"Just Take A Hike"

At some point and time we all cross a bridge in deciding how to handle a situation...

When you get turned away at the DMV because you don't have the right docs even though your DL expires in 6 days...just "take a hike". Seriously...even if it's 39 degrees and you've had no breakfast. Seize the moment with the little people in your life.

Then when you are all done, stop by Panera and have a pastry and coffee by the fire place.

~ Dawn & Autumn's unexpected date (thanks to the DMV). ~

Updates from Abroad

Some of my dearest, dearest friends are in China *right now*. About 1 hour ago they received their new 15 month old son. We were just able to video conference so I could see their sweet baby boy, Ethan William. Wow! I am full of emotions and beyond elated for my sweet friends. Here are some snapshots taken from our webcam.

My heart is so full, I don't even know what to say!
Thanking Jesus for this miracle!


Aaron & Lily Updates

Well, it's been quite the month for "the babies".

On January 6th we celebrated their 2 year Gotcha Day.

And, today (Jan 17th) they gave up their cribs. They are no longer "babies" and are now sleeping in toddler beds. Lily really is under that mess of blankets. She just sleep with them over her head.

DC in the Winter

My girlfriend, Jen, and her girls came up for a few days. We all went to DC one of the nights and it was neat because I had never seen DC at night time...very pretty. And it was nice to see the National Christmas Tree.
