I grew up in the country in a small town. I'm so glad I married Heath because he and his family are just the same way. So this is how most of our holidays are spent...with our kids running around on lots of land, chasing dozens of cousins.

Oh and PS - If you're wondering what in the world our son is's his outfit that we had made for him in Nigeria! He's our pale little African boy!

Camp Out!

Here are some pics from our little friend Zac's 6th birthday party! As Heath and I were standing around enjoying the campfire, the guitar-playing, the s'mores and the company, I realized that just one year ago, none of these people were in our lives. And right then and there I stopped and thanked God for what he has done in the past year to bring so many new friends into our lives. It's amazing what can happen when you put yourself right in the middle of your culture...whether that's your neighborhood, your kid's school, your work-place or your faith community. Relationships are so's how lives are changed. Think about it...

Happy Birthday Zac!
