Happy Birthday Jesus!

We are so glad you came!



For unto us a child is born, a son is given:...and His name shall be called WONDERFUL, COUNSELLOR, the MIGHTY GOD, the EVERLASTING FATHER, the PRINCE OF PEACE. Isaiah 9:6
And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call His name JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins. Mt.1:21


Praising God for the greatest gift of all ~ JESUS! Merry Christmas from our family to yours!

kids caring for kids/ Prairie Christian School

Check out this Lifesong for Orphans blog post. Our kids have been attending Prairie Christian School for 4 years now. The school, families and, especially, the teachers have been such a blessing to us. It was really fun to see the kids "get" Christmas this year.
Praise God for working in the PCS students' hearts for the children in Zambia and for reminding me that He is pleased with childlike faith!
Merry Christmas!

Happy 2nd Birthday Hope!


Time goes so fast. Our baby is turning 2! If I could freeze our family right now, I would. I love the mix of elementary age kids and the cute cuddly pre-k/toddlers.

Hope getting a smooch from daddy while in Ethiopia.


Home from Ethiopia.




We often comment on what a different girl she is now. She was so quiet and non-expressive for a long time but now she is SO expressive and loves to "talk." She said 3 new words today.
Is this picture a prophecy of future phone bills to come?!?! :-}




Happy Birthday Hope Tizita. You are a special gift from God! We love you.

Hope gets her groove on...

When we were at Horn Creek this past summer, Hope got way into the singing. She seriously danced like this for about a half an hour.
Sorry I can't get the video to turn but if you turn YOUR head a lot to the left, it works! (hee, hee !)

Ouch!!



Travor was playing with Hope and I guess they thought she needed some bandaging!
Thankfully, she did not do anything to require three band aids to her forehead, but I thought the pics were cute!


I see how babies of the families get their fun personalities!
