New Year’s Traditions

Well we were discussing New Year’s traditions and specifically what traditions we should adopt or hold to as a family. It seems we have decided on being sick for New Year’s although I hope this does not become a tradition.
It started with Ethan Sunday afternoon then Austin, Tyler, and I got it. As we were just about on the recovery road, Angie, Brendan, and Karissa get sick. Just one left and so far Aleigha is just fine.
We are defiantly praying for good health in the New Year.
P.S. We have 4 or so inches of snow :)

Merry Christmas!!!

 I love everything about Christmas: the lights, trees, presents, colorful wrapping paper, ribbons and bows, carols, plays, cookies, and shopping. It is so easy to get all caught up in these things and forget the true meaning of Christmas. JESUS CHRIST

It is so amazing that the GOD who created the entire world and everything in it would chose to come down from heaven to be born in a stable, live among us, and then die on a cross for our sins so that we could one day go to heaven to live with him.

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God manifest in the flesh justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up in glory.  1 Timothy 3:16

So while you are spending time with friends and family don't forget the TRUE meaning of Christmas!

Merry Christmas,

I think I will stay inside today...

I couldn't resist taking another picture of this today. Yes, it does say negative 10. Though I don't think it is completely accurate because our digital one says -4. Either way I don't think I will be going outside today. Yesturday the water pipes in Jacob's and my bathroom and the kitchen froze. Jacob was off so he went under the house and reinsulated them. Today he went to work wearing 2 heavy coats and insulated gloves.      -Angie

Hairdresser shop in Norway: "Nice face ... shame about the hair."

Furniture store in Australia: "Our beds are factory-trained not to jump on your children. Please show the same courtesy."

On a van for a company that does window treatments in New Zealand: "This van is driven by a blind man!"
