Hi everyone! Sorry I’ve been so scarce around here lately, as usual, we have been extremely busy. But fun busy, the cousins are in town! We have all been shopping, decorating, playing, wrapping and baking around Mom and Dad’s house here lately. The times when our whole family is together again is such a blessing. Asher has been loving having big cousin Wesley around to play with and he is so sweet to baby Riley Mae. Winter here in Texas is tricky…one day its mid 30′s and the boys are struggling to play outside for 10 minutes, and the next day its a beautiful 75 degrees and we are breaking out the summer t shirts and shorts to play in out back. Before letting them loose out back, Mama always has to step out and evaluate the clothing to be worn for the day’s play Before I share photos, how about a quick Dash update?
He says that they have been staying busy and will continue to straight through Christmas. Unfortunately, the enemy knows our holidays well and therefore they end up being a time of greater activity and alert for our soldiers. But as always, Dash is staying positive and enjoying the fast pace. He says it helps time to pass more quickly. From the sound of it, they have recieved many packages of Christmas goodies and items to help them stay warm. He had the opportunity to fly in a helicopter just this past week and he says that the snow covered mountains are quite a beautiful sight. If any of you have time, I’m sure Dash would love to recieve special Christmas notes/prayers via email. He gets to come home at the end of January for a two week visit and we are counting down the days until then! Remember to pray for him and his soldiers especially now, I know that it feels a little more lonely for them all, especially this week.
Now, pictures! I hope you are all enjoying this exciting week leading up to the celebration of our Saviour’s birth! Have a blessed Christmas!
