Hope your Christmas was a merry one. We had a very quiet one here in our new home. We have been playing games and watching movies and just having family fun together. It is great to have all the kids together. Tori is home from college. This has definitely been a Christmas to remember. So grateful to the Lord that our family is okay.

By God's amazing grace and protection over us we survived an extremely bad car accident on Friday Nov.7th. We hit a concrete barrier at 70 to 80 miles a hour .Our car flipped or rolled at least twice and slid a very long ways. All 6 of us were in our car, Mazda CX9, we thankfully walked away from the scene with minor scraps and bruises.Look at the car!!!! We are all very shaken by this but have all witnessed a great miracle and are drawing closer to each other and Jesus! Thank you for your love of support through emails and cards. It was Ian's 8th birthday and I'm sure it will be one he won't forget soon. Please continue to keep the family close in your thoughts as it has been hard not to re-live it ,very terrifying. We are so thankful to Jesus for His rescuing hand over us. We love you all and are so glad to still be here!!!!!

S'mores Anyone?

Ian having the best time getting those marshmellows roasted perfectly. He enjoys making s'mores more than he enjoys eating them.He is so cute the way he offers to help you roast your marshmellows as well. As luck would have it Daddy loves burnt marshmellows. Ian sure doesn't! ;)

Chelsea @PLNU for camp

Here is our goofy girl waiting for a ride home with her tormented fellow campers. I'm sure they were after spending a week with this crazy character...LOL No really, Chelsea had the privilege to serve as a Camp Counselor this year. She had the most amazing time drawing closer to God and leading a group of freshman girls at camp. Her highlight was baptizing a girl ,in the Ocean ,that had redirected her life to Christ. Also Mitch and Chelsea had an amazing time on the streets of San Diego ministering to the homeless. Thank you Lord Jesus for working in the hearts of your people!

Nighty Night

After a long afternoon for Ian,playing with the slip and slide and swimming in the pool. Red and Rocky decided to join him in his quest for rest... a nap! Such super sweet boys ;)
