This blog is about our family, who have dealt with the loss of two sons with Muscular Dystrophy, the adoption of a son diagnosed with Agenesis of Corpus Callosum and the birth our a healthy little girl. It's a crazy life, but we are loving it.

Just A Few Things

I'm one of those people who try to take it one holiday at a time. I enjoyed Halloween and I don't even want to think about Christmas till after I have my turkey on Thanksgiving.

However, Mark and I trying to be intentional this holiday season. We are trying to stress the importance of the real reason and meaning behind Christmas. We chose to participate in Operation Christmas Child.

Both of our kids got to pack a box for a child. They were really excited to pack all the little things we got and I'll post more about it when we drop off the boxes of Saturday. I'd post pictures but my camera ran out of batteries and I can't even turn it on to download them.

Whew, what a week it's been. I'm gearing up and getting ready to make A LOT cookies for our bank's annual Christmas party (this Saturday, before Thanksgiving), I've been practicing making homemade rolls, since I volunteered to bring them on Thanksgiving and Ethan decided to share his stomach bug with me which knocked me out all weekend. Thanks, E!

If I survive this week and remember to buy batteries, I'll post pictures!!


  1. Love the thankful take on that saying:) Operation Christmas child is amazing. We need to do it this year also! Hope you are feeling better soon!
