Thank you Veterans!

Monday, Tina and I went to the National D-Day Memorial to observe Veterans Day and observe/participate in the ceremony there. The prayers and music were powerful. Yes, the Bedford Elementary school chorus (a public school) included "God" in their lyrics and the whole event was very heart-warming and reminded us how blessed we are to live in America and to thank those who have served to maintain our freedom.

Lily the chef

Halloween day, Lily's pre-school had a party and celebrated the community helpers they've been learning about. Lily dressed as a chef!

Halloween 2007 also marked the 4th anniversary of Lily's heart surgery and we are so grateful for how well she is doing. Praise be to God for His blessings.

One car up, two back

On Oct 30, we kept the boys out of school to make a trip to Charleston, WV and meet Laura's mom Mary K, Linda, Alan and Jessica. Daniel was being given a car formerly used by both Ben and Jessica and we met to bring it back home. We ate at the very fun Quaker Steak and Lube. Daniel drove from Beckley, WV (3 1/2 hours).
