Fall-ing (skipping) Forward

Wow, it's been a LONG time since I've updated our blog! I'm ready to get back into the swing of blogging though. Here is our first family picture of the season. Come to think of it, I don't think we've had a recent picture of all 6 of us. This portrait taken at Dewey's Fall Festival last Friday night - but it is only a snapshot of the actual portrait as I don't have a scanner hooked up right now. It was our 3rd year and it was really fun - nice and warm this year - last year it was freezing.

Stay tuned as I begin to catch up a little bit with highlights from the year and move forward from here. We are on a very exciting path as a family and have many things to be thankful for. More soon!

Cool like that

Here is a fun picture of Spencer smiling! He is two months old now, getting very big and a happy baby to boot.

Twin Dino's

Spencer (8 weeks) with his buddy Emerson Brooks (4 weeks). We didn't even plan this and it's the 2nd time it has happened!


I snapped a picture of our last meeting.
& my favorite speaker ever: Dr. Lisalee Egbert!

Cold Day at the Park BRRRRR

Remember that Saturday after New Year's? Wow was it a cold one! But we braved the elements & took the new bike for a test drive.

Preston was saying: "Push me!" - the jeep is stationary

Here is where I was - far far away (standing in a little corner of sunlight)

This is how far I zoomed in!

Some Christmas Pictures

It seems that Santa enjoyed our cookies & milk!


Sleeping baby...

Stocking time!

Pastor read the Christmas Story to the children

The kids got a kick out of being up on stage.
This video is so cute, just the first 10 seconds or so. For the sake of your equillibrium, you might want to skip the rest...I didn't know it was still recording (new camera & all). But Nathan's Star Wars Legos have become quite an issue in the house with Preston always wanting them. He says, "MY DAR BADER!" So, mom got him some Star Wars legomen & here he is light saber fighting them & when Nathan asks, "Are those legos?" Preston is quick to reply, "Yes, they're mine!"
