We are sick :(


Well the last few days Matt and I have been sick. It's the normal winter cold, lots of congestion, runny nose, and a severe sore throat and just over all not feeling well! Matt has missed some work and I didn't go to my parents office yesterday. Please pray that we feel better! It's more frustrating than anything. But it gives me time to update my blog! Love Y'all!

More Pics from the Baptism









Kaleb was Baptized November 21,2007





Thanksgiving Eve service little Kaleb was Baptized! Kyle and Andrea asked us to be God parents and I sang "Child of the Father" during the service. We had an open house at Palmer Lake hosted by my parents where everyoen came for soup and salad! What a great event to be thankful for! Kaleb looked adorable in his white tux... in one pic he looks like he's praying! Kyle, Andrea, me and Matt went up for the actual baptism and Matt got to hold Kaleb while he was "sprinkled" :) As you can see in the group picture there was alot of aunts and uncles, great grandparents, grandparents, 2nd cousins, and great uncles...KALEB IS LOVED!!! We have soo much love to give him from both sides of the family he rarely gets to hang out with mom and dad when the whole family is together! WE ARE TRUELY BLESSED!

Quick update without Pics

Ok so this week has been hectic!!! Below are some posts that I got caught up on. Matt is doing great in school and only has one class left of this course. We had the Immanuel Lutheran Invitational Tournament with Kari this weekend. Matt's boys were in the tournament and they won the first game 62-10!!! It was great! Then the second game went into quadruple overtime!!! Unfortuantely they lost by one point. But they played a great game!

We had our youth meeting yesterday and had four boys come and we did turkey bowling!!! it was fun! I am going to try to put together a video and I will post it.

Sooo our newest update is my sister in law (matt's older sister) may come live with us and try to find a job here in the Springs!!!!! we are soooo excited! Please pray that God continiues to give Nikki direction and job opportunities here in Colorado!

Our GODSON Kaleb!



Last night Andrea and Kyle asked Matt and I to be God Parents of Sweet little Kaleb! We are honored! We love that little guy and it's nice to have Kyle home for Thanksgiving. Kaleb is being baptized Wednesday!

CHEESE!


Here's a before and after picture showing you that I got my gap fixed and gums worked on to improve my smile... of course this was rigth after it was done so it's a goofy smile.

Freelance work for Compassion




Ok so it's been a while since I updated the blog.... so your going to get a couple new posts. Here are a couple pictures from my little booth at Compassion International. I do freelance for them by recording their chapel services from this booth while editing in the presentation slides, then i take the tape home and edit in an open and close and burn a DVD. God has blessed us tremendously with this job opportunity. I can still work at my parents and do this job and get some extra money each month. Thank you Lord for always providing! Also i love to hear about this incredible ministry and what they are doing around the world to fight poverty.

Immanuel Falcons Basket Ball Game #1




It's Basket Ball season again! Matt is coaching for Kari at Immanuel Lutheran again this year. He is coaching the 7th and 8th grad boys team and yesterday was their first game and it went well. Unfortuantly the didn't win but they played a good game and came close. I think the score was 13 - 18. Matt loves coaching and the boys seem to like him too! He's so cute in his coaching shirt!

Jeff Caylor @ Ricos






Tonight we went to Rico's cafe to see Jeff Caylor (our churches worship leader) play his original music. He was great. It was very relaxing sitting, chatting, and sipping wine! It was fun and something different!
