Day of Celebration

Today was a big day for us here...so y'all get two pics...enjoy!


Another year is gone. Hard to believe that my baby is seven. Time flies. Where did it go? As I do with each of my children on their birthdays, we took out Sam's baby album and looked through it together throughout the day. It really is so special every year to do that with them. I love the fact that he doesn't want to grow up. It makes me smile when he curls up tight in a ball to try to show me that he can fit in my tummy still. Those are among the thousands of moments that I will treasure of Sam. And everyday I am excited to make new ones with him. He is such a blessing and joy! Happy Birthday Sam!



Tonight we had a multi-cultural Christmas worship service. Alot of our South Asian friends and their families were there to take part in the celebration. The backdrop was so vibrant and colorful with the fabrics and the many women in their sarees. It was a festive evening of fellowship, dancing and of course...flavorful fare. The kids acted out the story of the nativity which was a much needed and wonderful reminder of the true meaning of this season. These are traditional Indian votives. They are beautiful all lit up and so I had to share a picture of them with you.
