"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.


Christmas Eve fun

Seth, Brooke, and Sean spent Christmas Eve with us.  Sean loved his boots and
 kept them on all evening.

May May (Meg) gave Sean a huge bear.

And this is our traditional pickle search.  Do you know about the pickle?? 
You hide a pickle which is green, (not real) ours is little which makes it that much harder to find.
And we wait to hide it right before the search begins or there would be searching ahead of time. 
The finder receives an extra gift.

Brian found the pickle! :)
