Christmas Day

In reverse order because that is how blogger loaded them and I am not fixing it!

Ready for bed after a long day.

Looking at the gingerbread house!

He didn't like the bubbles in the bubble bath.

Family pictures

I forgot to say that I am so thankful for our friend, Kelsey Thompson, who gave her morning yesterday trying to capture the fun that is our family. Kelsey is a ballerina with Ballet Magnificat and commutes from Kosciusko to Jackson to dance with the company there. Thanks, Kelsey!

Quick update

We are all well and enjoying the busyness of the advent season. My shopping is done and we are wrapping up school for a few weeks. I have been cleaning like crazy the past week or so, and the house is neat for once.

Last week, Joe accepted a call to plant a church in Culpeper, Va. We hope to be on the field in Culpeper June of 2009. In the meantime, Joe will continue his job here in Kosciusko and will be raising the support necessary for a church start. We will basically be missionaries to Culpeper and will be asking churches and supporters to "send" us. It is an exciting and unsettling time, and we are looking forward to seeing God's hand guide us.

We are currently planning on putting our house on the market early in January. Selling a house in such a small town is always a hit or miss proposition, and recent economic troubles will only complicate it. But again, we are trusting in God's provision. He will provide a buyer or if not, He has an even better plan for us that might just include growing our patience during hard times!
