Countdown to Christmas

Yes, call it pathetic. We rank up there with the blogger burnout gang.

It has been about 6 months since we updated, but it's time for a change.

This year we are doing a special countdown to Christmas with Duke.

Each night he gets to unwrap a Christmas book from under his tree and we read it together.

Here are some shots from the first night. The Friendly Beasts by Tomie dePaola.
(I will do my best to get a few of these up).

Life Flies By


How bad are we at blogging? Well we just let a year go by without an update. Yeah that is pretty bad. Hopefully this update will bring you up to speed on our life.

The Duke is a quite a kid. He is extremely opinionated and quite spunky. One the flip side, he is full of kindness , cares about others, and is doing an awesome job at using manners. He really needs a sibling, and it is most evident by his desire to have someone to play with most of the time (We are on the wait list and making our way towards a brother or a sister). We are often surprise by his intelligence and his ability to understand difficult concepts. Someday he will be a wise man of God, who goes hard after the things of Christ.

Below are some pictures to highlight the past year.
