Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ

On our way out to California a little over two weeks ago, we stopped in Groom, Texas to see the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.
It was very hot and windy so we did not stay long.

Still, it was a nice stop.
This picture of Natalie and William shows just how close they are.  Natalie adores her big brother.
A big shout out to my Aunt Tanya who opened up her home to all of us for nearly two weeks.  
Thank you!


Nothing helps to cool off like a good ol' popsicle.

Sandy and Gail

Good friends who also happen to be amazing, mentoring, loving, caring women of God do not come along everyday.  Our family has been incredibly blessed by these two ladies and it was a delight to be able to spend time with them on our trip to California.

We love you Sandy and Gail!  Though we are hundreds of miles apart, you 
both are always in our hearts.

Meeting Baby Jackson

Our oldest daughter Rachel and her husband had a baby on March 1st, 2017.  Here is a picture of baby Jackson with John when he was just a day or two old.  He is a cutie!
A few days ago the rest of us finally got to meet Jackson.  He sure has grown in three months!  He is a cute little chunk!

It was nice visiting with Rachel and Anna too.  It's great that the two of them live so close
to each other.

Family Pictures

Uncle Jack came over to visit us at Aunt Tanya's house.  It was nice spending time with him.

It is so good to see Adam!  I sure missed him.  We all did.  Tomorrow he graduates with his mechanical engineering degree.  I am excited to see his ceremony.

Our Misty

We used to have a dog named Misty.  We loved her very much.  When my Aunt Tanya's dog died and we realized that she and Lexi didn't like each other very much, we gave Misty back to our Aunt.  It has been a treat seeing her again.    Here is Misty entertaining us.  

 P.S.  Julia has been blogging way more than me.  You can check out how the joint bridal shower went.  Faith Through Everything

Happy Birthday Sveta!

We celebrated Sveta's 20th birthday.  It was a special day just for her!  She had two of her friends over-- Kaitlin and Addison!
They swam!

They danced!
They talked!
They ate!
Sveta asked for chocolate pies instead of birthday cake.
They were delicious!

Sveta got many cards and presents.
New Jesus shoes!

Happy birthday to our Sveta!  We could not be more proud of her!
