Merry Christmas from our house to yours

Merry Christmas Eve!!! On the eve of our Lord's birth, may you remember the real reason for the season. It isn't the presents under the tree but the "birth of baby Jesus, born in a barn to save our sins!! It's Jesus' birthday!!!" (Morgs' take on Christmas). We have been really stressing with Morgan that Christmas isn't about all the gifts but about the birth of Jesus. Our biggest and best gift we will ever receive. May you be richly blessed this season and in the coming year!
Neal, Rachel, Morgan & Boomer
But the angel said, "Do not be afraid. I am bringing you good news. This is happy news for all the people: today in Bethlehem, God's Son was born. You can go see Him. He is wrapped warm and snug in a manger!" (taken from Morgan's Bible) "Happy Birthday Baby Jesus"

On this day too...we want to send a special shout out to our cousin Kevin in Afghanistan (and all the men and women fighting for our freedom). We hope you have a wonderful Christmas Kev!

Still here...

I promise we are still here!! We currently don't have internet at home so the blog has taken back burner! We will be getting internet back again next month since I'm starting classes on my masters!! I'm taking 9 credits! Not sure what I'm thinking but I want to be done with this and Neal has given me his blessing! So I know I will make it! 1 on-line class and 2 weekend classes! We'll be fine!!

I can't believe that I have one more week of school and then two weeks off! It is so crazy to think that 2011 will be here soon! It seems just like yesterday we were all freaking out (well, some more then others) about the whole Y2K stuff! Seriously! Crazy!

Morgs has been doing really well! We decided that daycare wasn't for her and have pulled her from that! She is now a preschool! She goes two afternoons a week still in my building! She started the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and is loving it! It is so fun to see her actually learning something now! Drop off is so much easier (she cries for like 2 seconds and then she's good!) So thankful!

Neal is staying busy at work as well and we are so thankful for that! They are short handed but don't want to hire someone only to potential lay them off or have to cut hours in April! So we are happy with the extra hours and will take that!

Well, I need to get going home...but here's a little up date on us! Have a great weekend
