He's a Winner

Jack called me from school today to announce he won the reflections Art competition for Geneva Elementary for his age group. I'm very proud. We don't know what he won, or what that means but the mystery lady coming into his classroom to announce he was the winner was enough for him!

Please Pray...

There is a very real possibility that Joe's mom Mari got diagnosed with lung cancer yesterday. Please pray for the following things, we would appreciate it so much.

-First pray for an overwhelming peace for Mari, that she can feel God is with her every moment and that He is the ultimate physician. Pray she will feel His arms around her. 

-Pray for an accurate, concise diagnosis and treatment plan.

-Pray for smart, caring doctors and nurses that can provide her with exceptional care.

-Pray for Joe's sisters and their families as they help her navigate this process. 

-Pray for Joe as he feels helpless from this far away.

-Pray for a job for Joe so we will have the resources for him to travel to Missouri whenever he needs to be with her. 

With all that is going on in our lives and in this world it is such a comforting reassurance that all we have is God, and He is all we need. Thanks for praying.

There and Back!

Not even two boys vomiting almost the whole way home all over the car could put a damper on this trip. We had an amazing time. I have so much that I want to share that I will have to do it in stages. 

I already covered the puppy so I will start with our time at my parents house....

 I would love to tell you latter about:  *the 4000+ miles all the way to the Mississippi River and back  *Entering a lot or a little of each of the following states! WA, OR, ID, UT, WY, NE, IA, MO in December with three kids *Christmas Day *Searching and cutting our tree on my parents land with my brother *Spending the night outside of Kansas City with my Aunt Cheryl and Uncle Tom *Hunting with my Uncle Dave *Visiting Joe's family including meeting his mom (for the first time) in Missouri and loving them!!!!! *Seeing Sonja, Terry and Justin again *Ethan's first visit to the Bass Pro Shop *Visiting the Arch in St. Louis *my cute nephews 

The time we were able to spend with friends and family was so wonderful. It made every mile well worth the trip. I can't thank God enough for providing safe travels. The roads were terrible at times but God got us there and back with no serious issues. It was awesome. 
The sunset from my parents deck...

One of the many excellent views along the way, Wyoming I think.

My parents cozy cabin on the Platte river in Nebraska

Jack, the self proclaimed camel trainer, cute! 

Christmas day sledding with Uncle Andy and dad.

Drew again in one of his first times in the snow. 
The bird feeder on the deck is constantly full of cardinals. They are beautiful. There is a 'hunting' story about two boys and a cardinal but I won't go into that now. 
Sitting in the hot tub, freezing outside. Fun.
Ethan and his cousin Joseph had a lot of fun together. 
Mom cringing at the poor bird but Ethan, like my dad and my brother loves Hunting! 
All the grand kids under one roof: Joseph, EE, Drew,  Happy Grandma, Happy Grandpa, Max, Bellie and Jack. :)
Ahhhh more hunting! Poor Birds.
