Love our Family

I just want to say that I love my mom and my sister!  It was so good to see them on our little vacation

We had a fantastic time getting together with our family over the Christmas holiday.  I believe it has been 11 years, maybe 12 years since we have been there for Christmas time.  It was such a blessing.  It was also so cool and unbelieveable how much the cousins have grown and changed!  I just was in shock the whole night!!!  Why do they have to grow? 
God has truly blessed our whole family! 
I love them all.

Amazing Technology

I was so excited today!  Today was a great day...not only did I get to talk to my mom on the phone for FOUR hours (yep, we did...love my momma!), but my daughter was able to chat with her BEST friend on video chat with her new ipod touch!  Now this may not seem very exciting to some, but my daughters best friend moved.  They have been friends since they were five years old and now they are "almost" 13!  Also, her friend didn't just move down the street...they moved to CHINA!  Yes they did and we are so very proud of them.  I know that God is working wonders in them for the chinese people.  However, it is still hard for a "almost" 13 year old to understand and come to realization that she can't see her best friend anymore.  However, God is great.  With our awesome technology my daughter and her best friend were able to see one another for the first time since they moved!  She's in China and my daughter is here in Idaho!  What a super duper blessing!  WOW!  They chatted twice today.  It is almost 9am Tuesday morning in China right now and my daughter got to see the family cooking waffles!  Who knew!  What a blessing!!!! 

Best friend in China and my daughter chatting with her!  SO COOL!

Can you see the happiness?  YEAH!  So thankful to be able to do this.  It really made my girl happy.

So excited to be leaving for a few days to see family for Christmas!  Haven't been able to do that for (I think) 11 years!!!  I ask that the Lord will protect us on this drive, for the roads may be icy.
I look forward to seeing all our families faces.  Hearing their laughs.  Getting to caught up on things.  Feeling their love.  Very Blessed are we.  This will be a very Merry CHRISTmas!

Christmas Party

Every year we enjoy my husbands employee Christmas party.  Although the adults come to visit and share stories, I think the children enjoy it the most.  There must have been 80 kids (I am guessing) and each and every one received a gift from Santa.  We are thankful and appreciate what this mountain does for all our families.  THANK YOU!

Yes I am a proud wife.  He makes me smile.  He makes me laugh.  He fills my world with much joy!  I am blessed.

Even my sweet oldest was able to say hi to Santa.  She would have been content without seeing him.  She and her friend waited to the very last, so the younger kids could get the gifts first.  There will always be a young spirit inside her.  I am proud. 

My baby...she is growing up so fast.  She was very excited to see Santa.  Though she always tells me the "real" meaning of "CHRIST"mas.  She says she still likes Santa, but she knows that Christmas is about Jesus.
I think she is a happy girl!  Don't you?

Beautiful evening for a Christmas Party!

Comfort in Times Like These

Paul wrote:  Philippians 4:12-13 & 19
I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty.  I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.  I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.
And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
