Hello Folks,
Life has been an absolute non-stop. Business salesmanship, regular work, house hunting, parties and more!
As always, I shall let the pictures tell the tale. Your prayers are appreciated!
Many regards!
As Always,
Love in Christ Jesus,

Book recommendation of the week. Noah's Ark, Thinking outside the box. Captivating illustrations with new ideas and concepts that help bring the reality of the story alive.

PS Don't forget, purchasing through my linked vendors will, even in a small way, support this blog.

With my work calling me away from my camera, it falls upon my wife to capture some of the going ons of the day-to-days

Christmas in January

Four generation together in joy

One generation of conflict

Some say Christmas is for the kids ....

To see their faces, I'd almost agree ...

I, however, am sure Christmas is for the grandparents.

Um ... "hi"

Waiting ...

Behold, the great YANKEEEEEE SWAP!

Home stuff

Daddy = Me

Who would have thought? 11 Months later and we are STILL finding them!

With the birth of our son, our poor mushroom baby was forgotten. It looks like we've gone a bit too long on this one. Oh well, guess I'll have to read up on the instructions again, (or maybe just follow them)
Kombucha Phenomenon: The Miracle Health Tea: How to Safely Make and Use Kombucha

I think 'e looks just like 'is uncle Aidan in this one

The art of fatherhood

A time for training

A time for training ... Though it may not look like it, we are actually training to become fierce SYSTEMA warriors!

A course with Mr. Botkin




Like father like son ...

Sometimes a spring breeze ...

Sometimes a cloudy storm

Poke! (sorry son, it's a Facebook thing, you'll understand someday)

Gosh! I am exhausted!

Family times

Which is to be matched, a mother's joy ...

... or a young son's laughter?

Brothers, those who were once so young ...

... canst though imagine, he was once so young and cute ... once ...

Well, times have change. Some day, I suppose this young man will also grow up to be quite the uncle.

Sound the bugle ...

Hunting for our quarry ...

My wife, a partner in the hunt ...

Diaper changing on the run ...

Cashing in on our Yankee Swap prize ... Nothing like having some one ELSE prepare the meal for oneself after a long day searching for the prize.

The final wave of Christmas gifts arrive in the mail ... but, better late then not at all. Still, I am indeed grateful.

Quite the greatful young Jack Spratt

Quite overwhelmed, I'm sure.
Well folks! That's all for now.

Suffering from Post Christmas Blues? You aren't the only one ...

Hello Folks,
I hope the New Year finds everyone well. As usual I will let the pictures tell the story. However I do want to take this time to say how grateful I am for all of God's little and, you know, not so little kindnesses throughout the year.
Life is a learning curve, but here's to 2010!
As Always,
Love in Christ Jesus,

Book reccomendation for the week. Thinking about gardening yet, this book is the ultimate guide for anything shrubs and higher. I never knew how many ways there were to take care of an apple tree, or a rose or a ...

Christmas Eve

"Son, I must share a great secret with you. Santa is not real!" "Pshaw Dad, I already knew THAT!"

"When I grow up, I'm gonna tell everyone the truth about Santa!" "Ok son, you do that."

Christmas eve at the relatives, and who should show up?

"Don't worry dad, I know the truth"

Christmas Madeira style. Gotta have the maracas.

And we wonder where my mom gets her enthusiasm from. Well, I don't!

Nick ... or Jake ... or Nick. Ah the complications of twins.

Mom and aunt Marilyn our hostess

Hey babe! Love you ... much!

Christmas day

Christmas day begins with a trip upstairs to play with the kids legos ... 

Boy, if I was ten, this'd be heaven!

Please sir, can I have some more?
