Christmas, Round Two

Our second round of Christmas was at our house. We woke up and did stockings and "Santa gifts." Blu built each of the kids rocking chairs and then used a laser cutting machine to carve their names in them with a picture--they are incredible!! The kids also got an old Radio Flyer wagon, which was a huge hit.

Then, Mama Dee and Grandpa came over and we opened more presents!! The kids favorite gifts were a train set and a mini Dirt Devil vacuum cleaner. My floors have never been so clean!

My dad carved this...more explanation to come later... :)

Cason wasn't too impressed with his first Christmas!

The kids had fun watching everyone open their presents!

Santa brought some interesting things in the kids' stockings!

Here's My Life

I stumbled across this song today and it really spoke to me. It describes a lot of what Blu and I are praying about right now. It's called "Here's My Life" by BarlowGirl.

Once again I said my goodbyes to those I love most
My heart feels that familiar pain as I long for hope
Cause this road is hard
When I feel so far

And God I'm crying out tonight
Cause I've givin you my life
But I'm tired and I'm missing whats behind
So once more here's my life

On the day that you called my name
All that I knew changed
I found when I said yes
That I would never be the same
Though the call is hard
You are worth it all

And God I'm crying out tonight
Cause I've givin you my life
But I'm tired and I'm missing what's behind
So once more....

Even when the tears are falling
When i find i fear the calling
You remind me
Words you've spoken over my life
Promises i've yet to see
You comfort me

Christmas, Round One

We were blessed to be able to take a 4 day vacation with Blu's family to Ruidoso, New Mexico! Our kids were so excited to see snow, and we had a blast together! Merry Christmas everyone!

I just liked this picture!

Graduation Day!

After three years of hard work and 91 hours, Blu graduated from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary today! He now has his Master of Divinity degree! We are all so proud of him! He worked hard and graduated with a 3.8!

This is the Bible cake I made for Blu's reception!
