Merry Christmas!!

“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you, He is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:11


“If our greatest need had been information,
God would have sent an educator.

If our greatest need had been technology,
God would have sent us a scientist.

If our greatest need had been money,
God would have sent us an economist.

If our greatest need had been pleasure,
God would have sent us an entertainer.

But our greatest need was forgiveness,
So God sent us a Savior.

Roy Lessin



We pray you have a Merry Christmas celebrating Jesus!!

He Did It!!


Hello blogging world! Sorry for the month-long hiatus. Let’s just say life has been . . . colorful lately. More on that later but what we want to celebrate today is Daddy’s finale to three & half years of graduate school. His girls couldn’t be more proud. I mean, seriously, we’re bursting at the seams proud of this guy!! I get a little teary just thinking about this long anticipated milestone. There were days I never thought this moment would come, and I’m positive when Chris was studying at one o’clock in the morning, he felt the same way.

But, with a little bit of elbow grease, a lot of determination & an outpouring of God’s grace . . . it did happen!! After three & half years, forty-eight credit hours and 26 classes, Chris completed his Masters of Business Administration degree from the University of Oklahoma. Mommy & Alexa can’t wait to have Daddy all to ourselves. Sorry we’re a bit stingy at the moment. After all, only three of his twenty-six classes were during the day.

Chris plans to walk in the spring when everything is a little less hectic. However, Alexa & I decided to have a mini-celebration in his honor along with a host of Chris’ family & friends who sent him congratulatory texts & emails the day he finished (Thursday, December 13). We made a sign to tape on our garage door so all of our neighbors could celebrate with us (it got a bit wrinkled from a rainstorm). We actually had a neighbor think he was in the NBA. We also devoured a big cookie cake. I suppose this was also a treat for Mommy too – wink, wink.

We’re soooooooo proud of you honey!! You balanced family, work, school and your walk with God so well the last three years. I look forward to see how God will use your giftings, your mind and your degree for His glory. One thing I know with great confidence – “The Lord has done great things for us and we are filled with joy!” Psalm 126:3


A big squeeze hug for our hero!!
