Then a few minutes later, he asked me, when can we go there and bring them and Grammy back....He is so innocent.
This was the cake we had for Matthew's Jesus Party today. It was really sweet to hear all the kids singing Happy Birthday to Jesus! I am thankful and feel so blessed to be a part of a school that remembers the "reason for the season".... Matthew & his good friend Delaney

This is our Christmas card this year!
I wish everyone that takes the time to read my blog a very blessed & Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year in 2009!

You better watch out.....

On Saturday we went to see Santa, at his house in the "North Pole".....We decided to avoid the mall and make this one of our new traditions. It was freezing outside,so we enjoyed a cup of hot cocoa while we waited, it was so much fun! Matthew told Santa that he wants an Ipod and the Pokemon Ranger DS game. Meanwhile, Michael proceeded to change what he wanted from Santa, for the 3rd time. Ughhh it must be the "3's" :) For now, I am storing a Fisher Price Video Bike AND a Mickey Mouse Raceway. Just in case we change our mind again in the next 9 days......

He did it!

On Thursday, we had the honor of watching my "baby" brother David(32) graduate from the police academy. He completed a program that normally takes 2 years in 1/2 the time. That means he went for the last year to school, every Monday-Thursday and every other Saturday, all day! All of this while working FULL-TIME! He worked so hard to get to this day! Our whole family went to watch the ceremony as well as several of his friends. My Dad and David & I got him a Swiss Army Officers watch and had "You made it!", and Proverbs 3:5-7(chosen by our Dad) engraved on it. I also got him a copy of Christmas in Heaven and an angel ornament to remind him of our Mom. I love you "Bubby", and I am so proud of you, I know that Mom would be too!


Proverbs 3:5-7
5:Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6:In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
7:Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.

Song for Sunday.....

It has been crazy around here...Tis the season :)
Sooo I am posting a quick post about a new song that I think everyone should hear and buy! This song, Christmas in Heaven, is AMAZING! I bought the 5 pack of Cd's($20 with shipping!) and have kept one for my house, one for my car, and gave one to my brother & Dad. This is a song that will mean something to everyone. Obviously for me, it reminds me of my Mom, especially since this is my first Christmas without her....
I found Sarah Schieber's blog, through Jen's. They are both really special women, who have sadly lost their husbands in the last year. Sarah has an amazing voice and is a woman of amazing faith!
I hope everyone had a blessed weekend


I hope that I have time to catch you up more tomorrow :)

I gave this to my brother at his graduation from the Police Academy on Thursday night.....

Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!
