~Christmas post #4~

PLEASE PRAY FOR US AS WE FLY BACK TO COLOMBIA TODAY!!! FLYING INTERNATIONALLY (ESPECIALLY WITH ALL THE REGULATIONS NOW) IS A NIGHTMARE! PLEASE PRAY THAT THINGS WILL GO SMOOTHLY, THAT WE WILL MAKE ALL OF OUR CONNECTIONS, AND THAT WE WILL BE SAFE. THANK YOU!!

~Little Sleeping Elijah all wrapped up for Winter!~~We enjoyed a delicious supper with the Hoschars in December.~
~We decided to do our family Christmas after we came back from Daddy and Moma's house. It gave us something to look forward to since our hearts were sad saying goodbye to them. So, on Thursday, Dec. 31st we had our family Christmas. Several people had given us money for Christmas so we decided to get our each of our kids an heirloom gift that they could pass down to their kids or use in their home someday. God gave us good deals on these gifts and our children were happy with their gifts!~

~Kimberly got her own dresser to use in her home someday.~

~Sarah got a doll pram and has been enjoying using it with her baby dolls.~

~We had seen this neat antique wagon at a flea market, but didn't get it not knowing that it was such a GOOD deal. Later our dear friends the Kemps purchased it for Noah and brought it to us. THANK YOU, Kemps!!~

~One day I went to Goodwill with my "shopping list" and on that list was a rocky horse for Elijah for Christmas. I had looked all over Goodwill and they didn't have one. But then, when we went to check out there was this hand-carved antique rocky horse up front by the cash register. We were thrilled to find this!!~ ~Little Elijah wearing an outfit that Noah wore posing for a picture with his horse.
(Poor baby, he had a double ear infection when we took this picture.)
~Our family having a Very Merry Christmas! Please excuse the morning "square eyes". =)~


~We filled the kids stockings, and they bought gifts to fill ours. =)~

~Noah wanted to sit beside us when we opened our stockings because he was eager to see us see the gifts that they had purchased for Daddy and I.~
~It was fun finding this lawnmower for our boys at Goodwill for $1.99. =)~
~After unwrappig all of his toys Elijah headed to the kitchen to play with my cans. =)~
~Phillip took our kids on a wintery walk. Here is Elijah all bundled up looking like a ghord or something.=)~

Dearest Heather, Daddy and I are home safe from seeing you all off to Colombia. We are praying for you almost constantly as you return to represent your Savior to your field of calling. You seem so far away, this time it was harder to see you go. But we each have a job to do so you be faithful in South America and Daddy and I will attempt to give our best to our "field" in Westfield. Somehow He will fill the vacancy that your leaving left in our hearts. I love you all six, Moma

PS It was so sweet when you got through customs and Kimberly helped Elijah to see Gramp and I. There was no question he saw us for when his little eyes located us there was that big smile and both hands flew up in a big wave. You all are precious to us! But I know there is a people waiting to welcome you back "home". May God bless and multiply your ministry.

We prayed for your travel just today, without reading your blog and today was your leaving day! God knew!
