A friend who goes to New Hope recently gave me to retro Apple logos. I’m still not sure what to do with the big one, but noticed the little one is just the right size to fit on my MacBook. So here it is. Laura also made a couple of iCookies today showing her MacLove.
Here it is with Flash on. More inside post.
We like to make big deals out of birthdays around here, in fact we don’t celebrate birthdays, but rather birthday weeks. Today begins Beckham’s 3rd Birthday Week. So we gave him a present form his Uncle Todd and Aunt Ashley. It is a cool stuffed bear that vibrates when you push a button it. Here are some pictures from his opening it. Thank you Todd and Ashley! More photos after the link.

Beckham Singing and what not.
Our Texan friend (george) parents’ were at one of our students’ wedding this weekend. Turns out George’s Dad is a cousin of some sort of Ruthie’s dad. So here is a picture of us all together without George. Plus this picture will be my weight lose motivation for the coming year.

This is Beckham with one of his best friends, Anya.
This is Beckham with his advent tree, a gift from the Burtons. This is a while ago. It is covered now. It is a visual way to take children through the Bible at Advent/Christmas time leading up to the coming of Christ. Awhile back he came home from Christmas Pageant rehearsal where he was supposed to be a shepherd who takes care of the sheep. He walked around all morning pretending to have a sheep in his hands he was taking care of. As we were talking about Isaac and the ram which is stuck in the bushes to be the sacrifice in Isaac’s place he asked what a ram is. I told him a ram is like a sheep so he tells me that God is going to take care of the ram. I didn’t have the heart to tell him that God is going to take care of the ram like Italians “take care” of people, so next year we may need to clear that up. More Photos after link. Continue reading
