Today Andrea, Abby, and I planted a Amaryllis bulb together.

It is supposed to take anywhere from 6 to 10 weeks for the plant to be in full bloom. At that point, I will post another entry showing the status of the flower.

We pray that Abby will enjoy watching the flower grow and that she will learn the wonders of God's creation as it matures from a bulb into a fully bloomed flower.

After seeing several other little girls with pigtails, we figured we would try out the new hair-do on Abby.

Abby has been really patient when Andrea has put her hair up. I guess most girls like their hair being played with.

I am a little biased, but I think it is adorable.

Christmas Card Prayers

We took down our Christmas cards from the fridge and have put them into a basket.

Ever day at dinner Abby picks one of the cards from the basket and we pray for that family.

Here is a picture of Abby participating in our prayer.

Farrar Golden Anniversary

In these day of high divorce rates, a long marriage has become extremely special and rare.

This weekend we went over to Gatlinburg, TN to celebrate Andrea's Great Uncle and Aunt's ( Byron and Bertie ) 50th wedding anniversary. Their marriage and life have been an encouragement to many people.

It was really neat to hear numerous people at the celebration sharing their positive memories from their 50 years of marriage.
