Merry Christmas!









The kids are counting down the days! We are so excited that Christmas is just 2 days away. Tomorrow we will be going to visit Joey's grandparents for lunch and then my Grandma's for dinner. We'll be busy, busy, busy, for next 3 days. Here are a few pictures of the kids from their Christmas party, our church program, and some other random photos.

This Season

Sunday marked four years since Colt passed away. It's a day that holds vivid memories and stirs up all kinds of emotions as well. I can't say that I've walked out the last 4 years gracefully, but I can say that God was and is by my side. Time has gone by so fast, and it is so hard to believe he's been in heaven longer than he spent with us here. I can still remember that night like it was yesterday. I often try to understand but in all honestly I can't.


This time of year is such a beautiful but a hard season. I am learning to be grateful for this time. I am definitely not who I was 4 years ago. None of us are. I am learning that God has a plan and a purpose for our life that included Colt's illness and also his death. Not that I blame God, I know who is responsible for his cancer, but I also know Who was in control and Who had the final say, and I'm learning to be at peace with that. Saturday we went out to the cemetary and took a grave blanket again to lay over his grave. I ordered one of these for the first time last year and they are so beautiful. I hope you all get a chance to go out and see it. Here are a few pictures of it that I took on Saturday.

Just a little late

This is why it has taken me so long to get Thanksgiving pictures up! Anyhow, we had a great Thanksgiving. Joey fried a turkey, my sister cooked the best dressing using my grandmothers recipe, I actually cooked a few things too! It was so yummy. Not only was the food great, but we had so much to be thankful for this year.

This is Joey and Luke frying the turkey. Joey is wearing his apron that Colt bought for him. Children's Medical Center had set up a little store for the kids to go down to and shop for their families for free.

Jolea was not so sure about eating this turkey. She was so sad for it. She kept awwing. Bless her heart.
This is the turkey that Luke and Jolea's class made at school. Lukes feather is the one on the bottom left with the real turkey feathers. Jolea's is the darker colored one on the upper right.

Luke at his Prek feast!
