God's Grace...

Our family continues to thank God for His blessings in our Family!  Since August we have been busy with the kids and Mark with work! Thought I would share a few pictures of what has been happening:

Brynn, Mark and I at Brynn's Bible Ceremony at Church

Brynn is growing up, she is in 3rd grade already and is going to be 10 in June!
After Benjamin's Varsity Football Game.  Hard to imagine Benjamin is going to be 17 in a few weeks. Oh does he add spice to our family!

Brynn and I had a blast watching my best friends daughters at state Dance. We have been friends since 2nd Grade.  Laura is the best, we can not speaks for weeks, and we call and we can catch up like we call everyday! She is my prayer partner and best friend. Although I have been blessed with so many great friends.

My Dad retired from his job of 43 years! My sister and I wanted to spend the day in Minneapolis cheering the Yankees on with him. We took Lisa's daughter Kira along. We had so much fun. My other sister Julie told us she was going to have her baby on the day of the game, but we thought what are the chances....

Yup, Abram was born before we left! He is the sweetest little baby!

My beautiful Nieces Kira and Piper,  Jacoby and Brody Thanksgiving weekend
we had baptism for Abe. 

We celebrated Christmas with everyone! Here are my parents with the kids.

Sweet Abe and Piper

Our Family took off to Florida for the Christmas Holiday with Mark's Family! What a huge blessing to spend time together in warm weather!
Christmas morning in Chattanooga, TN

Brody found a hiding spot! This little guy is way to smart for his own good. He speaks like a 5 year old. His favorites are playing Buzz with Benjamin, trucks with Beau, trains with Bradyn and Jake with Brynn.  Yes, he is spoiled!
Beautiful day at the beach

Cousins had lots of time to laugh and play.

Went to see Winter from Dolphin tale!

Beautiful Sunset

Beau's friend got married over the Holidays! Needless to say, Beau, I and Brody flew back! :)

We tried to take a Family picture, of course it was the coldest Sunday morning in a long time!

God has blessed us with these 5!

I have asked for prayers for our Neighbor girl Carmen who was fighting for her life with lymphomia. God called her home, she leaves behind 4 precious children.

These past months we continue to pray for Liberia, and the Government, especially Marcus. Our hearts break for him because he does not understand why we have not come for him. Adoption is tough on us adults but it is the children who do not understand why and what is going on.

"Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ." Romans 5:1

"Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you."  2 Thessalonians 3:16
