It is amazing to see such a love for God and a willingness to bow down to Him thru anything that comes their way. It really makes all our "big" problems seem so small. Their faith is unwavering.
Romans 8:28 says, "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
It isn't the road that they would have chose, for sure. But it was the path given. They are a living testament of the grace of God in ALL things.
I serve an awesome God.

I can't believe that he is almost 5 months old.
Eating LOTS (as you can tell) and already almost sitting up by himself.
Loves his johnny jump up and car rides...and his brothers.

January came in with a boom! It was New Years Eve 2006 when we found out we were pregnant with baby #3. I really wanted a girl and was sure that THIS one was it. Me and Jason celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary on the 18th. We have a nice dinner out, but I am too nauseated to enjoy any of it!
February brought in lots of snow...our first blizzard as a family! It just so happened that we were housing a conference guest for our church's annual biblical training conference. Good thing he was good company, we got snowed in. I think we got over 2 1/2 feet of snow in 24 hours! February 20th, we celebrated Cameron's first birthday. On the 25th, we had a party to celebrate. We told everyone we were expecting with Cameron's shirt. It read, "I am the BIG brother" Took some longer than others....March brings warmer weather and lots of play time outside.What good would April be, without good ol'baseball season. We make the trip up to Wrigley with both kids in tow! It was Cameron's first ballgame and he was LESS than enthused! We ended up hanging out in the city an extra day....seeing the children's museum and walking far more than we should have attempted with little ones. April brings good news of a sweet baby boy! I have my 20 week ultrasound and we find out we are having a little boy! Needless to say, once I saw his sweet little face, I wasn't at all disappointed that he...um...had extra luggage on board. We are officially due September 2nd..one day shy of Jason's b-day. In May we celebrate many milestones....It is one year since we graduated from Purdue! One year in our house! And my 24th birthday! We have made major improvements in updating the house, but still have lots of work to do.
October comes and we decide that a "theme" is in order for Halloween....the Wizard of Oz. We go out with good friends of ours, they are here from Japan studying at Purdue. I think they enjoy our "American" holidays.November brings fall, but a few last days of unseasonably warm weather. We take advantage and head outside. Thanksgiving was celebrated at my sis's house with family that I don't get to see all at once. Cameron is talking more now and Gavin is almost reading. Nolan is getting bigger and bigger...almost 15 lbs! My photo card business is taking off. After making a friend's birth announcement I have already received quite a bit of orders...We celebrate our 5th year as Christians!
December is here already and we are looking forward to the holiday. Jason is off work from the 22nd to the 2nd of January. What a blessing to be able to spend time as a family. We make lots of trips up north and have lots of lazy days. No big New Years excitement this year. We spend the evening on the couch watching "the Office"
WOW WEEEEEE! That was alot! I can't believe how much my boys have grown and all the things we have squeezed into the year....and these are just the BIG things! Thanks for all the love and I hope that you and your family enjoy all the 2008 brings!
