After Christmas Snow!

Naomi and Ava were convinced that there would be snow at Uncle Lyle & Aunt Stephanie's house, so when there wasn't we headed up to Bunny Flat at Mt Shasta. All the Christmas fun can wear little girls out! They crashed on the 1/2 hour ride to the snow. Snow fun!

Luke prefered pretending to drive over being out in that strange white cold stuff.

Luke's just not sure about the giant affectionate Chloe, but Lyle and Ava are smitten!

We headed up to Lyle & Stephanie's with Stacie, Olivia & Rylie a few days before Christmas and had fun as always!

God's sovereignty in the lives of our children

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55:8-9
My way was healthy baby born in May
God's way is baby in heaven with him at 14 weeks gestation
My way was 4 children before my hubby ends his 40th year
God's way is 3 on earth and 3 in heaven.
The Lord gives and the Lord takes away
Blessed be the name of the Lord.
