Life As We Know It (or are trying to know it)

I don't have any pictures to post...just wanted to give an update on our crazy life. Jason started his new sales position November 15th. This means that he is working weekends now. He gets Wednesday/Thursday off, but has found those days to do some side jobs. I am so thankful for the way God is providing for us during this economy AND the fact that housing is not the best line of work to be in right now. His change has made for a change in my work load. Jason does so much to help me out with the kids and the house when he is home. I have missed his help.

We have also had our share of colds and sickness. Poor baby Isaac was diagnosed with pneumonia over the weekend. Thankfully, it wasn't bad enough to be in the hospital, but we have had some sleepless nights. He is doing much better.

It's just amazing how this time gets so busy. We are really looking forward to Thanksgiving and spending some time with Jason's family. It's been too long since we have spent time with Will and Lauren. The kids are really excited. We have much to be thankful for as well. I am so thankful for how rich we are in this life...our family, church, neighborhood and mostly the faithfulness of God.

Okay, I will just include this one picture so you can see how kitty is doing too. Poor Harley!

Baby's 1st Haircut

Well, we took Isaac on Thursday for the last 1st haircut our family gets to enjoy. It's really silly how long we let it get. It fell over his shoulders nicely. On Wednesday, 2 people in the grocery told me how precious our baby girl was. It's one thing when your child has no hair, it's another when you can actually do something about it. He looks so handsome now. Needless to say from the pictures, he did not enjoy his trip one bit.

The People You Meet Along the Way...

Today I went out to Zionsville to see the house that Jason is finishing. While there I met a man that lives next door to the homeowner named Larry Houser. Larry invited us over to meet him and show the boys his dogs. Larry's friendship with Jason has been very rewarding. You see, Larry was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Jason had an opportunity to talk with Larry about eternity and his relationship with the Lord. Through this conversation, Jason discovered that Larry was already a brother in Christ! Larry has an amazing testimony as he endures chemotherapy, weariness and his future. If you would like to read more about the conversation Jason had with Larry, you can read it at Jason's excerpt is written on October 20th (the person who writes the blog called him Justin). It's really great. Here are some pictures of our day at Larry's.
