A Dad's gotta do what a Dads gotta do.

This is Tessa's kitchen that will be under the tree when we do our
Christmas tomorrow morning. I just can't believe there are so many
parts!!! Maybe I will take it back and buy a doll...

Off the Charts

Braden had his 4 month check-up today (yeah, I know he will be 5 months on Sunday.)  I've been curious to see just how big he is. Last visit he was in the 95th percentile for length and weight.  Well today he weighed in at 19 pounds, 1 ounce and was 27 3/4 inches long!  Compared to the average 5-month-old, he is off the charts for both length and weight.  According to his doctor, he is the size of an average 9-month-old.  No wonder my arms are always tired!  Here's a picture of my big boy just to make you smile!



Motorcycle Ride for Drew…

Drew, just like I promised, here is some video of Daddy riding a motorcycle in Haiti.  This is how I get around when I am down here…

Thank you to Laptop Donor…

Recently, a friend of mine donated the funds for a laptop to be used by RMI’s child sponsorship program in Haiti.  Here is the guy that is using the laptop saying thank you.

I finished Crazy Love...

I read this book yesterday on the plane and before bed last night.  Wow.  I can't wait to tell you about it, but for now, I just have to process.  There is so much to consider.  To evaluate.  One thing I am convinced of...  I need to respond.


My Flight in Haiti...

Yesterday, I visited with our missionaries Billy and Debbie Moses and Gary and Marilyn McLaughlin.  I had lunch with Billy and Debbie, then went up and sat in on a Hope for Kidz meeting with Gary, Marilyn and Benson.  Benson is a Haitian guy that is working with HFK.  I then came back and rested a little after the long day of travel.  Then, I had dinner with Billy and Debbie, and then went up and visited with Gary and Marilyn again (we watched a little football).

Here is a video of my flight from Port au Prince to Les Cayes Haiti.

Drew has gotten into drawing recently...

Drew has my creative gene I believe.  He constantly wants to draw or create.  He loves making creations.  Here is one of his creations.  He is now writing his name, and drawing people and flowers.  It is amazing to watch his creative abilities grow.  This is a drawing of a family member, but I won't tell you who...

What a Difference a Year Makes

I was looking at last year's tree decorating pics and just can't get over how much Tessa has changed in just one year's time (15 months old vs. 27 months old.) I think the big difference is she went from 4 teeth to a mouthful and her hair has grown so much!  She is a little girl, no longer a baby!  She is so sweet and sassy at the same time.  She is our "actress"-- can change into character in a moments notice!  She has changed so much, I just had to share...

First HD Video...

Ok, a few notes...

This video get's a little boring (so says Becky), so don't feel the need to watch the whole thing.

If you want to watch the HD version, you will have to click on the HD button, which will take you to the site of the hosted HD video.

I hope you enjoy...
