Each member of our family is so different, like individual components of a symphony. But, like a symphony, each part is important to the overall structure and sound of the piece. We all work together to make a beautiful sound...our family. Just as the Lord knit us together in the womb, He is now knitting us together as a family, for His glory, outside the womb.

Snow Day!

Today we had a beautiful snowfall! I love when the snowflakes fall so slow and calmly. Brad once told me this saying he heard from someone, "Big snow, small snow. Small snow, big snow." Meaning, if the flakes are big, there won't be much snow and vice versa. This is almost always true. Today we had small snow, big snow. So, after church and lunch, Finn headed down for his nap and Cadence suited up to go play outside. First, she rolled around in the snow in the backyard, stuck her tongue out to catch a few snowflakes, and tried a little bit of the snow. Then, she and Brad headed out front to shovel the driveway and walk. After they finished that task, Cadence, with the assistance of Brad, built her first snowman! He looked great! Brad said the snow was kind of dry, so it didn't stick together very well. This resulted in a bit of a shrunken head snowman, but he was cute. In the midst of snowman building, we had a visit from a girl scout who was selling cookies. I thought that was very smart on her part, because more people will be home when it's snowy out and they will feel sorry for the poor little girl walking around the neighborhood in the cold snow. It worked on us! We ordered some Samoas and Tagalongs. Hope you enjoyed your snowy day!


  1. A beautiful snowy day. The snowman was a bit sad, but at least he gets a pipe out there in the cold! I love you SO MUCH!

  2. What a lovely snow person Cadence made! I ordered Girl Scout cookies, too.
    LOVE you!
