The Year's First Birthday Celebrations!

-The aspiring hunter-
Even though he came out of the season empty handed, mom thought to honor his efforts by making his cake in the shape of a ten point buck!

Faith beautifully created this short sleeve button shirt out of a slightly fishy fabric.

A very nice new dress shirt and tie.

Today we celebrate John's 19th birthday and pray that this next year God will clearly guide and show what His will is for this special young man!

What would our family be without John?

A continuously maturing disciple and leader for His King Jesus Christ; a loving and entertaining friend; A swiftly growing debator, landscaper and businessman; a thumb-digging back rubber, deep bass singer, and third helping food eater - all these and so much more are what makes this handsome young man such a unique part of our family!

Happy Birthday John!

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light,
that all through him might believe.
He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.

John 1:6-9

The Squirrel and the Coyote... An inspiration for success!

This (slightly short of beautiful) aspect of God's creation was displayed right in our back yard (or rather on the other side of the 6 ft fence) to all our amazment. It seemed to give Baby some inspiration as she has been trying for some time to catch the silly squirrels that come in our back yard and almost succeeded this morning when a slow one was given a scare, but Baby was only left with a mouthful of hair! I don't think she was discouraged though and perhaps in the near future we will be posting a picture of her with her long awaited prize!
