January...Michael is a teenager

Michael turned 13, yep we have another teenager - Michael has always been a go getter:)
He has a great smile and laugh - he is HAPPY and shares that happiness with others. He is a
perfectionist - a great artist. He loves sports -He got up this morning at 6:00am to go work on his shot at the gym - He's a hardworker....has alot of heart - I love that!! I would have to say football and basketball are his favorite sports - depends on the season... - Michael is a loyal brother, he is faithful and has a powerful spirit. I will always remember the time when he seperated his shoulder after many weeks of trying to heal - going to the doctor for his last visit and the Dr. giving him permission to play in his football pads..when we got out to the van I glanced over at him and he had his eyes closed saying a silent prayer. I love that attitude of grattitude he has. Michael brings a lite in our home that has touched all of us. We are so grateful to our Heavenly Father for sending us such a choice spirit.

Michael has such nice friends - One of his friends made this candy bouquet for him for his BIRTHDAY.
Michael loves traditions - he planned another birthday party this year and had some friends over to the house for a movie party. Love this CHILD:)

Ade, I just have to comment! (Usually just a lurker :), but that was such a sweet tribute to your son. He does indeed sound like a truly choice and special person!

I love reading about your lovely family,

OUR FAMILY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OUR FAMILY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Parents need to "play offense" - to capitalize on the impressionable years of childhood by instilling in their sons the antecedents of character. Their assignment during two brief decades will be to trasform their boys from immature and flighty youngsters into honest, caring men who will be respectful of women, loyal and faithful in marriage, keepers of commitments, strong and decisive leaders, good workers, and secure. And of course, the ultimate goal for people of faithis to give each child understanding of scripture and a lifelong passion of Jesus Christ. This is, I believe. the most important responsibility for those of us who have been entrusted with the careand Nurturance of children.



Christmas In Elma!!

We left for WA the 13th of December - I barely made it to Seattle to hand the kids over to my Dad and catch a flight to Atlanta where I would join Trav for his company Christmas Party the next day. Trav and I had a fun get away and were able to do a little Christmas shopping. We stayed Thursday, Friday and Saturday and flew back to Seattle Sunday morning where we stayed until January 3rd - We were able to catch a Elma Boys Basketball game. The boys thought it was really cool looking at all the family(uncles & aunts) names on the walls before you entered the Gym doors. Michael and I went and Chatted with Coach Nadau one afternoon. It was so fun spending time with family and friends
