What really counts...

Today Emma, our youngest, had to have an emergency appendectomy. This picture was taken as they wheeled her down the hall to surgery. Everything went well and she's now resting across the room from me.

It really made us think about all the blessings God has given us. Our hearts go out to our friends that are having to celebrate Christmas for the first time without their father or husband or mom or daughter. We took some time tonight to pray for them.

We are so thankful for the family God has given us and don't want to waste one minute of the precious time God has given us with them.

Don't mess with the old man!

I tried to get everyone else to quit when I was only a little bit ahead.  But no... they had to keep going until someone dominated and won.  I guess they learned not to mess with the old man. (Actually, I got really lucky!) P1010014

This picture was taken just before Ryan "committed suicide" on the Pay Luxury Tax square and lost his last $12.  I had already crushed the other four players :)

Future plumber

Gotta love the Christmas market... You're liable to see anything! (I wonder if he feels a draft?)
