Jesus is my friend. He is my exemplar. He is my teacher. He is my healer. He is my leader. He is my Savior and my Redeemer. He is my God and my King.
Gratefully, and with love, I bear witness of these things."
We’ve been busy-busy the last few weeks!
So much to tell you about and journal here on the blog… a fun family trip to Arizona, a birthday party, more milestones, and a very positive 2-yr well check.
But, there are too many preparations left to complete for the upcoming holidays and lots of fun company coming!
So, for now…
We wish you a very
We hope you have a wonderful holiday…
See you in 2011!
With this post, I’m considering myself caught up…
I will do better with posts on December’s activities… promise.
Before Halloween… way back in mid-October, my brother, Erik, and sister-in-law, Emily, came to visit! (Like I said, I’m way behind on blogging the family stuff.)
A brief synopsis…
With Connor, we kept things pretty low-key, making sure that there was plenty of time for bonding…
Brian was able to take a much-deserved day off, so we all headed downtown to the Shedd on one of the days during their visit.
Big E and little e.
Check out that spread… he’s 6’4”, and she’s 5’2”. (I know!)
As a tall girl, I really should hate her (for taking a tall guy off the market), but I like her way too much, and she did marry my brother.
Emily and I got some good bonding time in, too. Like the afternoon I hit a bunny rabbit with the car on our way to the store, and I couldn’t bear to see it flopping around on the street in my rear-view mirror, so I u-turned and finished it off. Thump… thump.
Not my finest moment.
Besides the rabbit massacre, it was a fun, few days.
We’re so glad they came out to visit!
Hopefully roadkill won’t keep them away for too long… ;)
Yeah, just a little behind in my family blogging… bear with me.
Halloween was very low-key for us this year. Connor’s not yet two, so he doesn’t really know any different. We had plans to go out of town, but changed our minds at the last minute and opted for a quiet family weekend at home instead. Brian carved his annual pumpkin – Elmo this year, of course. And, Connor had to give it kisses.
The only candy I had in the house at the last minute were Tootsie Pops from Halloween 4 years earlier. No one seemed to mind. ;) Connor had a grand time just passing out candy to all the trick-or-treaters, at least those he didn’t scare away with his excited screeches.
Because I need to add a little seasonal balance to this post… it being December and all, here you go:
