"More than meets the eye..."

January 22nd was Richard's "big day". He looked forward to it for months. To him, it was the final leap into big boy-hood. To his mama it was yet another milestone indicating that her sweet baby was all-too-quickly becoming a little man...
Richard excitedly assesses the Transformers party decor the morning of his birthday.
He can now hold up all five fingers when people ask how old he is. "I'm fide," he'll tell you.
I have to say, I've never pulled a party together so quickly in my life. There is something to be said about a pre-packaged theme and popular characters. Thankfully, the boy didn't notice, nor care, that I didn't spend months researching and planning his birthday party...
that I didn't make the cake.....
that his only game was a ribbon-pull pinata.

It was all about the friends, the presents, and the extra love and attention...


Check out those tough guy eyes!
 January 28th was a big day for my girls. They both got baptized! 

This was one of those very special moments in life--not only for my daughters, but for Dale and I; their very proud parents.

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!" 2 Cor. 5:17
