Me, Jason and Gavin participated in our church's living nativity this weekend (http://www.faithlafayette.org/page616.aspx). For those of you that don't know, it is 12 scenes from the bible, acted out. It is really cool. This year, we all were in Bethlehem. Me and Gavin were commoners and Jason was a Roman soldier. Gavin was so cute in his biblical attire...wish I would have gotten pictures. Since it is Indiana, we actually have two different sets of cast for each scene so that no one has to stay out in the cold for very long. Just this weekend we saw more than 4,000 people come thru! It is truly a must see thing! Thankfully, the weather was gorgeous (for Dec) and it was more fun than sacrifice. Gavin had a blast and I am sure he will tell you all about it.
I can't believe that Christmas is almost here (8 more sleeps according to Gavin) :) Jason has the whole week of Christmas off plus a few days in January. I am looking forward to it! We are planning to go north Christmas day and then spend a few days there to visit with family. It will be busy, but we are looking forward spending time with those that we don't get to see very often.

What if I would have taken a different way home?
What if Jason wasn't home to move the car?
What if, what if, what if????
Thankfully, I know that God is in control of all things and we can only use this trial to bring glory to Him!! Thankfully it was not in His plan to allow our house to catch fire too. Thankfully it was not in His plan to allow one of us to be injured...or worse.
A car is just stuff and we can't take it with us. So even though it is frustrating and scary that a '02 Trailblazer can just catch on fire, it doesn't really matter. Please pray that insurance will come through as smoothly as possible and that we can move on as quickly as possible. Not having a vehicle is hard! I have posted some pics for those of you interested. Praise the LORD we are all safe!
This picture was taken just minutes after moving it from the driveway. To say the least, we are lucky to have gotten home when we did! All I can think about NOW is, how in my panic did I think to grab my camera??? I guess I thought if I didn't, I would never believe what I thought I was seeing.
This is of the car BEFORE the firefighters arrived. Needless to say, there was no saving it!
Here she is....Wow! Poor car :( Just so you know, we probably won't get a Chevy again!!!

Jason and I have decided to host Thanksgiving at our home this year, so the deadline is nearing for the room completion...I will let you know how that goes....kinda scary.

Here are some pictures of the boys. I can't believe how much they are growing and changing. Gavin is four and has become SO independent. He loves to play on the computer and going to storytime at the library. Cameron is crawling and pulling himself up and is starting to talk with sounds like "baba" and "dada" (we're...I mean I...am trying to get him to say "mama")!!!
Hope you have a good week....Jaime

1. A Savior who was willing to die on the cross for ME and loves and care for ME, even when I mess it all up!
2. My husband who is constantly growing and changing in order to be the best husband and father that he can be
3. My children who demand so much and yet teach me so much more.
4. Nap time ('nough said)
5. Warm November days (it hit 70's today!!!) where no jackets are required
I hope you stop and think about what you are most thankful for. Maybe there is someone in your life that you should thank. -J

Please remember to be praying for our troops. With life being so busy and things going on in our lives, so often we forget that our soldiers are making huge sacrifices for our freedoms. Jason brother is currently starting his second tour of duty in Iraq and has willing and sacrifically left his 9 month old son and wife. Being in her shoes not so long ago, I too remember the heartache of sending off someone you love. I stand firm behind our troops and pray that this time will go quickly and he will return home safe! Be praying for not only his safety and well being, but for his wife and son. They miss him dearly and I am sure that their days can sometimes be long and lonely.
