family pictures Nov. 2009
*Anna fixed the pictures where you can click them to view them bigger now. (thats for you, Ann Parker, I love you!!!!)
After much finagling, we did it!!!!! So, after phone calls and planning for several weeks, after checking weather for days and canceling and re-calling, after finding OSU gear for everyone, after trying to fit it in with the guys work, after a flat tire as we traveled over there yesterday to meet the guys, (Micah changing tire) after Daniel not having his sweatshirt when we got there and having to buy another one, we got to do what my heart desired!!! But what happens when you get 9 guys on a football field??? They want to play football!!! We had it all to ourselves, the Morris team, except for our kind host, John! We are still OSU fans even after the big loss on Sat.
Guess what us girls did last night?????? We went to hold and hold and hold and hug and snuggle and love on Lilian Ruth, "Mavie." She is so cute, co cute, so cute. I do not know how Dave pulled this one off.......yes I do, the Lord and Kate!!!!! Just kidding!!! Dave and Kate are a beautiful couple, so they make beautiful babies!!! Last night we just needed MORE babies to hold, it took to long to pass her around!!!! I even got to change her diaper!!
This week is super busy. Anna is going to get some teeth pulled today. Tomorrow evening the older ones will practice at the Burnett's church for the Christmas canata on the 13th. Thursday, Elijah has fire training, Friday is grocery day and also we are going to OKC to a church and walk through "Bethlehem." On Saturday is Elijah's 19th BD and also Caleb, Daniel, Bethany, Elijah and Anna are playing at the end of the journey of our town's little "Bethlehem journey" on Saturday.
The guys are a bit behind schedule with the CD project because all last week they made space for us!!!! They are working hard this week and hope to finish it up, get a proof, get the cover finalized, so maybe in time for Christmas gift giving! Save some money to get one!!!
I can not help and let my mind drift to Dec. 2006. The 3rd was the dreaded day we checked Joel in the hosp. and tons of tests on the 4th and the diagnoses, cancer! It is still hard to believe! I remember everyday so clearly. Our lives changed forever. The challenges that we faced the whole month. Jesus, I just have to keep speaking his name in my heart, it is by Him through Him, that I have my being, that I have hope, that I can get up everyday, because the pain and tears are still there......always in this life!!!! I miss you Joel, I wish you could have been a football player with us yesterday!!!!
