I have such a wonderful husband. I know that God looks down and smiles upon his servant heart. He takes every opportunity to teach our teens about service and he tries to get them out of their comfort zone. He would give the shirt off his back to a complete stranger and he is as gentle as a mouse.

My heart breaks for him when someone tries to tear him down with petty complaints about issues that won't matter in 5 hours(I stole that from Jim...thanks). Maybe this is why youth minister turnover is at about 18 months. This brings me to the National Conference on Youth Ministries in Atlanta! We are looking forward to fellowship with our fellow youth ministers! This is a time of renewal, a time to vent, and a time to talk with other people who know EXACTLY what you are talking about!

I am grateful to our shepherds who send us to the conference each year!

Well, it's offical: I'm 30! I wasn't looking forward to turning 30, but I had a wonderful birthday! I was reminded of how much I am loved by my friends and family!

Travis and Meredith bought me a cake with trick candles on it, so after they were all extinguished(literally with water) the cake looked and tasted a little waxy!

Fischer was in his preschool's Christmas program tonight. It is so fun to be a proud parent and watch him get up on stage. I will have some pics of him on stage soon, but for now I just have some pictures that I took before he went up on stage. I also have some pics of me with my wax cake...haha.

I feel bad because I haven't blogged in such a long time. I don't really have that much to say! Fischer's lead test came back as a false positive...that was a huge blessing!

Getting extremely excited about Florida...I am ready to thaw out! It's not even winter yet and we have had two straight weeks of ice, snow and COLD!!

I turn the BIG 30 tomorrow. I have 7 lours left to be in my twenties. Remember that show on TV called "The Thirty Somethings." I think that was the name of it. Anyway, I remember when that show came on, how OLD I thought those people were.

I added some pics of Fischer at Thanksgiving. The second one is Fischer with his great grandparents.
