The other day, Marty managed to stick his head through the handle of a plastic bag containing recently purchased and quite fragile Christmas tree ornaments. View some of the ensuing mayhem below.

To celebrate our first wedding anniversary we planned a little trip to Boston and Cape Cod for the weekend. We had a very nice time! On Saturday we went into Boston for the day and enjoyed a swan boat ride in the Boston Public Garden. Then we went to Fenway Park for a tour of the stadium. We then took the T to Haymarket and wandered around the cobble stone streets. On Sunday we drove to Cape Cod. On our way we stopped in the little town of Plymouth. We visited Scargo tower and then rode bikes on the Rail Trail. At the end of our day we visited the Chatham light house and took pictures of the beautiful houses of Chatham.

Silver Prints: Baby Totes

Thursday, August 20th, 2009

The Baby Tote has been my number one selling item!  I have sold 10 so far! It is awesome!  The Baby  Tote can be used for napping a tiny baby, for changing a little one, or as a play mat for a toddler.  The Baby Tote unfolds and unzips to lay flat.  Two large handles make it easy to carry and three pockets are great for storing toys, bottles, blankets, or diapers! There is also a ribbon loop to hook a paci or favorite toy!  The lining is a soft flannel.  To order one visit www.silverprints.etsy.com.  Message me if you would like to see more photos!

We’ll Never be Rejected

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

“Why am I so blessed? I am blessed because, in the most painful moment in human history, Jesus willingly subjected himself to the rejection of his Father. He took on my sin and allowed himself to be rejected. In this unthinkable moment of substitution, the Trinity was torn apart as the Father turned away the Son. Here is what you and I have to understand: Jesus was willing to suffer the horrible rejection of his Father so that you and I would never, ever have to experience it ourselves.”

– Paul David Tripp, A Shelter in the Time of Storm

Tonight we picked up our Family Combo from Omaha Steaks as mentioned in my previous post.

I took some pictures to chronicle the event!

(Yes I am a dork!  And please don’t mind my messy hair!  And make note: the picture of Peter was taken under protest!)

Home with our bounty!

Strategic Choice

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009

Your spouse was a strategic choice made by a wise and loving God. Selected by Him, for you, from the beginning of the world, your spouse is an essential part of God’s rescue mission for your life.
