Christams Traditions

Saturday marked our 8th annual trip to the Merry Christmas Tree Farm to seek out the perfect Christmas Tree.

This is the beauty that will grace our home with its continual holiday splendor right into the new year.

Once selected, Kevin merrily chopped it down.

Olivia insisted on helping!

After the tree was shaken, wrapped, purchased, and loaded in the truck, we hit the tree fields for a few rounds of playful hide-and-seek.

Lots of hugs!

Amazing Grace

Kevin and I were baptized at church this past Sunday. You can watch it here. (In "The Life of Job" series under week #5. Our baptism starts about 17 minutes into the service if you want to FF.)

I'm very grateful to have taken my next step and glad that Kevin and I took this step together.

Thanks to Mama and Daddy for getting up extra early to be there. It made the occasion that much sweeter.

And thanks to Heather and Josh for getting four boys up and ready for the early service on Sunday so you could be in attendance. Lots of hugs to you, Heather, for taking these pictures!!

This Thanksgiving (and everyday after) I'll be most grateful that God was passionate enough to be patient with me for 31 years.
