here! If you live anywhere close to the state of Iowa, we encourage you to please come join us for this year's production (free of charge)! You will not be disappointed and every mile you travel will be well worth it!
commercial Caleb made for the play, which will be broadcasted on multiple cable channels throughout the midwest! We hope to see you there! And if you live too far away and can't come, PLEASE pray for us! This is a $30,000+ endeavor, involving over 300 volunteers from our church and dozens of live animals. Pray for the finances to be provided for, health and safety for us all! We would LOVE to have good weather next weekend, so no one is forced to miss because of bad roads. On Friday night, we have a private showing for our bus kids/families, so please pray that the buses can get out and back safely late at night in sometimes precarious weather.

I just realized I never posted anymore about the end of our fall tour! I'll post a couple photos here and briefly mention where we have been, but the majority of this post will be about what we have been up to since getting home for the holidays!
We spent a couple weeks with meetings in Albuquerque, NM after we finished up meetings in Texas. It was so nice to be able to fellowship with our dear friends, James and Andrea Leeder, while there!
Thankful for our friends, Mark and Lacey Lenentine, also in Albuquerque!
We got to go to the Balloon Fiesta!
My sweet boys! Growing up so fast!!
Jonathan's 14 month photo and stats :)
My mom came into town soon after we got home from our year of travels (in early Nov) to spend time with us while my dad was on a missions trip to China!
My sister, Becki, came to visit then too, with her girls! Her husband was renovating their hardwood floors, so they had to be out of the house for a week!
The cousins had LOTS of fun together!!!
For my 30th birthday (Nov. 9), Caleb took me to Branson (my mom watched our boys at home)! We spent a fun week there just the two of us :)
Loved the beautiful scenery of the Ozarks!
The highlight of our week was definitely seeing Jonah at Sight & Sound! We also got to go on an hour-long behind-the-scenes tour!
Little Jonathan turned 15 months old on Nov. 14!
My little baking assistant! David has really started to love helping out in the kitchen! :)
We got SNOW on Nov. 21! David played out in the snow (and built a snowman with Daddy) for the FIRST time ever!!!
Once again, helping mommy in the kitchen again! This time, he helped me make casseroles on Thanksgiving morning!
We had a great Thanksgiving with sweet friends from our church!
David was SO excited to eat one of the finished products of our cookie-baking adventure the other day!
Happy Thanksgiving to you all! We love you and appreciate your friendship and prayers for us through the years!
