Our Family

We have oficially been a family for 18 months now. It's hard to believe how fast time has flown by. We've already conquered quite a bit - but there's still work to be done. One of the most important things we can do is to NOT live in the past - don't dwell on stuff that has happened to us in time gone by. Doing this just makes the present more difficult. Travis and I certainly live in the present. I have never been happier or more loved. I wake up every day thankful to be his wife. We can't get everyone to move forward as we do, but as Travis reminds me, all that matters is "what happens in these four walls." I'm not quite as skilled at tuning out the world! My "bestest" buddy, Cindy, took this photo for us after church one week. Travis had a funnier version in mind and had a little fun with it. Truth be known, I like them both!!

Happy Birthday Travis!

I love it that Trav's birthday is in January (the 4th). With all our spring/summer babies, it's nice to celebrate a January birthday. Since Santa brought Travis an air compressor for Christmas, we bought him a nail gun for his birthday. I've since kepy him busy with construction projects! We celebrated this birthday at home, just the six of us, just as Travis likes it best. A Porterhouse for the birthday boy finished out with strawberry cake!
