Family Shots by the all famous photographer Christopher DeWitt!!!

Chris does such a great job and as you look closely at the pics you realize not only is he a good photographer he is a magician!! If you click on the pictures they will come up full size. I don't know who that old woman is, but he sure got some good shots! He captured some special moments in time for all of us! I am so proud of him - and he truly loves what he is doing - to see more of his stuff go to his website, there is a link on the right.

Frosting on the cake

Some would say this is "adding insult to injury" with the ice still on the trees , but I love snow, so to me it is the frosting on the cake. It is beginning to look alot like Christmas - Lord help us to focus on the true meaning of Christmas - the birth of Your Son - our Saviour and Lord if there any reading this who do not have a personal relationship with you, I pray they would come to know you personally during this season.

Family pics from Louisville

Here are some shots from Louisville, Christopher did the family portrait of Dans family as well as the picture of Nick (he did not get his picture taken at school - so this is a much better option!!). The rest are random shots - we had the best time - I love being with my family !! Thank you Lord that they love being with us too!!!

Ice Storm Dec 2007

This is what we came home to on Monday!! The pictures tell the story - the bottom 4 pictures are looking in different directions off our front porch - what a mess! We thank God our home was not damaged and no one was hurt!!

Dans Graduation

Christmas is coming!

The navity set is out, but the tree is not up. We are headed to Louisville tomorrow for Dan's graduation, so we will put our tree up when we get back. We are so excited to see everyone.. Chris, Jen, Jordan and Caylee are going to be there, we have not seen them since February! It will be a whirlwind weekend - Dan graduates Friday, April is making Lasagna and there will be others there to celebrate, Saturday is Caylees 6th birthday, so we will have a party - Sunday we'll go to church and then just relax (or shop) the rest of the day. I decorated a bit outside and if you look close you will see it was snowing this morning!!! Not enough to accumulate, but enough to see it was white. Hope all is well in your world, we are coming into a season of celebration. First and foremost the birth of our Savior, a more costly gift was never given! A time to enjoy family and friends. Both the boys and their families will be here for Christmas - we are looking forward to a good long visit then. Hope your season is merry and bright!
