Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question.

Sunny South Florida

So we packed up the whole crew and headed down to Florida to spend time with our families. My mothers health "scare" turned out to be more serious than we thought, she ended up having triple bypass open heart surgery! Needless to say we spent the majority of our trip back and forth to the hospital. Thankfully she is recovering well. Thank God for modern Medicine, simply amazing. We did squeeze in some family time and the little ones had a blast with all of their cousins. We actually got to spend an afternoon on the beach without the kiddos.

We "thought" we forgot our camera battery charger so I have a unforgivable lack of pictures for our trip. Very unlike me... We found the charger when we were home and unloading the car. What a bummer that I don't have more extended family shots.

Who'd would have thought....that a roll of packing tape meant to throw off what was actually inside of a present would become the biggest hit for all of the kids. First they taped up their big brother and then all of the cousins got into the action.

A bunch of the Cousins went to Build-a-Bear and got to choose their own bear and outfit. Their Christmas present to each other... They had a great time and what great memories for them.

We really have to teach J.C. how to smile without looking like he is in pain.

These kids all get along so great. It is amazing how they just know they are related. They have such a huge bond. I just love it!

How cute is my neice!!! She melts my heart. Never has one child had so much personality. She cracks me up! I love this kid like one of my own.
