the four of us :: february 2011

So here we are again :)

* one family photo * MY family * each month * for an entire year *

family props

The month has simply flown by. Ren had strep throat for the first time since his tonsillectomy a couple of years ago. Our fourth level flooded after a major sump pump FAIL. Tony surprised me with a box of Cabela's fudge and it wasn't even Valentine's Day! Started up with photography sessions again this month. Meeting after meeting after meeting. Our first Faithbooking Crop in ages. A Pippy playdate. Lots of special munchkin moments. Filed my sales tax. Went to Mickey's Dining Car AND Red Lobster - both special treats for the kids. Girl Scout Cookies. The best sermon ever at church. So good in fact, I'm going to post it here:

I hope you're blessed by this message of love as much as I was.

The month still isn't over. The kids have another day off of school (and another sleepover), we're getting both a new AND back-up sump pump installed on Tuesday, and my birthday is next weekend. Our family began the tradition sometime back of letting the birthday person plan their own special family day... and family members can't complain. Which means if I want to spend an hour browsing in Archiver's and stop at Chipotle for lunch, there can be NO COMPLAINTS. They don't have to like it, but there can be NO COMPLAINTS.

I'll let you know how it goes.

Tina, WOW - thank you for sharing that awesome testimony from Dave & Carol Kranz given at Hosanna. What an miracle story of love - God's love in the midst of trusting Him through their cancer journey. They are living out their faith as a light to others!
