Tent Raising!

"our" church is a mission church. We have some rented space but our hope for the future is a piece of land we are buying. We have been worshiping outdoors there as the weather permitted, and a few times when it didn't really! New Life Lutheran Church raised a tent this morning giving us the ability to "sort of" thumb our noses at the weather! we are excited!

Valentines Day 2-14-14

was a few days ago! For the first time since Hallie became our daughter there was someone besides her mother ( and my wife) Renee' at our Valentines Day Date Dinner. I have always taken them to "Dinner", not just eating out. And it has been great- even when Hal was only 18 months old. So this Valentines Hallie brought up bringing a friend and we said yes. They were GREAT dinner companions, good manners with a sense of humor! Now you may say,, what kind of father lets his daughter bring a BOY!! to his valentines date for her and her mother?? Well, look at the smile on my daughters face and then you should understand. Unfortunately, I may see my daughter in tears brought by some boy- but for right now my memory is this evening and those smiles, on both of their faces!

My Mothers 92nd Birthday

Mother turned 92 today! Renee' baked her an apple pie ( her favorite) and Hallie fed her the first bite! I ate my slice so fast she didn't think I got a piece and insisted I eat a second, I've always been her favorite!
