Thank you for visiting my blog today. Originally it was started in 2006 as a way to chronicle our overseas adventure, but it has turned into a place where I share my heart after my husband's untimely death at the age of 40. You can read more about his brief, but fierce battle with a rare cancer on his caring bridge site: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/rob_murphy.

Christ was born to Save! Christ was born to Save!!
We opened one present form the stocking on Christmas eve. The kids all got Hallmark ornaments to mark their own unique personalities. Then it was off to bed with smiles and whispers heard long after lights out.
the DRAMA award goes to..... Noah
This is one of our favorite shots, even though it is blurry. The boys received a joint present and after opening it Noah collapsed on the floor into a puddle of giggling, tears, and "I can't believe it" 's. All that is visable in this shot are his sock covered toes as his brother gazes and the very cool Playmobil knights castle.
For Daring Feats in Facial Expressions
It's SARAH, ladies and gentlemen
Sarah opens her favorite present, her new MP3 player, as Micah merrily looks on. Sarah had some of the greastest expressions this year. She was such a joy because she was just so humbled to have gotten everything she really wanted, and even when I gave her a CD by her favorite Christan singers she didn't tell me it was the same one she already got for her birthday (silly Mom) until I asked her if it was the right one. She said, "Well, it's the one I already have, but this one has a bonus track so it's still good!"
No, you can't, We are keeping her.
After a busy morning opening and putting together presents we played Playmobil, game boys and K'nex for 6 hours. FInally fatigue and hunger getting the best of us we all stormed the kitchen for some potato soup, hot tea and assorted treats.
