Christmas 2009

Merry Christmas Everyone!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas this year. We have been very blessed to have two great families that love us and we love them! We got to spend the morning with the Carter's and the afternoon with the Parker's. Because of the snow, we missed out on our Aunt Billie and Uncle Elmer who live pretty far out. We missed all of their laughs because Aunt Billie is so funny! We also missed their daughter Sharon and her husband Alen becasue she is still in the hospital. Please continue to keep her in your prayers. We missed you guys!

In spite of the absences, we still had a pretty good time! Here are some photos from this years Christmas. Enjoy!

Baby Sitting Adventures. . .

Hello everyone!!

So last night, my sister had a Christmas Party to go to. . and so did mom. . . so for the first time ever I got to baby sit BOTH Kaitlyn and Averee. Usually I just hang out with Kaitlyn cause she's old enough to be my little buddy. Averee was always the baby and mom got to watch her. ;-) Although I am capable, I do not prefer diaper changes. ha ha ha. So finally it was my turn with both. Averee, who Kaitlyn calls "the monster" is going through her terrible two's. But despite all of that, we had a really fun time and didn't even have any problems! Besides the random "mine!!" and "sissy did it" being yelled. We tried playing dress up and taking pictures and here are the results!

Ashlie & Taylor

Good afternoon!

Here are some shots of two beautiful ladies I found at church in need of Christmas Card photos! Aren't they stunning? :-) Ashlie sings in our choir at St. James and has been blessed with the most beautiful musical gift of singing. Thanks Ashlie for serving God with your gift, it has truly been a blessing to me! Enjoy your preview!

Hannah Grace Crumby

Our prayers and thoughts go out today to the Crumby Family as they have lost their 4 year old daughter, Hannah Grace. Hannah was very near and dear to us, and grew up in the church nursery with my niece Kaitlyn. They were born pretty close together and spent their entire lives together growing up.

How soon we forget how precious life is to us. May we always be reminded that no matter what we are going through, how we hate our jobs, or lack thereof, or get frustrated at our situations, we should always be thankful we have our health and our families. Some do not. Praise God for his comfort and grace and that we can all now celebrate that Hannah is no longer suffering, but is happy, healthy and free in heaven.

In rememberence of Hannah, I have posted some of the few photos I have gathered of her and Kaitlyn over the years. Just click on the picture below to view the album.

Please pray that God will send peace and comfort to the Crumby family.

This is the link to her site that the hospital has set up for her through private donations. If you would like to see this site, or donate to help some of their expenses please create a log in and sign in.
