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.

Our favorite family Christmas tradition...

We usually go to the mountains to cut down our Christmas tree. We grew up in South Florida so cutting down your own Christmas tree is big stuff for Marc and I. We usually make a weekend out of it and drive a few hours to a great little farm in the mountains. Since we will be going away for Christmas, this year we stayed a little closer to home. It was still a great little place and a fun afternoon.

Thank God for "Mama#2", Finn absolutely adores her...the feeling is mutual.
Thank God for Collin who plays along with his dorky mama saying,
"everyone point to OUR tree"
Kobi got the first "hack" at the tree.

Now Jack's turn...
A good day :)

How fun! Looks like a beautiful day---had to laugh at the growing up in FL---we were in Ft. Lauderdale for Turkey day:-)

Before Nolan & Karrigan fell asleep tonight, we brought up how we went to China---and how crazy that was--Nolan said, "And we didn't know anybody except Finn." That boy will never forget her.

How fun! Yep, nothing like that here in Florida. So sad!
