Life at our House


This is what we get when we ask Ethan to smile--What a cheese! And on a more sober note...
Just thought I'd post these pics b/c they depict real life around here... it's either very, very happy or a little on the sad side, there is always someone moving at all times (notice how I can't even take a picture without it being blurry from movement), and my boys are always together (as close as they can possibly be to each other...this is usually Ethan's preference, not always Simon's :). But I know the day is coming that Simon too will be craving this sibling nearness. He already loves his big brother and is always laughing at the stunts Ethan pulls. It is so fun to watch.

Lord, thank you for sharing these 2 darling boys with me and Dave. We LOVE being their parents, and we just pray that You'll give us the wisdom and patience to raise them in a way that brings glory to You. Keep our eyes focused on the big picture, that someday they will be men and not just mischievious little boys. Our greatest desire is that they might come to know You in a personal way, to realize early their need for a Savior, so that none of their years will be wasted by the deceitfulness of sin.

I like the new look to the blog. Is the beta format? I'm trying to decide if we should make the switch. Caleb

No, I haven't switched yet. Blogger is still working out kinks with Beta, and some people I know have had trouble posting on people's blogs who AREN'T switched to beta. I'm waiting until I hear more good stuff about it.

This is just a template that Bluebird Blogs designed for me...Dave bought it for me for my birthday!
