poor mans Christmas card

Okay, so here is our poor mans Christmas card...posted online is free!!
If you want one printed to hold in your hands, put on your fridge or to frame for your mantle, let me know and I will GLADLY send one to you...a nice 8x10 will look good over the fireplace...
Merry Christmas to you all and Happy New Year!
We wish we could be with all of our friends and family for the holidays, but I think we'd have to rent the conference hall at the Hilton!
We are so blessed to call you our friends and/or family and hope that you know how much we love you!
We pray you know the love of our God who sent His son to earth to die for us so that we can be forgiven of our sins and be with Him someday...the true meaning of Christmas!

spoke too soon and some catch up

I spoke too soon on the sickness being's not nearly as bad, just Brock and Reagan with colds and Reagan got cellulitis again for the third time...sooooo painful for her and it needs to GO AWAY!!!

So, I realized that I forgot to get our halloween pictures on so here are a few:
Reagan kept showing up with candy (I guess people thought she was cute so they kept giving it to her!) she has two suckers here ready to give one to her friend Zac...Zac's a little shy...I think he likes her...

or it's the other way around...Reagan gave him the red sucker and the sweetest hug!

Here is Brock and Rick and little Zac and Sam both came as penguins! Stinkin' cute!

Reagan with Grandma and Ti-ti Carmen

little mischievous grin

always the little ham! She wore this costume last year, but it still fit and nothing was as cute! (Sam will wear it next year!)

Samuel was done at this point in the night!

nobody tell...Sam wore tights!

And here are a few to get December the way, I know I said I would be posting once a week, but I've failed miserably and will again with our vacation coming. I ask for grace as we finish the year and I'll start again fresh in 09!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

The sickness has stopped!

FINALLY! The sickness in our house has stopped! My last post, asking for forgiveness was just a few hours early. That night, the flu hit Reagan, HARD! All night long (literally with hardly a stop) the "adventure" endured, then early Saturday morning, Sam got his second round of it, and about an hour or two after his hit, mine hit! Oh it came with a fury! The carnage was unbelievable! I'll spare you the details, but let's just say that diapers and buckets don't catch all that exits the body when kids have the flu!
Sam had the bug affecting his "southern end" for about 10 days! It was so awful for him...he had the worst rash I've ever seen from the constant "irritation". Thank the Lord he is better now as of yesterday and the rash is almost gone already. Thanks to all who have been praying for us!
I have to give a HUGE thank you to my amazing husband, Brock who played nurse/maid to the three of us for a couple days. It was non stop messes, laundry, soup making, drinks, baths, diaper changes, bucket washing, etc. He certainly rose to the occasion and did EVERYTHING! He was really awesome and I thank God for such a great man. Let's face it, not every dad/husband would do the things he had to do. He didn't complain once, I don't think he even sat down more than once all of the first day. I couldn't have handled it better myself. So thank you Brock and I love you more than words could say!
Okay so on to more pleasant are LOTS of pictures...again!
Here is the month of might be long for you so take a few minutes and enjoy! (click on picture to see bigger slideshow)
